friendship rocks

A while ago, bee-friend Jeanne's daughter came to visit at one of our bees. While she was here, she showed us some of the crafts that she has been doing. Among the crafts were some rocks she had decorated to make cute little garden ornaments. Later, I bemoaned the fact that here in DE one cannot go outside and pick up rocks easily as our soil here near the beach is quilte sandy and I wanted to make some of those decorations for my garden.  When I lived in NE PA I thought all my gardens were rock gardens as I couldn't dig without finding rocks. I told my dear friend who lives in central PA that I was discouraged and certainly wouldn't go and BUY rocks.  This week, I received a box of Christmas presents from her and she sent me rocks from her yard! She doesn't quilt but knows me well so she also included Mimi Deitrich's A Quiter's Diary book. I always open her presents while talking to her on the phone so we had some wonderful laughs this week. She said she and her husband have been giggling for weeks just waiting for me to open my presents. Yes, our friendship rocks!

Good Morning Sweetie...
What a beautiful gift for Christmas. A box of rocks for crafting. A gift from the heart, and of course a box for quilting. What a sweetie.

I can't wait to see what the craft is that she was doing with the rocks. I have tons of rocks here in the desert, so I hope you share soon.

Have a beautiful holiday sweetie. May God richly bless your family and home this beautiful CHRISTmas season.

Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

That's a good friend that will give you a rock or two! I have a friend that would do that for me, and has.
