*mention them on my blog
*let them know by sending them a message that they have been nominated
so here are five blogs i love and want to share with you...
1. Belle + Bee
I have known Becky since being sorority sisters with her in college. Her blog is actually what inspired me to start my own. I am always so impressed by what she makes her girls - be it clothing, softies or quilts. She always brightens my day when I see her blog show up in my reader. She's also one of my favorite Pinners out there, I repin most everything she posts (so long as it's not too girly for my boys!).
2. Poppy Makes...
I "met" Fiona when we were placed in the Joy Circle of do. Good Stitches about a year ago. I am amazed at her quilting and piecing skills. I don't think I've ever seen anything of hers that has not made me wish it was mine. You will really be inspired by the lovely creations and her sweet personality!
I met Suzanne when I was assigned as her valentine in the Happy Hour Project's Valentine Exchange.
Her blog is full of really neat ideas, great recipes and an amazing way to transfer graphics to fabric (key word citru-solv, that's all I'm going to say). Her upbeat attitude will always make you smile.
4. Sweet Diesel Designs
Bianca is in Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild with me and she is amazing! Her blog lives up to its "sassiness with a bit of an edge" description. Definitely looking forward to seeing more from Bianca - she is talented and has a great eye for picking fabrics.
5. Lawson and Lotti
This would be the one pick where I don't technically "know" the blog's author. I started following when I saw the amazing pouch Lotti made for the most recent Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway. That spurred me to take a look around her blog and it was love at first sight. So glad to have found it, her projects truly are a feast for the eyes!
Hope you all enjoy checking out these blogs!
