Award .. Thank You .. Thank You All!

I have been awarded the Arte y Pico award by Tracy at Dragonfly. THANK YOU TRACY! It was Tracy's blog which gave me the inspiration to join a stained glass class at the beginning of this summer. I read a post she had done a while ago, then lost her blog for a long time - as you do sometimes! I was delighted to find it again when looking up some stained glass blog references.

I decided that even though i'm pretty sure all of my nominees have already received this award, I would pass it in gratitude to these lovely blogs which all had a part in getting me started on this crafty blogging trip! Thank you ladies all for your inspirations...

Lisa at U-Handblog: Like many reading this i suspect, it was Lisa's blog(s) that introduced me to the whole 'craft blog scene'. She is one inspiring woman!

Anna at Marmadaisy: I can't remember if the first tutorial I followed was one of Anna's or one of Lisa's. But Anna's was certainly the first one I blogged about!

Jo at Today We Are: I like the humorous way in which Jo writes, the beautiful bags and dresses she creates, and her cat pictures make me laugh. She also has extremely good taste in fabric.

Helen at Angharad: Helen's makes beautiful things and I like to see them because they are the type of things which make me wish I was as good at sewing as she is.

Florence at FlossieTeacakes: I like the style in which Florence writes about her life and her relationships. She makes everything sound like the most delicious old fashioned treat - from the school run to baking pink meringues and everything in between.
