Is this an imaginary friend?

My kids call my blogland and flickrland friends "imaginary" friends because I don't really know them.  Well maybe they're right and maybe they're wrong but here's my friend Krista Poppyprint, in the retreat she organised holding a bee block I made for my friend Krista lolablueocean who went to the retreat and took it with her (not sure why) and they sent me this photo.  And it warmed the cockles of my heart.  Makes the world seem a little bit smaller.

  2. Krista looks very real to me, and I still love that block, I can understand why Krista lolablueocean would take it everywhere with her!

  3. Here I am, in the flesh, and I can assure you that there's enough of that to prove I am indeed, real!
    K2 (as my husband was forced to refer to lolablueocean with both of us in the house) brought all of her circle bee blocks to share for show and tell. I just had to fondle this prize winning beauty by one of my bestest blog buddies and confidantes, Lynne!!

  5. imaginary friends! LOL! My real life friends have a hard time understanding my attachment to my "virtual" friends in the land of Flickr. It's ok though! I need someone to understand my crazy fabric addiction! :)

  14. I actually sort of like having an undercover life...makes me feel mysterious....All kidding aside I'm quite surprised by the connection I feel to so many of you wonderful quilters in blogland.

  17. Wait - we aren't "real" friends? How can imaginary friends send each other mail? Did you tell your children you are also queen of the quilting bee blocks too?

  19. I am so glad to hear someone else's family thinks they are a little "blog crazy", too. Nice to meet friends around the world through blogland. I love this block. So sunny and happy!

  21. Quilty 'friends' are a special bunch - and it's just great to share
    I also know from fact that it is a small world sometimes it's amazing you can just be around the corner on another continent.

  22. The relationships we devellop online or face to face are all real..... the thing is, if two blog worlds friends met in real life, they would be real friends.... since the relationship is real.

  23. Nah, I don't think we are imaginary friends. My husband calls my bloggy friends my "pen pals." Friendships like this have been going on for ages. But now they are via computer and more "real time." And awesome!

  24. (Pinches arm.) Ow! Yep, I'm real.
