A Surprise Award

"I once had a rose named after me and I was flattered.
But I was not pleased to read the description in
the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall."
Eleanor Roosevelt

I was very flattered this week to have been picked by Ruth - Ruth's Running Stitch for a Stylish Blogger Award. Talk about a surprise. Thank you Ruth.

The rules are very simple:

1. Thank the person who has awarded you.
2. List seven things about yourself.
3. Pass  the award to 15 other stylish bloggers.

The seven things about me:

1. I met my husband while we were both clerks for the FBI.
2. I live in California but was born in Virginia.
3. I once attended one of Ellen's Christmas give away shows and took home lots of gifts.
4. My favorite season is fall and all it's color (even if we don't have them where I live).
5. I didn't start cross stitching until 6 years ago.
6. I live in So. Calif. and hate the beach and the heat.
7. I am one of those who wears Christmas Sweaters and shirts the whole month of December.

Now to give the award to 15 other stylish bloggers:

1. At Willow Tree Pond - Teresa
2. Confessions of a Serial Starter - Jennifer
3. Confessions of a Southern Stitcher - Pam
4. Crafty Moo - Sarah
5. Doll's Musings - Anne

Thank you very much Ruth for considering my blog "Stylish".

Always keep love in your stitches,

Congrats Theresa. I didn't know you had worked for the FBI at one time. I think that's really cool.

Thank you, Teresa--that is so kind of you! I certainly enjoy my visits to your blog, too :)

It was fun to read more about you--I love fall, too, and am very lucky to live in Pennsylvania where we have some spectacular fall colors. I'm also with you on the beach and heat... I'd take a cool shaded spot by the lake any day :)
