I'm the only one in my family that currently sews.  My mom used to sew back when I was little, but hasn't touched her sewing machine since we moved out of town when I was 8.  So when I met my friend, B, I was thrilled to learn that she sewed.  Finally I had someone to chat sewing with!

Our sons are only two months apart and like playing together so we've talked about getting together to sew while the kiddos play.  Well, you know how that goes.  If you only talk about it and never actually make plans it just doesn't happen.

So this morning I called B to chat and we made plans to get together in the morning!

Maybe it is just me, but I love the idea of doing something you love while chatting with a friend!  What could be more fun?!

I think this is why I love this sewing/craft blogging community.  I feel like I have all of these friends who tell me what they have been up to and in turn my blog is my way of telling you.  It's like one giant on going conversation!

I'm so excited about our sewing palydate tomorrow!  My son and I are going to her house so I am only taking Katie's quilt so I am forced to work on it and only it!  I wont have a choice!  So hopefully I can at least finish the quilting...

Yes, sharing makes the fun even more enjoyable!

I like your strategy of taking only one thing so you have to work on it!

Have fun!
