Sewing Annie and Awards

Do you see what I see....little bits of hair sticking out from behind the tissue????
Here she is Raggedy Old Annie ready for any sewing task. She has her sewing kit Handy with needle, thread and thimble ready for sewing, quilting or stitching. I can't believe I have my very own Annie, do you see what's on her dress, my initial, there will be no doubt who she belongs too. As Carole said, my heart feels warm and fussy with how kind and generous quilters are in blogland. I've formed live long friendships who I might have the opportunity to meet someday. Darlene and I have been swapping nine patches for a number of months now, we each will seek in little goodies as surprise gifts....teehee....it's so much fun. Well the biggest surprise came from Darlene, she went and ordered this Sewing Annie just for me. I'm so very touched by her generosity and thinking of me on my Birthday....see I can stretch my Birthday out for the whole month. Thank you Darlene....I will think of you while enjoying Sewing Annie sitting next to my computer. Oh one more thing....A little birdie told me Sewing Annie has a twin with a different initial on her dress....Hmmm who could that be....*vbs*
There are more kind and thoughtful bloggers out there. Gizmo has award me the "Spreader of Love" award. Thank you Gizmo for thinking of me. I feel very blessed with your friendship.
And then Tamara gave me the "You Make My Day" award. Thanks for making my day with this award.

The rules for the "You Make My Day" award, are to re-present it to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know through an email or posting to their blog so they can pass it on. You may get the award more than once, so if you do, consider yourself very loved! So pass it on!!!

There are so many to choose from I couldn't possibly name only 10. So if you read my blog regularly consider yourself on my list of people "Who Make my Day"!!! And so pass the love on!!!

Happy Stitching.
