Sunshine Award

We all Need some sunshine sometimes.

As I have a short while in between my Tablet Design lessons I need to accept the Sunshine award that Kay of Borderline quilters has so very kindly awarded to me.
Thank you so much Kay - I am honmoured. It really means a great deal to me. Kay and I are virtual friends and she lives in the most beauriful place.  I have visited her area some years ago - before I met Kay on the internet.  Its a wonderful way to meet hew friends and keep up with our many interests.

Now for how the Sunshine award works. There are a few rules and criteria to be followed.

You need to create a post with the following details:

Thank the person who nominated you for this Sunshine Award and link them back.
Then tell something about yourself.
Spread the joy by nominating your fellow bloggers and friends, its a way of appreciation.
Lastly but most important tell the bloggers about their nomination.

There you go, you're all done.

OK... I am a Wife,  Mother,  Grandmother  and quilter,  who used to really enjoy Patch working, but is now obsessed with my DMQ  on my Bernina 820.  I actually only started seriously quilting when I almost (it still not all sewn together - just all the rows to do) my Patchwork of the Crosses, as I couldn't bear to do more handwork on it with the amount of handworing already done on all the blocks)  Its going to be a challenge in itself when I finally get to it.
So I have done many classes with some wonderful quilters, by looking and learning 'how to' at videos of various top quilters and now the many online lessons I have had. ( At present doing another online class with Carla Barrett of Step on Pins. - which is why you haven't seen or heard from me in a while) I would love to nominate Kay - but she has the award already :)

As with Kay - I do love those feathers, and have many samples strewn round, of things I have done ...books that I draw in and now learning to design on the Tablet.

First......I would now like to nominate Kim at Sewnsewquilting I have learnt a lot by watching her video's and having her books. Its a great help too the she is such a great quilter.  She has been busy of late working in a quilt shop, but I see there are more quilts going up on her site.  More video's please Kim :)

Second... I would like to nominate Desley at Addicted to Quilts.  Desley is a beautiful Longarm quilter who is such an inspiration to me.  We met last year when she was over for a few days with her husband Paul.  and we all had a lovely day together.  Desley is a true artist!

Third.... I would like to nominate Judi Madsen of Green Fairy Quilts.  This young lady is inspiration indeed!  With four small children and a very supportive husband and partner, she make the most amazing things and her Longarm quilting is to die for.  Her work is exquisite, and her blog well worthy of a visit.

Fourth .... I would like to nominate Joanne of Threadhead  Joanne is a constant inspiration to many people She has the most amazing tutorials and a wide variety of accomplishment's.  We have become friends on the Internet and together with some two more of our Internet friends - we Skype and sew together as often as we are able to.  Its really fun .There are 2 in Canada, one in NZ and me here in Australia. Joanne also contributes to the Alzheimer's causes an has an amazing collection of quilts - large small and  mini. 

Fifth...... and lastly .....I would like to nominate Jenny's Doodling Needle.  I have learnt so much from just watching what Jenny does...she has such a variety of designs, I love to see what she is up to.  Again such an inspiring person!

The doesn't mean I have forgotten all you other lovely people out there... and you all do wonderful work and I am watching all I can,  I have such a thirst for knowledge, and am probably far too obsessed by all this craft work.
Off to do more of my lessons .
