Some Lovely Blogs

My dear bloggy friend Sarah nominated my blog for a Lovely Blog Award.  It was so nice of her to think of me.  That's just how Sarah is, always thinking of others.  She keeps very busy, it makes my head spin how busy she is, making quilts with her quilt ministry.  Every spring she heads up Hands 2 Help on her blog and lucky me she has chosen my Quilty Hugs for Happy Chemo as one of her charities for the last few years.  If you haven't met Sarah yet make sure you pay her a visit.  It's so worth the trip.
 As part of the Lovely Blog award I'm to share seven things about myself.   So here goes.
1: I have a wonderful grandma I love dearly.  We have enjoyed going to lunch together since I was little.
 I feel so blessed to still be able to enjoy her company.
2. I have a very creative mom and sisters.  My mom encouraged all of us to develop our talents.  She was an excellent example.  She sews, cooks, sculpts, and paints. You can see some of her work here. I have a sister who does wedding photography, one that is big in the craft industry and even designs fabric, and one that is an excellent cook.  
 3. I have a wonderful hubby, three sons, and a darling daughter.
4. I enjoy reading especially historical fiction.
5. I love to try new recipes.  Allrecipes is one of my favorite places to visit and try new things.  Though I also get recipes from my sisters and friends.
 6. My favorite vacations are to the beach or camping.
7. I'm a early bird.  I love the quiet morning brings.  Getting up before everyone else, I can get so much done.  But don't ask me to stay up.  I'm horrid at that.  Most nights you'll find me in bed by nine enjoying a good book until I've read the same line three or four times.  Then it's lights out and I'm gone as soon as my head hits the pillow.
The Lovely Blogs I would like to nominate are:
Ruthie Quilts- Ruthie is my dear friend I met her a few years ago when she took a class from me.  Now I get together with her and a group of friends at least twice a month.  She also helps me with my over productive apricot tree.  I think her jam is better than mine.  But isn't everything always better when someone else makes it?
Quilty Folk- Audrey's blog is place I visit often for inspiration.  I love her folksy take on quilting.
Needled Mom- I've followed Mary's blog since I stared blogging.  Her love of family and quilting inspires me.
Crafts and Stuff- Hetty's hexis are amazing and I love all the pretty flowers she shares.  Oh that I had her green thumb.

  2. Thank you Emily. You inspire me in every way. I always enjoy your posts about your grandma. I had such a long and close relationship with mine too and miss her dearly.

    Like you, my sleeping pill is my book. I tend to fall asleep with the book still in an upright position. It wakes me up when it falls over! lol

  4. Thanks for your kind words, Emily! I'm blushing! Happy Chemo is such a worthy cause, and so many folks want to send their quilts there - it's my pleasure to help connect you all up! And I didn't know you liked historical fiction - have you read Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series?

    there are quiet a few similarities between you and I, how interesting. Are we all the same, well at least the ones that sew?
