At years end Linda of Danvillegirl Sewing Diary presented me with two awards Sugar Doll and the Honest Scrap Awards. At the beginning of the year Trudy of Sewing with Trudy gave me other Honest Scrap Award. Thank you very much, ladies. So thoughtful of you.

Today I'm acknowledging and accepting both awards by following the guidelines:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Tell ten interesting things about yourself (oh, boy-- don't have much to tell).
3. Nominate seven other creative, inspiring bloggers .

Interesting things - That's hard. I may have to repeat things already told. Here goes. Oh, yeah...., I have some new stuff....,

1. Still working for the University of Illinois during this time of cutbacks and layoffs. Twenty-six years and counting. Thank God.

2. Proud Mama..., My DD is finishing up her Business degree and will be a Voters' Administrator for the upcoming election.

3. Officially became a member of the Haute Couture Club of Chicago by invitation. Thanks to M. Moser. She found me on Patti Palmer's website.

4. As a kid I wanted to be some kind of scientist always conducting experiments.

5. I love my sisters and enjoy their company. We are tighter than Dick's hat band.

6. I am the epitome of a Daddy's girl. I miss him ...,

7. Is making efforts to purchase a home.

8. Wants to go on an Alaskan cruise.

9. Since ten, I have been fascinated with making things: sewing crocheting, knitting, drawing, etc.

10. Used to play the flute.

Nomination of a few bloggers I follow. This is my least favorite part of the nomination process. There are hundreds of creative bloggers that I'd like to nominate. It's extremely hard to just name a few. In the true spirit of the cyberspace "award" eventually all of my fellow creative, sewing bloggers will be nominated. So here are a few favorites:

Summerset's Pins and Needles
Tany's Couture et Tricot
Marj's FiberArt Afloat
Erica's Erica B.'s DIY Style
Carolyn's Diary of a Sewing Fanatic
Lindsay's Lindsay T Sews
Cidell's Miss celie's Pants

Happy Sewing!


BTW- I finished one of DD's career wardrobes. One dress to complete for the second one. Pictures and reviews coming soon.


  1. Congratulations! I am looking forward to see all the beautiful work you do. Congrats on your daughter's achievement.

  2. Hey lady, congrats on your blog award! I play flute, too! :)
