Westwinds and my friend


I am going to start something new for my blog. I am going to link to another blog I read when I post in case you haven't found that blog yet. Today's is Coastal Stitching, which is a fun blog I found when she posted to my site. She does awesome stitching and her site is so friendly and reminds me of the beach and ocean, well, except for the picture she posted today :).

My friend Sue came over yesterday. We were going to stitch but we never quite got to that part. :) We talked and she helped me choose which of my new silkweaver fabrics go with which patterns. It was so much fun. We matched up about 6 fabrics. Ever since I have known Sue, whever we get together the time flies by and before we know it, 3 hours or more have passed. It is so cool to have a friendship like that. Here is my progress on Westwinds by Barrick Samplers (now Carriage House Samplings) and it is on 32ct Days Gone By linen. I love, love, love this fabric. Thanks again Sue!

    Sounds like you two had a lovely time-it's like that too when I get with my friend. Your new start on Westwinds looks beautiful on that fabric.

    Glad you had a fun time with Sue - she really has an eye for matching fabric with designs. I love Days Gone By - I'll be stitching Chatelaine's Egyptian Garden on it. Cool idea to share blogs we might not have found before...I'll check this one out!

    Westwinds is looking great, Ann :)
    I tell you, I have some friends I just couldn't do without :) They mean the world to me I sure wish I could sit down with them, but as they are oceans away I can't do that :):) but our online time together is just pricless :) Glad you and Sue had a nice visit :)

    Stitching friends are the greatest and our times together fly at jet speed. I just visited my best stitchy friend, Connie. We don't always get much stitching done, but inspiration abounds!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm surprised how many people have found my blog already since I'm new. But I love it! Your stitching is wonderful and those fabrics that you won, woohoo, talk about having some stuff to drool over ;)

    Sounds like you have a best friend call Sue too - just like me!! We also have loads of fun choosing fabrics too! I have Royal Holiday as a WIP on Days Gone By and agree with you - it's wonderful! Take care and happy stitching, Nicola x
