Blogging Friends.....Make me smile!

Everyday I am reminded of how lucky I am to have met some of the greatest women on the net.  Yesterday my post was about just three of my blogging friends. A couple more today.....

This little guy just makes me smile....

  It was sent to me by the super, super sweet Laurie.  I was following her blog and noticed that she was gathering some blocks for another gal who was going through a bad time. This is just Laurie's style, thinking of others.  I had a pet project of my own at that point and couldn't help out.  But later I discovered some quilting still needed to be done so I offered to do it.  Well....so that lead into doing a wonderful quilt for Laurie you can see the posting here and I found this little cutie in the box when it arrived!!  My blog posting that day is Smiles and this little guy definitely brings out smiles.  Laurie moved from Maine to Texas and many of us followed her in the journey.  She's been a little lax about the blogging lately we need to send her some blogging love to get her going again.  So hop on over and say hello here's the link:


Another sweetie.....is Terry and you all know her from her blog:
This gal is amazing!!  I just finished a quilt for her, it was a beautiful Irish Chain, done with WHITE!! I don't do white, and am in awe of the gals who do.  I've worked on a few of quilts for Terry and they are wonderful!!  Perfectly trimmed on the back, I'm thinking she's a perfectionist!!  If you don't know Terry pop on over to her blog and check her out.  Her hand work is amazing  and she does some of the cutest little projects.  Want to know how I know?  WELL....THIS came in my mail yesterday.....

How amazingly cool is that???  See!!!  I told you blogging friends are the best!!!  Here's a link to Terry's blog where she blogs about working on this project.  AND gosh darn it!!  While I was capturing that link I saw some really cute little chicken things that I need to go back and read.  I get behind but ALWAYS go back and read all of the post that I missed on the blogs listed on my side bar. 

Okay, now I need to show you pictures of the last quilt that I worked on for Terry....

I've posted more pictures of this amazing quilt on my other blog:
Insanely Cheap Quilting

Now didn't I tell you that blogging friends are the best???

thanks for checking on me,
hugs,
joanne

love to hear what you've got to say.......

I sent you an email yesterday about a quilt. I was wondering if you got it, I may need to resend it if not!
