Sunshine Award!

I have had this lovely award from Belinda who is the cross stitch designer of Blue Ribbon designs which we all know are beautiful and irresistible, if your resolve is not to increase your stash then avoid looking at her designs because you will have to buy one, they are amazing!

So I feel greatly honoured to receive this from her,This is her blog and if you haven't visited her blog, you should make the time to visit! Blog: Samplings from a Blue Ribbon Girl: It is amazing, she is so creative.

I have stitched ‘Between the Lines’ and I made up the ‘Hugs and Kisses’ into the needle case, scissor case and fob as my blogoversary pressie last year.
Thank goodness this award doesn’t ask me to list things about myself otherwise I would have had to told you about????? Now that would be telling!
One thing I can say I am the sort of person who believes..........

"Carpe diem! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have. It is later than you think."~ Horace
I am told this award is for bloggers who inspire others with positivity and creativity. The rules for accepting the award are:

1. Put the logo on your blog or within your post.

2. Pass the award to 12 bloggers.

3. Link the nominees within your post.

4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog.

5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

It was very difficult to chose just twelve as I have 'met' such wonderful women through blogging who I think of as friends. You all are amazing and have given me a lift on my grey days and encouragement like no one can know. and now I have met some men too through the Magpie Tales writing blog.
So, here are my twelve nominees ..all of who are positive and creative with their blog posts...all of whom inspire me!

Julie
Barb
Clare
Connie
Claire
Michelle
Sue
Parsley
Sandra
Lindsay
Strawberry Jam Anne
Peggy
Anyone who reads my blog do pop along and visit these, they are wonderful women and write such inspiring blogs, with creative stitching, quilting and paintings.
When I think.....' Its a Wonderful  Life,'  it is these women for me who make it so!

Oh Chris - what an absolute wonderful thing to say - I think we all have to say the same about your blog which inspires me and brightens my day to read it. Whilst I grab the award with both hands, sadly my computer was virused once by a blog award so I don't tend to pop them on now but thank you so so much - much love Michelle x

Chris thankyou so much for thinking of me and I feel very honoured to have been chosen by you ,as you know I have only been in the magnificent world of bloggers for a few months, I love reading and being inspired (and enabled )to get yet more stash by you wonderful ladies out there. I am however a bit concerned about these blog award things so am joining Michelle in what she is doing. Take care we will speak again soon no doubt.
Hugs and thanks

Hi Chris, I just came over from Strawberry Jam Anne's blog and have enjoyed my visit. I have lived in the US for 34 years but it is always lovely to say hello to fellow Midlander, which is where I lived until I was 15 and still consider myself as such.

Claire said...
