Liebster Award

I won a blog award.  That always adds a bit of smile to my day.  Blog awards seem to come it spits and spurts and then a bit of nothing (aside: I think we've been in a bit of nothing spell).  So this one came from Vicki of Felines and Fiber Arts. It's called a Liebster Blog.

According to Vicki Liebe means Love in German.  Now my husband and I have a hefty dose of German with namable relatives that came over here fleeing the Hitler Nazi Regime and after 10 years of being together we might not have a "song" but my DH calls me Liebchen which means sweetheart so isn't it nice how it has come full circle into a blog award?  Many thanks to those of you that read my blog.

Now this is an open ended award and you know I always like those because then I don't add effort to anyone's day, but as we have been having this dry spell in our corner of blog land the rules are simple anyone I pick to play it forward has to have less that 300 followers and I can pick 3 to 5 people but I don't have to.

So here are my votes.  Heather of Miracles Momma Designs .  This wonderful lady has been my gal pal for nearly 8 years and for that alone she deserves to win an award, but more than that her blog has a certain something about it that draws you in and from the moment you first find her you're her friend.

Next is Sue of Quilt Times.  I want to be Sue when I'm grow up.  LOL.  Really Sue is kind hearted and sprinkles compliments and happiness like my DH sprinkles salt.  She must have charmed the socks right off her Mr. Fixit and now he's so surrounded by beautiful quilts and a sweetheart that he'll stay forever and ever.

Last by never least is Penny at Stitchin' Penny's blog. If Sue touches my heart with her kind words, Penny Touches my Soul.  I believe she and I are birds of a feather.  We have come from very different walks of life to find ourselves with chronic pain that doesn't listen and trust me no one wants pain that hasn't learned any manners.  Sometimes reading Penny's Blog is like looking through a looking glass.  I'm certain magic wands were dreamed up for times like these.  Not for Prince Charmings and Chariots but instead to have to ability to wipe away the pain and suffering; that is true magic.

Thank you so much for the blog award Liz. Gosh, I can't believe it's already been 8 years! It seems like yesterday. Thank you as well for your sweet words about my blog. I felt the same exact way about you!

Thanks for the award, it is a lovely feeling when someone does something like that. Mind you, I had to laugh when I read that you want to be me when you grow up as my family are always suggesting it's time I grew up!
