Like to sew? I used to quilt quite a long time ago and have since forgotten why I gave it up. While traveling about the blogosphere this evening, I came across a giveaway I'd like to share with you.

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
My problem lies in the fact that I can't choose 8 blogging friends that I haven't already bestowed an award upon at some point. So I am choosing one tonight. It's a new friend I've made online and actually, I already know the person in real life. This person is
