Friends

Finding new friends is hard when one works at home. But through the internet it is really possible to find new and true friends. Being near is not really necessary, though if you can actually see and hear your friend, it is wonderful. I have been blessed to find genuine friends on the internet, I know they are real to me as I am real to them. I so wish to meet them all in person, but being a non-traveler, it is almost impossible.
About a month ago, I chanced upon meeting a neighbor when she saw my blog and inquired about the threads I'm selling. We didnt know then we were just a few blocks away from each other. I am more than glad that we share the same interest in crochet, we are both mothers, and we're of the same age. What a happy coincidence!
So here, I dedicate this post to Jeng. Since she's working fulltime in a bank, she hasnt tried blogging yet.
Here are the lovely accessories she has made:


A purse from Daphne Mah's pattern She added a crocheted beads handle. This was made from Cannon thread, size 8, in multicolor.




A cigarette holder, with a nice flower accent.










Flower accessories from this site.






Friends smile at you.
They like your face.
They want to be with you
Any old place.

Friends have fun with you.
Friends share
They’re glad when you’re happy---
When you’re sad, they care.

If you’re a friend
Then you care, too.
That’s why your friends
Are glad you’re you!!!
