Liebster Award

Have you heard of the Liebster Award? Well I got one, how exciting is that. Courtney at Mon Petit Lyons awarded me one after she won one herself. Congratulations Courtney and thank you soooo much. Courtney said such lovely things about my blog, it has given me the warm fuzzies all day. She has some great things going on on her blog at the moment, a really good one to check out.

If you dont know what the Liebster Award is then here is a bit more about it:

Liebster is German for favourite or beloved and it is an award that is designed to share some love around this here blogland.


There are a few rules that come along with this award, basically you must pass the love around. So if you receive one, here is what you have to do

*choose five up and coming blogs with less than 200 followers
 *mention them on your blog
  *let them know by sending them a message that they have been nominated

So here are the five blogs that I love and that I think deserve an award and really think you should check out if you havent already:

First up we have Chase of 1/4" Mark, Courtney found me through the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway and this is how I found Chase. Her projects are gorgeous, great fabrics thats she puts together beautifully and some really sweet insights into her life

Next up we have Charise of Charise Creates. Her projects are seriously stunning, she does some amazing paper piecing and uses fabric beautifully. Very inspiring

My next award goes to Alli at B. Yazoo. Alli and I are in 2 bees together at the moment and her work is lovely, she always makes cool blocks (check out her chairs for this months Mid century Modern Theme) and she recently made a super cute fox baby quilt that I am in love with.

Have you seen the work of Ethne over at Flaming Stitches? She certainly deserves an award her work is incredible. I was lucky enough to be her secret swap partner in The Brit Bee Pillow Fight and the cushion that I received from her is unbelievable. Seriously talented indeed.

And my final award goes to the lovely Kelly of Zerbert who I have got to know through the bloggersphere and flickr. Her work is great and she is too. I love her blog as you get a real sense of her, there are always some snippets of what is whirling around in her head and I love that you get a sense of her, even though we are oceans apart. How great is it that we make such fab connections through blogging!

I hope you enjoy checking these blogs out and find them as inspiring as I do.
