A lovely thing happened to me this week, Val of Pink Please kindly nominated me for the Liebster Award. Val's blog is a wonderful read....she had me at hello....I read her first post and have been reading ever since. Be sure to stop by, if you have a moment...she makes the most adorable pin cushions you can imagine.
The Liebster Award recognizes smaller blogs with followers of less than 300.
Here are the rules of the Liebster Award (I am quoting Val now):
Tell your readers who tagged or nominated you.
Add a link to their blog.
Pay it forward!!! Award 3-5 bloggers who you think deserve this award.
Inform them and post directions to your blog. I am still quoting Val here because I couldn't say it any better....Please don't tag people who already have 300 followers. The goal of this award is to get more publicity to blogs that are good, but not so well known (yet!!!)
Choosing my favorite blogs under 300 was not all that easy. I asked myself two questions:
What draws me to a blog?
What keeps me coming back?
The first thing would probably be a picture, of one their quilts...I'm attracted to innovative use of colour and design. A balance of photos and writing is important to me. Too much print and no photos and....I'm gone.
There is something more.....I feel a connection with the following blogs because in them, I find humour, sharing of ideas, inspiration and encouragement. The following bloggers take time to make contact with people that comment....their blogs are warm and welcoming. I hope all of you will take a moment to visit with them., I do almost every morning.
