One Lovely Blog Award

I was contemplating whether I should do a post this week or not.  I worked on a few projects this last weekend, but most of them I am not able to share yet.  Also, I was struggling with my shoulder pain and was feeling a bit cranky to be honest.  :)  I am doing better now AND I was given a reason to post.

One of my new quilt blogging buddies, Janice from Color, Creating, and Quilting has nominated me for the "One Lovely Blog Award"!  Thank you, Janice!  I have been seeing this pop up here and there and thought it was an excellent way to show appreciation for fellow bloggers. Janice and I have been planning to explore mini quilt making together and we had decided we were both going to make the same mini.  That is one of those projects I can't share yet because I want it to be quilted and finished before I share the photos.  :)  


The Rules:
*Thank the person who nominated you, and give a link to his/her blog.
*List the rules.
*Display the image of the award on your post.
*List seven facts about yourself.
*Nominate (up to) 15 bloggers for this award, and notify them to let them know you have nominated them.

Seven Facts about me:
1.  After living in Montana 95% of my life, in 2015 I finally packed up and moved to the amazing city of Portland and I am loving it!

2. I change my hair frequently.  Color, cut, and curls.  In my passport photo I have super long blonde hair with bangs and in my driver's license photo I have a short dark brown pixie cut.  Currently I have collar length brown (with a little grey) curls.  :)

3. I went to high school in a tiny, country town.  My graduating class was 28 people! 

4. I love supernatural story telling.  Books about werewolves, movies about ghosts, TV with vampires.  Give me a coven of witches over true crime stories any day.

5.  My first pattern design is in the testing process and I couldn't be more excited to get it out there.

6.  My favorite movie is, and always will be The Lost Boys.  

7.  Even my sweet puppy is named after a vampire.  Marius.  :)  Here he is:

My nominations:
Katrin at Puppilalla
Paige at Quilted Blooms

I don't think I doubled up on anyone.  :)

Now that I am thinking about it...I did have a small finish yesterday.  Something that I have been working on for quite some time.  A co-worker asked me to make a quilt out of Crown Royal bags for her.  Because everyone who drinks it, saves the bags.  :) The quilt is still in progress and I will share it eventually, but I did finish a coaster set out of the green bags.  And I made a cute little box to go with it.  I didn't follow a pattern for the box, I just kind of made it up and I think it turned out super cute.  If I do it again, I would add some embellishments I think, cute flower buttons or something.  I might do a tutorial on it if there is any interest.  So, let me know what you think about that.



So, not too much to share, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy.  I have a "nearly" finished quilt coming up soon and lots of other little things in the wings.

Oooo!  AND I finally started an Instagram account HERE, so make sure to follow me there too.

Happy Quilting Everyone!

  4. Neat job on the box and coasters. Those corner pockets would be a good place for stir sticks!

I love receiving comments from you. It makes my day. I try to respond to each and every comment via email. I also try to make sure I respond to the no-reply bloggers within the post, but that is a bit harder to keep track of.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
Happy Quilting!
