WOW!!! I started my blog, and then life got ahead of me. I could give you lots of "excuses" but the bottom line is I am back and back for good daily. Let's just say, I agree with William H.Mauldin, I feel like a fugitive from the law of averages. On my first post I mentioned a gift, I am updating this to get my blog going. I will post a picture tomorrow. I will pick at randon from the names of people that respond to my blog. The date for the draw is October 28.

I have only completed one project since my first post. I did complete a fall table runner, that I gave as part of a wedding gift. The 1930 quilt is a slow go. If anyone would like to swap out some 1930 fabric please contact me, I have plenty but I only want two squares of each fabric in my quilt so I need more. PLEASE!! I simply need 10-2.5 inch blocks and I will swap-you name it and I probably have it to swap.

I am considering this a new start and with that I wish to share with you:

A Frienship Blessing

May you be blessed with good friends.

May you learn to be a good friend to yourself.

May you be able to journey to that place in your soul where there is great love, warmth, feeling and forgiveness.

May this change you.

May it transfigure that which is negative, distant, or cold in you.

May you be brought in to the real passion, kinship, and affinity of belonging.

May you treasure your friends.

May you be good to them and may you be there for them;
may they bring you all the blessings, challenges, truth, and light that you need for your journey.

May you never be isolated.

May you always be in the gentle nest of belonging with your anam cara.

(anam cara is celtic for soul friend)
From the book: Anam Cara by John O'Donohue

Hugs from me to YOU!
