"This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are extremely charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award."

Last week, my Dear Friend Blogger, Pat, from http:alittleofthisandalittleofpat.blogspot.com sent me this award. I have been so busy with Mandy's Baby Quilt that I haven't been able to respond...so, I just want to first Thank You Pat for this Award and second, I am so grateful that I met such a sweet and caring friend, in you!!! You are always there for me and pick me up when things get a little crazy around here, so THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!

I believe, as Pat writes about this award first originated in Portugal. I have to now pass it along. I, like Pat, wanted to name Pat Sloan and Fig Tree Quilts and many other professionals that have inspired me along the way, but I do know how busy they are so...this is who I picked:
