Two awards!

Isn't it typical, you don't get an award for years and years, and then two come along at once! How great is that!
The first one was from Peg to celebrate my finishing the first quilt of her challenge. Thanks for that Peg. I'm working on the next one, honest! The second was the Arte Y Pico Award which originated here at the Arte Y Pico blog, and Jane gave me this award today .... I am honoured and flabbergasted, Jane!

The Rules are as follows....
1. Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogging community, no matter what language.

2. Each award has to have the name of the author and a link to his/her blog to be visited by everyone.

3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that presented her/him with the award.

4.The award winner and one who has given the prize have to show the link of Arte Y Pico blog so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5. To show these rules.

How do I pick 5 blogs from the many I visit? So much talent and so hard to choose! Oh, well here goes.

First has to be Tonya who has a wonderful blog full of colour and fabulous, inspirational photos, and has encouraged me to push my quilt making in different directions, by being more creative. Have a look at some of her tutorials, she's a great teacher.

Second is Peg who is another organiser, and has challenged so many people to get more finished quilts out into the world. I always respect people who are prepared to do something for others, and many quilters are selfless in sharing and encouraging.

Next is Jane. This may seem like nepotism as Jane gave the award to me, but Jane was the person who introduced me to the blogworld, and has given me practical help and encouragement along the way. She's also a great friend and superb quilter.

Then there's Wanda whose use of colour is just amazing! She also has lots of ideas and alternative possiblilities which are fun to drool over.

Last (but not least - there are loads of you out there who should be on my list, so don't be despondant if it's not you! You would have definitely been number six if I'd been allowed another!) is Lisajo because she is juggling her family responsibilities with her quilting, is very down to earth, and puts lovely photos of her gorgeous daughter on her blog for all to share!

If any of these people want to join in the awards, please do, but if it's too hard to decide, don't worry about it - just get out some fabric and stroke it instead!
