Why thank you Stephanie from Spontaneous Threads!! I am very honored. In fact I am so happy to have been picked for this award that I think I will have my first giveaway to celebrate!!! More on that later. First there are some duties that come with being chosen for this award and I am more than happy to fulfill them.
First - Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
- Done above but here is Stephanie's link again Spontaneous Threads. I would highly recommend checking her out. She always has some creative goodness happening there.
- I am a huge sci-fi addict...books and movies I LOVE them all.
- Maybe this one is because of number 1 but: Given the chance, I would go into space without a second thought if I could take my husband and daughter (even if we weren’t guaranteed safe return).
- My kindergarten teacher’s name was Mrs. Cowie (cow-ee)…pretty funny when you’re in kindergarten.
- My grandfather bought my cousins and I a Shetland pony that we named Charlie when I was 1. We had him up until I was in high school sometime.
- Meatloaf shares the same birthday as I do. The singer not the meal. (Just because we're talking about Meatloaf did you know that Meatloaf’s credit card says Meatloaf? That useless piece of knowledge was brought to you by Pop up Video).
- I tell everyone my first concert was Metallica but it was really Nelson because I got free tickets and it was a week before Metallica.
- My brother once told my mom that I had gotten a tattoo on my butt and my mom made me pull my pants down to prove that I didn’t.
- Laura at Hobbying Around. Laura is in the 1st VQB that I signed up for.
- Janet at Entropy Undone. I found her blog recently through my #6 nomination. She made a fantastic pillow that I would like to try to
- Julie at Distant Pickles. She is in 2 VQB's that I've signed up for. I especially enjoyed this post.
- Heidi at craft:nosis. Found through the flickr group for Block-A-Palooza. This was the post that got me to become a follower: New York Beauty. Isn't it fantastic?!?!
- Melissa at A Child of the Wild Blue Yonder. I totally love her choices in fabrics...maybe one day when I grow up I will be able to throw things together like her.
- Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Sarah's blog is great! I found her blog through a giveaway she hosted that I won a few months ago and I still read it religiously. She hosts a linky party every Friday and she features one of her favorite blogs every Sunday. Do not read this blog if over achievers bug you because she will totally get under your skin. I don't know how she does as much as she does...she's amazing!
- Emails forthcoming.
Here it is:The Art Quilt Collection - I won a copy of this book in a giveaway awhile ago but the publisher sent me 2 copies! I tried to contact the blog owner that I won the book from but she never got back to me so I want to share the wealth with all of you. :O) This book is really interesting. There is so much inspiration to be found here! In it is a quilt that uses pleated fabric. It looks really hard but I wouldn't mind trying that sometime...luckily, with that particular quilt it gives you a little tutorial to see how it is done. I am happy to have this book in my collection.
I am also throwing in 2 charm packs. Spirit by Lila Tueller and Dream On by Urban Chiks.
