Helen and Christine and Molly too.

It is wonderful to catch up with friends and have a good long chat.
Yesterday I visited Helen in hospital.  She was looking really well and I know she is back home today so that is great news.  No more horrid broth for her. (This is all she was allowed to eat for five days)
We settled in for a good long chat and talked about our sewing and our love of trips to the beach and our shared love of animals.  It is so wonderful to have Helen as a friend, she is truly a good person and so kind and caring of others. While we were chatting another patient at the hospital popped in to wish Helen well and thank her for all she had done for fellow patients.
I put together a little pressie tin for her, so she can stitch while waiting for doctor's appointments.

And then today Christine invited me over for afternoon tea.  

As always there was something delicious to nibble and dear little Molly was nearby, under the table in fact, just incase there was any for her.  
I must admit when Christine answered the phone I did offer her some of my scone and she, oh so delicately, took it from my fingers and swallowed it whole.  I just love little Molly...she is so sweet.

I did take my sewing but we had so much fun chatting I didn't even open my Bambi sewing box.  I love spending time with Christine, she is a true kindred spirit.

I made both these friends through blogging...no wonder I think blogworld is the best.


My friend from Sweden, Monica, adores strawberries so these cushions made me think of her as soon as I saw them.  You can find the pattern and tutorial HERE at wonderful The Purl Bee.  Thank you so much to Purl.


Hope you have had time to catch up with friends
Love
