Looks like everyone had a marvelous time. What a wonderful thing to do-meet up with other cuties!
I am so happy you all had such a lovely day, the pictures clearly show you had the most wonderful time.
What do thy say " a picture is worth a 1000 words" this is so true, it was a beautiful day and time! Wish you could have been with us Martine.
Martine, some day. Visiting your beautiful land is on my bucket list.
There are no other words that WOW..... It looks like you had a blast....
What a delight to share in the reunion. I wish I could still drive the 6 hours on my own, I would have been there too. But this was so much fun to see the the pictures and read the comments. We Cuties are a close and loving bunch even with the distances between us.
Wish you could have been there also Karen. You are so very right, we are a close and loving bunch!
Next time I'll come pick you up first.
I am oh so glad you were all able to meet up and have a wonderful day Love the gifts. Hugs from Down Under
Oh, looks like you all had such fun. I was just through Birmingham last Friday. Would love to have met you all. Glad you were able to finally meet your long time friends!!
If you come to Bham again, I can get there in less than 2 hours.
Yes, ma'am, give us a day or two warning. I'm three hours from there.
Such wonderful pictures and memories. This is what being a cutie is all about. So happy you were all able to get together. Thank you for sharing your experience with the rest of us who weren't able to meet! Hugs!
You are exactly right seems I wrote just what it meant to be a cutie 7 or 8 yrs ago. I still stand by it. To be a cutie is a marvelous think
So thrilled that I got to go. Maybe you can make it next time.
So nice to hear ya all had fun wish i was near a cutie lol hugs all
Come to my pond with your birds?
Come on down my dear Carolyn . would love to have you and your hubby
Carolyn, maybe someday we can swing really far North.
Wow, what a joy fest. I'm so happy for all of you and it was so entertaining to read all of these posts.
It was joyful, and wonderful!
Wish you could have been there.
Fun and pretty group of young ladies........
Vicki it was , a group of young ladies and 1 old Hen LOL
Don't say that, it means I'm an old hen too!
Thanks Vicki and you two beautiful 🐥 are still kicking.
What fun! So happy for all of you to be able to see each other!
I too am feeling a little left out! How wonderful for you ladies to have this experience. Great gifts and memories!
I hope there will be other times and other places when others can join us I hope
Me too Mrs.Lillian !
We'll pick a central location and send up flairs next time.
I am soooooooooooooooo jealous but sooooooo happy for you all. Love to see your smiling faces.
Oh Angie maybe we will get a bus to Southern Cal one day.
You never know!
Oh What fun that would have been!!
Much much fun was had by all . I have to admit I am whupped today but would do it all again in a heart beat.
Wish it were a convention instead of just a brood. :)
Jerrilyn forgot to mention the beautiful infinity scarves she gave us. Mine was beautiful and my favorite color, purple. Thank you again Jerrilyn, Lillian
You are so welcome. Love you.
Infinity scarves are perfect for the occasion. I know Jerrilyn's love for you is infinite.
I would have loved to been there to hug you all.
And mine for her, love her like she was one of my own. Sometimes I feel I have a myriad of daughters I have never seen here on Cute. IF i was affluent I would try to visit them all. LOL
I plan to wear my beautiful scarf so what for a photo. Thanks again Jerrilyn !
My true pleasure.
Oh what a great set of pictures. Meeting other cuties face to face is very special and we can all see what a great time that you were having. Birmingham UK is where some of the UK Cuties have met at sewing shows... so Birmingham is a great place for Cuties wherever it is in the world. As Sarah says it would have been great to have been there too.
Cuties putting Birminghams on the map! lol
I've already said we would have made a name for ourselves there in the Gardens
I think by the time our bus got to our next stop everyone on it had heard about our meeting!- lol- we defiantly got the attention of a lot of other onlookers too!
What amazing, wonderful photographs. How I would love to have been a fly on the wall - better still to have met in person. Certainly a day to remember
So wish you could have been here. You would have won the award for furthest travel!
Oh Sarah I wish you could so I could have given you a big hug!
And Mrs Lillian gives great hugs!!!
Oh! what great memories for you all and I'm so delighted that you all got to meet. I agree with Marian, Australia is so far away from all you guys, but maybe one day - you just never know. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful pictures of you all. I love the gifts and particularly the Roosters. Love Chris
Memories that will last forever for me.
Me also I'm already putting them in my Memory Book Toogie gave us.
Now you're talking!
What a wonderful day you all had, sometimes I wish Australia wasn't so far away then I could visit with you all to. Marian
I wish it were nearer, too. We could take a cruise?
Now that's an idea!
how wonderful you were able to meet each other and had such a great time together. This is how special memories are made. The gifts are beautiful, but I suppose the most beautiful gift was feeling the friendship and the coming together....Thank you for sharing these precious moments with us. Hugs for you all )))
You are so right about the most beautiful gift, the friendship and real in person hugs. Hugs back to you sweet friend.
There is absolutely nothing like loving and adoring a friend and knowing and feeling it in return. Wish everyone could have been there. We really would have rocked Birmingham. LOL
I wanted to be there also, but it was just not possible. Thank you Toogie for inviting me. What a wonderful place to meet and I am so glad you had so much fun. If I were 25 yrs younger, I would have struck on on my own to get there.
I'm sorry you missed this one Kay. We said we wished you could have made it.
We did wish you had been able to come join in on the excitement!
Well, move over Rescuer...I am JEALOUS too!!! What a wonderful way to spend the day...how lucky you all are to have been able to arrange your schedules to meet on Toogie's vacation...So, Toogie...when you coming to Southern California...for that matter, when are the rest of you coming to Southern California??? The gifts are lovely and extra special as you were able to receive them in person...looks like great weather too...lucky, lucky lucky ladies!!!
I'll ride that Mercedes bus to Southern California with toogie.
And if I can I will too!!
Maybe meet in the "middle" ?? I am sure Utah is very near the middle of somewhere. ;)
We can do Utah!- lol
Yes! On our way to Calif.
Okay I'm officially jealous! I can see that you had a lot of fun and I'm so glad that you were able to get together. Thank you for sharing this memory.
I know right. Can't say enough about how much fun it was.
It will be a memory I shall hold in my heart forever. So very wonderful to finally get to hug my sister Cutes. You have no idea what it meant to me or how much I love you. It's like we have been in each others lives forever. Thank you for your gifts, thank you Jerrilyn for bringing your precious husband and Toogie for your sweet friend, Trudy, and you Betsey for being such a dear friend. It was truly a joyous time and my girls really commented on how super nice you all were. Love you Lillian. PS. We really must do this again sometime!
Oh, it's going to happen.
Do it again and maybe i can come. Kay
Your girls are just as sweet and funny as you are. Oh and as pretty, too.
I too felt like we had known each other always... Kinda like the girls on Steel Magnolia!
So, the best lesson of the day is your Cute friends are even more fun in person, even though they are a lot of fun right here. And the second lesson is, when Toogie announces her next trip, sign up to meet up with the Sisters! Four Cuties and one Cute husband today. I'm just saying that 'cause I got that he has a bit of an ego. Someone was watching Mike push off the grandson on the bike in a video on cell phone and said "he's so cute." And of course Mike said, "Why thank you." As for how I found out, I think I read it from a Toogie post and then hunted up a phone number for Miss Lillian and got details.
I'm glad that you did see it and were able to come.
He's a big tease for sure, but he is so good to me.
My ego is only as large as my love for Jrob. After 47 years of marriage to this fine lady I must say it is hard to be humble. Thank you to all the Cuties in Birmingham for letting me see the love and fun! ~~ mrob
Thank you mRob for loving my friend and keeping her entertained. Her sanity is very important to us. May you be blessed with many more memorable years of love.
Thank you Betsey for all the gifts! I looked at my Anitagoodesigns book as much as I could between stops. I am enjoying it immensely. Thank you for driving such a long way too. What a surprise !
What a wonderful day you each will cherish!! Love the photos of you each! Hope you each float in the clouds with happy memories for a very long time! What a treasure! Pam
Pam, it felt just like when you go home after being gone a long time.
