Award---I got one!!!

This is a blogging award that originated in Portugal and this is what it says about the blogs who are given this award....."This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are extremely charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award."
Goodness Sakes Alive!!! I can't get over winning an award!!!
Thank you Miss Lola very much!! We met via blogland and found out we live across the muddy James River from each other in God's Country none other than the beautiful Tidewater Virginia area where America was born and we haunt some of the same quilt shoppes. Be sure to check her blog she is always working on something fabulous and I firmly believe she has no UFO's...she finishes everything!! Wonderful recipes!!!
Enter some cleverly written text about them in their award...Clever I am not when it comes to writing but here goes....hard to pick just eight...some Lola nominated so I'll leave those off....
Robyn of Naptime is the New Happy Hour who happens to be my sweet baby girl...she has a wonderful sense of humor in telling about her days in her life in general and especially being a mother of three beautiful little girls under the age of three.
Autum of Creative Little Daisy the first blog I found when I started reading blogs. Autum is one very talented lady who recently became a Nana too to a beautiful little girl. Autum is always sewing, decorating, redoing something or making something fabulous. She has wonderful tutorials with good directions and pictures to make it easy to follow for good results.
Arlette of Polka Dot Pineapple born, raise and lives in Hawaii. Has wonderful tutorials for all sorts of great projects with lots of pictures for those like me who need to see the directions not just read them. Good recipes, too.
Connie of Sew Blessed in Amish Country This is Connie's new blog, I followed her old one too. She recently relocated to Amish Country and is a new quilter, longtime smocker. I found out about her many years ago through some a couple sewing groups I belonged to and she was moderator of two of them. She is not only gifted with the needle but also the camera.
Michele of Calico Daisy I love her sense of colors and the fabrics she uses. She has great projects! I can't wait to see what she is working on next.
Laurie of Button N Lace Yes I know, Lola nominated her too but I have to mention her too...I love her blog, her sense of humor, her projects, the goings on in her life. You must see her heirloom family quilts. Her working with laces and buttons and her wonderful pets.
Millie of Millie's Quilting Wonderful quilts. Beautiful colors. Lots of pictures. She has a Black Lab too!! She has a longarm quilting machine and I am so envious!!! Did I mention a professional Long Arm Quilter....very talented!!!
Linda of Behind My Red Door a lady with a wonderful talent for Prim Decorating. Love seeing what her newest project or decorating idea is.
I don't know what the deal is...I put spaces between paragraphs and it didn't work and so I did double spaces and that didn't work so....I give up and going to bed...nighty night!!!
