Liebster Award

I was delighted to discover that Anna of Fresh Dew Drops had nominated me for a Liebster Award, something I had never heard of but felt honoured that she selected me once I had.

Anna, for full disclosure, is my one and only official blog follower (I know of several friends who also regularly read my blog, but the lovely Anna is the only one to actually click on following me. It made my day when she became my first follower!). 

What exactly is the Liebster Award? I had no idea, but this information comes from Anna's blog:

"The Liebster award (German for favorite or dearest) is to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.  Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass it on to five more blogs of note. A way of introducing other bloggers to the blogs they enjoy." 

There are some terms and conditions that come with accepting a Liebster Award, so I'm getting right to it:

The acceptance conditions are :
1. Thank your award presenter on your blog and link back to him/her. Done!
2. Copy and paste the award to your blog. Done!
3. Present the Liebster Award to 5 blogs that you think deserve to be recognised. See my list below!
4. Let them know by leaving a comment on their blog. Getting to this next!
5. Have faith that your followers will spread the love too!
 I sure hope everyone spreads the love!

I went through my many blogs and picked these five to nominate for a Liebster Award. I am not 100% sure about the number of followers some of these people have, but these 
are generally smaller blogs and I thought they fit the profile perfectly:

1. Holly from Vancouver, Canada over at Holly's Red Bike
2. Fingerthumb from Toronto, Canada.
3. How My Time Flies by Anita, from Mississauga, Canada.
4. Elaine, who blogs at Crazy Quilter on a Bike.
5. Karen at Sunburnt Quilts, all the way from Australia!

These blogs always have interesting, creative, beautiful things and their work inspires me and teaches me.

So thanks again, Anna, for nominating me, for following my blog, and for spreading the love you received by passing on the Liebster!

  1. Your very welcome! I remember what a thrill it was to get my first follower. So very happy to share and pass on the love : )

  2. That's awesome! I thought I followed you but I guess not - how embarrassing! I'll get right on that. And thanks for nominating me too! I just need to get healthy so I can sew and therefore blog again.
