I received the Sisterhood Award from Scrappy Quilter today, and I have to say I'm honored. I have found so many wonderful people in blogland and some, I hope, are becoming friends. She's such a great person and check out her project and dream: Quilts for the North.

In order to officially be the recipient of this prestigious award, I need to do a few things first --

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received your award.

Here goes:

Quilting in Oz Mary is a wonderful lady, I love her blog, her take on life, her strength and it's just plain fun to make friends with people of another generation, both older and younger, to get a totally different view of so many things, both big and small.

Stitchin by the Lake Marlene has such a great way with words and is able to write a wonderful stories about ordinary happenings in her life. It's a great gift to be able to give laughter to others without hurting or using people along the way.

Dr Quiltmom Now here is a blog that has bin a great help to me in quilting my quilts. She gives me courage to just get on with it. And most important.... to finish. LOL. Also a fun read.

Julies Blog Jule is a nice and talented lady who welcomed me to Quiltvillechat (you can read about it here) when I first became part of that and also was the first to welcome me to blogland. And a teacher, I so totally respect people that have a talent to teach children.

Quiltin Grandma Donna is another wonderful lady who has helped me with my blogging, lets face it, I'm not good at computering. I like visiting her blog, it's somehow calming, I often wonder if we can somehow perceive the personality of the blogger through the blog.

Button Counter I like blogs like Monica's, that after visiting put me in a lighter mood and make me ready to tackle what ever comes my way. Hm.... I'm getting sappy here. LOL. Actually, all the blogs I have mentioned make me feel like that.

I wont nominate more blogs as I don't comment on so many, and I don't feel it's right to nominate a blogger that I have not made a connection to. Does that make sense? Anyway, I had a very hard time to start commenting, I so often felt like I was intruding.

Now on to other things. I have finally beat the cold (well almost) and am thereby able to do things that need concentration again. I have done very little knitting or sewing because I become so restless when sick, like a caged lion. And it's so frustrating because I know that if I only would get in bed I would be able to sleep it off in few days. I read a little too, but mostly I just ambled listlessly about the house between milking and doing chores. Now, enough of that.

Here is my first Siggy ever. It's my name. Sunna means the sun. My middle name Reyr is the Icelandic name of a grass plant: Anthoxanthum odoratum. I will not be using that in the block. I thought about it but figured it would look like a tree when finished. LOL.

Here it is finished, but a little bit small and not quite as the instruction says, so I will make another later today so I can mail it off tomorrow.

Oh, and it's not wise to sew the beads on before you assemble the block. Grrrrr.



  1. Thank you for the nomination. You are very thoughtful.

    I really love the siggy block. I have never made one.

  2. Oh I do love string quilts - I've made a couple but haven't made one like yours and that's a wonderful way to put them together. I think I'll try that on my next one. And your sunny block is beautiful even if it's too small. It would be perfect made into a small wallhanging for your front door. :) blessings, mrlene

  3. Thank you so much, Sunna. I'm flattered and I've enjoyed getting to know you too. Now I have to decide who to nominate.

  4. I love your siggy block. I've never made one either. Don't ever stop commenting....I've so enjoyed getting to know you through your comments and through your wonderful blog. Hugs..

  5. Thanks so much, Sunna! I am honored. I am happy to say that you are one of my bloggy friends. I never knew I would have a friend in Iceland!! :-D
