I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow
A few weeks ago I met Terry for lunch in Freeport, Maine. We try to get together every now and then for a few hours to visit and catch up on what's going on in our lives .... I look forward to these visits.
Before we headed to the restaurant where we were going to have lunch, Terry handed me a pretty paper bag with this amazing shawl that she knit. (my pictures do not do this shawl justice...it is stunning!)
I swooned when I saw the color and I will tell you why in a moment. The pattern that Terry knit was designed by our friend Susan from Utah and the wonderful little pin was made by another friend Romi...and oh. my....I LOVE this little bunny pin!
I started blogging around 6 years ago when my friend, Anne, originally of Spinning At Waldon Farm...introduced me to the world of blogging. It was a new and fascinating world....I loved peeking into the lives of people that I really didn't know, but respected. Gathering new and creative ideas from them.
Since then my dearest friends today are the ones who I have come to know thru blogland. As a dyer I truly do think of them in colors, which may sound silly, but it really is the way I think.
Anne above is soft and blue...loves pastels...
Terry....of course is always blue
Margene....soft shades of blue, vibrant pinks and subtle reds
Anne.....loves everything green as do I
Carole....loves those hot summery reds
Manise (blogless)...is pretty keen on blue purples
So when Terry gave me this incredible gift and was a bit worried that I might not like the color I had to chuckle. This color is exactly the color I have been surrounding myself with lately....in yarn, roving and even in the bag that I am carrying. Normally I am not really a pink person but toss that beautiful gold into the mix and I am SO there! Somehow we friends know the colors of our friendships and that is a special gift. :)
I feel so blessed to have made the life long friendships that I have over the years through blogging. As the years have progressed my time at the computer is not what it used to be, but I am still so incredibly thankful to have met and befriended those who I hold dear in my heart from blogland.
Thank you Terry.....I LOVE it!!
