"Friendship is the source of the greatest pleasures, and without friends even the most agreeable pursuits can become tedious." ~ St. Thomas Aquinas

Every Tuesday afternoon for about the past four years I have hosted a craft play day in my home for two or three friends. For various reasons we have been unable to all get together for several weeks now.

I had everything set up in case someone did get to come today, but sadly, things did not work out for my friends to get here. I went ahead and worked on my crafts, but it was not the same. On other days I'm perfectly contented to merrily go about my artwork alone, but today I couldn't keep focused. I missed my craft buddies!

    I love your practice of doing a craft each week with your friends. Ever since I first learned of it, I have wished I could do something similar with friends of mine.

    One of my friends gets together annually with one of her other friends to make Christmas presents. They take turns deciding what the presents will be that year.

    I would be happy if I could just make it happen once a month even.
    Crafts are so much fun to work on - and like most activities, they are even more fun when shared with friends.

    You are fortunate to have this built into your life.

    I didn't mean for this to sound like a "poor me" blog. Just that I value my friendships and I miss my friends when I can't see them. They had very good reasons for not being able to craft with me yesterday, and I know they would have come if they could.

    Whenever it's meant to be, we'll get together again!

    That sounds like fun. Wish I lived near you. Your craft buddies are probably trying to get back on schedule from the holidays. I'm still off schedule myself. Hopefully, next week someone will show up.
    Happy crafting!- Hattie
