friendship + fabric

Sometimes I tell retro daddy I am so blessed to have such lovely friends around me. Whether they’re from church playgroup, old friends, new friends, ballet mum friends, blogging friends, crafty friends – I’ve been truly blessed with some wonderful people in my life……..and some of you I’ve never met but consider you my friends. Yesterday, one of my sweetest friends, Francine, came over to cut fabric………..for 3 hours!

Francine was my old neighbour and we’re kindred spirits. We love to bake, sew, cook and be mummies. The day we moved out of our old house she came over with hot soup she’d made and buttered toast all wrapped up. She’s just that kind of person. We go to each others parties and have shared the ups and downs of having our babies.

So yesterday she came over and cut and folded and cut and folded some more and filled a box with fat quarters for Mathilda’s. What a lovely thing that was to do for me! I paid her in fabric and everyone was happy.
