Friendship Giveaway


Last night, we arrived home exhausted from our annual spring road trip to Shipshewana, Indiana.  As always, I managed to bring back a few goodies, like this lovely charm pack, Friendship, by Howard Marcus, and thought it would make for a nice giveaway. 

So, for a chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment and tell me what friendship means to you, before midnight May 12.  Any 'no-reply' entries will be excluded from the draw.  A winner will be chosen by random May 13 and announced here.

Until next time.....good luck and happy quilting!

Karen

And, the winner is.....

Fun topic! Friendship is being able to just be yourself among another...it is simple, it isn't work...my better friendships are easy and not taken for granted.

Friends are people who accept one another...quirks and all!

Pokey said...

I think a true friend is one that loves you all the time, not just the good times. I always say thank you for loving me warts and all! And, I try to be that kind of friend too ~
:-}pokey

A friend is someone who laughs in the good times and cries along with you in the bad.

Friendship is very important to me. It means that people love me for me and allow me to love them back.

A great friend you can pick up with even after a long time apart.

Janet said...

Someone you can talk to about anything and they are happy to listen and will tell you the truth about what you should do, or if you are being "out to lunch".

2 weeks ago, I had a reunion with the people with whom I lived in our student house (like a dorm, but much smaller). I hadn't seen them for over 6 years and, eventhough we had been best friends back then, I even lost contact with some of them.
I guessed it would be strange to see those people again, after so long. But I was wrong. It felt like not a day had passed since we had last seen eachother. Our friendship was just as warm and special as 6 years ago. I guess real friendship doesn't fade!

katrien said...

Friendship is someone who can listen to you make fun and accept you like you are.

Martina said...

I think friendship is something very precious and it is like a plant, we also have to handle it with care but it is all worth it, because it grows to a wonderful flower of love!

Pia said...

Friendship is so hard define and so important to have. To trust and be trusted.

Catswhiskers said...

welcome back home!
I believe friendship is smiling when you see a friend's face!
It is also to share a tear. No wanting.
Giving and sharing naturally.

Paula said...

friendship - friends are a bit like family only you choose them.

Fiesta said...

Karen thank you for the chance to win. Friendship to me means having someone who accepts me as I am. Flaws and all.

Melanie said...

A friend knows the 'crappy' stuff about you and loves you anyway.....
Thanks for sharing... I love fabric names...Sometimes-- it draws me to the pieces more than the colors....

Roxanne said...

A true friend senses your joys and your sorrows and sends up appropriate prayers on your behalf.

Deb said...

Someone who you can share both the good and bad times with and just be yourself.

Karen said...

Friends are people that make you feel like you've gotten a big hug.

Sewing Sue said...

Friends are silver but girlfriends are golden! Life without girlfriends is life without sunshine.

garden2day said...

True friendship is a rare jewel of life. It is being there for the other through thick and thin. Friendship means the sharing of dreams and ideas without risk of ridicule. It means when things are bleak, there is someone at all hours. It means giving of oneself without the other asking. True friendship should be nurtured and cared for at all costs. We should always appreciate our friends so that our friendships may continue to grow.

Mary said...

Friendship is a special relationship between two people. They except each other for who they are and are there for each other in good as well as in heartbreaking. I visited with 2 such friends last weekend and each gave me strength in different ways. Friends are wonderful.

Doreen B said...

thanks for the chance to win this beautiful fabric. Friendship is a relationship that is comfortable. You can both be yourself and not be judged for having different opinions.

Mary K said...

A true friend is someone who not only helps you when you need it, but will let you help them in return.

Terry said...

Friendship means accepting someone just as they are, faults and all. And having fun together. A friend can make you laugh even when you don't want to. Thanks for the chance to win that lovely charm pack! :0)

Diane H said...

Friends are always there when you need them and vise versa.

Sunnybec said...

Friends mean a lot to me, you can choose your friends ..... family is a different matter!!

Mimi said...

I would have to say that friendship is that special bond with someone that only requires eye contact and no words need be exchanged to know 'everything' whether good or bad.

Loralynn said...

Friendship means having someone you can giggle with, cry with and share time with without having to worry if you are wearing your makeup or not!!!

Thanks for the opportunity to win such gorgeous fabrics!
Friends are always there for each other, you can share the good and the bad with them and it doesn't matter how long between visits, even years, and things between you are still the same as always. Life without friendship wouldn't be half as fulfilling.

Heather said...

A friend is one who knows the song in your heart and sings it back to you when you have forgotten the words. :o) Thanks for the chance to win!

Marcia W. said...

Friendship for me is giving to another person I care about "just because". It's sitting and exchanging looks where actually communicate what we are thinking.

sunny said...

A true friend is someone you can instantly reconnect with, even if you haven't seen them for a long time. And they're always there for you. I think I'm going to Shipshewanna on my next solo vacation.

Jeanne said...

A good friend is there when you are at your worst and loves you anyway.
Love your stitcheries in the previous post!

Zlaty said...

Quilting Chemist (Danette) said...

A friend is someone who accepts you the way you are. They are there in good times and bad ...and you just enjoy being with them. Even though many states apart my friend can always make my day brighter.

Sherill said...

My friends support me and accept me good and bad. They bring a special joy to my life. I would be very lonely without them.

Nancy Sue said...

Friendship is being able to just pick up where you left off, even if haven't spoken to them for months at a time :)

friendship is acceptance without always understanding.
