Uh Oh ! Tagged!

Stephanie Petingell has tagged me ...I guess this is similar to the Meme craze- but maybe a bit different. Stephanie is responsible for getting me hooked on making Dorset buttons !

Here a the simple 'rules' for this round of tag:

1. When tagged place the name of the person and URL on your blog
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Write 7 things about yourself
4. Name 7 of your favorite weblogs
5. Send an email letting those bloggers know they have been tagged!

Seven things about me ..... hummmmmmm
1. I used to love to skydive.
2. I became an licensed pilot in 1983.
3. I started quilting in 1976 - before that I was in love with weaving and spinning.
4. My father did not want me to study art.He said if I had to study art than I should be a
cartographer so I could make money.
5. I also wanted to be an archaeologist - he didn't like that idea either!
6. I have a passion for history - especially Elizabethan. Basically 16th to 19th centuries.
7. I love blogging - and that is a true surprise to me !

Now the hard part .... I read so many blogs regularly - and learn so much from them.
I'll chose just a few then: This is a hard decision folks - there are so many great friends that blog - and I read every day......
1. sarah - my friend and energizer bunny who always has something interesting to write. she's up to her neck in alligators - so I am not asking her to participate !
2. LaDonna - her blog is just about nice,gracious living. Just always a pleasure to read!
3. JenClair. I look for her blog - she seems to have similar tastes to mine and is always posting about something interesting.
4. Kim. I love her blog! Her mind is also in tune - and her thoughts, hand work and photos always make me stop and think. Mouse medicine is a good thing in this case !
5. Vicki. I have been a follower of Vicki's blog for quite awhile now. SHe has mondo energy and makes incredible things - she too is a shutter bug and we love birds. I am tickled to be able to call her a firend !
6. Kathy. My fun clowning around friend in Texas. I love the information and fun things she always posts about. She's as good a friend as one can have - and she's really talented too !
7. Deb. I LOVE Deb's blog. She is another kindred spirit - we hail from the same area in the world and I look forward to her adventure every day !
8. Elin. What can you say about someone who has more talent in their pinkie than you have in your whole person?! Her work is amazing.
9. Sandra. A favored friend. She's been having a go with health issues this winter - so I won't expect her to participate either - but I had to mention how much I love her blog. She is a great person that I have to meet one of these days !
10. Teri. Wow ! Is she ever talented! THE most amazing paintings.
11. Sue. Sue is a dynamo - a powerhouse. She makes amazing journals that she sells in her Etsy shop, is an incredible weaver and all around artist. Sue has more energy that I have ever had - and I sure DO envy that !Sue and Teri put together the fabulous publication (though I can't believe that you have not heard of it by now!) called Fibre & Stitch.
12. Waltraud. Her blog is always a treat - lots of good eye candy - and a great person !
13. Gunnell. I love her handwork. I enjoy talking with her - she does some amazing work !

There's a Baker's dozen of the blogs I read all the time. There are so many more though ! Next time for the next round. Thank you all for making my world a much more interesting and friendly place to be !

Skydiving and a pilot! I wanted to be an archaeologist, too, and also have a passion for history with a special love of the Tudor Period.
