Some like these, in the pics, are new friends - and friends for only a short moment. Others are dear, dear, longstanding friends.
Friends for a moment, are friends at a show, on the dock, a security agent at a convention center site. At a show, on the hospitality team, the vendor chair or a whilte glove volunteer.
At the studio, the UPS, fedEx or DHL delivery team. At the studio, my helpers - those who come out of their own lives to be 'creative design director' or 'financial advisor' or...
So when we were asked to teach at Summer Quilt Festival in Long Beach, California, hosted by Quilts Inc. , we were proud as peacocks.
So we decided on teaching:
LITTLE QUILTS - LANDSCAPES OF THE HEART
I called the education chair at Quilts Inc. to confirm.
"We're not really hard sell," I said.
"We don't have a widget or a gadget," I said.
"We're more relationship driven."
There was a pause.
"That's okay," she said. "That's good too."
So on this belated blog day, I say thank you to all of you that have let me be the one "Making
Friends" - - at the shows, in the studio, and along the way.
Here's to friends!!!
Thanks for thinking of
