Who? Me? Stylish? Oh! :)

I just won an award from Hazel who was very kind to think that I might fall in the category of "Stylish Blogger!"

Thank you,'s a treat to think someone thinks this Nana might be stylish!

The rules indicate that I'm to thank Hazel (Oh, I do!) and then to tell you 7 things about myself...I won't even try to think of the things you don't know, because as long as I've been doing this blog you probably have heard it at least once, dontcha know?

1. My annual spring re-evaluation of who/what I am and what I love has begun: I'm totally besotted by anything lavender, denim blue, and honey brown (as in leather, beads, yarn, clothes...). I've had such fun adding things into my etsy favorites listing!
2. I don't suppose that you had any idea that I might be a bag-(hmmm...I almost said a word I shouldn't admit to thinking) so how about "connoisseur?" Well, you know I make bags, but it's hard to admit to you that leather and I go way back...I still eye beautiful leather bags, though I rarely carry one (they're heavy!), but I am going to admit that sometimes they're a necessity, and so I finally (after years of carrying my own creations) purchased and carried to Vermont last August (as part of my carry on luggage) a Jordana Paige Knitting Satchel...Can you imagine what color I bought? *wink* And it's just for flying, which I don't do often.
3. My family thinks it's a trifle bizarre that I not only have a knitting blog, and friends all over the country most of whom I've never met who are knitters, but that my favorite genre for reading is knitting fiction! (I got eyes rolled when I began to explain the plot of my latest read - How to Knit a Love Song.)
4. I'm finally learning a little bit about jazz, and have been enjoying our local public radio station's long-running evening jazz program every night.
5. Not too long after I began my business I purchased a serger and after three years of having it sit, unused, I sold it. I can now understand that it would be very nice to have a serger.
6. I haven't yet decided if I think giving up the extended basic cable tv is okay or not. I am having withdrawal over the news programs...I'm not always home to watch the major network's evening news. And if I let myself get online the next thing I's past my bedtime.
7. My very most favorite blooming tree is in full swing here now: redbud. I adore it most when it's just about to blossom forth, when the color is deep purple...then as it moves from that thru the palest lavender I think, "No! THAT's my favorite shade..." Obviously the redbud is beautiful no matter what (in my mind's eye, anyway).

And then I'm supposed to choose 15 of you to indicate that you, too, are Stylish Bloggers! The hard part of that, you know, is that limiting my list to 15 when I have over 200 that I read thru Google Reader makes this a true challenge.
1. Jocelyn
2. Birdsong
3. Margene
4. Carole
5. Chawne
6. Lene
7. Rainy
8. Vicki
9. Carrie
10. Alison
11. Ellen & Jan
12. Ruinwen
13. Opal
14. Ariel
15. Karen

Those are not in any order, promise...I love all of them equally!

Oh, thank you so much!! I am honored - I'm in very good company, to judge both by your blog and by the others on your list :)

I, too, am going through my annual rediscovery of all things blue - after finishing a blue and white hat, a blue sweater, and a blue scarf, now I'm craving blue socks!

Sallee, you are so sweet to put me in the Stylish category. I suppose if pajamas with cats can be stylish, then I'm flippin' Heidi Klum!

Kidding. Sort of. I'll do my best to live up to the company in which I now find myself. I'd better start with a few blog updates...

Ah, shucks. One thing you didn't list about yourself is how nice you are!

Redbuds rank right up there with me, too. They are the flowering tree I miss here in MN. We have a few, but most just don't handle our cold winters.

Oh, if you could see me in my stylish jeans and tennies, slumming it in my office today. But THANK YOU!!

See why we hang onto things? Now you could use the Serger! Of course, if you'd kept it, not so much. :)

I couldn't give up TV. I'm already not exactly in step with the rest of the world, at least thru it I flip through some popular culture stuff. And for some reason, I would much rather watch it on TV than DVD's, which is a shame, actually.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
