Best Friend's Day!

Hi Everyone! I declare today Best Friend's Day. April 16th!

So, Anne Bryson of Bend, Oregon it's your day! Happy Birthday!!!

I found this photo of Anne Bryson with Blackbird Designs at Fall Quilt Market last year. She's the one in the middle (:

I know she's my best friend because she LOVES Blackbird Designs and yet she still comes back to my booth to be with me!

Here she is in the Bunny Hill Booth...third from the right. Notice the smile? It's one of the things I love about her!

So, since today is her birthday I found a clown for her birthday...
Nothing but the best for her!

OK, I admit it. This was from my grand-daughter's birthday party. A slightly used clown but you get the idea right?

I've been thinking a lot lately about our friendship and what it really means to me. She's been my friend through all my failures and success. She's the one who is always there to laugh or cry with me, and even more, she's the one who lifts me up when I need it.

    In honor of Best Friend's Day I found these little quotes:

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. ~Oprah Winfrey

An ordinary friend would try to mend your heart once it's been wounded and poured out. A true friend would try to refill it as well."... author unknown

A friend can tell you things you don't want to tell yourself. ~Frances Ward Weller

Everyone hears some of the words you say.

Friends hear all of the words you say.

Best friends hear the words you don't say. unknown

Do you have a friendship quote to share today? What about your best friend? Maybe a funny story?

Today I went shopping for her birthday. If you go here you will see what I got her. Anne is getting a magazine subscription to Australian Homespun Magazine! If any of you have thought about a subscription, this is the best place to find one. They carry all the hard to find magazines.

It's Best Friend's Day! Happy Birthday Anne!
