love to coordinate...

i often combine my two favorite addictions
...stampin'up and beautiful fabric
verna is my current fabric of choice
kate spain will always have a special place my heart
her first spring collection
in budding pink and green, apricot, dewdrop and earth
paisley, flowers and stripes
paired with...
stampin'up polk-a-dot ribbon and ink in
melon mambo and soft suede
beside kiwi kiss
and baja breeze
a perfect coordination

stampin' for a friend...

...two beautiful girls
so much in common...
one extra chromosome
and princesses
and hospitals
and miracles...

one stamps a greeting send to her friend
from ohio to utah
with a heartfelt message...
those two little words
kristen so brave indeed
miracles happen
simply just read

make new friends...

...but keep the old, some are silver
and some are gold
a circle is round, it has no end...

...and that's how long
I want to be your friend
blogging companions
joined by one extra chromosome
moms who've never met
yet share a bond most will never understand
Thank you dear friend

sew a needle pulling thread...

...a glimpse into the past
at textiles and fashion
...fifty years in the making
were these tiny hands already destined
this day
to create...
to stitch design
