OK – I’ve been tagged by Libby to name five blogs that keep me thinking for the Thinking Blog Award. Pretty cool.

The first would have to be Joanne, It’s how I got started blogging. I was researching Rocking Chairs when her blog came up. I love her cabin pictures, and her quilting colors charm me.

Juliann’s Unwritten Blog is another that I would miss if she ever stopped writing. She is the person that makes me believe I can do it all—work, parent, housekeep, and QUILT.

Leanne Beasley’s Leanne's house Journal is another one I would recommend to everyone. I had kind of gotten off track about the reason I quilt and found her journal and to quote her,” Quilting is to enjoy the process because it’s the journey not the end.”

Carolyn at Lakeside Quilting always does the best shopping. I love her machine quilting and when she talks about family.

I’d tag Libby but she got me first. She’s the one that teaches me if it makes any since that “There’s Perfection in Imperfection”. She’s taught me I’m my own worst critic. There’s beauty in scraps and that many times it’s scraps that are treasured more than the full lengths of uncut cloth. And when it comes to raising daughters…. She’s been down the path I’m walking now so she offers sound advice. She chooses to be a homemaker but she’d make a fortune in “Teen Trauma”.

We’re bracing for more snow… I guess that’s why they invented pastel colored sweaters….

Love to read your blog, always inspiring. I only raised 1 girl, I sure am glad we finally got her grown. Now we are best friends. She now has her own daughter and says''MOM, YOU just don't understand". I LOVE IT, and you will too.Soon you will wonder when they grew up, cause you didn't see it. LOL Jewell
