Versatile Blogger

Look what I found in my mailbox the other day! (Yes it takes me awhile to get to things these days!). A Versatile Blogger award. Thank you so much Pat! Please go check out Pat's blog - Quilts and Other Hobbies - you won't be sorry you did! I've followed Pat's blog for a long, long time and always enjoy what is going on in her studio!

I"m not so sure I"m deserving of this lately, but it did make me happy! Versatile? Or is it just plain craziness on my part! I think the hardest part is thinking of 7 things to share with you about me. Why is it so fun to read things about other people, but when it is my turn I come up blank? OK, so here goes - hope you don't fall asleep!

1. I was born a cheesehead (born in Wisconsin)

2. I once brought a puppy home from camp without telling my parents!

3. In my high school and college years I was a dancer want a be. (That is me front right with long braids)

4. I"ve only lived in one state all my life. (I was born in WI, but lived in IL)

5. I actually stepped over the Mississippi River at its beginning.

6. I saw the Berlin Wall (while it was still up) and went through Checkpoint Charlie.

7. I have 3 daughters, a brunette, a blonde and a redhead (all natural). I also have 1 son who's hair color is a touch of brown, blonde and red.

Now, on to the new awardees (it is so hard to pick!):

But what makes all of these 6 blogs wonderful, are the wonderful, sweet, friendly ladies behind each - I wish I could meet them all in real life!

1. KarenDianne at LeeHaven - She is always working on something gorgeous.
2. Anita at Hayestackhayes - I always find her dolls just wonderful! And her projects fun.
3. Taryn at Reproduction and Antique Quilt Lover - One word describes this blog - DROOL
4. Janet at Quiltsalott - OK, another big DROOL
5. JulieQ at JulieKQuilts - I always love what she is working on!
6. Linda at the Quilted Pineapple - Another fun blog to see what is going on!
