Make My Day Award

I was extremely excited this morning to receive the news from Pamina that she had nominated me for the You Make My Day Award. Thank you so much Pamina. It will be two weeks tomorrow since I started this blog so I was absolutley gob-smacked! I have had lots of lovely comments from bloggers as far afield as Canada, the U.S, Norway, New Zealand, France, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Reunion Island and of course Australia.

The rules for this award say to choose up to 10 people whose blog brings you happiness & inspiration and makes you feel happy about Blogland. Let them know by posting a note on their blog so they can pass it on.

After much deliberation - there are so many wonderful blogs - I have chosen to honour:

1. Peg - Happy in Quilting
2. Rose - Threadbare
3. Donna - Chookyblue
4. Corry - Dutch Blue
5. Leanne - The Stitching Room
6. Jodie - Ric Rac
7. Wendy - Snippets of a Quilter
8. Tracey - Ozcountryquiltingmum

Lots of people have been making nice comments about dear little Oliver. Here's where he was last night when I was blogging. He loves to cuddle up with dollies and bears - plenty to choose from in our house. The black thing near his head is Raggedy Annie's foot!

Isn't he cute! Love how his ear is 'squashed' in this shot. Yesterday I found this blog of a cat from Hobart called Pablo. If you are a cat lover you will enjoy it.


  1. Well done You!

    You're an inspiration to me too! We live 2 minutes apart, see or talk to each other almost daily (and often more than once), I get to come and 'play' with all your quilts, dolls, bears, stitcheries etc... ...and yet, I'm still at the 'putey several times a day (school holidays) checking out your beautiful blog.
    You have a gift my beatiful sister - not only in your talent at creating beautiful handcraft, but also in imparting the passion to others!
    Just in case you don't know - or have forgotten - I love you and am very proud of you! Kathy xxx

  2. WOW...WOW...and even double WOW....Christine thank you so much....I am not sure what to say....I just love your blog it is one of the first ones I go to each day...I have found you totally inspiring, I find blogland totally inspiring, there are so many negative people around and I trully hate that, blogland is only made up of positives...thankyou I feel so humble to think I have inspired someone...
