A big thank you to Lee for giving me this award, especially in what's been a bit of a stressy week! And Lee, I've been a good girl and followed your instructions and checked out the other nominees :o) - there's some lovely stitching out there!
This is going to be tough, because so many people in my blog feed have been nominated already, and I enjoy every single blog I read - otherwise I wouldn't keep peeking! Anyway, here are five of my favourites:
Anna makes me laugh loads with her down to earth take on stitching and life in general.
Barbara is a great crafter but where does she find the time? I would be exhausted if I had her life! It's a real pleasure and a privilege to share her family life and stitching.
Michelle stitches some lovely pieces, and her positive outlook on life is always cheering to read.
Emily's creativity with her designing and her willingness to try new techniques is always inspiring!
and finally, this award goes collectively to the wonderful group of people on the Hooked on Exchanges blog, all 100 of them! I love looking at what is stitched for each exchange, and I've been the lucky recipient of several of these pieces so I know what a talented bunch hang out there - ably organised by Carol and Cathy!
Now, if you awardees want to carry this on (but no pressure - and you follow/bend/break the rules as you see fit), here's what you need to do:
1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Put a link to the person you got the award from.
3. Nominate 5 blogs.
4. Put links to the blogs.
5. Leave a message for your nominees.
