Beautiful threads from a Beautiful Friend

The lovely Cricket is my floss fairy.
Every now and again she sends me a parcel of lovely lovely threads.

Beautiful, useful threads in jewel colours.

It's hard for people who don't have bloggy friends to understand,
but we really do make friends on the internet.

Real friendships and real relationships do develop.

I know for a fact if I was in the part of the world where Cricket is,
I would have a coffee and a sweet cake with her
and we would talk the afternoon away.

Blogging has changed my life in lots of different ways,
I've learned to take better photos and to write better.

I've learned about how people live in different countries
and learned lots of different skills.

I have lovely friends in lots of parts of the world,
who send me lovely threads just because they can!!


  1. Lucky you! But don't underestimate your generous spirit either, your posting creates a sense of friendship because you are not afraid to share. I suspect you could make friends in a they say.,.....vacuum as in negative space not the cleaner.....just in case my humor gets a little obscure as if often fact so obscure get my drift.:-)

  2. *sigh* very lovely. Blogging has been a life-saver of sorts here with friendships developing almost more organically than those in 3D. Those threads are exciting! xxx Fi

  3. Visiting your Blog and many others is like popping in and visiting a friend. My family and friends can't understand the relationship that bloggers develop with each other. they often ask how it can be a friendship if we have never met and may never meet. It is hard to explain, it just is. I am drooling over those gorgeous threads, just beautiful.

  4. I too have met my new sincere friends blogging, aren't we lucky! Beautiful threads! :)

  5. What a wonderful gift of friendship and thread!

  6. a beautiful gift, beautifully photographed. i still cant get over how all the bloggers i've met in real life are just as they come across online, i guess connecting is just connecting no matter the means x

  7. No matter if some one searches for his necessary thing, thus he/she wishes
    to be available that in detail, thus that thing is
    maintained over here.

  8. For me blogging was the one thing that kept me sane through all of those ghastly shakes and the whole reason I started my blog. Little did I know when I began, that I would benefit in so many other ways. I have learned to take photographs, improve my writing skills and improved my sewing skills along the way as well as meeting some wonderful people.

  9. I comment each time I appreciate a article on a blog or if I have something to valuable to
    contribute to the discussion. Usually it's a result of the sincerness communicated in the article I read. And on this post "Beautiful threads from a Beautiful Friend". I was actually excited enough to post a leave a responsea response ;-) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind.
    Is it simply me or does it seem like a few of these responses come across
    like left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at other
    sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post.
    Could you list all of all your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or
    linkedin profile?

  10. How wonderful. And so true. Wasn't it you who sent me some of your own vintage sheet stash so that I could participate in my first ever quilting bee? The friendships are the best part of blogging, I think. :)


Thanks so much for dropping by. I love to hear from you and I want you to know that I really appreciate each comment!!
