Who? Me?!

Stitchers are such a warm supportive group! I have been nominated by stitching blogger Kim for a Kreativ Blogger Award, and am humbly honored.

We learn so much from each others' blogs, and gain valuable insight, inspiration and motivation every day! I feel especially privileged to have made your acquaintance through this blog.

Here, in no particular order, are my 5 nominees:

A Sampler of Stitches

Garden of Stitches

Coastal Stitching

Tangled Threads

Santa Stitches

Thank you, gals, for keeping me in stitches!
