I feel honored to have been tagged by Pat (http://gatherings100.blogspot.com/) for "The Thinking Blogger Award" http://www.thethinkingblog.com/2007/02/thinking-blogger-awards_11.html . Blogging has been such a wonderful addition to my life. Often those you love the most don't always understand the things that touch your heart the deepest. The idea of being able to unleash my thoughts,garden,my stitching was the most amazing release! I never imagined anyone would listen ~ it just felt good to get it out! Having made a connection with like minded people has just meant the world to me. I relish every comment left and quite often they come when I could really use an encouraging word. I love each and every one of you that take the time to "stop by" and most special of all my new connection's ~ dear Pat ~ who inspires me as she does so many other's. She spends her goodwill and kindness all over blog land and beyond! I will spare you another TAG Pat but you have to know you are at top of my list! #1.RissaPeaceRoot http://www.prettyimpressivestuff.com/index.html great stitch dictionary and free patterns! #2.The Cottage Nest http://thecottagenest.blogspot.com/ I have gotten alot of inspiration from this site and the links on it for my current kitchen redo. #3.http://cupcakeblog.com/ A cupcake blog by chockylit!
