Excellent Blog Award

Posted on

Posted by Mary Beth at The Stitchery


Kayla at ProjectMommy started this award ring in January and it’s wound it’s way through blog communities interested in child rearing, homeschooling, literary arts, and spiritual life, to name a few, landing here in the sewing community just lately. Summerset of Pins and Needles nominated The Stitchery as part of her duties. As grantees we are charged as follows:

By accepting this Excellent Blog Award, you have to award it to 10 more people who’s blog’s you find Excellent Award worthy. You can give it to as many people as you want but please award at least 10. Thank you out there for having such great blogs and being such great friends! You deserve this! Feel free to award people who have already been awarded…

I pass this badge along to friends old and new to me and for many different reasons. Good thing duplicate nominations are OK!

“How to Get the Badge”: I don’t know how. I stole it by clicking on it and save it as a picture to my computer. Sorry if I’ve done it wrong!

Fiona of Glass of Fashion

Lisa of Sew Random

Sigrid of Sigrids Sewing

Alex of Studio Alexandra

Melody of crazed sewer

Tany of Couture ET Tricot

Paco of Paco Peralta

Maria Elena of El Baul De Las Costureras (The Fashion Trunk)

Lorna of Newmans Needle

Ana Carina of Os Meus Projectos de Moda (My Fashion Projects)

And good thing WordPress allows a blogroll to share here. I don’t have much time for reading but when I do I check out my friends using that handy thing.

I used to keep a huge list of sewing, knitting, design, and science blogs at Bloglines but once I got time to open that site and saw all the unread posts listed there, I was just too overwhelmed and deleted many of my subscriptions. I am down to what I can focus enough to add here so the list is not complete by any means!

There’s plenty more wonderful sites to visit but online life is a luxurystrong


About Mary Beth

I am fascinated by changing patterns and colored threads. I sew garments and am teaching myself to machine knit. Since selling the building that housed my workrooms, The Stitchery, I'm searching for a place to set up the knitting machines again. There must be room here somewhere!

  6. Mary Beth, congrats on your so well deserved nomination and thank you for nominating me! I’m honored!

  7. I think this is fun and it can bring to your attention some new blogs (like I need more computer time…lol). And you have a couple of nominations that I have not come across. Must now go and vist…

  8. Buen día Mary Beth, con ayuda de Paco estoy analizando el asunto de la nominación pues no entiendo el ingles, en breve te daré una respuesta sobre este aunto. Gracias

  9. Hola, Maria Elena! Muchas gracias por su respuesta!
    I used’s free translator to read your comment and for english only readers, here’s what it gave me:
    “Good day Mary Beth, with the help of Alpaca I am analyzing the subject of the nomination then I do not understand the English, shortly I will give an answer you on this aunto. Gracias”

    I was shy to nominate blogs which might pose a language barrier to readers and writers but I think that this difficulity is already overcome by our shared passion for technically and artistically superior sewing. Translation sites will help some but in today’s world I refuse to let language be a dividing force.

    Your work shown on your blog is wonderful, Maria Elena! You deserve the award!

    And I am so sorry that I have let my passion for learning Spanish fall away. Using, here’s what I’ve said:

    Fui tímido nombrar blogs que quizás coloquen una barrera del idioma a lectores y escritores pero pienso que este difficulity es ya vence por nuestra pasión compartida para la costura técnicamente y artísticamente superior. Los sitios de la traducción ayudarán algún pero en mundo de hoy que yo me niego a permitir que el idioma sea una fuerza que divide.

    ¡Su trabajo mostrado en su blog es maravilloso, Maria Elena! ¡Usted merece el premio!

    Y lamento mucho que he permitido mi pasión para aprender la caída española lejos.

    Please forgive any errors!

  10. Buen día Mery:
    Ya he colocado la mención del premio a la excelencia en mi blog, en cuanto a nominar otros 10 blogs sería repetir los mismos que tú has mencionado y algunos que Paco también listó, por lo que mi lista quedó reducida a dos blogs. De nuevo gracias por tomar en cuenta mi blog para este premio. Y recibe también de mi parte felicitaciones pues tu trabajo es excelente, gracias por compatir tu esperiencia. Un abrazo desde Venezuela.

  11. Good day Mery:
    I have already placed the mention of the prize for excellence in my blog, as to nominate another 10 blogs would repeat the same as you have mentioned and some Paco also listed, so my list was reduced to two blogs. Once again thank you for taking into account my blog for this award. And also receives congratulations from me because your work is excellent, thanks to share your experience with us. A hug from Venezuela. (With Google Translator)
