Today, we sat at the sewing machine... she patiently taught me to set it up and guide the material through, turn corners, etc. (something I imagine is easy-peasy for all you crafters out there)... had we lived down the road from each other, I'd have picked her brains along time ago, but as it is... my sewing machine (a gift from my mother-in-law) sat in the closet... waiting for my mum's arrival... waiting for her to pass down her skill to me... yes, I could have taken a class, but this is so much more special... and maybe, one day I'll pass it down to my daughters...
My Friday Flower is a surprise bunch brought by the hubby and I'd like to dedicate it to two wonderful people in my life. The first gal is the lovely Melissa who I share Friday Flower with... her blog is beautiful... I mean really beautiful... I savour both the pictures and the words... but more than that, she is a truly lovely person. Her comments brighten my day and her e-mails fill me with cheer. Melissa is like the pen-friend I always wished I had growing up. Thank you for brightening my day!
The second gal (and by no means least) is my daily saviour, Tina. She's my English friend here in the States... she supplies tea and good company... but, most of all, she keeps me sane... without her I don't know what I would do. Really there aren't enough words for how much this tea buddy means to me. So, thank you, Tina, for being you. For being everything I could ask for in a friend! Now, get writing that blog, so that everyone else can get to experience your loveliness!
If you made it to the end of this post today, you'll have probably noticed that I'm feeling pretty sentimental... I guess, that's what having your mum around every day does to you...
Wishing you all a fantastic weekend! Catch you next week.
