I was recently awarded the Premio al esfuerzo personal blog award and the Brilliant Weblog Premio Award 2008 (again) by Summerset. I so appreciate both of these awards. I know I shouldn't care about who comes and reads my ramblings but it is heartwarming to know that others check in on a daily basis to see what I'm up to...and I truly appreciate each and every one of those visits.
So first let me thank all of the people who visit my blog, stop and write a comment or send me an email or phone me to tell me what I did wrong (Marji! *LOL*) or recommend my blog to someone else to read. I have met some amazing women through the internet and developed some really good friendships all because of our shared passion for and mutual love of stitching something together.
When Jamie awarded me the Brilliant Weblog Premio Award a couple of weeks ago, I fudged it by acknowledging it but not following the rest of the rules. I guess now I have to ante up! *smile* I just hate naming only five blogs because I don't want anyone to feel as if their blog isn't special to me...so I decided to nominate the five that I go to each and every day for inspiration. Now of those, Summerset, Marji and Cidell have already been nominated...so my next visits are to the women listed below, and I nominate them for both awards:
1. Lower your pressor foot
Kristy is pregnant and sewing the most amazing maternity wardrobe. Every day I surf in to see if something new is up! If you haven't been to her site, please go, she is AMAZING!
2. Sewing in the City
I love her vintage styling and that she works in NYC like me!
3. Sheila Crochetz, Threadz & Knitz
Okay besides the great music that plays on her blog, I love how she is taking a wonderful new adventure with sewing...taught herself to knit and crochetz like you wouldn't believe!
4. Couture et Tricot
Because I want to sew like Tany when I grow up! *smile* Seriously, Tany can sew and makes the most amazing garments. I always learn something new when I go to her site!
5. Lindsey T Sews Again
Lindsey does the best posts about our beloved NYC garment district complete with pictures that makes everyone want to shop in NYC! Plus I am loving the journey she's taking with her renewed interest in sewing!
6. Life Happens be Positive
I love Toy's adventure with knits...and colors...and just general enthusiasm!
Please know that if I didn't mention your blog it doesn't mean that I'm not reading and enjoying it. And some of y'all just need to post more often so that I can get an afternoon fix, if you know what I mean! *smile*
Here are the rules.
Rules 4 and 5 apply only to the second award: The rules for these award - prize are as follows:
1. Select 6 bloggers to whom you would like to give this award- prize (definitely not easy to choose - only 6)

3. Paste these rules on your blog;

And thanks again Summerset and Jamie for the nominations...it means so much to be acknowledged by your peers!
