I Am Grinning!

Oh my goodness!  I have been chosen for the Liebster Blog Award!  Just when I was thinking that no one read my blog, and I was becoming a real slacker with my posting (well, I haven’t actually been slacking, just way too busy)…I can’t believe it! 

Thank you to Janet at.What comes next?  Janet, I am humbly honored.  Janet is an extremely talented machine quilter, so this really means a lot to me.  Not only is Janet a fabulous machine quilter, but she does this on her domestic sewing machine.  Amazing!!  If you are unfamiliar with the Liebster Blog award, it is usually presented to smaller blogs as a form of recognition and support.  "Smaller blog" is defined as a blog with fewer than 200 followers.  Well, I guess I qualify for the fewer than 200 followers, and I really do appreciate the support, Janet. 

What is a Liebster?  

"Liebster" means "dearest" or "favorite" in German.   

As a recipient you are expected to:     
Thank the person that nominated you and link back to them.
·         Present the award to five other blogs
·         Let them know by commenting on their blog
·         Post the award on your blog

I would like to recognize the following blogs with the Liebster Award:

 I just received this beautiful hydrangea with FRESH colors... I love the blue petals, with the green pot and how it looks so FRESH against the backdrop of my carpenter star.  I was so tired of the muted, drab colors that I used to decorate with, and I'm trying to brighten things up a bit...    I'm also playing around with my camera, trying to understand aperture and shutter speeds, ahhh...  I think I need to find a photography class nearby...
Yesterday we received a FRESH new blanket of 10" of snow.  We have been enthralled with the birds that you can see through my dining room window.  At one time, I counted over 40 birds feeding there - about 20 quail on the ground, with finches and other small birds in the trees.
Here is the FRESH new quilt that I am making, as seen from the entry to my studio.  I have been wanting to make a triple Irish chain for years.  Since I am on a stashbusting binge, this is a scrappy batik version that I spied on Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville site.  I just love her stuff, don't you?
