On My Way To Bed ...!

Yep, that's where I'm heading after a busy weekend! I had intended to post today to tell you all about my participation in the Girls Getaway Weekend, but I'm a tired little teddy bear and can't keep my eyes open. So ... just a quick little post (really, Chookyblue, I promise!) to say a big THANK YOU to the gorgeous Kerryanne of Shabby Art Boutique for giving me a couple of awards - the Sisterhood Award and the Top Ten Fave Blogs Award.

Isn't this one sweet - I loooooooove ladybirds!! (even if it is 'THAT" colour!!)

OK, now I'm supposed to pass these on, but I know that some of the bloggers who I would put in these categories have already received these awards or aren't really into them ... I don't care! Tee! Hee! Hee! I'm going to list 'em and if they'd like to pass them on, that's cool, if not, that's cool too - it's just my chance to acknowledge some of the wonderful, unique, quirky, brave, creative, fun ... etc, etc, etc ... women who I've met since taking up residence in blogland. Thank you to each and every one of you - those in this list and those who aren't - I'm only supposed to list 10, after all, not ALL of the blogs I pop into! Here goes ...

1. The wonderful Kerryanne - of course! - who inspired me to start a blog and has become a fabulous friend.
2. Lilly Linda - about the second blogging buddy I made who has also become a great 'real life' friend.
3. May Britt - who was a good blogging buddy before we decided to co-host our 'little' challenge and has become an even better one.
4. Peg - Super Stitcher extraordinaire! Peg just amazes me with how much stitching she gets done and how many projects she FINISHES! I'm really good at STARTING! :0)
5. Stina - another lovely lady who has become a good friend as we chat back and forth, learning more about each other and each other's countries. Did you know they don't really grow pumpkins in Sweden?!?!
6. Rosey - I've only been popping into Rosey's blog for a little while, but love her sense of humour and quirky take on life.
7. Chookyblue - again, a 'real life' friend now as well as blogging buddy - great lady to share a drink, a great view and a fabric shop fix with! :0)
8. Julia - Another international blogging buddy with a fun sense of humour and an emerging talent for designing.
9. Judy S - In the process of encouraging each other to stitch Lynette Anderson's Noah's Ark BOM, we've become good blogging buddies and she takes the best holiday snaps!
10. Newcomer to blogland is one of my 'real life' buddies, Deb L who I've known for ... hmmmm ... a LOT of years! She's a loyal friend with a warped sense of humour - no wonder we've stayed buds for so long!

And I could keep listing more and more of my blogging buddies, but my poor little eyeballs are now dropping right out of their sockets and this is already longer than I intended (sorry Chookyblue! Had to list ten!!), so I'll sign off. Tune in tomorrow to see my Secret Squirrel projects finally revealed, as well as some photos from the Girls Getaway - we had FUN!! Til next time - Bear Hugs!
