Spread the Liebe!

So, I logged on today to find that Leila from Where The Orchids Grow had selected me for a Liebster Award! Yay!

I’d like to thank my agent, my amazing director, my cutting mat, my rotary cutter, my sewing machine, and of course my stash …. I couldn’t have done it without you …

So, what’s a Liebster Award anyway? 


Well, you know how sometimes you visit a blog and it’s like some towering skyscraper of brilliance, with twenty gazillion followers … and you think … “Whoa! I am not worthy”?

The idea behind the Liebster is that it is awarded to us smaller “thatched cottage” type blogs, with 300 or fewer followers (try saying that when you’ve had a sherbet or two!) 

The condition of the award is that you pay it forward and spread the Liebe (that’s love … keep up) and nominate another three  … and so on … to infinity and beyond …

But before I open the envelope please make sure you visit my nominator: the lovely Leila at Where The Orchids Grow - we were in a swap together and she’s just so talented, with a wonderful eye for line, shape and colour … Yum.

So, without further ado …


… and in no particular order … here are three of my favourite little blogs - little only in number of followers may I say, not in talent, and boy, was it hard to choose.  I haven’t stuck to strictly quilty bloggers either - get out there and mingle!

The Coffee Lady is one of my favourite ‘snort tea through my nose’ blogs  … Damn she is witty, and oh so dry, and chronicles everything from crafting disasters and triumphs to musings on language, everyday family life, society and cake bribery. I always get excited when there’s that little (1) in my Reader.

Dawbis at Lovely Paper Blog has just, I mean like just, had a beautiful baby, Sofia Noémi.  Her paper craft is also beautiful  beyond words.   I love how she chronicles her creative process and how it all ends up so fresh and new and strikingly original.

Caroline at Toffle Craft - Now, Caroline is a shiny new blogger who works full time as a PhD student.  She’s working on her first quilt, and she can sew in straight lines, which is more than I could do when I started blogging!  So hop on over and show some support … it’s lovely to be there at the start of something … I tell you … this is one lady to watch!

Now you winners - go spread the love - and readers … go introduce yourselves!
