A cold rainy Sunday night.....

A brand new yellow pencil..shape of things to come *VBG* It's been a cold, rainy weekend. Major flooding in southern MN,middle son told me tonight 17" of rain at their place...a bit much! I've added lattice to the bow ties, and worked to combine some blocks I had made a few months ago. Tomorrow, maybe pictures! I do have appointments, etc, a busy Monday.I'll try to fit in pictures. I have a new block in the mail to share, but again, it awaits a picture.
I am very honored to have been nonimated for this "nice" award by Libby. Thank you Libby *VBS* I do my best to be a "nice" person. I found out years ago that being nice, and being honest, trying to keep your word, and "doing no harm" are an excellent way to "be" in the world. These days it often seems that rudeness and anger are the "norm". It's a beautiful logo that accompanies the award. I'm not sure who designed it ..but it's lovely.
I now get to nominate more people to recieve the award ..5 or 6, I believe. I could happily nominate everyone whose path has crossed mine..*VBS* But I think I'll single out a few that I believe are "really, really nice" gals, and who maybe haven't already been awarded..*VBS*
In no paticular order, I happily nominate:(all links are on my sidebar)
Carol E. of Giraffe Dreams
Fiona of Scraps In Progress
Ms Jan of Ms Jan Quilts
Sandy of Rabbit Stitching
Barb of Thinking Out Loud

and just because I can...Bren of Pieces From Me,Jenny of Welcome To Blogland Baby Girl, and Carolyn of Lakeside Quilting *VBS*

Just been watching the national weather reports and hoping you and your will be able to stay high and dry. Can't believe the places that are suffering from flooding!

Finn, I've been reading your blog for many months now - my Aunt Angie "thethreadcatcher" linked me to your site. I don't have a blog or my own and never comment on anything I see. I have always enjoyed reading your messages and seeing the beautiful quilts that you've posted. You should be very, very proud of yourself. You sound like a wonderful woman and someone who would make a wonderful friend!!!
