A few days ago I was thrilled to see that I was awarded the Versatile Blogger award by Barbara over at Cat Patches. Thank you very much Barbara I am very honoured to be included in your list! I found Barbara’s blog late last year and it has quickly become one of my favourites. She is a very talented quilter and photographer!

4.       List the rules.
5.       Award to 15 bloggers.
6.       Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.

Okay seven random things about me.....hmmmm

7.       I have visited 16 different countries

Okay now to choose 15 different bloggers..This is going to be hard I would really like to include everyone that I follow since I enjoy all your blogs. I am going to go with the blogs that I visit the most in no particular order.

1. Annies Kitchen Garden- Annie’s Granny or Mrs. Lettuce as I refer to her always has great gardening tips that she is willing to share
2. Daphne’s Dandelions- Daphne is the host of harvest Monday’s and it is her posts that helped to start me on my gardening blog adventure.
3. Growing and Cooking- Wilderness’s blog is a new on that I have come upon that I truly enjoy. It’s amazing to see the meals she can make for such a low cost!
4. Gingerbreadhouse7- Ginny is a kind hearted soul that is always willing to lend great advice from garden to canning to how to cook cows tongue!
5. The Gardener of Eden- Robin is the host of Thursdays Kitchen Cupboard and constantly fills my head with great recipes and how to grow a great garden
6. Insanity Defence- Josie has become my partner in crime in starting up a virtual bee. Neither of us knew what we were doing but we both started bees and they are working out great.
7. Buzzing and Bumbling- Linda has a great blog full of tips and easy to follow tutorials. She has a very creative mind.
8. Quilt times- Sue’s blog was the first quilting blog I found and started to follow. Through her kind words and encouragement I have found myself quilting more than I thought I ever would! She has a great book out called Pick Four. I flip through it at least once a day and have plans to start a quilt from her book this month!
9. Hazel’s Quilts- Hazel is a very talented quilter who takes you along on her quilt journey from start to finish. I also just found out she is garden too...what a perfect combo!
10. Quilting by the River- Connie is another talented lady whose projects never cease to amaze me. Her new quilting room is a dream come true for me!
11. Butterfly Quilting- Flo is the first quilter from Saskatchewan that I had found online. It is nice to see a talented quilter that is in the same province as me.
12. Sew Happy Geek- I just found Jenna’s blog late in 2011, but just in time to start her QAL. Her instructions are clear and easy for a newbie like me to follow. I am very grateful to her for teaching me so many new blocks!
13. Aunt Polly’s Porch- Polly’s blog is always full of the neatest creations and the cutest little dog name Yogi!
14. Quilt monster in my Closet- I found Christine’s blog in December when I was looking for a virtual bee to join. Her blog was the first one to show up in my Google search and I asked to join right away. Wonky is something that I can’t quite wrap my head around, but I am so happy she started this wonky bee.
15. Modern Balabusta- I just came across Lisa’s blog this year and it is full of very lovely blocks. I enjoy checking out her blog to see what she comes up with next.

I could go on and on since there are so many great blogs out there. I hope you take the time to visit all these lovely ladies.

Thank you once again Barbara for awarding me this lovley award
