    I am very blessed with quilt friends. When I retired from teaching I knew I wouldn't see my school friends much, and it made me a little sad. So I prayed and asked God for friends. A woman I had known for a long time asked if I would like to learn to quilt. She sent me to the LQS. Everyone there was so nice and I made friends. Then I met a woman I had worked with many years ago in the shop. We resumed our friendship. I started going to classes there and met even more wonderful women. Out of all that I now belong to two guilds, one large, one small; I quilt at the LQS one day a week and my church one day a week; have traveled to Paducah and other places with friends. I am SO BLESSED AND THANKFUL. I am also thankful for this board. I enjoy your pictures and threads. Lisa
    Peace is one of His greatest gifts.

    you're so lucky to have a group of buddies like that - my best friend/crafting co-hort in crime passed away nearly 4 years ago and I miss her every day. I'm sure she's looking over my shoulder now with every stitch I make.

    My quilt buddy clocks in around 9 on a Saturday and often only leaves around 4 or 5. We yap and sew and cut and design and ooh and ah over each other's work while the DDs provide tea and lunch. The DDs often also hang around the sewing room on some project or to share opinions and advice. Fun, fun, fun. And we actually get a lot of quilting and piecing done.

    A quilting buddy is great for pushing you to get your UFO's done! I live in an apartment and kept hearing a rumbling noise from the apartment above me - it would go on for hours at a time. Finally got up my courage one day and knocked on the door to ask what the noise was. I knew that if I knew what it was, it wouldn't bother me so much. Turns out that my male upstairs neighbor was making quilts on his Janome on a glass table directly over my bed. Needless to say, the noise doesn't bother me any more and we now quilt together either at his place, my place, or in the "party room" of the building where we can use the large banquet tables and invite his other quilting buddies to join us.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    How lucky you are, Bellyboo! Loved reading the responses. After moving to Colorado, it was hard to make new friends other than at work. After retirement, I joined the local guild and I am blessed with great quilt friends galore!
