    When I lived back east I had wonderful quilting buddies just like that. We sewed together all the time. Now that I live in Denver I have no one to sew with. I miss my friends dearly. You are blessed!

    Oh well, that was a total miracle to have a buddy next door! I thank god for her still.

    I have thought about joining a guild, but, the weather or my health doesn't always allow me to go anyways.
    Most guilds would be happy to have you come and join them in fellowship whenever you were able. Don't let a lack of perfect attendance keep you from looking for one to join.

    RedGarnet222 and davis2se, I'm so sorry for your loss. It's really hard losing a friend....true ones are so few and far between. May God Bless

    I am blessed too for having a great circle of quilting buddies, we take turns going to each other's houses and then on Thursdays we meet at a church. Awesome to have this in my life.

    I am so touched by the sweet responces about my post, girls. Thank you so much! I really should try and get out there once in a while and mingle. I have a class I signed up for the first week of december at the Truckee Meadows daytime group guild leader's home. I really like her. So fun. But, she lives way on up the mountain on the other side of town.

    I am so very grateful for this board and the members. I get to talk quilting anytime I wish day or night. LOL...

    My quilting buddy kitty (that was her name) was a one of a kind and a true gift while she was here. I think of her daily.

    We have a Wednesday group in a neighboring town where we bring a dish and our sewing projects and spend the day.

    Fortunately, I do have good friends, but they are all retired and I still work. I miss out on a lot. A few more years to go till retirement. I can't wait!!!!
