Make new friends … but keep the old …

I’m sure that you have heard this at some point in your life. I think I first heard it years ago, in Brownies or Girl Scouts. This little song has been playing in my mind since Tuesday night.


On Tuesday night, we held the first meeting of our new needlecraft club. The club is open to anyone who wants to join us – working on any type of needlecraft – knitting, crocheting, embroidery, tatting, etc,  – and who simply wants to hang out with others who enjoy needlecrafting.

Not surprisingly, once every one was introduced, the conversation was steady and far-reaching. There was lots of laughter – and believe it or not, there was needlecrafting being done. Two hours simply flew by.

The group decided to meet every week, with people attending when they are able. I suspect there will be more things that grow out of this group meeting. For example, there was already mention of a road trip. The possibilities are endless.

And the best part – new friendships began and older ones were rekindled.

Thanks for reading!!
