Bloggers are the best!

This 21st century pen pal thing we call a Blog is really tremendous. I have enjoyed so meeting (in writing) so many wonderful people in such a short period of time.

I have enjoyed participating in sew-a-longs and swaps. But sometimes Blog friends send you something just to make your day!

When Randy (Barrister’sBlock) came to visit Maine a few weeks ago she brought me this beautiful pin cushion. Look at those tiny pieces!  

When I mentioned to Janet (Rogue Quilter) that I loved homemade soap, she sent me some of her own. All I can say is mmmm… it smells so good and feels even better! 

 And, when Kevin (Kevin the Quilter) went to Houston last week he sent me this fabulous photo! Vanna could not have done it better! BTW you should check out Kevin's post of some of the sensational quilts he saw in Houston. There is a lot of talent in the quilt world today!

 So, just a big old “thank you” to all of you who read and comment on my Blog. I 
appreciate you all.

and here is another great photo of Teri and Kara (Telling Stories Through the Needles's Eye)

Thanks so much! I keep kicking myself for not going to Houston when I had a quilt there. But, I'm more sorry that I didn't get to meet some of my wonderful Blog friends in person. Next year for sure!


  1. Isn't it fun having like minded friends that share the same passion in various parts of the world! It's a great way we can interact as artists! VANNA! LOLOLOLOLOL Thanks for the shout out Wendy, and congrats again!

  4. Wendy, I think you are absolutely correct. Who ever thought that we could make such great friends through blogging? What an unexpected surprise!!!

  5. I agree with you--and I love thinking of blogging as penpals of a new age.
    Randy is a sweetheart. And Kevin is a hoot. Love his Vanna impression! *LOL*
    Glad you like the soap.
    And a BIG congrats on your ribbon winning quilt!

  6. I have had pen pals over the years since I was a child. I do like the modern version of it. And so easy to send pictures to go along with the "letters".
