An award.....


I received an award from Pearl at http://pearlssentimentaljourney.blogspot.com/ and I have been slow to show it cause I don't know how to link from just showing the name so I am doing it the hard way probably! Oh well, it is getting done and that is what counts. Pearl is a new blogging friend and I really enjoy the fact that she is always upbeat, her pictures that she posts are great fun and she wrote the kindest words about me on her blog when she gave me this award..Thanks so much Pearl. The award is the Arte Y Pico award and the link is http://arteypico.blogspot.com/ .

The rules for accepting this award are:

1* pick 5 blogs you consider deserving of this award for creativity, design, interesting material and a contribution to the blogging world.

2*Each person awarded has her name and a link to her blog to be visited

3* each award winner shows the award winner and shows the name and a link to the last blog that presented the award.

4*show the link to the Arte Y Pico blog

5* show the rules

OK! Got thru that part, now the five people....Marie from Z quilts....her art is beautiful and varied and she is really branching out and I love to see the variety of things that she creates...

Marva Plummer Bruno for Purple Paints...Anyone that can sketch their own foot and have it look like a foot is great in my book...she is good at alot of things and makes beautiful jewelry too.

Helen Bailey...she was my inspiration for starting a blog to begin with...I used to read hers and see the new techniques and think, "gee, I want to do that too" she donates a gzillion quilts to sick newborns and kids and makes beautiful fabric atc's and postcards..She is a great person and fabric artist

Jenna Louise from Quilt Crazy Gal....she is a new blogger but I get a real kick out of her...she is very bubbly and her fabric pieces are full of whimsy and imagination. I really love that!

Also Fannie from Imagine and Create......I love her neocolor quilts and she really puts a lot of heart and thought into what she makes. She has a great bear pattern that I gotta order too, darn it!

All of these artists blogs are listed on my sidebar...go visit em!
