versatile blogger award..thanks Deb

Thanks Deb for helping me get this award up and posted.. and giving it to me. Seems like my followers are growing I think the thread giveaway has something to do with that.. Welcome to my new followers and thanks to the "old"ones for hanging with me.. I am supposed to tell 7 things about myself .

1. I am not a computer person. I can type and get from site to site, and I can use it to by stuff. Other than that I have to ask for help from others..again thanks Deb.

2. I would love to open a store someday that specializes in thread and thread crochet. I want to carry only the best threads and maybe some good yarns..Can't find good thread at any stores around here..I order it online..I use DMC Cebelia..

3. I am married, have 3 daughters, 6 grandchildren..I have been so truly blessed. My cup runneth over.

4. I love to crochet..I find time to do it everyday..I don't work outside the I make sure I have lots of time..I am never "bored"

5.I hoard thread and patterns..I have more pattern books than any store and I still go to the yarn section to look at pattern books..I will not buy patterns that have been taken from books or magazines..kind of my hang up about tearing up a pattern book.

6. I do one craft show a year at our county fairgrounds..400 crafters..all homemade crafts. One of the best shows I have ever been to. The local paper even did a lifestyle article featuring me, yours truly..and named me the Doily Lady..So I guess I am a celebrity..LOL

7. My big toe looks like my husbands thumb.

How's that for some information..thanks for reading and I hope you all have a great week..I am trying to get something done so I can make a post tomorrow with a pic..

Congrats on your award....and of course you are a celebrity to all of us! :)

Do you make snowflakes for Christmas? I was just wondering. All your doilies are so pretty...I can almost see your tree covered in hand made crocheted snowflakes. :)

Wishing you a wonderful day. :)

Congratulations! I thought I was reading about me because I too love thread and thread crochet, I would love to open a thread store, I also hoard patterns and books. This is scary!
