Versatile Blogger Award -- What?!?!


That's me!  Moi!  Why yes!  Sue, at Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures http://suedaurio.blogspot.com/ has passed along this award to me, and I'm just tickled!  Thank you, Sue!

In return, I'm to designate this award to 15 bloggers who deserve notice.  She's one I would have chosen for my list, and she's picked several others who would have been my faves, too.  But stay tuned...

Sue has a delightful blog, and she is one of those very generous gals who has freely shared her patterns.  Like this gorgeous quilt she designed:


And wait till you see what she has on her header now, the cutest little quilt on the planet :-)  Go see, I'll wait.....

See, didn't I tell you?  Yes, adorable.

Now the rules:

1.   Add the award to your blog
2.  Thank the blogger who gave it to you.
3.  Mention seven random things about yourself. (see below)
4.  List the rules.
5.  Award to 15 bloggers.
6.  Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog

Seven random things about me:
  1. I attended ten schools in four states by high school. 
  2. I write in margins, across the bottom, into middle of other writing, on used scratch paper, on the back of envelopes, receipts, on tiny scraps, even when I have a dozen clean scratch pads on the desk.  Where did I get this silly habit?
  3. One of my most interesting jobs was as garnishment administrator.
  4. I'm a first-generation American -- both parents immigrated to Canada from Finland, met and married there, where my brother was born, and then they came to the USA.  
  5. I grow old cats!  Patches, my last cat, was nearly 18.  Sparkle was 13.  Annie is just 2, so she'll probably outlast me!
  6. People pronounce my name the same as the water pitcher/filter thingie.  Except they pronounce it wrong.  (My name rhymes with Rita.)
  7. I'm excellent at loading the dishwasher -- I hate unloading it, so I wait till I can't fit a fork!
Tada!  I hereby award the Versatile Blogger Award to:
