Twenty five years ago my best friend Beverly and I followed a dream, opened a tiny quilt store and called it Strawberry Patches. Together we worked the store by day and sewed up special orders at night. You could say we did it for the love of our craft because pay checks were pretty much non existent. When family matters called Beverly back to her full time job of mother to three growing boys I was left to go it alone.
During those early years some of the special orders Beverly sewed were custom dresses. Nobody could make little dresses like Beverly. Her attention to detail put them in the heirloom category and Beverly's love of sewing shown through those little dresses.
Sadly our busy lives pulled us in opposite directions and we lost contact with one another. It wasn't until I started my blog eighteen months ago that we reconnected. Without a doubt the number one thing I love about blogging is that it brings people together. Blogging brought Beverly back into my life.
So you can see why I am so excited that Beverly has started her own blog. Now, not only can she peak into my life but I can again feel apart of hers.
I know many of you remember Beverly and I hope you will pop over to My Sew Sweet Studio and see what she has been up to. Please tell her her friend Suzanne sent you!
Encourage one another,
