The Blog Friends Award

My dear daughter, Caryl, has nominated me for the Blog Friends Award. I kind of like the description of this award;

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers."

The reason I like blogging is because of the friends I have made from all over the world so this is an appropriate award. Plus I get to see some amazing quilt ideas, many of which I have then used in my own work.

Caryl is a very creative young woman. She's a first grade teacher and also works on weekends at the local Hallmark store which cracks me up because her craft of choice right now is card making! She makes awesome cards and is a master crocheter so check her blog out. She lives in a cute Victorian two-family home not far from me so I'm glad she's close by. She's my buddy for checking out antique and consignment stores.


  1. What a wonderful award! Congrats! I, too, like blogging for the same reasons.

  2. What a sweet daughter to nominate you. Congratulations! Well deserved.
    Happy Mothers Day to you.

  3. Congratulations on your award. I think your best prize is your wonderful daughter! I agree with your philosophy about blogging. What a neat way to bring people together!


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
