WOW, Every morning I read my email with my breakfast. This morning one special email brought a big smile to my face.
I recieved a nomination for the Sunshine Award from Edith Koprek at Inch By Inch Quilting.
Edith thank you so much, I really appreciate you choosing me for the award.
Please click on Edith's link to view her blog, it is well worth visiting.
Now for how the Sunshine award works. There are a few rules and criteria to be followed.
You need to create a post with the following details:
There you go, your are all done.
Something about me.
Well most people that know me well know I am a gadget freak. I love my Mac computer and my sewing machines, my APQS Lenni longarm. I could add to the list but that would be scary.
My other love is my Kindle. Since purchasing the Kindle nearly 2 years ago I have read so much more than any other time in my life. I am a big fan of science fiction. Right now I'm reading the Weather Warden series.
The only problem with reading more, I can find myself still awake a 2am if a book has really got my attention.
Lastly, which I think and hope of most people, the most important thing to me are my kids and Granddaughter. Yes they drive me batty sometimes, but I don't know where I would be without them.
Now time to nominate some of my favourite Bloggers and Friends
My First choice is
Kay from Borderline Quilter . I had the pleasure to meet Kay when she came to my house to see my Longarm quilting machine and frame. We hit it off straight away. Kay's quilting is fabulous, please click her link to view her blog. you won't be disappointed. there is lots of wonderful eye candy.
My next choice is
Kathy from Tamarack Shack. If I ever need any inspiration I go to Kathy's blog. Her work is so beautiful. Kathy also has some great tutorials that she shares with us. One being her snow dying which I am longing to try, not enough snow in my part of the world this winter. Please visit Kathy's blog. Again you won't be disappointed. Eye candy galore.
My third choice is
Marjorie from Marjorie's Quilting Bee . Marjorie has a wonderful blog, with tons of inspiration. She is very giving with her knowledge and time with turorials and help. I am especially taken with Marjorie's embroidery designs for the Accuquilt Go Appliqué dies. They are very well digitised, and sew up beautifully. I am hoping she will add the Go Giraffe Lion and Monkey to her embroidery collection. Hint hint :). Please pay her blog a visit.
My fourth choice is
Mary from Mary's Quilts . Mary is another special lady, giving so much time to help other quilters .
one of her blogs is The Heart String Quilts program . Please pay this blog a visit to find out about the Heart String program. The work the people do to help others by the making and giving of quilts is amazing.
Beside these two blogs Mary has another site where she freely shares her quilt patterns, and can I say these are wonderful patterns. All I can say is A VERY BIG THANK YOU Mary for being so generous.
Please pay Mary a visit at her blogs Mary's Quilt Patterns
My 5th Choice
Last but not least is Janette's Blog J Quilts. I have chatted with Janette by email for the last couple of years. She has the same Longarm Machine that I use. I have watched the progress of Janette's quilting go from strength to strength. she has become a great long arm quilter that produces beautiful quilts. Please visit her Blog and look out for photos of her first Wholecloth. It is beautiful.
