Thank you and thank you ...

... I want to say thank you to two people today.
The first thanks go to Ann, from enbellefrance.  A few weeks ago she celebrated her first blogiversary, and to celebrate sent gifts to 3 of her bloggy friends.  I was one of the three, and this is what I received.  The picture is not brilliant, but she sent a flower-maker, some fabrics and some chocolate.  I haven't played with the flower-maker yet, but I will soon as I have plans for the flowers.  I can't show you the chocolate, cos I've eaten it!  Everything was wrapped beautifully in tissue paper and tied with ribbon, but I was too impatient to take a photo before I opened it.  Thanks so much Ann, I loved my present.

The other person I want to thank is Mrs Pickles, from Mrs.Pickles Garden.  The other day she very kindly awarded me with the Versatile Blogger Award.  According to the rules, I have to tell you seven random things about myself, so here goes:
  • I have a warped sense of humour.  I know you'd never have guessed that, would you?
  • I am a control freak, which is why I can't do scrappy quilts.
  • I am not good at art.  In fact, according to Mr Fixit, I can't draw a straight line even with a ruler!
  • I am tall - about 5'10".
  • I love computers and spend far too much time on mine.
  • As a kid I lived in Australia for a while.
  • I love chocolate and hate housework.
Now, according to the rules of this award, I am supposed to pass this on to other bloggers, but I am sorry, I am not going to be doing this.  How can I chose just 15 and give them the award?  I want to give one to everyone who visits me regularly, so please all consider yourself awarded.  Thank you so much though Mrs Pickles for including me in your award nominations.

Come back tomorrow if you would like an update on the Festive Mystery quilt that we are making during the Christmas Quiltalong.

  5. You deserve an award Sue for putting up with the rest of us! You CAN do a scrappy quilt. It is just organized chaos!
