And the award goes to....

First off, thank you to Heather at Creative Confessions for giving me a Liebster Award! I'm blushing.

Never heard of Liebster Awards? Well, here you go, cut straight from the source or my award:

The Liebster Award (German for favourite) is for bloggers with 200 followers or less. As a recipient of the award, you have the chance to thank and link back to the blogger who gave it to you as well as pass it along to five other deserving blogs.
The Liebster Conventions says that:
1. Thank your award presenter on your blog and link back to him/ her
2. Copy and paste the award to your blog
3.  Present the Liebster Award to 5 blogs that you think deserve to be recognized
4.  Let them know by leaving a comment on their blog
5. Have faith that your follower will spread the love too

It's my turn to pass this along. And so, without further ado, I would like to highlight these 5 lovelies:

This lady quilts so many donation quilts, she leaves me exhausted just reading about it! She teaches school, quilts for herself and for charity, and she's raised some great kids. Pretty amazing.

This one's a runner- and a funny one, too! I read her blog and think, "If she were my neighbor, we'd be great friends (or she'd build a big fence). She helps out with her local Girls on the Run, a group that promotes running and healthy lifestyles for girls, and she has ran some of my bucket list races already. You might get tired reading her blog, too!

Another quilter, and a professor. She's smart. I found this busy lady through Bonnie Hunter's Mystery quilts, and while mine always end up half-done and bagged up, she actually finishes hers. Plus, she's been working on a really cool hexie quilt, which I envy, since it has a well-planned design and mine is simply random diamonds. See a trend? Similar tastes, yet she's my opposite- focused and a project finisher.

Another active gal, she sews, quilts, gets outdoors, and has the cutest golden retrievers! She sure keeps busy, and is very organized (or at least comes off as such, which is more than I can say!). I love her blog because it's so often full of pictures of flowers, crafts, and dogs!

I can't remember what brought me to her blog, but I'm so glad it did- this girl is truly inspiring. She's made decisions I can't easily imagine, and maintains such a positive attitude. If she didn't live in Canada, I'd want to train with her- we have similar running goals this year.

So, there you have it. 5 women who ROCK. Some quilters, some runners, but all-around strong gals. 

I wish they all lived closer- they could join me a t a 5k Run/walk today- my first time ever being at one as a volunteer!


  1. Thanks for the award, you are too kind :) and good job on your race! I started walking this week with the hopes of helping my migraines. So far it hasn't helped, but I'm not giving up just yet.

  2. WOW!!! This is so nice - you are the BEST! I could definitely learn a thing or two from you about sewing - I am a complete failure in that area. Thanks for the other blogs to check out as well!
