Liebster Award.......

My little blog has been chosen for the Liebster Award!  I couldn't be happier today.  It was a wonderful surprise to find in my inbox this morning.  I was chosen for the Liebster Award by one of my blog followers, Marian, who is a blogger herself over at Lady Face.

Of course this e-mail took me by surprise and I said to myself "What is the Liebster Award?"  Well, I did a little research of my own and found out that there is some fun history to this award.

Well, I looked up the origin of the word Liebster and the translation into English of this German word is "favorite".  So what does that mean?  My interpretation after some research is that I was chosen as a favorite blog and given this tremendous award!  Thank you so much to Marian for finding my blog posts interesting enough to present me with this award.  More specifically this award is given to your favorite small, up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.  

Now that I have had the honor of receiving this award, I get to pass it along to 3-5 of my favorite bloggers following these rules:

1.  Thank the person who gave me the award and link back to their blog. 
2.  Choose 3-5 blogs with less than 200 followers and pass this award onto them.
3.  Display the Liebster Award somewhere on my blog site!
4.  Let them know you awarded them by sending an e-mail or posting a comment on their blog.
5.  Have faith that your followers will spread the love too!

Here goes, I have carefully contemplated my choices and my favorite bloggers from the array of bloggers I currently follow and my choices are the following:

Bijoux Baby - I absolutely have to choose this blogger for my first award recipient.  After all, for those of you who follow my blog know, she is the dear friend who got me into sewing in the first place.  She is a great friend and incredible quilter.  Just take a look at some of the amazing pieces she has created and shared on her blog.  She has helped me learn this craft and therefore is my top choice for this award.

Eclectically Delicious - Jennie's blog is a new one I began following and immediately became intrigued by the similarities in our taste for fabric selection and design.  She is having a great giveaway on her blog right now and has some great posts with fun craft and sewing ideas. 

Sweet Diesel Design - This is a great blogger full of fun swaps, quilt alongs and informative, funny posts.  I have had fun watching Bianca's projects come full circle.  I was lucky enough to get in on her "over the rainbow" charm swap and I've been hooked on her blog ever since.

Modern Pink Designs - Sara is the blogger over on this site and she has a lot to say!  She shares her project ideas, her fabric selections and some fun tutorials.  I have picked up some fun ideas from her posts and her project photography is amazing.
