Blogging Friends Are The Best!!!

Amy and I have been blogging friends for at least 5 years.  I am proud to know her and admire all her talents one of which is card stamping.  I always hoped that Amy might want to send me one of her creations and was delighted when she asked me for my address.  This card is gorgeous.

I collect bookmarks, magnets, etc. with a "dream" message so, this fact unbeknownst to Amy, she had a "dream" message for me.  Well, thoughtful as Amy is, also included in the package was a pair of hand-knit knee warmers for my arthritic knees. 

The package arrived on a day that had proved to be quite challenging so Amy's thoughtfulness really perked up my day.

Check out Amy's blog.  She is a wonderful, mom, wife, daughter, friend and much more.  Her creations are fantastic and she is currently knitting for a charity in each of the 50 United States and she has a map on her blog listing the states that have benefited from her thoughtfulness.  Amy is originally from the U.S. and now lives in Israel.

Sadly, about two months before we met online, Amy was in my town and shopped at my LYS.  How I wish I had had the opportunity to meet her in person.

Hugs to you, Amy.  I'm proud to be your friend.

Happy Knitting!


  1. Oh my, how wonderful! Such perfect timing for you too.


  2. I love when neat things like this happen....the dream theme unbeknownst to Amy.

    You're so right.... Blogging friends are the best! I love the knee warmers, too.

  3. Sorry, not even Amy's blog could detract me form that heel. What the heck happened?

  4. Oh my goodness! Thank you so much Joansie - you are too sweet! I am so lucky that we are friends (just wish we'd gotten it in gear just a little earlier, lol). I would love to come back to Vermont so I am going to keep hoping we WILL get together in person one of these days.
