This week is turning out to be quite eventful. First, I received my January swap block from Cathy (Adelaide, SA) and it is really pretty. It came with a perfect handmade card and just in time for Valentine's Day.

Second, I entered a lovely blog giveaway by Brenda at Scraps and Strings and somehow the random generator came up with my number!  It was her 3 year blogiversary and she is giving away cute needle cases. Thanks so much for a great giveaway, Brenda!

Lastly, I received a neat little award from Cathy- thanks so much for thinking of me. I accept!

The Rules:
1) You have been tagged, do you want to accept?
If yes, then create a post on your blog and post the love blog photo.
2) Link back to the person who gave you the award and say if you accept.
3) Choose 3-5 of your favorite blogs to tag, link these in your post too and tell the lucky people they have been tagged.

The aim of this award, is to bring unknown good blogs to light, therefore, please don't tag someone with 3000 followers. 

To be honest, it was really hard to pick just 5 when so many people have such great blogs. So, I tried to stay close to or under 50. Here we go:

I also have to give an honorable mention to Cathy and Sue. A great big "thank you" goes out to everyone I follow- your blogs keep me motivated and I appreciate all the support.

  1. Hi Sylvia. Thank you very much for your award. Of course I will accept it. It's my first award ever, I'm so HAPPY!!!

  2. Oh, Sylvia, you are so very kind and I am flattered. I am also an old lady with the computer skills of a toad. ( I know very few people my age that even own a computer) Just reading the instructions blows my brain. Could be that is why I am a hand quilter? My last attempt at adding a link was not only unsuccessful but took several hours off my quilting time and left me frustrated. I love following your blog and think you are quite deserving.

  3. Thank you so much!!! I accept this and I will be doing a post very soon!!
