Thinking Blogger Award

There's nothing like an award to bring someone out of their artistic "slump". Waltraud has named me for the "Thinking Blogger Award". I can't believe it - I feel very honoured that Waltraud thinks that I deserve it - thankyou so much!! It is just what I need at this time - and pushed me back into my "little" art/craft room to do some creating (see my previous post)...... Now, I am meant to name 5 other blogs for this award - and that in itself is very hard!! I read so many wonderfully creative blogs from so many talented textile artists - so who do I pick - geez!!
Okay, here goes:


1. SueB - Sue is so talented and just creates, creates, creates - to the amazement of all of us. She is also such a generous artist and shares many of her wonderful projects with the rest of us.


2. Emmy - Emmy is one of my all time favourite textile artists. Just take a look at her blog and you will understand why.


3. Jacqueline - I love Jacqueline's blog!! She is an amazing textile artist from Nederland, and lucky for us - also writes her blog in English.


4. Lynda - Lynda does the most amazing textile experiments of all times - explaining as she goes along what she has done and used and posts pictures of the progress.


5. Terri - Terri's textile art is gorgeous. She has such a wonderful whimsical style, which includes such lovely colours and designs.


Now, I have HAD to chose ONLY 5, which was REALLY HARD!!! There are many others I would like to have added, including - DebH, Doreen, Mags, CarolM, VickiW , etc, etc, etc - I could go on, and on, and on..... There's also some others that have already been chosen for the award....... But that's it, I have to get up at 4.30 a.m. tomorrow, as I start work at 6, so I have to get to bed!!! Hope you all have a wonderful day/night - goodnight from Oz!!

Thank you for the comment on my bag. I wish you did live nearer as it is difficult to get people interested in Basingstoke,Hampshire.
