What a great Monday this is turning out to be except for the fact that I can't open Gerrie's blog or leave a comment for her. Don't know what that's about-hope it's better soon. I'll try again to link to her later
First I get a "you make my day" award from Gerrie. What's really so wonderful about it is that she put me in with a group of really talented women and I'm thrilled to be mentioned in the same sentence with all of them. Must stop blogging and sew something soon.
Then, as if that were not enough cool for one day, I open Terry's blog and find myself the soon-to-be recipient of one of the lovely birds that she has made.I was lucky enough to be one of the 3 PIF recipients. This means a lot to me since I was not lucky enough to be able to buy her "Bird & Rice Bowl" which is so beautiful. Some other lucky New Yorker got her hands on it before I could.
Anyway, this is just the best day.
The sun is shining and it's 55 degrees in January in NY.
Now I'm supposed to give the award to 10 people that make my day and tell them on thier blogs about it. I really don't like picking out people. The only way I can do this is to pick people who are the first ones I read daily and the ones who have made a difference in my day so often. Anyway, here goes. Along with Terry & Gerrie,

Wow, I really hate making lists. There are so many other wonderful blogs I visit that make me smile and are so talented. It feels a bit like Jr. High to have to pick only 10. The first blogs I open each day are Gerrie and Terry(rhymie, heh). They up-date almost daily and always have something to teach me.
Thanks, ladies, for the gifts you give each time I check in on you all.
