Awww...you guys!

As many of you know, I'm kinda new at this whole blogging thing - as new at it as I am at sewing, actually, since I started doing them at roughly the same time. And, as you may recall, a few months ago, a lovely reader (who, I am sure, has impeccable taste in all other matters) generously gave me the Primitive Excellence Award, which you can see at the column to the right.

And since I went on from there and invented the Ugly Mug Award and promptly offended many, many people, I figured that was the end of blog awards for me. But, no - for today I have received the Kreativ Blogger Award. TWICE!

The wonderful Karen from the great state of Indiana and the divine Grace from I don't know where, but I'm gonna guess somewhere down under because she emailed me at like 3 a.m. this morning and uses the word "mum" for mom, both have kindly passed this honor on to me. Wanna see it?



Now, I made fun of my Primitive Excellence award, since it was clearly intended to honor those who sew in the primitive style, whereas I sew like my people just discovered fire. And I certainly do not wish to offend the wonderful, lovely, talented, and just gosh-darn sweet ladies who decided I was worthy of being awarded something, but...

Didja notice it's spelled KREATIV???? And I'm an EDITOR??? Are you TRYING to kill me??? I love you girls, I really do, but, goddamn, I get twitchy just looking at that word.

I am supposed to pass this on to 5 people, and I suspect all 5 have probably been awarded with this before, but here goes:

Vicky W. from Field Trips in Fiber - because she has awesome glasses, is absurdly talented, and posts a great weekly list of great things to check out in other blogs.

jen from Haphazard Thoughts - because she is just starting out on this whole sewing/blogging thing like I am and I want her to keep it up. I'm convinced that blogging about sewing has really helped me keep on sewing.

Kate from KateKwiltz - because she called her kitty a "spiteful little shit" (and because she's, you know, cool and talented and helped me pluck up the courage to say "no way" to the crazy party - thanks, Kate).

Kathy from Kathy's Quilts - because she makes lovely quilts, and has the ultimate good fortune to hail from Coon Rapids, MN. I just imagine all these people shooting down rivers flowing with raccoons.

And Joyce from J's Quilting Blog - because her work is uniquely her own, in a way I would like my own to be someday.

You know the drill - pass it on to 5 people.

(Oh, and BTW - I kicked MAJOR ASS in that interview this afternoon.)

Thanks for the award. Glad to hear the interview went well.

Cathy said...

Yaaaaaay Megan! I knew you'd rock. Now if they'd get their acts together . . . Hope you have great news on Monday for all of us.

Wow...thanks lady! And yay for kicking ass on the interview!! Don't leave us for editorial land. As an editor, does it drive you NUTS to read posts where people use ellipses incorrectly and don't capitalize and blah, blah, blah?

KateKwiltz said...

Aw, shucks! I'm speechless!

Perhaps we can all just channel our inner German and embrace the spelling...or not. (Of course, I'm the one who spells it "kwiltz," so it's no surprise I'm OK with it.)

Hope you had your own crazy party instead! And glad to hear about the interview!

Sending both good thoughts and karma back atcha,

Kate and the spiteful little shit, Archie
