A Learning Experience
This camping adventure has been such a learning experience on so many levels. G and I have come to realize how little we need to bring peace and contentment in our lives. All I need is a needle and thread and all he needs is some sunshine and an instrument to play. And it seems...we have created a life where there are friends just around the corner...old friends...
...and new friends, LOL
I stepped on the streetcar this week and a woman said...I know you :) I said really?!...from where?... and she said from Quilt Roadies...I had an immediate sense of how blessed my life is and how wonderful it is to make these connections solely based on a needle and thread.
I am especially grateful to have reconnected with Marion who I meet a couple of years ago in Denver, Colorado and who is now a part of the quilting and cross stitch community in Oregon. She has been so gracious in introducing me to her friends who I feel an immediate connection too. And although I have been cross stitching a bit here and there for years it is now an exciting part of my life! I am toying with the idea of creating a Floss Tube channel so I can keep the stitching momentum going!! I'll let you know if it comes to pass.
As this camping trip is starting to wind down
I am already excited about the next one!!
Take care and embrace your blessings!
