As some of you know, last year I caught up with my best friend from high school, Nancy, through facebook. We had lost contact for 27 years and, when we met up last year in Chicago, it was almost as if we had grown into the same people; not quite exactly alike but very similar. We got together again briefly this past May at my house in NC when Nancy and Bill (her husband, who, by the way was her high school sweetheart, so it was a reunion for us as well) were driving through to have a family gathering at the NC shore.
We had decided that these fleeting get-togethers weren't enough so off I went to visit her in Indiana (she moved out of California for pretty much the same reasons we did). We had a wonderful week; we laughed, cried, toured around her beautiful town (Bloomington) and had a fantastic time. I now know exactly why she was my best friend...I have rediscovered her and love her even more than before! Anyway, she is an amazing quilter and did own her own quilting shop for 5 years. I love quilts but have tried my hand at the craft and just couldn't make it happen (I'll stick to knitting and crochet). I have taken many pictures of her quilts to share:
|Above is the house that Nancy had her quilt store in. It's available! Anyone interested? I think a yarn store would be perfect!|
