Go ahead, make my day!

Both Teri and Sandra have given me this award - aw shucks! Here’s what the guidelines for this award say: "Give the award to up to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel so happy about Blogland! Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so that they can pass it on. Beware! You may get the award several times!"

So here are MY awards - in no particular order. If I omitted your blog, it's not that I don't enjoy reading it - just that I have a limit of 10 awards to give out. And there are also blogs I read every day, like Yarn Harlot and Crazy Aunt Purl, which are hugely popular and get hundreds of comments, but I don't have a personal relationship with them, so they're not included.

So here goes - you make my day!

Kirsty of Two Lime Leaves - I had the pleasure of meeting Kirsty at the 2007 Quilting Symposium -how does this girl manage to be so funny? And so clever?

Deb of Red Shoe Ramblings - We haven't met but I know we'd get on like a house on fire if we did. Deb does wonderful photography, as well as being clever and funny.

Dijanne Cevaal, who sounds very foreign but is an Aussie. I took one of her dyeing classes in 1999. Her work is so visually delightful.

Suzi-K, who now lives in South Africa. A lovely person, generous with her comments, whose blog is filled with photos and always interesting to read.

Emmy from the Netherlands, who does amazing embroidery and felting.

Lynda aka Purple Missus - don't sit still around this girl, or she'll find some way of embellishing you! Always something new on her blog.

Melody from Fibermania. I don't read Melody's blog every day, just now and then, but she has a wonderful eye for colour and composition, and has been an inspiration to me in my work. Plus she knits wonderful patterns that I then HAVE to buy!

Margaret aka Digital Gran. No winding down for this girl, she's into all sorts of stuff including being part of Fibre & Stitch.

Francoise from Belgium - wonderful creative work, both digital and in real life.

Terry Grant, another lady who's into all sorts of things and always generous with her comments.

Even if you didn't get named, thanks to everyone who takes the time to read my blog, and especially those who leave comments. I appreciate you all. I'll leave you with a dyeing clothesline photo:

And you have just made my day too Shirley. Thanks also for the ice dyeing method. I had been wondering what all this was about, so now I will have to have a go at that too. Any time making tips?
