Friends…

6 11 2009

My husband and I moved to southern Illinois about 8 1/2 years ago.  We lived in Edwardsville, which is across the river from St. Louis, MO.  I left several good and close friends when I moved. Most of them were friends I had made after I began to learn quilting and our friendships involved quilting together.  The quilting community has good people and good friendships.

Yesterday I made a trip to meet up with one of my friends to celebrate birthdays and exchange gifts and spend time together.  We try to meet up twice a year. It was good to see her and we went to the Alco store to do some shopping before having lunch.  We found really GREAT  bargains on area rugs.

My friend has taken up knitting since I left…this is what she made me for my birthday….thanks, Vicki, I miss ya’ and love ya’. Isn’t it gorgeous!

What a gorgeous gift, Kathy! Lucky you. It is really hard when you are not geographically close to your dearest friends. Ask me how I know.

Hi Rayna and thanks for leaving a comment…yeh, I haven’t been able to make many really really dear friends down here. I have one whom I love a lot…an older woman who talked me into starting a quilt guild and being an election judge…she is my dearest friend here…a very sweet lady.
It’s hard making friends in a new area. But I am still very much in touch with the friends I left and once a year a few of us meet up for a quilt retreat..all except for the ONE who won’t drive herself there….you know who you are!
