I just want to thank ECS for putting together this chit chat site. I have not met any of but feel so blessed to be able to chat with you. I also know if I have a problem, someone will help me with their words and encouragement. . So thank you. Sue

I agree with you Sue. This is a wonderful site of warm and caring and FUNNY people! Plus all of the helpful advice and support for our times of trials in life. I too thank ECS for this site and so enjoy coming on here and reading people's thoughts and comments. I don't always reply (figure people get tired of hearing me babble away), but I do so enjoy it all.

Janet I though I was the only one who only posted off and on. I think people get tired of hearing from me. I am mostly homebound so this forum is a great way for me to stay in touch with people all over. I love it!

I agree with both of you. This chat room is a great place to get help with any questions we may have. Everyone here is very friendly. Sometimes we get sarcastically funny including me, but we enjoy life. Post here as often as you can. I love hearing from everyone.

I am going to ditto all of the comments. Except, I love to read all comments and I never get tired of anybody's thoughts or feelings. This is the only outlet that I have and if someone comes on and says "I sneezed" my thought is God bless you and I will post it. I consider all my friends and feel that we are all connected. I feel like we all live next door to one another and we are in and out the backdoor of friends' house several times a day. I can't stand not answering anybody's post if I see no reply and by golly, I am going to touch base with he or she so they know someone is out there and cares about him or her. When I don't hear from a "regular", I worry and start to pray for their health and welfare. I don't want to hurt anybody's feelings either. I feel we are here together, connected. If I told you how many times I check to see if there is a new post, you would send me to the looney bin. I think we can all share the trials and tribulations of life because we are seeing "inside each other" rather than just we look like on the outside. The inside is much more important than the outside. One time I was in the hospital when the Las Vegas tragedy happened and I started to post at 2 in the morning and there were stitchers out there and we were talking about the tragedy. It was like someone was at my bedside in the guest chair and I was not alone. So, feel free to come in my back door anytime . We will sit and have tea and cookies (unless we need something stronger) and solve all the troubles in the world. Peace. Pam

I love this site. if I try and talk to someone about my stitching they look at me funny. like who still sews by HAND. that's what machines are for. no one else gets it.

I read more than I post as I am a little introverted but I really enjoy the camaraderie we all share. You all seem like lovely people that I would love to enjoy a cup of coffee with.

I agree whole-heartedly! Some may get a little preachy, some condescending, some of us just are glad to give insight from years of experience. Me? I write a bit, go away for a bit, but like the contact with fellow stitchers.

Pamelastine- couldn't have said it better! Love my new life in England but look to this site for my stitching connection! Wouldn't it be great if we could all get together at some point! ( Kristi- start working on it when you have time to spare- as if!😀😀) Anyway- this misplaced Canuck thanks you all for your friendship

I love this chat and agree with every comment. Sometimes this is the only place I have to just "talk" since we live in the middle of God's country, while it is nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of everything it does get lonely out here, especially when DH off to work and it is just the cats and I for a few days. I do wish you guys were closer so we could stitch and have tea or coffee together I don't know anybody that does it anymore except for this chat. Thank you all for the fun and the laughs keep it coming. 😊

I told you I read the comments a lot. I am getting ready to go to bed and am thinking of all you stitchers out there in the world. Wishing all of you good dreams and restful sleep. God bless. Pam
