Sharing Blog Awards

If you've got to run ... can you think of a better location ???  I took my camera with me when I ran this weekend and captured a few shots of the fabulous view I have!

And the other cool thing is that there are some blog awards going on out there.  And Kati at the From the Blue Chair and Molly at Bailey Girl 5 have been kind enough to nominate my little, unknown blog for a recognition.  Well ... it's not really recognition ... it's a way to share some relatively unknown blogs that we've taken a liking to.

In addition to regular visits to Kati and Molly's blogs, I've got a few lesser known blogs out there that I really enjoy keeping an eye on ... there's some real talent out there people!!!  A few of my favorites:

 And then ... what comes with the deal is a chance to share a little bit about me ...
  1. I am a little bit of a perfectionist and I am really working to make sure that doesn't get in the way of my quilting 
  2. Per the photos ... at 49 years of age, I am teaching myself to run and will run my first event, an 8K, in Vancouver, BC on May 1st.
  3. My husband is retired ... I continue to work.  He's an angel ... me, not so much.
  4. I am a 9-year ovarian cancer surviver - and I try to live up to that gift every day.
  5. My garden is fabulous, but I can't seem to manage to grow a plant inside the house.
  6. We are blessed to have the cabin escape to - where the world moves to simple things like spending time with friends and family, communing with nature and, of course, quilting!
  7. My house is a bit messy ... with fabric and batting in too many places and an ironing board that is now a permanent fixture in the family room.
Take a chance to look at these blogs ... talent ... pure talent.

All the best


  1. That's really sweet of you to mention me - thank you.
    Oh...and number 5 is me too!

  2. Lisa,
    Thanks so much for including my blog on your list! Your blog is a definite must read for me :)

    I clicked over to the first blog on your list - Just A Bit Frayed - she's from Ann Arbor too! Better yet, she is a member of the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild, which I am planning on attending this month.

    The internet is such a wonderful wide world it makes it even more fun and surprising when someone turns out to be "next door"!

  3. OHMYGOSH! Thanks so much for mentioning me and my blog. WOW! I'm so excited! It's nice to know that someone thinks what I do is cool. Well, I mean, I think I'm cool know. :)
