Awards Time

My friend Myra, click here myras-tactilepleasuresinfabric.blogspot.com, has given me an AWARD, recently developed by a blogger named, Megan aka The Bitchy Stitcher, go see her blog here, for a full description of the award, Megan says it's to honour "any blogger who crafts, sews, quilts - you know, makes stuff - no matter how crappy (or how good). A way to say - I like your blog, like your stuff, and I'm pretty sure you have a good sense of humor". Megan also says "all the lovely people whom I have had the pleasure to meet through this humble blog are all very talented and not the least bit ugly, but I am sure they will all take this award in the spirit intended"

In all that, I am honored and tickled pink to know that Myra likes my sense of humour and my blog. Cool huh LOL.... That being said we continue to inspire and encourage each other with our quilting. It's a good thing!

Now, all the lovely people whom I have had the pleasure to meet through this humble blog are all very talented and not the least bit ugly, but I am sure they will all take this award in the spirit intended."Recipients are to pass it on to 3 bloggers that fit that category. This was not easy to pick, so I added a few more ..........thank you to all........

I can't believe that this guild meets every Monday night, yes I said every Monday and also they get together on Thursday (9am-3pm) for quilting whatever your heart desires.....WOW...
