Sincere Thanks

I really enjoy blogging! I enjoy writing my own blog and reading other sewers' blogs. I enjoy the online and the real-life sewing buddies I've met through blogging. It's great to have people with whom I can share my passion for sewing. I learn from the blogs I read and I learn when I do postmortems on projects for my own blog. For those reasons, blogging is a rewarding experience. So, I was really honored when -E, SewingShay, Omega and JC nominated me for the Kreative Blogger Award. These awards always come with obligations. (To whom much is given, much is required. Luke 12:48)
  1. Copy the award to your site. (√)
  2. Link to the person from whom you received the award. (√)
  3. Nominate 7 other bloggers. (uh-oh)
  4. Link to those on your blog. (wha?)
  5. Leave a message on the blogs you nominate. (sorry)

But I must be honest. I simply can't fulfill Requirements 3 - 5. There are dozens - scores - possibly hundreds of blogs better than Another Creation. I know this because the all of the blogs I would nominate have already been nominated.

So, let me say publicly, Thank you -E, SewingShay, Omega and JC for nominating Another Creation! Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read Another Creation. Thanks to the readers to take additional time to comment. Your attention is truly appreciated.


  1. I want to thank you for blogging. I love to see your creations and how fantastic you look in them. You also inspire me to sew from pattern magazines, which has now become one of my goals this year.

  2. Dear Elray: I know exactly how you feel and can truly relate. Not only am I a new blogger (3 months), but also a beginner sewer (learned to sew around 10 and kept it up till about the age of 14--all of which was a very long time ago).

    Like you, I absolutely LOVE blogging. Didn't think it would be this fun or that I'd even like it. A friend kept gently encouraging me for months. Thing is, I started mine to motivate myself into sewing and never knew it would be this rewarding...let alone, meeting so many kind, generous sewing buddies. This was beyond what I had ever imagined.

    Congratulations that others nominated you as well. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

    Looks like we'll be getting some severe snow within the next day or so...maybe I'll be snowed in to finish my first project :-) Take care.
