Liebster Award

Surprise!



Rosemary Dickinson of The Knitting Quilter has awarded me the Liebster Blog Award. Thank you, Rosemary

What a surprise--frankly, I didn't even know there was such an award until a few days ago, so it really is a huge surprise.

"The Liebster Award (German for favorite) is for bloggers with 200 followers or less. As a recipient
of the award, you have the chance to thank and link back to the blogger who gave it to you as well as
pass it along to five other deserving blogs.


The Liebster Conventions say:
1.  Thank your award presenter on your blog and link back to him/her.
2. Copy and paste the award to your blog.
3.  Present the Liebster Award to 5 blogs that you think deserve to be recognized.
4.  Let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
5. Have faith that your followers will spread the love too.
 As instructed, I'm passing it on, to some other small sewing and quilt-related blogs with great posts.
In no particular order:

I'm honored to have the award.  I've seen it on a couple of blogs--happened to be there at the right time--and thought, "How interesting."
So, when Rosemary informed me I'd received the award from her, I decided to follow it backwards.
I only followed it back about 12 or 13 generations, and if everyone who was awarded it then chose five recipients, the number of bloggers with this award would be 1,220,703,125.  I'm absolutely certain I haven't seen it on that many blogs. (How many blogs exist, anyway?  Does anyone know?)  I remember my mom insisting I do this math when I received my very first chain letter when I was a child!

Know what?  Makes no sense that this award is still being passed around and is seen on so few blogs, but I'm still glad to have been recognized and would be glad to recognize more people. There are so many tiny little quilting blogs out there that deserve a lot more notice than they are getting, often simply because we haven't found them yet!

I started blogging because I live in the Middle of Nowhere, and I wanted to keep in touch with a few friends and to share mostly my quilting activities.  Sometimes life has gotten so complicated that there was no way I could post.  Now that I'm home for a while because of a work injury, blogging helps me keep more organized and helps me be more productive.  Furthermore, I treasure the friends and acquaintances I've made because of blogging, the knowledge I've gained, and the opportunity to share knowledge with others.  (Back when I began making quilts, any kind of quilt-related knowledge was very hard-won. I'm quite willing to help make that knowledge much more available.)

Happy quiltmaking.....

Thanks for choosing me. I'm REALLY behind right now, but, I'll award this to someone else as soon as I get caught up (at least caught up blogging)
