Blogging Award....

Jeanne - Willow Tree Stitcher gave me this award, so here we go (thank you Jeanne!) She has listed 5 Addictions & then nominated 5 people for the award.

Here are 5 addictions~

1. Stitching (obviously!)

2. Stash Collecting :-)

3. I LOVE fabrics... sewing fabrics, have quite a bit but it's never enough!

4. Chocolate

5. A secret one - watching As The Words Turns

My late grandma watched this "forever", and my mom watched it for many years. I have been watching it for as long as I can remember. I record it daily & watch it (or ff through it) on the weekends or if Ray is busy doing other things & I have the TV to myself (which isn't often!) Now, you know my big secret!

As for nominating 5 blogs, this would be so hard for me to do. I read lots and so many of them are just wonderful, it would be hard to chose. I'd love it if you'd accept the award & post it on your blog though?

I hope to stitch as much as possible this weekend. We don't watch football & there isn't much on, so I have a book on CD & I might just put that on & stitch as much as I can. Someone asked about my "pain". I was told several years ago (4-5 now?) that I *likely* have fibro. I have been to several docs, but all they want to do is push pills on me & I'm not up for that. So.... I have learned some stretches, heat, ice, ibuporfen & how to (mostly) suffer in silence. ;-)

Oh, that one little bird yesterday went & told all of his friends about the thistle seed sock because this a.m. we watched at least 20 of the little birdies just go to town on it! We have to run out tomorrow to buy more seed! I'm so happy to see birds again. Today we had some bluebirds in our fountain. Yeah! :-) Ray is going to get the birdbath cleaned out & filled up so they can get it in again. Only the bluebirds get in the fountain. Must have something to do with running water?? See, doesn't take all that much to make me happy! :-)

Thanks for visiting & I hope you have a great weekend. I'll post another stitching update in a couple of days!! Happy stitching!

And the really fun thing is that you can enjoy all 5 of your addictions all at the same time (if you do your stashing adding online :) )!

Congratulations on your blog award, Amy. I'm sorry about your fibro pain. No fun, especially for someone that loves to stitch. I'm right there with you watching the birdies. Every morning they are all lined up on my fence waiting for me to feed them. I just adore watching them. It doesn't take much to make me happy, either! {{{hugs}}}}
