Lots of Stuff

I have so much to post about, I'm not even sure where to begin! How about we start with this:
The Liebster Award
Sarah over at Sarah In Stitches was so kind as to award me with the Liebster award! I love her blog, she is the reason I'm going to be starting on the American Flag Quilt Sampler next year, and it just made my day to have her think of me for this award. Thank you, Sarah!

The rules of the Liebster Award are simple. You must thank the person who awarded it to you, paste the Liebster Award on your blog, pick 5 blogs with less than 200 followers (which is harder than it sounds!), and leave them each a comment on their blogs letting them know the good news! So without further ado and in no particular order, here are my five!

Chelle at The Next Best Stitch - she has done some beautiful work and has such a giving spirit and huge heart, which I know has been hurting of late, but it's clear her heart is always in her work.

Sharine at charbella stitching - I adore watching her HAED progress and everything I have seen on her blog just makes me smile!

Amanda from Samplers, Silks and Linens - her sampler pieces are stunning, and I have a soft spot for a fellow mom of a six year old teaching her daughter to follow in her crafty footsteps, just like I'm doing with mine!

Karen at My Stitchy Ramblings - Her Friday Hunks are sure addictive, but her stitching is always beautiful - I just love seeing all of her Round Robin progress!

Megan at Stitchings of an Army Wife - I have great admiration for the spouses of those who serve, and I am always looking forward to watching her progress on QS Clara!

Whew! That was not easy, and there are so many blogs I love so much. Thanks again, Sarah!

Let's see, what else...oh, it's International Hermit and Stitch Weekend! Yay! Tomorrow, I've already promised my daughter a Mommy/Daughter date to the mall, but after we get home from that, I plan on hermitting and stitching the rest of the weekend. We have the holiday coming up next week, but I'm not sure just how much stitching I'll get to do while we visit my in-laws, so I'd like to make progress on my new start next week before I go!

But before I can work on my new start, I have Tribal Penguin to finish up! I finished the white crosses and back stitching tonight. Just the rest of the black to go and then I'll be finished!
Almost Done!
This is a traveling pattern, so as soon as I am done with it I'll be making a post to find out who wants it next and depending on the interest, will likely do a drawing to find out who this will be going to next!

Whew, that's a long post after a long week at work with the process of resigning and starting to transition my responsibilities, plus a crazy Girl Scout meeting tonight. Bed is definitely calling my name!

Until next time!
