Today I received the Sisterhood award from Mary. What a lovely lady she is. I have enjoyed seeing the beautifully tempting Dutch Treat blocks she is currently making as well as her other beautiful work. Also reading the most interesting stories and pictures through the years of her family. Thank you so much Mary for this honour.

In order to officially be the recipient of this prestigious award, I need to do a few things first --
1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate 10 or fewer blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received your award.

Choosing who to pass this honour to is so difficult since there are so many I like to visit. However, here are 6 in NO PARTICULAR ORDER....

1) Is Rosa who's delightful wit always makes me smile or laugh and lifts my spirits.
2) Is Cyn who has just got into blogging after much arm twisting :)) you have to go say hi!
3) Is Ranette because she is my twin... well not really a twin but we both share the same birthday :-D and I love her work. She does the most beautiful work and I love all she does.
4) Is Lettie Lettie's choice of colours and fabrics reflect the beautiful place where she lives and is so refreshing and dreamy. She also takes a lot of trouble to provide tutorials which are always so clear, to make some of her really cute designs. Beautiful eye candy!
5) Is Annelies. A delightful lady from the Netherlands who hosts the International Siggy swap. She makes the most beautiful quilts also and apart from sewing, all by hand, her Dear Jane, she is also making the Nearly Insane quilt and her blocks are awesome.
6) Is Mary Ann a lovely lady from Canada who lives in Denmark. Mary Ann does the most exquisite stitchery and has completed her Dear Jane quilt top. She is also making a Kaffe Fassett one which I'm sure will be exquisite.

Thank you ladies for keeping my spirits up and for all your inspiration... and to all who I haven't mentioned... I'll get you next time ;))))
