and the award goes to.....

OMG!    Belinda at Samplings from a Blue Ribbon Girl  presented me with my first blog award today.   Actually it was a few days ago and it took me that long to compose my 'acceptance' posting.   I feel like Sally Field at the Academy Awards.....:"you like me, you really like me" which I have heard is one of those quotes attributed to people but were never really said.   Anyway......this is pretty cool! Thank you so much Belinda! It is strange receiving an award for maintaining my little online diary of my life, likes and dislikes.  Even stranger receiving an award for checking out other's postings.  In the beginning, I would have to ask my daughter....what's my password again? ...how do I get in?   However during the last year I got more into blogging.   It has allowed me to share my joy of needlework and life with others as well as take ''peeks" at others works, ideas, etc.   I have learned so much.   The blogging world of stitchers is a great place to be a part of.

Here's how this award words.  The rules are simple:
  1. One must accept the award
  2. Thank the person who gave you the award.
  3. Add a link to the person who gave you the award.
  4. Paste the award on your blog.
  5. Write 10 things about yourself others might not know
  6. Pass the award on to 10 others.

So, I have done #1, #2, #3 and #4 above.   Now for #5....  I don't know that there are ten facts, let alone interesting facts about me to share!  I don't think of myself at interesting but I will try.  The rules don't say they have to be interested, just facts.....lol!
  1. My right shoulder is lower than my left.  My children love to poke fun acting like Igor with arm dragging.  It is NOT that noticable but required four years of corrective gym instead of regular gym....which I believe only made it worse!
  2. I have only live in 3 houses in my lifetime, all within an 8 mile radius.  Four is you count the one I moved from before I was two so I don't remember it.
  3. I love watching Design Star and Project Runway. 
  4. I was addicted to HGTV long before Extreme Makeover ever existed.
  5. I had 5 years of Latin in high school - started in 8 grade.   (Boring fact!)
  6. I believe I am a little OCD.  Realizing this when I noticed I clean my desk at work 5 times a day putting away all the pencils, paper clips, etc. to have a clean work area. 
  7. I love Craftsman Style homes and my dream is to live in one some day.
  8. I have never been pulled over by a police officer and would probably pee my pants if I were stopped!  TMI TMI!  (Gosh - I hope I don't jinx myself!!)
  9. I am a left-hander person in a right-handed world.
  10. When I do things, like painting a room, cooking on the grill, playing shuffle board, I put my free hand behind my back which is a source of great amusement to my children.   I blame it on my father making me sit on my right hand at dinner so I would use it to help get the food on my fork!

And  if I thought #5 was hard......here are my nominations in no particular order.   This is hard because there are so many sites I enjoy following and learn from.   If only I could nominate more, my list of favs is a long one.  Like Belinda who nominated me, I considered writing something about each one but my comments would be a string of kudos and praises.  I so enjoy my time at each of the sites of these incredibily gifted and talented and generous people and hope you will too.   Check them out! 


  1. Istitchaholic 
  2. Between Crosses with Nina - I do have to say, she has the most exquisite photography!
  3. TeaKettle Corner
  4. Craftymoo
  5. Quietly Stitching
  6. The Twisted Sister
  7. A Work in Progress
  8. A Box of Chocolates
  9. The Painted Quilt
  10. Stampin Fun with Selene
I think one of the fun parts is visiting the other blogs you haven't found yet!
