The Liebster award (German for favorite) is for bloggers with 200 followers or less.
As a recipient of the award, you have the chance to thank and
link back to the blogger who gave it to you as well as
pass it along to five other deserving blogs.
I truly appreciate this, especially from Sheila, who is a very talented quilter and generous online friend. Thank you, Sheila!!
Now I have the pleasure of passing this award on to 5 other bloggers. In my search through my regular lineup and beyond, I realized that I rarely even look at the number of followers a blogger has. Anyway, here are my choices for the next round of Liebster bloggers:
Let's start with my good pal Tong, who has just over 200 followers, but I'm going to ask for a little leniency here. Tong was one of my very first sewing friends, is a fellow fabric
The second blog I'd like to nominate is Ashley's Star Sparrow. Last year I was involved in quite a few virtual quilting bees, including Bee (A Little Bit) Japanese, which is where I met Ashley. She has since had a beautiful baby boy, and her blog is filled with sweet photos of him in addition to her gorgeous sewing -- both quilty items and clothing. I highly recommend it!
Next up is Allegory, whose blog is infused with her enthusiasm for sewing and a good sense of humour. I am particularly fond of her Halloween-themed version of the Farmer's Wife quilt (hope to see more of that soon!). Yay, Allegory!
I first started sewing a few years ago, with a focus on garment sewing -- this quilting thing is still a relatively new passion! I still sew clothing on occasion, and read quite a few sewing blogs focused on garment sewing. My last two picks fall into that category.
Fourth, I would like to add my voice to the chorus of praise for Night Knitter, who has made an incredible wardrobe for her daughter (lots of Oliver + S patterns, beautifully interpreted) and lovely stuff for herself as well. If you aspire to garment sewing, there is loads of inspiration to be found in her blog and flickr stream.
Finally, a new discovery to me is Lladybird, who has a great sense of style and makes gorgeous clothing -- including several Colette projects. I am especially fond of her "Fabiani" coat, V2925. The attention to detail in this coat is awe-inspiring.
I hope you'll visit all of these, and that you find as much inspiration from them as I do.
Thanks again, Sheila!
