Quilting Friends

I am often reminded of the saying, "Some people come into our lives and quickly go, others come and leave footprints on our hearts." Many of the folks leaving imprints on my heart these days are from the quilting world. Today, one in particular comes to mind, Connie James , the Fiber Goddess. What a complete delight she is. One of the things I really love? She makes me feel good about "me." How is that for selfish? But, truthfully, I think that's what makes a lovely friend, one that adds to your life, supports you at every step, leaves you smiling, energized and looking forward to the next time you meet. Well, girlfriend, you meet those criterion and exceed it. My wish is that I make her feel the same way about herself.

I do feel that I slight some of you in that regard. Several wonderful folks out there actually take the time to write comments and lend support and kind words. How do I thank you guys, be a better friend? I have yet to figure that out but if you could feel my giddy heart when I am touched by you, you would know what your lives add to mine and how appreciative I am. My dilemma? how to reciprocate. Sigh.

Time for some new images....


  1. Ah, Dianne! You are expecting too much from yourself! It is US that are reciprocating because you are taking the time to share a bit of your life with us as well as the fabrics (even The Unworthies!! :-) Our quilting world is awesome & made up of fabulous people! I meet them everywhere I go. It's always fun to find bloggers - it opens my world! Thank YOU for this!

    (And, of course, LOVE the fabric!!)

    darlin' you're doing that every day that you post here and inspire me. After you sent me the quilt pattern ( and I did not even win the draw LOL), your style became my study - and I began planning the quilted strip pieced cover for my motorcycle seat - photos will be sent to you upon completion

    merry holidays, dear lady
