    My Dear QB Friend

    My life would be less cheerful if I had not met Lynnie on QB. We make an effort to get together in person. Today, she met me at the dentist. We had a nice lunch, exchanged treats, lots of chit chat. 'Love you dear lady!!

    What a wonderful post! Most of us guessed what you found out for good, that she really is a nice Lady.

    There might come a day where my world will stop moving for a few hours when I can get together with you and Lynnie, and maybe your friend Michele. Right now I am trying to cram making quilts for my nieces, and nephews for Chanukah. We are talking about seven, and only three are completed. Two tops to be quilted, and two haven't been started. Some have the strips you gave me.. Thanks again..

    Makes me kinda wish I lived in NY--only kinda here--you all seem to enjoy such a sweet rapport. I have corresponded with Lynnie, and she seems a real sweetie.
    Make every day count for something!

    Dotty is a real sweetheart. I look forward to meeting with her when we get the chance. Dotty is a real sweetie.
    Barri, let us know whats good for you and the three of us will get together.
    If anyone else wants to try and meet up. let's do it.

    Love you too Dotty, my dear quilting friend.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    You two are lucky to have found a friend through QB. I tried that a few years back, but it was a 'no go.' Now I've found 5 other ladies (two have taught quilting!!) who enjoy my company. We have a brown bag lunch and share our progress on projects (and get help if we're stuck) about once a month. December is skipped for obvious reasons. It's so nice to have friends who can speak 'quilt.'

    How nice! I've had the pleasure of meeting two QB'ers in person so far and really enjoyed both visits quite a bit! Between those visits and my guild...I have never had a hobby where I got to meet so many great people. I think quilters in general are just awesome people.

    So happy for BFF news!! I, too, have only "visited" with Lynnie online and she is a lovely person, inside and out, and does such wonderful things for other people! Dottie, I have read lots of your posts and feel like I know you also!
    Sounds like y'all had a wonderful time together ! And so lucky to live close to meet and "talk" quilt!!!

    Joining in on the bandwagon to say how great it is that you have found each other via this wonderful board!! When you click with someone in both heart and mind, there is just nothing like it!! Hugs and smiles
