Blogging friends forever

Kieny - The Dutchlady - my blogging friend from Taiwan gave me this award. It is such a lovely award to receive!

The rules are :
-that you give this award to four dedicated followers of your blog;
-and to one person who is new to your blog and lives on the other side of the world.
-Link back to the person who gave you this award.

I would like to pass it along to four followers of my blog --

Quiltmom A long time follower of my blog who just recently started blogging herself! I got to have lunch with Anna in Red Deer. It is always so nice to meet fellow bloggers.

Wendy - Snippets of a Quilter --- we live close enough to each other that we got to meet for lunch as well - and I am working on getting Wendy over for a visit to teach me how to do that wonderful stitching that she does.

Carole - Quilting Adventures -- one day Wendy and I will hopefully talk Carole into making a trip out west.

San - Gypsy Quilter - who was my Secret Santa Christmas partner last year and has stayed with me ever since and she sent that lovely little quilt for dear little Hunter.

Andrea - from Tierra del Fueg0 is probably my farthest away follower but she has been following my blog for some time -- but I thought I would include her because she is so far away and so sweet and I enjoy my visits with her as well!

Micki - Irish Muses - is a recent visitor to my blog and she is far away in Ireland.

Isn't the internet wonderful?

I decided to bring out the little featherweight machine to work on the Gladiola quilt - pictured in the previous post. The fabric is a bit of a vintage design - so I thought I would give the featherweight a bit of exercise. It is still sewing like a dream. And so much fun to play with.

Doesn't it look lovely -- sitting on my Tazzie mat with my Darlene pin cushion at her side. I think she might need to be out for exercise a little more often. It was last year when I took her to the retreat that she was used last. I think she might even need a name.... I wonder if that is a little too much -LOL.

Well -- I am off to the quilt shop...........

Jim says that this quilting seems to be more about the "stuff" --- I said it's ALL about the "stuff" !!!


  1. How fun to see your Tazzie mat in action! I adore my featherweights, and for one of them, after her latest disgrace, she's called 'Stinky'. When she's not so smelly, she's called 'Baby'.
    Also, I'm with you, it definitely is ALL about the stuff. And the more stuff, the better!

  2. HI Pam,
    Thank you for the lovely award- I have so enjoyed getting to know you. Blogging has introduced me to so many lovely people - it has been fun.
    As for the award, I am sorry but I do not know how to put it on my blog or link it back- See what a blogging neophyte- I am... Yikes..Help..

    A good friend has a featherweight and loves using it when she goes to retreat- it truly is so portable and fun to use.. Yours is a real beauty..
    Tazzie's mat is great too- quilting does have the greatest stuff..

  3. Thanks for writing and for including me on your list...I am honored! By the way, I also have a featherweight,and love it. It is a Singer 221 Featherweight, and it goes with me to all my bees. Yours is lovely! Aren't they great machines?
    Nice hearing from you. I will enjoy reading your blog now.
    In Ireland
    PS: It isn't that far away as you will have to come and visit someday.

  4. Thanks for including me on your list, we might have to go visit Carole in person one day.

    Tell Jim I have lots of "stuff" and can prove it!
    I love your new look, very cute.

  5. Love your Tazzie mat. I have one too ;). I think the most shocking thing for me about blogging has been the friendships that have formed. I was not expecting that at all.
    It has been fun catching up here at Pam's Pages!

  6. Hope your thumb is better and your thigh, ouchie!!
    Meeting bloggers from around the world is like having tons of pen pals I think.
    Bowen Island? I passed that on the ferry that goes to Gibsons to visit friends. Too gorgeous for words :^)

  7. it is most definitely all about the "stuff" :)

    What a cute set up!

  8. You are such a sweetheart. Thank you! Yes, I do plan on coming over for a visit. I want to sit on those blue chair and look out your nicely done windows. Oh... with a glass of wine! ;o) So much going on at the moment. I just don't want to think about it. How nice that you stayed in touch with last year's secret Santa. What a sweet machine! And yes, it is about stuff! I'll be off to MA to visit my inlaws. Quilter Crow here I come. Enjoy your trip.

  9. I do love your Featherweight!
