Sometimes it takes a little bit of effort to get friends together , but when it all comes together it is a joy. There are four of us who have been friends since our children were babies. 30 years later and we have reconnected and are planning to meet up for days of fun, food, chat and creativity. Lots of water has passed under the bridge and we have all taken different paths, but there is no doubting our shared love of family and food and creating.

The past few months have been a journey and I have found my creative spirit. I am loving taking the time to enjoy collecting and putting together fabrics, lace, trimmings, buttons, words, papers. I am always on the lookout for interesting items that can be used in my creations. Sometimes just putting a few bits together and taking photographs is enough to make me happy. I also love it when I can spend 30 minutes sitting quietly and hand stitching a little pocket of textile delight.

I am hoping that our creative juices are flowing and the joy and therapy of stitching continue and here is to our next get-together.
