Liebster Blog Award

WOW! Thank you!! I don’t know what else to say - ;))

That was my response to BillieBee when she left me a comment that she had awarded me the Liebster Blog Award -

I repeat -

WOW! Thank you!! I don’t know what else to say - ;))

Now I must admit that at first I thought that it was one of those silly chain things -

So I “Googled” the Liebster Blog Award -

To see what the deal was -

And found that “Liebster” is supposed to be a German word meaning dearest, beloved, or favorite. The award’s origin is unknown but it is a chain award passed on from one blog to another to promote your favorite blogs.

You all know that I am not one to normally do chain letters or "chain" anything -

But I thought that this one was a bit different -

Small blogs get a bit of recognition from other small blogs -

Which is kinda cool if you ask me -

And with this one -

I don’t have to tell you 10 little secrets - ;))

So -

According to BillieBee -

The Liebster is given to blogs that deserve to be recognized, but have less than 200 followers. And, of course, the Award comes with just a few "rules", which are:

1) Post about your win on your blog.

This is the post -
So I got that part - ;))

2) Link back to the blogger who presented you with the award.

The blogger who presented me with the award is one of my followers -
BillieBee - BillieBee’s Blog

She always has such pretty eye candy on her blog -
I am so glad that she was awarded the Liebster Blog Award -
And that she thought of passing it along to me.
Thanks, again, BillieBee!

3) Copy and Paste the award to your blog.

Did that at the top -
And on my sidebar -
That should cover that part - ;))

4) Present the award to 5 blogs that have less than 200 followers that you think deserve to be recognized.

Aw, man!!
This is the hard part -
There are SO MANY deserving blogs out there -
How do I choose ONLY 5?

Deep breath - just do it - ;))

And just so you know -
I could have nominated a whole bunch more - ;))
But I had to limit it to 5 -

So - here goes -

In alphabetical order -

I nominate the following -

1. Julie Fukuda - My Quilter Diary - Japan

A Left-Handed Quilter who does all of her quilts BY HAND -
Absolutely beautiful work - you have to see it to believe it.

2. Katie M. - Katie and Quilts

A Right-Handed Friend of A Left-Handed Quilter -
A Queen of UFORIA - where UFOs Reside in Abundance - ;))
And a team member of The Leisurely Wife QAL.
With the same background on her blog as Julie - how cool is that?
She does amazing machine embroidery -
And is very active in the Quilts for Comfort.

3. Linda - Linda quilts

A Right-Handed Friend of A Left-Handed Quilter -
A Queen of UFORIA - where UFOs Reside in Abundance - ;))
She is always up to something and shows me HOW she does stuff - FUN!

A Left-Handed Quilter with a great sense of humor.
She is very quirky (her word) and very crafty -

5. Tracy - My World in a Stitch

  1. Awww, thanks for the award... I'm with you in the 'who to choose' department - there are so many great blogs out there - and just to let you know - I would 'reaward' you but that probably isn't how this is supposed to work :-) Of to check out all your awardees.....

  2. Girl you just keep cracking me up!! I LOVE THIS AWARD!! And coming from you it's even more special. Thanks bunches and gobs! ;o)
    What a nice surprise. And...just like you I'll pass this one on for sure (unlike many others).
    Thanks again for the honor.

  3. You are more than welcome. I love looking at your applique. Thanks for the shoutout!

  4. You always have such nice things to say. I am with you and Katie, who to choose. I will have to spend some time working on it tomorrow. The kids wore me out today. :-)

  5. *blushing coyly* Thank you so much for the award and all the lovely things you said. I'll be passing it on in the next couple of days.


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
