Favorite Friendship Quotes

The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart. ~Elisabeth Foley

A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even if you are half-cracked. ~Author Unknown

True friends stab you in the front. ~Oscar Wilde

Good friends are like fancy chocolates - it's what's inside that makes them special.

A true friend warms you by her presence - trusts you with her secrets - remembers you in her prayers.

One good reason to only maintain a small circle of friends is that three out of four murders are committed by people who know the victim.-- George Carlin

An old friend will help you move. A good friend will help you move a dead body.-- Jim Hayes

A friend drops their plans when you're in trouble, shares joy in your accomplishments, feels sad when you're in pain. A friend encourages your dreams and offers advice--but when you don't follow it, they still respect and love you.

Great Weekend & End of month

well finally the end of the month, well tomorrow is anyway. :) Had the most wonderful time last weekend a few of us friends that got together last sept for a mini retreat decided to do it again. it was so much fun, from someone getting stuck in ditch because of the snow & Ice, to the hhmmmm handy dandy wreaker man ( we don't even go there) that needed a set of suspenders, pushing cars in the snow, fish tailing up the hill to the retreat place ( yep that was me, was fun) and once we all got there we didn't leave. Well a couple gals ventured in to town for a fabric fix & picked us up pizzas she had 4-wheel drive. We had a snow/ice storm come in on a thursday, but us quilters didn't let that slow us down, we are hard core quilters. Or maybe more like we really really wanted to get a away from home. :0) We had fabric, food, fireplace, fun and friends what more could we ask for in a weekend.

Here is the top I got put together still needs a couple borders they didn't get on that weekend cause I didnt' bring the extra fabric. It is called Indian Summer It was in a quilt sampler magazine. going to put a small navy border and then a larger red border.

One of the gals had the quilting fairy visit her and kept bringing her lint rolling brushes, those were mulipling like rabbit, then they all ran away and then showed up again before she traveled home. I leave next weekend for another retreat which I'm sure will be just as so much fun~~~ if you can ever get away to a sewing retreat do it, is lots of fun with friends. Heck just invite some friends over to just sit & sew if you got the room, you'll be so glad you did.

We do not love people because they are beautiful

They seem beautiful to us because we love them

~~~Russian Proverb~~

Where did February go??

Wow hard to believe february is almost over. This has been one wild month. Between kids having the flu along with husband, taxes done & sent in, and basic life stuff I'm ready for a weekend just for me. Well I'm hoping & praying I get that this weekend coming up. A few of us friends are getting together for a weekend of sewing, laughing, and good food to get us over this crazy Ohio weather. This Ohio Weather has been from Ice/freezing rain, snow, sleet and in temps of the 50's. never know what it is going to be.

Well i finished up another quilt on miz gracie, well actually two done. My cousin's dad quilt of deer she made for him for christmas, but she didn't get the top done until right before christmas & I didn't have time to machine quilt it until now. I also got my aunt purdy's quilted out too, just need to put the binding on it. I finished all of my embroidered bible quilt blocks now to decide on what kind of sashing or setting to use with them. here is a picture of them.

They are done on unbleached muslin, 8 1/2"x11". So thought about doing flying geese, gulp, that would be a lot to do. maybe scrappy in fabrics?? wanting something to make them go wow!!

will have to think about.
