Wow! I won an award!

How exciting!  As I was catching up on my blog reading, after a very long day of grocery shopping, I clicked over to Patti's blog here: P.S. I Want To Quilt Too!!  and as I was reading the post I saw a link to my very own blog!

The wonderful and humorous Patti awarded me the  Liebster Award  which she was awarded by Giles who's blog I recently found and started to follow as well.

This award is for blogs with less than 200 followers and recipients are supposed to award it to  5 of their favorite blogs.

It was so difficult to pick just 5!  Of course there are some blogs that I follow that have way more than 200 followers.  I basically went down my list of blogs and looked for ones that have done posts that made me laugh or inspired me recently.  I follow close to 200 blogs and feeds.  I wish I could give about 50 of these awards!

Anyway, in no particular order are my 5 picks:

Masha at Уют своими руками
      She translates to English which is helpful, but I'd follow her anyway even if I couldn't understand it because her embroidery and ribbon work is gorgeous!  She has inspired me to actually make the Crazy Quilt that I started but haven't worked on for years.

Nadine at This Creative Bliss
    I just love seeing what she is up to. The only problem is she has ugly wrinkles in ... well you can go look and see.

Danny at Mommy For Reals
    She's so creative and cute, how could I not choose her?

Richard at Richard Quilts
     I am enjoying watching the journey of this new quilter.  He is incredibly prolific in his quilt making and he's only been at it about 2 months!

Shevvy, quilting in London
     She blogs about a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  Plus she is a bubble wrap aficionado.

So for those I have awarded, here are the rules:

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

Well there you have it!  YaY! for blog awards!!
