Liebster Winner and the Couch

Hi Everyone - it seems my time is flying these days - but not at the sewing machine. Work has been crazy busy, I bought a house which just closed, and I've caught a nasty cold.

My friend Lynn won a Liebster award - you can read about hers here. Then, she nominated me - I am thrilled and honoured! Thank you Lynn.
I heard about the Liebster awards a while back - maybe in the summer, but didn't pay too much attention to it; I'm paying attention now.

This comes from Lynn's blog, who got it from the reader who nominated her:
"The Liebster award (German for favorite or dearest) is to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass it on to five more blogs of note. A way of introducing other bloggers to the blogs they enjoy."

Of course, there is responsibility with such an honour -

The acceptance conditions are :
1. Thank your award presenter on your blog and link back to him/her. Done
2. Copy and paste the award to your blog. Will do as soon as I remember how
3. Present the Liebster Award to 5 blogs that you think deserve to be recognised. See below
4. Let them know by leaving a comment on their blog. This might have to wait a day or two - see below re the couch
5. Have faith that your followers will spread the love too!
I have faith
The five blogs I nominate are:
1. Helen-Mary of; she makes me laugh on a regular basis.
2. Pippa of; lets me tap into my Welsh heritage a little more, via quilts.
3. now I have to think since some of the ones I'd recommend have too many followers, hmm...I'll get back to you on this one.
On to the couch...I've been hit with a nasty bug of some kind. I left work early on Friday cause I ached everywhere, including the bottom of my feet! I haven't felt that awful in quite some time. Last year about this time I missed 7 days of school when I pulled my inter-costal muscles from coughing with the 100 day cough. I'm not eager to repeat that experience. So, I slept on the couch, off and on, from 3:00 Friday afternoon until 8 when I went to bed and most of the day Sat. Today I laid around a lot but didn't sleep as much so hopefully I'm on the mend. Just to be sure, I'm back to the couch for the evening and will contemplate who else to recommend for the Liebster Award.
