A Friend Filled Saturday

As I mentioned on Friday, Saturday was my 6 year blog anniversary. I celebrated by hosting a gathering of fiber friends at my home and we had such a great time! We had a potluck lunch with some really yummy food – black bean soup and couscous salad, macaroni and cheese, spinach and mushroom pizzas, delicious meatballs, salad, spinach pie and more! We had Bloody Mary’s and wine and beer and (eventually for those that stayed long enough) Pomtinis. There was delicious apple tart and chocolate cake for dessert.

Better and more important than all the food and drink, though, were the friends. Close friends who have become a part of my life in a way I never anticipated when I started this blog. Friends who teach me things and inspire me. Friends who are always there when I need them, whether it’s for a good cry or a hearty laugh. Real friends who share my passion for all things fiber and who were excited to come and hang out with me for a day.

I love all the laughing going on in this photo.

I love that there were bags being purchased by credit card, right in my own living room.

I love that there were spinners and knitters wearing orange.

And I love that there was crocheting and spinning and knitting, all at the same time.

I couldn’t ask for a better way to spend a Saturday.

  6. There’s nothing like a gathering of a group of like-minded fiber friends. Our guild gets together at least once a month and it’s wonderful. Happy Blogiversary again, Carole!
