Sigrid passed these three awards on to me, and I'm very honored. Thank you, Sigrid. She summarized the rules:
1. Select 6/10 bloggers to whom you would like to give this award.
I'm quite new to blogging so I chose to go with those I'm most familiar with and whose blogs are mainly about sewing, although I'm sure they've all been awarded already.
In no particular order:
Melissa- I love reading about her sewing adventures and her family life. Having met her in person I'm also a bit influenced :)) She is so sweet and the way she communicated with my little one was quite special. Yup, she's a keeper!
Belinda- Her work speaks for itself. Always meticulous, she includes helpful info and has a large and loyal following, which now includes me :)) She may be "Sew 4 Fun", but that does not exclude a high degree of professionalism.
Lindsay- We know her as the NYC gal who's shopping all the time :)) If I ever get myself cross country, she'd be the first person I'd like to meet. She's also an excellent writer and has fun polls that make me think.
Vicky- She was one of the first to find my very obscure Mac blog and left messages, which speaks volumes. She's very dear to my heart, so- yes, I adore her. She has also raised two fabulous daughters. The three of them look like sisters.
Marji- Like so many others, this woman has inspired me tremendously. She is is a wealth of knowledge which she readily shares with anyone. Her posts are top priority, even when she writes about her other passion, sailing.
Kathleen- I'm not sure if she can post/participate in these awards on her website, but I want to award her just the same. She is brilliant, fun and so generous with her time and expertise. Her book is by my side always.
Nancy- Here I'm being partial again:)) After meeting her at LA PR weekend, I was struck by her soft natured-ness. She makes beautiful clothes and writes detailed info with pictures on her fitting and sewing. Her students are very fortunate indeed.
2. Put the award - prize on your blog and indicate who gave it to you by identifying her/his blog.
3. Paste theses rules on your blog.
4. Write 6 of your most important values and 6 negative points you condemn (for the Premio al esfuerzo personal award only.)
I'm choosing to sum things up :))
Important: Personal ethics and integrity.
Negative: Lack of the above.
5. Inform the recipients by leaving a comment on their blog.
Well, I think that's it. I still haven't gotten around to taking the pictures, but I will, promise :)
