I've been bestowed "Outstanding Blogger Award"

 My dear blogging friend Kathi of Design Orginals by KC has bestowed on me and a few other bloggers an "Outstanding Blogger Award". I am humbled that she enjoys visiting my little blog each week. I always visit hers each week also. 

The goal of this award is to get to know each other better, not really to tout the award. Here are the questions with my answers that Kathi asked of each of her nominees:

What is your favorite color/what color do you have the most of in your craft area?

I would have to say that I like all colors. Usually my answer is purple, but I rarely make any crafts with that color. I would say that I love blue. My bedroom and kitchen are blue, but my living and dining rooms are red with green. Go figure. I really like almost any color. 

What is your favorite time of day to craft and what craft do you choose first?

I will craft any time of the day, but I mostly craft in the afternoon after work. When I am on school vacations, I try to get an early morning start on my crafting so that I can work on more than one project per day. I most likely choose to cross-stitch. 

What is your favorite season outside and why?

I think my favorite season is Spring as I get to plant all my flower pots and it becomes warm enough to sit on my front porch and craft or read.

What type of crafter do you wish you had more of in you? (Ex: I wish I could applique better)

 I would love to be able to knit sweaters that truly fit and are to gauge. I would like to have the time to make more quilts.  

There are several bloggers whose content I enjoy each and every week. I will bestow the "Outstanding Blogger Award" to the following:

Karen at Pumpkin Sunrise

Diann at Little Penguin Quilts

Renee at Hand Stitched Treasure

Jocelyn at Canadian Needle Nana

I would like them to answer the following questions:

Do you do anything else while crafting? (i.e. listen to music or a book, watch TV, etc.)

Do you prefer crafting alone, with a friend or in a group?

Beach, lake, mountains? What would be your preferred place to vacation/visit? 

What is your favorite genre of music?

Okay ladies, I hope you accept your award and bestow it on others to allow all of us to learn about each other and discover "new to us" blogs.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Congrats Cathie... I am sooo glad you accepted and clearly worded how cool this award is to find new bloggy friends and to think what your own answers may be too! Thanks for the shout out on your blog... I like your new blue background too!

  2. Congratulations Cathie: What a beautiful honor.
    I always like to hear what other bloggers like and dislike.
    I cannot stitch while watching tv or having the radio on I lose track easily, maybe they call that ADHD nor sure.
    It would be interesting to see your green and red living room and dining room.


  3. Congratulations, Cathie. You deserve it and I loved reading the get to know you questions and answers - very interesting. I am an afternoon crafter too and love all colors. Have a great week.

  4. Congratulations!!! Thanks for mentioning me I appreciate it.
    my answers: I watch tv while knitting at night, I usually craft alone but did have a knitting group before covid that met twice a month. I will always chose the BEACH, and my favorite music is silence. If I can't have silence then I'd go for musicals.

  5. Cathie, I love visiting your blog! How fun! Thank you for adding my blog to your list. I'm flattered and will share my answers this week. It was fun reading your responses. :)


Thanks for your comments! I love to hear from you.
