Blog Award

Judy, a weaver in Sydney, Australia, who blogs at Fibres of Being, tagged me with this blog award:

Thank you, Judy! I'm so glad you visit my blog and find the ramblings herein useful and entertaining!

The responsibility of anyone receiving this award is as follows (and yeah, it does sound kinda like a pyramid scheme of some sort, but hey...):

1. Post this award on your blog.

2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.

3. Nominate at least 4 other bloggers, and add their links as well.

4. Leave a comment at the new recipients’ blogs, so they can pass it on.

Wow! That's a challenge, as I read a lot of blogs (admittedly on a fairly sporadic basis due to schedule commitments). Here are just a few blogs that I particularly enjoy:

Alice Schlein, in South Carolina; weaver, teacher, and author extraordinaire, who can make the intricacies of jacquard design sound easy (!)

Michael Cook, from Texas; silk reeler, tablet weaver, and embroiderer whose work I admire

Bonnie Tarses, in Seattle; whose sense of color (and playful use of color) is unequalled

Neki Rivera, in Barcelona; an all-around fiber artist - weaver, needleworker, and dyer

Abby Franquemont, in Ohio; teacher, weaver, spinner, dyer, proprietor of Abby's Yarns! and a grand story-teller.

Okay, folks! Tag, you're IT.

P.S. I love the fact that I can get to know fiber folk from around the world, and even if we've never met in person, we can share ideas, skills, and inspiration with one another. All through the medium of cyberspace - ain't the Internet cool?
