This post could be pages long,I will try to keep it to an acceptable length.  
Husband knew I had a very hard work week. Flowers made me forget all about it.

I have work friends who listen to my complaints.
We have expanded each other's gardens.
and enjoye a few glasses of wine together.

I have friends who I don't hear from for awhile and when I need them most I hear from them.
a little friend ESP?

I have friends who are always are up for thrifting, vacationing, and any time of need.

I have a new friend who got a long time friend and I into the camp wool hook in at the last minute.
where we met new friends. This rug is amazing this is a perfect example of the colors are more to this rug than the pattern.

This new friend handed me a rug and said this is for David and his continued recovery.
To this new friend I anoint you funny, sweet and generous who truly touched my heart. I am blessed to know you.
( I will show the rug when I have it finished)
My life is full because of my friendships old and new.
It's easy to make a friend. What's hard is to make a stranger.

Friendship makes the world go around. Old friends as well as new keep us grounded. I agree, to have a friend you need to be a friend. The colors in the fish rug are amazing, very pretty. I hope David continues to do well with his recovery and am looking forward to "his" rug! Your friend from Maine, Julie.
