Making My Day!

In catching up with my blog reading, I was very surprised and pleased to learn that Kathryn awarded me a "You Make My Day" award! Thank you so much, Kathryn!

Not knowing the actual rules for what I'm supposed to do now, I traced the award back to Mel's blog, which listed the rules for this award.

The Rules:
Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times.

I read many more than 10 blogs regularly, so it was really hard to choose. In no specific order, here are some of the bloggers who frequently make my day:

  1. Jane - whose blog is the place for inspiration and encouragement in stitching painted canvases, not to mention lots of notices of sales, new designs, and new threads.

  2. Carol-Anne - who shares her journey of learning Japanese Embroidery with beautiful photos of her work.

  3. Joanie - who stitches some beautiful reproduction samplers and is another upstate NY stitcher.

  4. Elisabeth - who inspires with her amazing surface embroidery.

  5. Karen - who mostly knits now, but her sense of humor still amuses me as it did when she was a local stitcher (before she moved away).

  6. Jocelyn - who does a range of creative needlework styles, including some really neat freeform needlepoint - and she often leaves great comments here.

  7. Rissa - whose blog highlights her amazing range of textile hobbies, from stitching to crazy quilting to spinning. Plus she's a fellow "dog person", though her pups are much smaller than my greyhounds.

  8. Pierrette - who shares my enjoyment of many stitching techniques.

  9. Karoline - who stitches gorgeous repro and historical-style samplers and smalls, and always leaves a kind word on my posts.

  10. And last, but certainly not least, Kathryn - who somehow keeps track of all of her cross stitch projects (many with sheep!) while being constantly on the go between two homes (in Maui and Las Vegas) and the many conventions she and her DH manage. Plus she always takes the time to comment here!

Thank you all for making my day!

Joanie said...

Wow! You've made my day! I never thought that I'd get a blog award (I think I'm boring)!

I read your blog religiously and I am so inspired by your skills and talent with a needle and thread.
Thanks AGAIN! :-) !
