Old Friends

I spent some time with my dear friend Kate today. She used to live about 45 minutes away from me, & she just moved into a house that is less than 2 miles from my house. I was so excited to have her near by. I like to tell people that it's all her fault that I am a quilter today. She is the one who got me started. She first piqued my interest, when we were working together in an Internal Medicine office. The same office where I first got to know my other dear friend, Mindy. They are both like sisters to me.
This was the birthday card I gave Kate today. Her birthday was a few days ago. I made 3 very similar cards.
We sat & worked on dresses. Kate had to finish one for her daughter Hannah, for a party tonight. I did some seam ripping on (Mindy's DD) Hope's Irish Dance dress that I hadn't touched since before Christmas.
Kate's cat really liked Hope's dress.
I also finished up on the earrings,
slider necklace/pin,
& pin,
which I mounted on to a card, & dropped it off at Mindy's, to be donated to an auction for the Irish Dance School, this coming Sunday.

Thanks for the card and the pin Bee! They are beautiful!! It actually arrived a couple of days ago. We've been in the middle of school play season.

So being mentioned in a blog titled "Old Friends" makes me feel like I'm aged like a cheese or wine...but you do realize that I'm still 18 right? LOL

Thanks for coming to the show yesterday and the great donation as such short notice/request....you're such a sweetheart!
