That has been an often stated sentiment lately with a number of my online stitching friends lately. This is such a true statement and I have found that meeting others online who share my passions for needlework or decorating has enriched my life. I am not going to combine the two blogs so I will continue to share my needlework with you all here and look forward to many wonderful things to create in 2008! Thank you all once again for all the comments left this past year.
In my last entry, I shared the quilt that I made for my friend Diane. She and I met through a Yahoo stitching list and we connected instantly having lots in common. We started emailing privately as well as on the stitching list. I love keeping up with her life over in Michigan.
She made me this adorable pillow this year for a Christmas gift. I just love it and it matches my patchwork quilt on our bed so perfectly. I will use it as a part of a spring display downstairs but I love the thought of seeing it each day on my bed and thinking of a good friend.

She also sent me the cutest acorn salt and pepper shakers. One thing that Diane and I share is a great love of the autumn and all the things that go with it ~ sights, colors, smells, etc.. We both love acorns. I don't think I can wait until next autumn to use these.
Thank you so much Diane and thank so being such a great friend!
