Kristin and Sarah
Do your friends ever come in waves of first names? I've been putting together swap stuff and organizing email and the like, and I realized that I am fortunate enough to have a little explosion of Kristin and Sarah in my life.
This Sarah, most famously with an "h", leaves nice and helpful comments and makes the most awesome hats on her blog. Yesterday, I stalked this Sarah's local quilt shop (with her blessing) to get my hands on some of the fabric she shows here. She makes adorable softie's too.
Then there are the Kristins: Kristin who created the quilt block swap, Kristin my miniswap partner, plus another Kristin who is very talented with the felt and stitches, but who may be a little shy with her first name.
To top it all off, I have friends Kristin and Sarah from my non-bloggy life. (Photo above is from a b-day party hosted by said Kristin.) In the beginning, I messed it up a bunch. I always thought that any comments from Kristin or Sarah were from local Kristin and Sarah, and so I'd have conversations with them about stuff I'd made (which may have seemed out-of-the-blue, but they're very obliging), meanwhile, I was never responding to other, blog-type Kristin and Sarahs. Now doesn't that make life interesting?
A side note: Redwork swappers, if you haven't received a partner from me or any follow-up information, please shoot me an email. Everyone should be partnered up and ready to go!
