Swaps, Tags and Awards

I have finally finished my quilt for the Four Seasons Swap. Its been sitting there waiting for binding for weeks but now its all ready to go to the Post Office and to my partner:

I think i tried too hard to put all of my partners preferences into the one little quilt and im not sure it is the look she wanted but............all i can hope is that this is what she had in mind when she was writing her preferences!!!! (I should not have photographed it on a wooden table, sorry its hard to see)

Linda, the sweetie has awarded me the "You Make Me Smile Award" which is such a lovely honour and i promise to wear my badge proudly!!! I visit her blog everyday and her posts r always so warm, they make u smile!!

So many bloggers r deserving of this award, it is wonderful to jump online and be inspired by a talented group of special women, some make me laugh, some make me smile but all of them make me feel part of this quilting community. Now i get to pass this award on (which i will at the end of this post).

The lovely Bren, tagged me for a meme (sorry i took so long to play along!!), apparently i have to use the letters of my middle name (Sharon) to share something about me........so here goes:

S- stubborn (self explainatory lol)
H- happy (i love life and what i do)
A- artistic (well i think so lol)
R- responsible (sorry DH one of us has to be lol)
O- optimistic (thats what keeps me smiling)
N- nurturing ( i take everyone under my wing, thats just me!!)

Now the rules of this meme are that i have to tag 6 other people to participate and these people also receive the "You Make Me Smile Award"........so here is my 6 (although i could name 60!!):
Anne Ida, Leigh, Debi, Susan, Elin and Tazzie.

Not only do u guys make me smile in ur blogs but also when i see ur name in my inbox!!!
Take care
