I have been so blessed. Good friends in real life and good friends in blogland. The world of blogging has opened the door to many friendships with people around the globe. Friends whom I would not have met otherwise.
Yesterday, I received more evidence of this when I went to the post office. Linda so graciously sent me one of her adorable pin cushions and a leather strap (so I can make her Lotus bag -- once I find the perfect fabric). The pin cushion is so very cute. It is small enough to fit right in my hand.
I've been thinking about putting it with my on-the-go embroidery supplies so I can show it off everywhere I go. But my problem is that, even though I take my supplies with me, I rarely get a chance to take them out of my tote.
This morning, I had to quickly vacuum the house, after a certain 6-year-old boy ran through the house (before school) with muddy shoes. Shortly after I finished vacuuming, I heard the door bell ring. I'm always so hesitant to answer the door so early in the morning. (Who is visiting at this hour?) To my great surprise, it was my friend, Kim and her daughter, Kallie. She came with donuts. We sat and talked and had a great time. It was so much fun. I wonder, why don't I do that?!? Why don't I just show up at a friend's house in the morning with donuts for a chat? I guess it may be because I have so many others to drag along with me. But I need to do that!
Friends. Whether in real life or in blogland. I can't live without you. Thank you, Linda. Thank you, Kim. Thank you, friends.
