I’ve been awarded the Rocking Girl Blogger award by Jacquie of Jacquie’s Journal for living through cancer (which really means surviving the chemo and radiation!) and keeping The Stitchery blog in in high spirits. If Jacquie is a new blogger to you, drop by and say “Hi!, Mary Beth sent me”. She’s very loving, a great community builder and quite computer programming savvy.
I’m honored and am joining a long list of lady bloggers who have been tagged.
I am supposed to display the Badge of the Rocking Girl Blogger but WordPress.com makes that difficult so I am taking the easy way out. You can see the badge here on Tany’s blog, Couture et Tricot, the entry of August 7, 2007. Isn’t it pretty?
While The Stitchery may have stayed upbeat, my personal life hit the bottom. Fortunately, I didn’t post much during that time: my brain didn’t work right (it’s called “chemo brain” and short-term memory is kaput), my fingertips couldn’t type (no feeling), the eyes have difficulty focusing so reading and computer work is almost impossible, and the various drugs caused addiction quite easily with attendant mood swings. But it’s over now.
Now, the chief duty of a Rocking Girl Blogger is to tag 5 more people so here they are:
1. Lisa Laree at SewRandom Blogspot for being so steady at posting and sewing for her community church as well as her family.
2. Pam Erny of Off The Cuff ~Style! for being a brave leader in the sewing blog world and a wonderful designer and constructionist with her own fabulous supplies store for sewing enthusiasts, Sew Exciting Fashion Sewing Supply
4. Summerset of Pins and Needles blogspot for maintaining almost daily a blog full of inspiration, creativity and absolute beauty and for her wonderful tutorials and techniques.
5. Linda of Patterns, Fabric and Thread for trying, succeeding and doing well and for being a gentle friend and source of support.
Forgive me if you have already been tagged. I’ve not kept up with all the blog reading during the spring and eary summer but that doesn’t mean I didn’t want to! If you have been previously tagged I’ve got more people that can be loved like:
Tini of Tini’s World of Fibre Arts for being simply a treasure
Lorna of Newman’s Needle for being another treasure
Lisa of Blackwater Park for being yet another treasure and doing it her own wayyyyy.
To name just a few… 🙂
