How About Some Whine to Celebrate?



Thanks to Cindy at Sew Fashionable for nominating me for this award!

However, I'm also feeling a little bit sheepish since I was whining about this at DiaryOfA SewingFanatic this morning. Oops! Sorry if I came across in the wrong way in the comments, Carolyn! I didn't mean to seem ungrateful. Hence, the title of this entry.

Anyway, now I need to do some work, as there are rules associated with this honor:

1. Copy the award to your site.
2. Link to the person from whom you received the award.
3. Nominate 7 other bloggers.
4. Link to those on your blog.
5. Leave a message on the blogs you nominate.

OK, here goes. This is not an all-inclusive list of blogs I enjoy and follow, that one would be much longer. I did try to focus on blogs that have not previously been mentioned. So I nominate:

A Little Sewing on the Side: I love the fact that Robin has a little commuter condo that has become a dedicated sewing studio!

21st Century Dressmakers: I found this blog on a comment board associated with a food article that appeared in the New York Times. Convoluted, but true. I like the monthly drawings!

Adventures from the Sewing Studio: Sharon's blog always makes me smile. I think a big part of it is her photo as a clown! What a fun hobby. I also enjoy her flashbacks to sewing "back in the day."

Assorted Notions: I love Christina's exuberance and youthful take on sewing fashion!

The Furry Mind--Musings at Cat Fur Studio: Barbara makes beautiful things, and I so relate to the name of her blog with 2 kitties of my own!

Sewing by the Seat of My Pants: Karen is another Cat Lady, and takes the prize in that category! She also has a real go-for-it attitude about sewing, as the name of her blog suggests.

The Slapdash Sewist: Trena is another go-for-it sewer. Remarkably productive and has a great time doing it. I also like her podcast.

That's seven, now off to complete Rule 5.

I'm going to try to be one of the followers of your blog, let's hope I can figure out how to do it, it's a first for me.
Cheers,
another Nancy
