I've been gifted with the Leibster Award

Astrid at Dragon Stitches by Astrid has gifted me with the Leibster Award. Thank you so much, Astrid!

Liebster is a German word meaning favorite, dearest, or beloved. The Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other new bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers to help spread the word about their blogs and to help them gain wider recognition.

The Liebster award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting.

1. Choose five up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers to award the Liebster to.
2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blog so they know about the award.
4. Share five random facts about yourself that people don't know about you.

My award recipients are listed below. Their blog names are links even though I can't get them to display correctly.

Teresa at Teresa’s Heartfelt Stitches is a lovely lady I was lucky enough to meet at a retreat last fall. She does so many beautiful projects, cross stitch, sewing and others. I recently won a beautiful portfolio that she sewed for one of her lucky followers to win. I’ll be posting pictures later.

Pam at Confessions of a Southern Stitcher is another wonderful lady I met at the same retreat. She does many lovely projects and has recently taken up quilting. Looks like she’s a natural at it!

Colleen at Threads in My Garden was one of my earliest followers. She loves to stitch, sew, quilt and garden.

Terry at Rosy Stitches just finished Dance of the Roses and it is gorgeous! She also does some lovely beadwork.

Melissa at Melissa's Miscellaneous Adventures just finished Mediterranean Mermaid by Mirabilia. Wait till you see it! Melissa also enjoys cross-stitch, baking, reading, sewing, and gardening.

And now the hard part, coming up with 5 things about myself:

1. My brain froze at the thought of coming up with 5 things, since I knew there were not 5 interesting things to share. I considered making stuff up.

2. When I am lucky enough to retire, or at least work part time, the very first thing I will do is get a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Or two!

3. Next to stitching, my favorite thing to do is to sail on Lake Winnipesaukee.

4. I love doing tai chi.

5. After being initially convinced that I would never spend the money for an ebook reader, since I only wanted ‘real’ books’, I ended up owning both a Kindle and a Color nook, and I can’t imagine a day without them.

Thanks again, Astrid!

    I agree with you on the ereader, I love my nook! But a good book is always a wonderful thing.
