A Busy Needle Indeed & An Award For Me

It seems I have been blessed with an award, the Liebster Blog award.


It was granted to me by Claudia over at Me, My BuBble and My Stitching . Thank you so much, Claudia! :)

Liebster is a German word, meaning favourite, dearest or beloved. The Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other, newer bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers, to spread the word and help the new(er)bies gain wider recognition..

The award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting
1. Choose five up-and-coming blogs (with fewer than 200 followers) to award the Liebster too.
2. Show thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award too with links to their sites.Leave comments on their blog so they know about the award.
4. Share five random facts about yourself that people don’t know

Here are the folks I'm nominating for the award:

1. Queen Stitcher

2. Peace, Love, and Stitching

3. The Crafty Basenji

4. Michelle's Stitchcraft Place

5. Social Sue

Now, for the 5 random facts about me:

1. I fly the New Jersey Devils colors, but I will watch pretty much anyone playing. With the exception of the Red Wings and the Rangers. I loathe both teams!

2. I have a habit where I get all of my running around, shopping and cleaning done by Thursday night. My time is too precious on the weekends to stand around a pharmacy or a Wal-Mart on a Saturday night.

3. I love to cook so much, I do it for stress release.

4. I have moved more times than most military families.

5. I have now reached critical mass in my stash and really only buy fabric and fibers when I need to. I purchase the occasional chart, but that is becoming increasingly rare now.

And now onto the stitching! :D

Managed to get some stitchy time in this weekend and have made progress on my Busy Needle project. I just love Little House Needleworks designs. They stitch up so quickly and they're always a ton of fun to do.

Designer: Diane Williams for Little House Needleworks

Fabric: 28 count raw natural Cashel linen by Zweigart

Fibers: Crescent Colours cotton floss in Bamboo, Blackbird, Sassy Brass, Weeping Willow, and Wild Berries.

Well, I best be off. Have a ton of stuff to do before work today. Hope everyone has a fantastic week! :)
