Nancy over at Pug mom Quilts! nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. How very cool, but also a bit intimidating. I had to think on it for a few days, since I do not always have time to blog with my freaky schedule. Then there are times I get distracted and/or very focused and put things off. By the way Nancy always has great projects going on, and I it is so inspiring when she posts about her sewing posses she hangs with. I am green with envy about all her fun sewing friends.
Anyhow part of the One Lovely Blog Award is that you are supposed to provide 7 facts about yourself.
1. Between DH and I- we have 5 daughters and eleven grandchildren 7 girls and 4 boys. Only six of the grandchildren live near us. (Shh don't tell anyone but I have only made quilts for 4 of the grand kids and 2 of those were lap quilts)
2. I will tell on myself when I do something really super creatively dumb. I figure if I cannot be a good example, I can at least be a horrible warning. Here is my most recent escapade! Should I or Shouldn't I?
3. Growing up I lived on a small farm with chickens, cows, geese, horse and a garden. I hated it! I swore that I would never live on a farm, never have chickens, never have a garden, never can. I had to eat those words a few years ago when I met the love of my life. We live on a farm. The first year we put in a garden, the second year I learned to can, the 3rd year we started raising chickens. Do you see a pattern here? I will say I love my life, even with the chickens, garden and all that goes with it.
7. I am Native American, from a group of tribes in Northern California. I have been the holdout in the family regarding getting my tribal paperwork turned in. Long story about providing the original copy of my birth certificate. I will be taking care of that imminently.
Finally part of the fun and games is that you are supposed to award 10 other bloggers. Unfortunately I do not read 10 other bloggers on a regular basis, and the few I read have already been given the award. I am going to nominate Dawn at Sew You Quilt 2. She blogs regularly, and I love her pics of her kitties, and gardens.
