Blogger Friends

Blogging has given all us a new kind of friend and a fun way to stay connected with our friends. I've received so much satisfaction and joy our of blogging and getting to know each of you through visiting your blogs and conversing with you through emails. Thank you for your friendship.



We don't often get to meet our blogging friends but when we do I'm sure you feel the kinship that I felt this week as I met Nedra from Cactus-Needles and Nanette from Freda's Hive. I am lucky to have Nanette live close by and to see her each month but this is the first time I've met Nedra in person and I really enjoyed the time we had and wished we had had more time. Thank you Nedra for wanting to meet me. I felt an instant connection and look forward to seeing you again. Soon I hope!

This is one of Nanette's more recent quilts.

Here's a picture of the ever popular button covers before they're covered. I think this could be another obsession for me too. I'm feeling the need to buy some of these buttons!!!

Here is a picture of some of Nanette's bags. I love them and they look so happy hanging there in her sewing room.


I love this close up of Nanette and Nedra. I want you to know that they are even more wonderful in person than their blogs are, so go visit them and check out their blogs.

Hi Kim-
I think that is so fun that you got to meet Nedra! I know you already know Nanette and I'm looking forward to meeting both you and Nanette on the 30th at Alpine quilt group.
It sounds like you had a great shop hop...too bad we didn't run into each other.

Sounds like a lot of fun! I've met both Nanette and Nedra and they're both wonderful people and incredibly talented quilters and artists!

How fun....love the bags you showed us and wish I could see her sewing room too. Glad you had a good time.

Nedra said...

Thanks Kim! It was so wonderful meeting you this last week, especially since we've blogged and e-mailed so often this last year.
I think we need to get together again SOON!

Pat said...

How lucky you are to have met both of them in person. I follow Nanette's blog....guess I'll need to see if Nedra has one and follow hers, too. :)

Barb said...

Me again, just have an award for you over at my blog...

How sweet that you were able to meet someone new from the quilty bloggy world!
Say...where are you getting those buttons to cover?? In bulk perhaps? They seem so expensive to buy the pacakges and I don't need a new 'tool' each time.

I loved reading about your adventures with Nanette and Nedra. I read their blogs and they are phenomenal women. So nice that you could get together and see each other's work. Fun!

I wish so bad that I still lived in Utah so that I could meet and shop hop with you, Nanette and Nedra.

It was a great day. Not enough time together though. I feel so grateful to have you and Nedra as my friends. I told you that when I didn't know you I was so intimidated by your skills. Well your skills are still intimidating but you aren't and I know I can count on you as my friend for anything. Thanks Kim.
