Have you ever met someone out of the blue and just connected and it feels like you've always known each other and have lots of things in common with?

Two months ago I met Mary at our Church group and it was instant friendship!  We found out that we are neighbors (she lives down the street from me); she comes from the Minneapolis area; she's a talented quilter, and also a beginner golfer like me. We also have similar likes and dislikes.

We are both part of the Sewing Group at Church.  She's such a great asset to our group.  You don't tell her twice, and she's done with a project or request right away!  She made about 10 lap quilts to be donated to Veterans.  They turned out beautifully and they were very much appreciated by the nursing home.

 Mary made this very cute throw pillow for me!  She knows I love my wine!
She made a beautiful wine quilt (which I love!), and she used some of the leftover fabric for my pillow.
I am blessed to have few but very good friends!

Have a wonderful day!!!


  1. Very sweet new friend! Have fun together!!!

  2. She sounds like a real sweetheart! So glad you found each other! xx Karen

  3. What a sweet friend you have.
    I love the pillow she made for you just with what you love... she's very thoughtful too.
    Happy Valentine's sweetie.

  4. True Friends are treasures.... especially ones that sew! LOL

  5. Speaking of friends, dear friend, I thought I would let you know that I have moved to Peoria, finally! Whew! What a job! I only ended up in Urgent Care once, though, and I thought I did real well.I knew this move was going to be a killer. I have a few more boxes left to unpack, and some pictures to hang. I need to clean off the patio where the boxes and trash were thrown, outside of that, I'm done. I have been following your blog, Oliva, even though I was kind of out of touch with everything else. I am still looking forward to meeting you and having lunch. Then I can finally present to you my little treasure I made for you. Can't wait. I'm on the border of Glendale, and I'm in between Grand and Peoria Ave, on 91st Ave. I now live in the Casa del Sol West mobile home park for seniors 55+.The Westward mall is 2 miles south of me. Lots of shopping around, but I don't care for the immediate area outside my complex. It's kind of dingey.How long will you be in Arizona? I hope we have time to spend getting to know each other. Congratulations on your new friend, Mary. and I love the pillow she made you! Friends, really true friends, are indeed treasures to be held in the highest esteem. and we as women seem to only have a handful, and that's if we are lucky. I'm not sure where everything is around here, but if you would like to pick a place for us to have lunch, I will try to find it. LOL I have google maps, thankfully.

  6. So wonderful to have a good friend so close by, and sweet of her to make you a pillow too!
