hi Deborah, we haven't talked in a while, but coming by your blog today after a particularly lively meeting here in lexington (KY) i wanted to reconnect with you... i would love to participate in your arts and crafts blog and would also love any snood patterns you could send my way! i wish i had been emailing you all this time... consistency is hard for me but i would really like to get to know each other. i will be in pgh the 1st of october for a few days and plan to visit meeting there. maybe we could have coffee together! yours, genevieve
Thank you Deborah for your friendship. I have moved to a small town (450) in Montana and although I live very close to an Amish community, my plain dress is an oddity here, yet you are so right as I feel very blessed.
Greetings! It is pleasant to have a new friend on here. I see that you are in Pittsburgh? I'm in York, PA - just a wee bit down the road from you. ; ) I am originally from Baltimore though I have lived in PA most of my adult life and have been in York for the last 21 years. Looking forward to enjoying more time and thoughts and readings on here and to having and making Friends into friends! Thank you for your thought to include me in your circle! I LOVE your ideas of crafts among Friends. At the moment I only craft in words and only for my paying work and the work of my heart, so I shall take the place of the admiring audience - a needed role! : ) - Meg
It's nice to be connected! I became a convinced Friend when I was 20, was elected Clerk of the Clarion Student Friends Workship Group at Clarion until I finished my MA in '75. I've sporadically attended Pgh Friends Meeting over the last 42 yrs, but not lately--although I feel that I'm being led to being less isolated from Friends now. Did I manage to leave a comment on your "Bless My Bonnet" blog?--Barra
Thank you for befriending me here. I'm feeling a bit isolated as a person home most the time, though an attender at a Quaker meeting and my husband's non-denominational church at times, so your message was warmly received. Have a blessed day in the Light.
Hi Deborah - I feel I must know you since I am also from Pittsburgh and have attended PFM for years... do you attend meeting? If so we must know each other. I had attended off and on since 2001 and have many good F/friends there. Then I moved here to Richmond, KY where there is no meeting, but I attend when I can at Lexington Friends Meeting. Look forward to talking with you! yours, jen
This is in answer to your comment to me earlier. Thank you for reaching out to me! Where in Pittsburgh are you? Do you attend Friends Meeting on Ellesworth St.? I tried to leave a comment on your "Bless My Bonnet" blog but am not sure I succeeded. --Barra, firstname.lastname@example.org
