A Liebster Award

By now many of you have seen this award. In case you haven't, the word Liebster means favorite in German. This has started as a way for bloggers to help each other spread the word about cross stitch blogs that have less than 200 followers. In the beginning , my most constant follower was my dear daughter, Laurie. Now that I have grown a bit, it is so nice to have contact with people to share my passion for cross stitching.

I was given this award by three wonderful bloggers. First, Beth of "Garden Grumbles and Cross Stitch Fumbles" , second, Chris of "Tot Hill Farm Stitches" and last but not least, Natasha of "A Stitcher's Ramblings. I have loved reading the blogs of these great ladies! Thank you so much! Now it's my turn to pass this award on to 5 worthy blogs.

1. The Blue Star Stitcher. I love her great smalls and the clever way she displays them.

2. Mary at "Stitches and More" Mary does lovely work. We share an appreciation for Sheepish Designs. She has stitched an amazing Santa!

3. Amy at "Sew Amy" While it is not cross stitch, Amy got my immediate attention with her amazing Halloween quilt!

4. Laura at "Stitching My Life Away" There are so many great designs . I was especially drawn to the French Country Bunny.

5. Michele at" Just another Stitching Blog" The last time I looked Michele had exactly 200 followers but her blog was one of the first ones I followed. Michele is a fellow Seattle area stitcher. When I e-mailed her for advice on where to find supplies, she responded very quickly. Thanks , Michele

  2. Hi Barb! I'm just finally getting caught up on my favorite blogs. I just want to tell you how beautiful your samplers are. I'm happy to hear you had a great vacation, yet it's always wonderful to get home. I'm hoping your weather will be warming up. It sounds like you had a great Easter. Take care.
