Sharing The Love

Carolynn over at Artystuff has generously given me the Liebster Blog Award which recognizes blogs with under 200 followers.  Carolynn is a fellow Canadian who creates beautiful art quilts and writes about the natural world that inspires her.  She's only been blogging a short time and is already raking in the awards!

There are rules to follow when given this award:
1.  Thank the giver and link back to their blog.
2.  Reveal your 5 top picks and leave a comment on their blog.
3.  Copy and paste the award onto your blog.
4.  Have faith that your followers will spread the love too.

The actual origins of this award are a mystery it would seem but it's surely German.  Having been given it I am happy to pass the love along and share it with others.  So here are my nominations and you'll find I can't count!

Art Journey belongs to another Penny.  This Penny is committed to the art of punchneedle and designs wonderfully organic and tactile pieces. 

Chris over at Textile Butterfly sips tea on Tuesdays and creates beautiful stitched works inspired mostly by ancient tribal symbols.

Sweetpea is Christi's blog where you will find 'scribblings' of a stitcher of stories, a beader and a gardener...oh, and she loves her 'dawg'.

Stitching Life is Karen's blog where she shares her love of stitch and her respect for tradition in cloth.

Deanna's blog is Eclectic Meanderings which is the perfect title for Deanna who makes art using an eclectic collection of materials and techniques.

Kaite's at KaiteYarngarden is a generous soul who creates not for herself but always for those in dire straits or lucky friends.


  1. Richly deserved Penny, I think your blog is beautiful, both the look of it and the content. Happy you - hope the Rusty Pups get an extra biscuit each in celebration!

  2. Congratulations, Penny - Your blog is a fun visit, always, and your work a delight. -sus
