My Special friends:
One lady who is special to me is my friend HELEN. We met through the New York EMPIRE guild and quickly realized we were both from Minnesota... I think that thread bound us together. I call her my quilt mom... Helen is also in our modern 8 create group,and we did a Holiday swap, the little quilt above is what I gave her on Saturday, along with a BIG hug. I am so thankful for guilds to have brought her and so many other great women into my life!
Can I share with you some of my pals?

Alliance for American quilts...
Michele Muska, Me, Luke Haynes, and Marie Bostwick...You may note that LUKE is in this picture, no, he wasn't at my girls night, sillies!... But he did come to the guild meeting to show us a couple of his fabulous Quilts... I have been so impressed with the fast bonds I've made with everyone on the board... Dedication, and passion for saving our stories and Quilt history! They have quilts auctioning on ebay right now that help support our programs.. hop over and see some of them... maybe you will find a great gift there!
Meg Cox, Allie Aller, Jodie Davis, Marie Bostwick and myself... This was my first time meeting Allie. Having been a fan of her gorgeous crazy quilts, it was a joy to meet someone I've been chatting with so much on facebook!
Get your gal friends together. Make the effort to make those connections face to face... it's high on my list for making a happy life... Connect with people, share yourself.
This dinner came at the end of a really wild/hard/emotional week. My aunt came through her brain surgery without even a headache...My Mother, still waiting on her news for what she needs done... The quilt share,cancer tests, memorials and births... The circle of life was a driving force this week in this house.
I am so grateful for the people my life.
