While I was moving I received a couple of awards. This is the "Renee Award" given to me by TattingChic.
This is what the creator of the award has to say:
"This one is meaningful to me in three profound ways. Firstly, it was created in honor of Renee, one human being who has made such a difference in the lives of many just by being. Her honestly, wit, intelligence, and grit are a tremendous source of inspiration. She can elicit raucous laughter and guffaws in her banter, and then turn right around and offer the most heartfelt, gentle words of wisdom and emotional support. She is a spreader of love, simple and true. And her love is infectious.
Secondly, this award was created in collaboration with one of my best friends, Ces. She is, in Renee's own words, truly original. She is an incredible artist, both in pen and ink and paint. She is fiery passion with a gentle hand. She is laughter, fun, joy, intellectual stimulation, a sister. The concept and design of the award belong to Ces.
Thirdly, this is a brand new award, and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds its way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns…"
This was awarded to me by Val. Thank you to both girls for your generousity in thinking of me. Please visit their blogs as I love them both.
I want to introduce my newest hand dyed thread call "MAGNOLIA".
Just a reminder; all my hand dyed tatting threads now come in 100% highest quality silk. I have not been able to find anyone else who sells comparable silk thread for less.
