Last Day To Enter!

You have about 4 1/2 hours to finish your Christmas gift and get linked up - I'll probably do the give-away very late tonight, after midnight.  I'm impatient that way.  Can never wait til the next day.  I have another finish to show you, this one by Dolores from True Blue Canadian - a gorgeous tea cozy!

Love the button flower, Dolores!!

Leslie of LesQuilts has given me an award!   Isn't that sweet?  Thank you Leslie!

There are some rules with this -

The Versatile Blogger Award rules:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post
2. Tell 7 things about yourself that others might not know about you
3. Pass along the award to 15 newly discovered bloggers 
4. Contact these bloggers to let them know they’ve received the award

I have to tell 7 things about myself?  Yikes!  Let's's times like these you realize just how boring you are!

1.  I'm a neat freak.  If you came to my house, you would never believe it - but I'm the ONLY neat freak living here.  To keep my sanity [and everyone else's], I've learned to close my eyes to most of the mess.

2.  I'm a voracious reader.  I love reading even better than quilting, but I feel guilty for just sitting when I do.  That's why I love audio books, I can multi-task - no guilt.

3.  I love taking trips by myself.  The open road calls endlessly to me.  I should have been a truck driver.  I WANTED to be a race car driver, but girls weren't in it then.

4.  I talk to myself.  Back when I was actively teaching my boys, I called it a parent/teacher conference when I got caught.

5.  I have a terrible memory.  Probably why I talk to myself so much.  I would love to be the kind of friend who always remembers birthdays, anniversaries, and any important occasion.  I write things down, but then I forget where I put them.

6.  I hate shopping.  Except for fabric stores [that's a given].  Clothing, shoes, groceries, yuck.  Although I do like thrifting....the thrill of the hunt.

7.  I used to be a pessimist, but now I'm an optimist.  I love to look for the best possible in any situation.

So that's my boring 7 things, lol!  Wow that's hard.  But harder still is picking 15 [or five] blogs to honor.  I'll tell you what - click on my profile pic, scroll down, and you'll see all the blogs I follow - EVERY SINGLE ONE deserves this award!  When you want to surf some new blogs, check out that list.  I've been really bad, I haven't updated my blog roll on my sidebar in click the profile pic.  There is no way I could stop at 15 blogs to honor, and I know some folks don't like awards, so I'm going to pick all the blogs I follow.  I guess I should have put on my 7 things that I'm lazy.

But maybe you already knew that. *G*

I'll be back later with our April winner!

That is the cutest tea cozy!

And except for number 7 as I've always been an optimist, your list sounded like something right out of my own story:)
I love number 5. My daughter is constantly getting on me for forgetting where I have written things down at :D :D

I love #4, I wonder what my excuse would be if I got caught talking to myself.

I know what you mean about the open road! We were watching drag racing today and Shirley Muldowny was the 'starter'. What a pioneer!

Tanya said...

Well, I could tell you were a neat freak by the glimpse of your sewing room. What's your favorite book? I'm looking for something to read.
