Greetings from Blogland

This photo is of my favorite garden flower, the Gloriosa Daisy. It is a biennial flower derived from the Black Eyed Susan. It grows abundantly from seed once planted.

One of the things I love about blogging is being able to travel the world while staying at home. But what I love most is the kind and supportive people I've met since I started my blog in May. Today I received a note from Jackie that she had given my blog this award:

I have to tell you I was just thrilled. I love Jackie's blog. It is one of my first stops. Her creativity through her fiber arts and views of the natural world are so inspiring to me. I think she would be surprised how many friends I have told about her blog. So thank you Jackie!

This award comes with a few rules:
1. The winner can put the logo on his/her blog
2. Link to the person you received your award from
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs for an award
4. Put links to those blogs on yours
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the people you have nominated.

Over the next few posts I'll be sharing my favorite blogs with you.

My first award goes to Patsy's Middle of No Where. Not only is her blog fun to explore but she was the catalyst that led me to start my own blog. Patsy has a beautiful quilt retreat in Southwestern Wisconsin. If you ever get a chance to stay at her retreat you will not be sorry. The food is wonderful and the workspace has everything a quilter needs. On her blog you will find photos of her weekend guests and their work. Patsy loves to shop at thrift stores and she shares her finds. It's so fun to visit her retreat and see where her purchases end up. Here's a link to an earlier post I did about Patsy's ability to breathe new life into found objects.

Another one of my favorite blogs is Robyn's Art Propelled. Her amazing spirit is evident in her writing. Her wood carvings and totems are beautiful. How she comes up with such wonderful ideas is beyond me. Take time to explore her work. There is much to see.
