An Award!


I've been really lame about blogging lately. I have to admit I started my blog so I could play along with some of the hops and sew alongs and they have been keeping me really busy. I've been sewing like crazy and I'll have pictures soon. 

Debbie from Stitchintherapy has dragged me out of the sweatshop. She nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award. I have to say I'm really honored that she thought of me. Debbie is one of my idols in this blogging world. She makes the most amazing quilts and actually teaches as she goes. Her step by step tutorials are so easy to follow, with lots of pictures for those of us who need to see what those directions really need. You may remember my Black Heart water color quilt that I blogged about.

I did that quilt as a trial run and although I wasn't thrilled with the fabrics I used, I now am pretty confident that when I've collected the right fabrics I will be able to make the water color quilt of my dreams. All thanks to Debbie. She just recently walked us through how to make a Bargello, with her usual easy style. I've been too busy to follow along, but I will be going back. 
I never miss any of her postings and her blog is a real treat in the eye candy department. When you visit, look at the top and click on some of menu items running along there. Lots of WOW.

So Thank You Debbie, I'm really thrilled you thought of me. 

Now, the award says I'm supposed to list 15 blogs for nominations and before I do any of that, I want to know if any of you are interested. I would be happy to list your blog. Remember the requirements are you nominate 15 blogs, plus you make a list of 7 facts about you, that's the fun but hard part. If you're interested in picking up some award bling for your blog, let me know. 

I'll be back soon, I have a lot to show you.

Thanks for stopping in,
