Tagged – The Thinking Blogger Award

Wow, I’ve been tagged by Nicole and Caroline with The Thinking Blogger Award. I’m so touched and honored that it’s very difficult for me to express exactly how I feel. I’m just here blogging and sharing – sort of doing my own thing! To think that I’ve inspired some, when so many have inspired me, is difficult to fathom. These ladies are so talented in their own right! Since I’ve been “tagged” by two incredible women then I get to “tag” ten that have inspired to me. Picking only ten is going to be so difficult because there are so many inspirational blogs that I visit on a regular basis.

Vicky – Vicky’s blog was one of the first blogs I discovered a year ago and she immediately reached out and offered her hand in friendship. She’s inspired me in so many ways and she’s one of the biggest reasons I started doing hand appliqué and have found a new passion. What’s best of Vicky – her warped sense of humor is just like mine!

Patti – What to say about Patti; one of the most organized and talented quilters I know. She helped Vicky push (read shove) me over the fence to get into hand appliqué. She’s always there when I have a question and even provided a list of tips and techniques when I needed it most.

Libby – One of the kindest souls I know in cyberspace. She as a whole inspires me everyday in everything she does and stands for!

Nadine – My good friend in Belgium. Our friendship started over a simple e-mail and has flourished in so many ways. She is such a treasure to me.

May-Britt – An incredibly talented woman who never ceases to amaze me. She can do anything! It would be so much fun to just sit and sew with her – I’d come away with so much knowledge.

Connie Lu – I’ve just gotten to know Connie Lu but my goodness she’s something! Her work is awesome and a day does not go by that I don’t visit her blog several times a day hoping she’ll share something with the blogging world.

Carole - I'm just getting to know this talented quilter but her applique and piece work is awesome.

Dawn - Have you seen Dawn's work? Oh my goodness she does the greatest stuff. Everything is always perfect.

Linda - I'm not sure that I've ever seen Linda do anything for herself. She does so much for those in need - making sure that many have quilts to keep them warm

Mary - Another quilter who consistently thinks of others and donates her quilts on a very regular basis.

Kristie - My daughter who inspires me everyday with her dedication to her husband and children. I wish that I could have been half the mom to her that she is to her boys - Seth and Eli.

Yes, I've tagged 11 incredible women with The Thinking Blogger Award!

I'm honored to know each and every one of you!

Wow, I'm honored to be included on your list! It's been fun knowing you - and I look forward to many more years of our shoving each other! LOL

(Hugs)

Carole said...

I'm stalking! Thank you for mentioning me. I'm truly honored! I've finally figured out how to keep up to date with blogs I enjoy reading without going around the ring. Blogarithm.com. I get an e-mail in the morning that tells me when a blog has been updated. Of course, being a stalker I checked yours without waiting for the e-mail! lol Happy quilting!

May Britt said...

I,m so honored and I'm blushing over the things you wrote about me. Thank you Darlene. You are such a inspiration for me too. And you have become a dear friend.

Dawn said...

Thank you so much Darlene, I don't think I deserve to be on there - my stuff is far from perfect! But I sure do ENJOY quilting! What is really fun now is I get to go visit all these other ladies you mentioned!

Thank you so much for saying that, but I had to learn it somewhere and that was from you. You are a great mom, woman, friend and a beautiful quilter and thanks for everything you have done for me in the past and what I know you will always continue to do for me in the future and thats be my mom.

Pam said...

You deserve it Darlene. I enjoy so much coming to your blog and you are always so kind with your replies.

I know some of the blogs you mentioned but I will check out the others.

Thank you so much for sharing these fabulous quilting sites with us! I am updating my "favorites" list today with some new additions! It is such a treat to be introduced to such talented individuals.
