I'm a winner!

The fabulous Sallie in Oh my goodness, she turned those Clovers into trousers, awarded me two blog awards!


I don't know much about them, but Sallie answered some questions for the Sunshine Award, so I will do that.

favorite color:  Dang, already stumped. I like brights.

favorite animal: My dog/best assistant ever

favorite number: 4:00 - time to come home!

favorite non-alcoholic drink: Probably water, who has a favorite nonalcoholic drink?

facebook or twitter: both

my passion: my sewing and quilting!

getting or giving presents: both

favorite pattern: Oh dang, stumped again. Let's narrow it down to separates. :-)

favorite day of the week: Friday of course!

favorite flower: Lilacs

And now, my five deserving blogs (hehe, I don't know what you deserve because I don't know much about these awards.) My five blogs I like a lot are:

Sewing on Pins - Heather was one of my first followers, and I have been copying her ever since. She also makes cool lace art and probably wants no sunshine at all so she can wear her fabulous wool coat.

Julia Bobbin - Because I'm watching Robin sing Sandcastles in the Sand on How I Met Your Mother reruns right this very second and she posted a great Robin Scherbatsky dress today.

Lladybird - Everything she does is just bad ass. That's all I can say. Bad ass.

A Few Threads Loose - Ooh La La Pin Up Sew Along, if you haven't checked it out yet you should. The Garters I am seeing are awesome, and they are just starting on the bra. Plus, Anna created the pattern. Support small business people!

Sew Much, Sew Stylin', Sew Fast - Sandi makes all the new patterns you are dying to try and kills it every time. She is also a teacher like me and somehow manages her children and turning out products regularly. Where does she find the time? She will also give you the heads up when there is a good sale.

Sigrid - Sigrid makes amazing bras. Like beautiful Victoria's Secret looking stuff, but even better because your underwire won't pop out after three wears because her work is quality. She also did a whole how to on bras. Love it!

OK, Sallie gave six, so I gave six. If any of you have received these awards recently you are just double awesome. 

I've got lace in the washer....I feel a shirt coming on. More on that soon.


  1. Congratulations on the award - it certainly does brighten up the sewing day!!! So, a lace shirt in the makings, looking forward to seeing it.....

  2. Aw! Thanks for the award, lady! :)

  3. Congrats, and thanks for the award! I'll write up a post on it when I'm feeling the effects of my birthday party a little less. :D

  4. Thanks for the award, you're such a sweetheart!
