Hand Me the Envelope, Please.

...and the Leibster blog winner is my blog! At least as determined by Katie M :-) from Katie and Kwilts

Thank you Katie for the honor! I'm really glad you enjoy my blog :-)

For anyone who doesn't know about Liebster blog awards, this is how they work.

The Liebster is given to blogs that deserve to be recognized, but have less than 200 followers. And, of course, the Award comes with just a few "rules", which are:

1) Post about your win on your blog.

2) Link back to the blogger who presented you with the award.

3) Copy and Paste the award to your blog.

4) Present the award to 5 blogs that have less than 200 followers that you think deserve to be recognized.

5) Let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

So, now I get to give the Liebster blog award to five blogs. This is really hard. There are a lot of great blogs out there. When you add in that they must have less than 200 followers, it gets even harder. Since this is a quilting blog, I think I will keep it quilty in my awards.

My first award goes to Stephanie Newman . She is an amazingly talented quilter and has won many awards. She teaches classes and she also has been published in more than one quilting magazine. I am proud to call her a friend.

My second award goes to Theresa . She makes some gorgeous quilts, and she has a great conversational style.

My third award goes to Bonnie . She is on the Scrap Squad for Quiltmaker magazine, and she does lots of quilting! She also has an adorable granddaughter just a little older than my oldest granddaughter.

Fourth award goes to Deborah . She has some great patterns out there, and I just LOVE the Trinity knot one she designed. I've made one of those, and may make another someday.

My fifth and final award goes to Nann . She has all kinds of fun quilts on her blog!

I said I would limit it to quilt blogs and I did, but DH has a website for his scooter club, and he does a wonderful job with it. I will give him Honorable Mention for Sky Island Riders If you are ever traveling in Southern AZ, check out his Riding Southern Arizona series, no matter what vehicle you are driving in. He gives all kinds of ideas of places to see.

If I did all the links correctly, you can just click on the highlighted names to go to their blogs, and you may find a new favorite too!

WOW, some great blogs you awarded, Melanie. Loved your DH's site. I'm an avid ATV rider and will be heading out today for Chivo Falls in the Catalina Mountains. I hope more people will link over to his site and take a look at the pictures. Too many people don't understand that beauty that is in AZ!
