My Very First Award ...

... for this blog.  I am so excited to have received this.  I have been chosen by Giles to receive a Liebster Award from the Touch and Sew Blog and you can see the post here.
The award is for blogs with less than 200 followers, and the recipient should pass the award on to 5 more bloggers.  I have to tell you how hard this was because so many of the blogs I follow have zillions of followers and one or two of my recipients will be there with another one or two followers.  But I have really loved following these 5 blogs, as well as all the others I follow which are so inspirational, and one or two of them have become great friends and they all always totally entertain me though I don't always comment on their blogs I just wanted you all to know how much I love them. This list is absolutely in no particular order it just is

Liebster Conventions:
*Thank your award presenter on your blog {thanks Giles} - done
*Link back to the blogger who presented you with the award - done
*Copy and paste the award to your blog - done
*Present the Liebster Award to 5 blogs that have fewer then 200 followers that you think deserve to be recognized - done
*Let them know by leaving a comment on their blog - done

Until next time ... 
Lots of Love

  1. Wow, thanks for even having me on the list, better go and update the blog. I have been slipping again

  2. LOL I found that tricky too, lots of blogs I follow are already steaming past the 200 followers mark! And it's so hard to limit it to 5 too, when so many great bloggers have so many great things to say! I tried to pick people who have really taken the time (and trouble!) to get to know me, either on the blog, or through emails and tweets as well!

    You definitely deserved this award and I hadn't thought about it being your first award into the bargain! (Which makes me thing ... this was only my second ever award and I didn't do anything for my first one so this really becomes my first one too! hehe ... I think I had a Versatile Blogger award before this but there was something I found difficult about it ... oh yes, I think I had to pass it on to 67 blogs and I had a grand total of maybe 65 blogs I followed!)

    Thanks for being a great friend as well as a fun blogger! :)


  3. Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Thank you so much!! I'm so excited! What a nice surprise to be catching up on my blog reading and to see this! I really enjoy your blog too!

    Every time I read your signature and this:

    "American by birth and MOUTH but British in every other way"

    it makes me giggle.

    Thanks again!

  4. Thanks so much Patricia! I am busy writing up my post with my 5 picks. Small blogs rule!!

  6. Thank you sweet friend...I have posted all my favs...some post pretty regularly, one doesn't - but she is so inspirational I had to include her!
    I should be sending this award to YOU!!!
    You are the one that makes me laugh and makes me want to make you things!!!

  7. Thank you Pattimyself. I have three and one is my daughter. But I don't blog much, only if I have a sewing project to share. So its ok by me. You have an awesome day and hope you feel better.

  8. Thanks for your blog about Giles. After reading his blog, I have a new inspirational story to share with my students when they hit the wall. I also appreciate the link to the rulsers. Yet another tool I could get into using.


I absolutely LOVE it when you leave a comment and I read each and every comment and try to reply to you all.
