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

  3. In the words of Barbra Streisand, I’m feeling all verklempt”. You are so sweet. I just believe that you are a super talented person that is still being discovered. Many of us love your talent and your wonderful sense of humor. I feel great being around you because always keep me in stitches. I so miss seeing you at shows. Never give up on your dreams, it’s never too late for us “broads of a certain vintage”. 😀
