It's the Weekend, Yippee Skippee!

My dear friend Barbara says I'm a "Rockin'Girl Blogger". It was very kind of her to include me on her list. I think that it's been a little more than a year that the two of us have been communicating with each other as a result of blogging. Despite the fact that we have never met, I consider her to be a great friend. Love to you Barbara!

As I work my way through blogs today (my weekly catch-up) I see that a number of others have already been tagged, so I'm not going to tag anyone else, but I will list five stitchers who are special to me. (It is really difficult trying to keep this list at five!)

Becky is one of the most generous stitchers I know. Through her exchange boards she fosters friendship between stitchers from all parts of the world.

Karen V is an amazing source of inspiration. She has impeccable taste when choosing designs to stitch; her finishing skills are marvelous.

Lelia is one of the first bloggers I befriended. We both lead busy lives with our families, and both share a passion for needlework.

Carol is unbelievable - I'm amazed at everything she accomplishes! So many wonderful, large projects. And yet she still finds time to stitch a fob for every online friend when they celebrate their birthday.

Vonna has a big heart. She too is an amazing stitcher and finisher; from her posts it's clear that she is also a great mom.

I could go on and on - there are many, many stitchers that have touched my heart since I started blogging almost two years ago. Thank you all for your friendship!

YOU dear, sweet Cathy are at the TOP of my list too if I were to make one!!! Your sincerity, love of the craft and generosity are gifts that few are given. Thank you so much for your kind words about me, for I strive to be the person you wrote about and in my heart I feel I fall short so often. Thank you, you made my day :)
And the others you mentioned are impeccable as well...all caring, considerate, generous stitchers that contribute and make this community what it is :)
P.S. Leila is a fellow Hoosier and I found her blog and then yours from hers :) How cool is that? I remember reading your blog last year before I started blogging and I had gone all the way back to your first days of posting and you had pictured a LHN freebie Hometown Gameboard and I then took the initiative to find more about LHN's it was love at first sight and I have you, your stitching and blogging to thank for that! Funny how it all comes around isn't it? And to think we're good friends now!!! I would have NEVER dreamt it!
