Oh my. Where to begin. I just ... am ... at ... a ... loss ... for ... words. I hear the chuckles out there - me - a loss for words. I know, so out of character. Apparently Lisa at Periwinkle thinks I am just ... well ... brilliant. Ok - my blog - not me ... and 6 other bloggers too. So I must give thanks to all who have brought me here today. Mi Madre, Mi Pappa, my darling wonderful extraordinary hubbie ... my sweet little boys, Henry and John ... you outstanding and loyal readers ... Oh ... this is just too much ... my always underfoot cat ... I don't think I can go on ... I am so overwhelmed! My goodness ... the sparkles from the Tiffany's diamond trophy are just blinding ... I'm losing my senses ...

HA! Ok - enough of my blubbering "acceptance" speech - I decided to tag some sewing bloggers ... I read so many blogs that I love (and still don't have on my sidebar) that are brilliant! I could have made a list of about 30!

2. Link to the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.

I actually got some sewing done this weekend. I'll have some pictures of what I made to share this week! Happy Monday to all your brilliant bloggers out there :0}
