Sweet Rewards

We stitching bloggers have a mutual admiration society going on with awards given every now and then. It's a fun thing and gives an opportunity for new bloggers to get to know others in our online community. Two of my friends have honored me on their blogs with the following:

Linda recently awarded me the Kreativ Blogger award. I must now pass it on with the following rules:
1. The winner may put the logo on her 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.

My nominees are:
Connie of The Lacey Thread
Sonda of Who Has Time to Stitch?
Ginger of Dreams of Stitching
Sandra of Bubble Babble
Heather of Quilt or Stitch?

Then dear Su sent me the Brillante Weblog award with the following, very similar, rules:

1 Put the logo on your blog;
2 Add a link to the person who awarded you;
3 Nominate at least 7 other blogs;
4 Add links to those blogs on yours;
5 Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

Oh my, seven more?! Couldn't I send it to 107? Yes, there are even more than 107 that I could conceivably send awards to. But for now I'll nominate:

Debby of Stitch Wizard
Dani of Black Belt Stitching Wizard
Ruth Rachel of Willing Hands
Wendy of Home at Work
Sharon of Cross Stitch Obsession
Lynn of Kearnel's Korner
Elisabeth of Sew in Love

This is a short listing of the many, many stitchers who have inspired me over the course of my blogging experience, each of whom deserve recognition. My heartfelt thanks to all of you for sharing your talent and lives with me - that is truly the sweetest reward. :D

Thank you, Von! That was really sweet of you for thinking of me! Love that you got two awards! I'll post mine after Shadow Shot Sunday with Hey Harriet. :) Thanks again!

Elisabeth Braun said...

Thanks for the award!=)

Love the fabrics for your girls' dresses and look forward to seeing those metamorphosise into pretty clothes. Get well soon to DS and love your pretty cards.

The twins video was mad, wasn't it!!??=) I wish I had a twin sister, or even an 'ordinary' one!

Ginger said...

Thanks for the award, Von - I have never gotten anything like that before! You are so funny - since I just posted for the first time in 2 months! At least I have gotten to SEE you recently...
I hope that healing is going well for Brendan.
Hugs, Ginger

Wendy said...

Thank you so much, Von, I feel very honoured! And I would definitely second the 2 awards given to you!!

Have a great weekend :-D

Jenna said...

Congratulations on both of your awards, Von! I think that they are both well-deserved. :)

Lynn said...

Thanks so much for thinking of me Von, it's really sweet of you! I'll take your advice and not pass it along at this time since I'm using the computer at the library while on vacation and have limited time in which to use it.
I'll check in when I return. Thanks again!
