Friendships

March 27, 2019

My time in Tucson is quickly coming to an end.  The weather was cooler this year, but I still loved it.  In fact, I prefer 60’s and 70’s.  It’s now in the 80’s, and let me tell you, an RV gets mighty hot in full sunshine and 80 degree temperatures.

I belong to two quilt groups here, and have made such good friends.  How do quilters manage to “click” so well with each other?  We certainly have.

I’m not one to do a lot of social sewing at home, but that is the only type of sewing and quilting I do while I’m on vacation in Tucson.  I don’t have room in my RV to sew, and while I can sew outside on my patio, it’s a lot of work to set-up and take down, and then there is the breeze.  We are in a great location, and enjoy the breeze when we sit outside reading on our patio, but not so enjoyable when pieces of fabric take flight. So off to the craft room I go.

It’s been pure joy to sew and chat this year.  After coming to the same resort for 8 years now, we’ve all gotten to know each other pretty well, and get along great.  We’ve gone on fabric shopping trips together, and quilt shows together, and some of us have gone out to eat with our spouses together.  We’ve formed a great little community here.  I’m really going to miss my Tucson sewing sisters.

One of them – Linda – gave me a parting gift, and it pretty much well sums up how we all feel:

Joy

Hugs…
