Bloggin Buddies are the Best

If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times. You meet the greatest people in blogland.

Just today I went out to me mailbox and found a wonderful surprise package from Robin.  We met over a conversation on fabric dyeing. I set her some samples and information I have found useful and she sent me this wonderful package from Hershey Park.  You remember me mentioning that I actually new someone who made kisses???        :-)  :-)

 
Robin had no idea just how much it met for me to find this today. My mom passed away on Thursday and with all the stress... Well lets just say, this package couldn't have come at a better time.
 
If there is one thing I gained from my mom, it's the love of candy. Ummm... and the hips, that deserve a "WIDE LOAD" sign of their very own, and some things I probably shouldn't share! LOL!!  So here's to you mom,  I am eating it for you!!  And thank you so, so very much Robin.
You remind me every day, why bloggin' friends are so special!
 
For my next quilt retreat, I get to show off all my goodies in my new Hershey Park tote bag!!  Eat your hearts out, quiltin sisters!!  Oh that sounded just terrible didn't it.  :-)
