The Award Part
I have to admit that I have very mixed feelings about being tagged for things. Memes can be fun and entertaining, but intimidating. And then there's the passing them on to others. Not everyone likes them.
Awards, on the other hand, are encouraging. Plus, they always include a number of links to new blogs that are interesting, informative, and inspirational to read. The "You Make My Day Award" is exactly that. Awarded to blogs that give "inspiration and happiness" it is encouraging to receive, and easy to pass on. Laritza, Bonnie, Peg, Sue, Amelia, Jackie, Lady of the Loom, and Patrick have all honored me recently with this award, which really made my day, as you can well imagine!
The bad part is being allowed to choose only ten other blogs to pass it on to. I currently subscribe to 101 feeds, and this number is growing all the time! All of them provide happiness and inspiration, so how to decide?!?!!? The blogs below fit the criteria, though not all of them are fiber or textile related. I tried to choose blogs that haven't been named elsewhere already, (though being waaaay behind in blog reading, it wouldn't surprise me if they have.) Also, it is a different list from my Nice Matters Award nominations. I hope you find a couple here that will make your day as much as they don mine!
