A Pound of Friendship

The wonderful thing about being part of a community like Talk To Me Tuesday are the wonderfully talented, generous and fun people I’ve become friends with.

This is Aalia. When I divvied up swap partners for the 1 Pound Swap, her name came out of the hat for me. I’ve known Aalia since the original Project of Doom back in 2011.

She’s a joy of a person, a fabulously talented designer, a stellar hand embroiderer, a lover of things Harry Potter and I was thrilled to get to send her a pound of crafty love!

Random Monday Thoughts

Thank you to every single person that has helped spread the word about the pattern theft that has taken place against Fandom In Stitches and many of my designer friends.

I have taken as many measures as I can to rectify the situation and can now only wait and see what happens. Your support of myself and the online crafty community is much appreciated!

Binding a super secret project!
On a more positive note, I mailed off a super secret project this over the weekend. I wonder what it could be?!

And now, a quote from my favorite headmaster:

We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided. Lord Voldemort’s gift for spreading discord and enmity is very great. We can fight it only by showing an equally strong bond of friendship and trust. Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.
~Albus Dumbledore

And, as a happy aside, have you seen Aalia’s wonderful Doctor Who-inspired Prayer Leaf tutorial?

Until tomorrow, my dear friends!
