Friendship is The Tie That Binds

My friend Erin and I have known each other over 15 years, but yet we feel we have been friends for all our lives; as we think of each other as sisters. We have watched transitions in each others lives, all along supporting those changes where we can. We know when to give each other space and when to reach out for moral support and guidance if it is needed or just a listening heart. I am truly blessed by this friendship and I sincerely hope you all have found a friend like mine. This photo is of Erin and I tying a fleece blanket that will continue to carry our memories forward, just like those women before us that shared their hopes and dreams over a cup of tea, or quilting a quilt ,sharing their most innermost thoughts.

  1. While at Cyrstal's wedding I realized how lucky I am to have a 'best friend'. Most people are not as fortunate as we are to find a true 'kindred spirit' friend, and to continue that relationship for years to come. Something we should cherish and never take for granted!

  2. You are both so sweet I am not at all surprised that you mean so much to each other!
    I am not doing the quilt show this year. I will be doing Timi's show in WA March 5 and 6 and then the following Saturday the 4 Friends Sale!!
    Hope to see you there!
    JOY!

  7. We must be thinking alike again! That was a very good thought, and it is so important to cherish those friendships! There is a verse somewhere that says, "A friend sticks closer than a brother" and this post is a reminder of that. -Karen
