Fiber Fests and Friends.

I learned a big lesson about friendship the last couple of weeks. What looks like a friend may or may not really be a friend. And a friend that you never knew you had come set down beside you and spend some time spinning away with you.

I didn't purchase anything at the fest. I had a great time. The yarns and fibers at Toni's stand were just heavenly. I set among them squeezing and petting and spinning away. She had to most gorgeous spindles and fiber as well as so many skeins of yarn. Maybe next year I will be able to scoop up on the goodies too!!

I read your post on your list. I want you to know that you are loved and appreciated. The acts of others are their own. No one thinks otherwise. Bev

I would second what Bev said so well. Your sincerity and generosity are obvious, nothing will change that. Carol

Jeanie,
That person does not deserve any space in your brain, girl! Say a lil' prayer for her and let it go to the Lord. We can't change her -- and she has to have insight into her behavior before even she can change it. You stand tall, Jeanie! Many thanks over and again for all you do!

You've got another "me too" here too. I've been burnt online before and I know that the pain of losing someone that you thought was a friend eats you up inside whether that friend was online or IRL. I for one am extremely honoured to "know" you. The patterns that you share with us all are wonderful, and I never cease to praise your designs when I'm at Rams {www.ramwools.com} showing off yet another one of my socks by your pattern. You are an extremely generous lady... more generous than I could ever be, since I'd be selling my designs as fast as I could get them written!

I am thrilled that you had a great time at the Fest otherwise... being out in the middle of nowheresville, I will have to either travel thousands of miles & many hours to share in one, or live vicarously through yours, and others adventures at them!

We love you, lady. Nothing will change that :)

Hey, Jeannie...it was very nice meeting you on Saturday at MFF (in..where else...Toni's booth). Maybe next year, I'll get a chance to chat a bit longer with you.

As for the other person, she has the problem, not you. I also know that she's volunteered to run some events on other lists I'm on. I will be sure NOT to participate in those. LOL!!!
