I love to share information with you all. I just went to this neat site that came from Country Living. I haven't explored it all yet, but looks like a lot of fun information. Hope you enjoy it.

Fall has arrived

Even though fall has arrived in Niles, the weather feels more like summer (aren't we lucky!?)
If you want to get in the mood for the fall season take a ride to Half Moon Bay. Punkin's every where.
Half Moon Bay
Of course you can also get in the mood at My Friends and I. We have lots of fall and Halloween decorations. Like this silly scarecrow sitting on a pumpkin. He's so cute. Doesn't he look like he belongs on someone's porch? hint, hint!
Also just in for the chilly weather we know is coming, are these cute thick socks. Pick up a pair for wearing around the house on those cold fall nights. We have other designs, not just halloween. Come in and check them all out. They are so cute!

September National Sewing Month

That's right, September is National Sewing Month.
We have some pretty neat vintage thimbles and other sewing items in the shop, why not add to or start a collection of sewing items.
The picture below reminds me of watching my Mom sew, I'm sure a lot of you have those memories.
Did you know that we have a beautiful fabric store in Niles? The name is Color me Quilts and More. Go to to check out their Web Page. Stop in and say hello to the owner Diane next time your in town and say "you heard about her quilt shop while on My FRIENDS AND I blog". She has a beautiful selection of fabric and also a nice selection of yarn and sewing items.
