good egg...

i have had a little something on my mind for a little while...
blogging buddies.
people i have met and talked with via the quilting/sewing blogging world.
people i never would have met otherwise.
people who have inspired me and shared their talent.
amazing people who have answered questions of mine and listened to my advice... (that could be bad too...)

first is Carolyn from Fake it while you Make it...
Carolyn is an amazing seamstress and makes the cutest clothes for herself and for her sweet little O.
and recently while chatting via email, we discovered that we are kindred career spirits.
now i can make comments on her blog that she will totally "get". 
and she swears... i like it.
i think sewing and swearing often go hand in hand! ;)
i found her blog a while ago and she is seriously the sweetest ever.
she gave me an award a while ago... i still need to pass it on...
she recently started quilting, with a little encouragement from yours truly.  
and she recently finished her second one with beautiful hope valley fabrics.  
my hat is off to you bonnie!  i love it and i am glad we are friends. 
your talent amazes me and you are beautiful on the inside and out!

she is amazing amazing amazing...
a while ago she posted a block made from the flowering snowball pattern that she designed.
i was smitten and we chatted a bit about it.
she, being the bees knees, sent me my very own copy of the pattern with hand written instructions.  
thank you again mary. you are so sweet and i am going to try one of these blocks out very very soon...

I also really love Trish of Notes of Sincerity. 
she is so thoughtful.  while chatting via email she asked me about the quilt i was planning for miss s.  she noticed that i had chosen an old line from april cornell and told me that she had a few charm packs that she would gladly swap if i needed more fabric.  i was soooo touched by her thoughfulness.  
so... instead of swapping, which i was very happy to do, she just sent it to me!  
such a nice sweet person!
so to all the blogging friends i have made.  
thank you friend.  
you are a good egg.
