One Lovely Blog Award!

I received the nicest little surprise yesterday! Melanie from 1000 Needles nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award! Thank you, Melanie!

I have pasted the award photo and the rules directly from Melanie’s post.  Here they are:

The Rules:

*Thank the person who nominated you, and give a link to his/her blog.

*List the rules.

*Display  the image of the award on your post.

*List seven facts about yourself.

*Nominate (up to) 15 bloggers for this award, and notify them to let them know you have nominated them.

Seven Facts About Me:

  1. My husband taught me to use a sewing machine, lay out a pattern and make my first garment. He took me to a quilt show and made me talk to the ladies there. So this quilting obsession? It’s his fault. Totally.
  2. I started quilting 28 years ago. As a stay at home mom, it became my mental therapy. It still is.  Apparently, I need a lot of it. The world can be thankful that I found quilting and didn’t become a psychopath.
  3. I play librarian for 20 hours each week. I get to spend thousands of dollars every year buying books (including quilt books!). It is the best job I have ever had.
  4. My favorite color is red.
  5. I love coffee.
  6. I adore silence. I like at least an hour of it each day before I talk to anyone, except Jesus. He likes silence with his coffee too.
  7. I believe that any creativity I possess, comes from Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth. I pray the work of my hands will bring honor to Him.

Here are my nominees in no particular order.

  1. Barb at Fun with Barb
  2. Anja at Anja Quilts
  3. Lori at Humble Quilts
  4. Jayne at Twiggy and Opal
  5. Elaine at Muddling Through
  6. Cecile at Patchwork Inspirations
  7. Abigail at Cut & Alter
  8. Wanda at Exuberant Color
  9. Kathy at Empty Nest But Full Heart
  10. Em at Em’s Scrapbag

I enjoy MANY blogs and could have nominated hundreds. I decided to limit myself to 10. You aren’t obligated to accept and play along, but I hope you will! I enjoy your blogs and know others will as well!

Have a great day!
