Liebster Blog Award!


I had the honour of being awarded the Liebster Blog Award by Sydney of Syd the Wyd last week.  Thank you very much Sydney - I am so touched that you like my blog of quilting, crafting and gardening!

So, what is the Liebster Blog Award you may ask?  I shall tell you! 

The Liebster award (German for favourite) 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.

I now have the privilege of selecting five blogs in return that I think deserve this award.  This is really tough because I follow some fantastic blogs - and so many of them are newbies like me!!  So, here are just five of my favourite blogs (who also have fewer than 200 followers) so I hope you stop by and check them out!  In no particular order:
You all rock!  Thank you for blogging about your crafty projects and providing me with inspiration to create my own things.  I started my blog because it was on my '2012 bucket list'.  To make one quilt in my life was what I had on my '2009 bucket list' and I am so pleased that I did (thank you to Karen - Highview Crafts).  I became hooked - the fabric, the patterns, the maths (arrggh) - the POSSIBILITIES!  I was quickly drawn into this magical world of quilting.  And as a super side-effect, I am now part of a blogging-quilting-community which I love. 

So there you are.  I can hear the music playing so it is time to wrap this speech up and leave the stage!  

Liebster Conventions:
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 recognised.
4. Let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
5. Have faith that your followers will spread the love too!

I agree Amy! I spent the entire weekend sewing, which is something I rarely have time to do but so enjoy! Thanks again for recognizing my little blog. I'll be posting my choices for the award soon!
