Since posting my Trees on the Table pattern last fall I have had the pleasure of meeting some new friends in Blogland. One of those friends is Lea who lives in Japan. She made the trees quilt and sent me a picture, giving me the opportunity to meet her and see the beautiful work that she displays on her blog, Simple Pleasures. Lea has honored me with the You Make My Day Award. Ironically, her blog is one that I would have nominated! Thanks Lea!

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.

There are so many blogs that I love to read that I have trouble getting to all of them. Not for lack of interest! Here are a few special ones from the many that I enjoy. They make Blogland a pleasant place indeed! I hope you will drop by their blog and say hello!

Eileen at My Quilting Porch in Maryland

Annemiek at Carpe-Quiltem in Holland

Paula at A Latte Quilts in Texas

Kairle at Happy Valley Quilter in Utah

Gwen at Scrappy Angel in Germany

Michele at With Heart and Hand in Oregon

Pamina at Quilts on the Way in Germany

Thanks so much Marcie! I've enjoyed reading your blog too and the bonus is getting to see your patterns and admiring all those wonderful scrap quilts! I'll have to post my favorite blogs, but it will be difficult to choose 10 or less. Can I put yours on my list???? I may regardless!

Thank you for the award, Marcie!
The "trees on the table" is still on the top of my "to do" list!
I will try to share the award on my blog too. Take care.

Marcie...you sweet dear one! Now, you've doubly made my day! It's been a joy getting to know you through your blog and I am delighted to be in the list of such wonderful women! As you come up from the warm, I am heading north to the cold. I'll be blogging from my 91 years young dad's computer from my home town of Douglas, Alaska from Wednesday on. Oh by the way...lost blogger photos are just like missing socks...they all end up in some secret place where they're just sitting there laughing at us!

Marcie, you made MY day!!I am very pleased with the award especially since I'm a newbie in blogland (and very insecure about the things I make..)It's a good thing that I'm having a day off from work tomorrow,(it's almost 23.00 over here) so I can visit the other logs and choose my own award winning blogs.Such fun! Thanks a lot!

I love doing all the links. Most people choose different blogs, many I've never seen.

Lea said...

Oh.. Marcie... Thank you for a very nice complement about me. :-)
And Thank you for shareing your blogland friends!

Just wanted to say, "Hi neighbor!" to you and your family. I live in Mesa, AZ. I stop by your blog now and then to check out the great free patterns but haven't been here for a while. Hope you are enjoying your stay!

Hi Marcie, sorry to be missing so much lately, haven't been anywhere else either..just sewing alot!
If you see my comment would you drop me an email at Finn922000@yahoo.com and let me know if you have the orphan train book or not?
If you do, has anyone asked for it next? I've had a request from Terry at Quilt Nut, and altho I told her I'm not in charge of the book, I'm doing what I can to see that she gets on the 'invisible' list...LOL. Big hugs, hope you are have a blast in Arizonia, Finn
