What goes around comes around

The lovely owner of P's Thrifty Sewing Blog , p'diddley (Pauline) has passed on The Versatile Blogger award to me.  Wow, I am thrilled to receive it, and this is the second time.  Thank you so much!  My blog shows up with 14 other blogs, and I must confess that I feel a bit of a fraud in that assemblage.  As the kids say "There are some kick ass blogs on the list".  I spend lots of blog time on sewing, but I do try to share a bit of my other loves, my concerns, and my triumphs.  So, a post on the Minoru jacket may be followed by a treatise on tea.

Anyway, I read the instructions on Pauline's blog post and I need to link back to the blog who awarded itshare 7 things about me, and then pass this award to 15 (fifteen!) other versatile blogs.  When I first got this cool prize, I awarded it on to 4 other blogs.  But, I think I screwed up because those blogs don't show the Versatile Blog badge.  So, I am going to redo those blogs right now.  Ladies, you may follow the rules above but with one change-my original rules stated to pass the award on to some recently discovered blogs.  So, you don't have to do 15, unless you would like to!

Melynda at Country Girl Couture--->you're a winner
Sigrid at analog me--->you're a winner
Lynne at Sewing Cafe--->you're a winner
TiaDia of MezzoCouture--->you're a winner

Please excuse me while I visit each one of these blogs personally and make sure the award is delivered.  I'll be back soon.

Okay, I think I have that chore taken care of.  Now, the 7 things about me.  I could refer you to this original list in which I spill my guts about hitch-hiking, marriage, and drugs, or I could make a new list.  Readers, which should it be?

I am going to add a few details, but if you want the dirt on me, you'll have to go to Oct.16, 2011.
Random facts about Mary:
1. I wore braces as an adult.
2. I am afraid of bears. Well, actually, I love to look at bears, but am afraid of being mauled by them.
3. I could happily live on toast with peanut butter.

Here are the well deserved recipients of The Versatile Blogger Award:
Margy at A Fool For Fabric

  2. Oh, thank you for passing this on Mary :)
    And I had to check out your original post for this award - meeting your husband as a hitchhiker, that is possibly the best 'how we met' story I've ever heard!

  3. Thank you very much for the award Mary! I have already received that one, so I won't try to think of any more things to write about myself, but I appreciate the thought and will mention you in my blog.
