I just had to dedicate today's block to my friend Amanda!
I met Amanda last summer at the quilt shop, Quilt Works, and we instantly connected. We had a lot of similar interests, and we both love a lot of the same fabrics. Her artistic eye and passion inspire me every single day! We texted nonstop for days, to a point where both our husbands just knew who we were texting every time we were on our phones, lol.
I have felt so incredibly lucky to have gotten to know her over the last few months. What I love about Amanda is that she is so easy to talk to. She lets me be myself. She lets me vent to her, she is a shoulder to cry on, and she always has the best responses to the things I bitch about. She makes me laugh so much!
I love that she has never made me feel bad for being who I am. She always lifts me up, and appreciates my personality and she appreciates me as an artist and human. Every time we get together, we just have fun.
Isn't that what friendships should be all about? They should be easy, fun, they shouldn't make you feel down or in doubt about yourself. That's definitely the kind of friendship we have.
It has been so fun doing this block challenge with her. She helps keep me motivated and accountable, and I just love exchanging pictures every day! It is something I definitely look forward to.
Here's to many more years of friendship, Amanda! I am so thankful that our paths crossed. You make me a better person, a better artist and a better friend! I appreciate you soo much.
