Invisible Friends: They've Got My Back

Well now, being a genuinely nice blogger, indeed, and minding both my p's and my q's (as in Quilt Police) I would just like to say...ahem:

I am deeply grateful for the good natured qualities of my very dear, very nice, and very invisible blogger friends.

First of all, to Shelina, who not only comments regularly on my blog, but always has something either nice, or thought provoking to say and is currently vowing NOT to turn me into the QP, as long as I stay true and nice to her. Well, of course, Shelina is one of our most thoughtful bloggers and a very dedicated one, as well. You are so great, Shelina, thanks ever so much !!! ;)

And Su Bee, who has been here for me through thick and thin. And as we all know, sometimes I lay it on pretty thick and sometimes my substance matter is pretty thin. Su Bee must have she has offered to bail me out. So, she not only has my back, but as previously mentioned in one of her past comments, she has a gun.

And, in my defense, rushing in from her cornfields, we have atet who not only admits to having an 'attitude' but says there has been NO mistake with the lack of measurement in these borders! Well, enough said about Atet, except perhaps that she knows how to handle high schoolers and she's been a substitute teacher!!!

And then, there is dear Holly, who is a wonderful quilter even though she is too nice to admit it, but who is still nice enough to commiserate with me on the trials of adding borders, and therefore.....strengthens the jury count on my side! Thanks, Holly!

And, way too sweet for words,we have Sweet P , herself, who said... "You mean there are rules for borders? There are rules for quilting?" Gosh, I like how that girl thinks!!!

And last but not least, there is my newest invisible friend, homemakerkate, who supports me in my eternal quest for happiness in contrast to the endless despair of perfection. Now, there are a couple of things you should know about Kate. She was Homemaker of the Year in 2002 and to quote her directly from her own blog...she can "drop a man twice (her) size and disable him."

Now, tell me, does anyone every threaten any of them with the Quilt Police?.......or, are they just so nice and so powerful....that no one dares touch them....and it's just border breakers like me who get their rotary blades confiscated, are wrapped up in their tape measures, told to back up against their design walls, and then are pinned down with extra large basting pins?

So, write me down, threaten me, break down my sewing room door. .....I've got Invisible Friends and they've all got my back!

Well then, need I say more? I think I am good to go!!! :)
