This award is from Sue at The House that Love Built. How do we find these bloggers that touch our hearts or inspire us? By picking and choosing titles that sound meaningful or interesting, I suppose. Audrey and I often email links to each other because we think we've found a great one. Sue's blog inspires me because of her walk with the Lord and because of her beautiful quilts and uplifting stories. Her emails to me have encouraged me as well.

When I am finished spending time on the computer, I want to have a more positive outlook on what's going on around me, or I want to be itching to sew and stitch. Sometimes just a thoughtful message will make me think or keep me going through the day. Sue, you have done all this for me. Thank you again for thinking of me with this award.

So now who do I pass this to?

Melanie at Covered Porches and Wooden Screen Doors. This was one of the first blogs I started following, and the first blogger to email me. Melanie, I appreciate your friendship!

Barb at We Quilt. Another emailing blogger and encourager.

Kim at Home Sweet Home. She always has a nice comment when she comments.

Lettie at Polka Dot Pineapple. She is so clever; where does she come up with this stuff!

CJ at A Stitch & A Prayer. I love the title of her blog. Her posts are beautiful as well.

I have bookmarked so many blogs that I don't have the time or space to include all of them. These I've listed here (and including you, Sue) are very special to me. Thanks again for your friendship.
