40th "Friendship" Anniversary

In my last post I mentioned some secret sewing that had taken place and I was referring to a cushion cover that was made for a friend on the occasion of our 40th friendship anniversary.   We met on the buses when travelling home from the city each day after work and we became very good friends.   Our children grew up together and even though 28 years ago she and her family moved to another State distance was not a barrier for us.     June spent a week with hubs and I which enabled us to catch up in person - even though we "skype" on a very regular basis it is not the same.  The picture below shows me holding the quilt that was made for me and June holding her cushion.


The two of us "wrapped" in the quilt.

A celebration needs  a special lunch which of course had to include a "naughty" dessert.  Not much dinner was eaten that night.


It was lovely being able to catch up and talk over old times as well as encourage each other with our sewing.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

How fun! What a great friendship to last 40 years. As much as people move these days, that's extraordinary.
