A Nice Surprise & Honor

I am honored to have received the Versatile Blogger Award! This is my very first blogging award, so you can imagine my excitement. I received it from Linda of Stray Stitches and Marta of Polka Dot Classic. Be sure to pay them both a visit! Thank you gals so much!

So here's the rules to this award:
1- Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.
2 - Share seven things about yourself on the post.
3- Pass the award to fifteen bloggers that you think deserve it.
4- Lastly, contact all of the bloggers that you've picked for the award

Seven things about me:
1) I'm not a great singer but that doesn't stop me from giving concerts in my car...to myself...at the top of my lungs.  It sounds pretty good to me, but I'm sure I look a tad silly!

2) I've been quilting for almost 5 years and had my first mishap with a rotary cutter just last saturday. Note to self, curl those fingers back and slowwwww down! I'll spare you the details...it wasn't pretty. And don't worry Shannon, your fabric was saved but your block will be late!

3) I am a tennis fan and a Roger Federer fanatic.

4) I like to play Guitar Hero with my 3 grown sons and am pretty good at it.  ; )

5) I am allergic to ALL fragrances and had to ban sprays and lotions from my high school classroom. That also means no air fresheners, scented candles or anything of the sort.  Thank goodness for all the unscented products available these days. 

6) I have an 8 year old grandson who was adopted at birth by a wonderful couple and have had the pleasure of remaining involved in his life through an open adoption. I am proud and grateful to be a part of this unique, special extended family!

7)  I have trouble being concise, hence the length of #1, 2, 5 and 6 above.

And it's my pleasure to pass on the award to the following bloggers who have inspired me, each in their own unique way with their blogs and encouraging me with their kind words.

How exciting! You so deserve recognition for your amazing quilting blog. I love it even though I don't/can't quilt! I would probably have had an "accident" just taking a rotary tool out of it's package let alone trying actually USE one! Great job bff!
