ATC's and an Award.

I've been doing quite a bit the past few weeks but I just haven't got down to updating all of you on the happenings. Let's hope that's going to be remedied starting this week.

I've recieved some ATC's in the post. So let me show you.
This one is from Anna who makes amazing corsets and is equally adept at creating unconventional fabrics.My ATC to you will be in the mail this week,finally got a few done - that's one of the things I've been doing the past few weeks.
This one's from Gina in Australia who organised the first ATC swap on Stitchin Fingers. Gina I finally have an ATC to swap with you, on that one on one swap we've been mailing each other about.About time ! I imagine you must be saying.
Thank-you Anna and Gina for taking my ATC collection to 3.

I've also been given an award by T&S a couple of weeks back.Thank-you for the Premio Dardos award.
The norms of the Premio Dardos award is to pick 15 blogs who deserve this award for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing.

Hmm... 15 is a bit much and lately a number of people have blogged about the absurdity of awards and made their blogs "tag free zones" so I'm just going to list blogs I personally find culturally enriching,are creative and original.
I'm not going to notify the authors of these blogs so there's no pressure and compulsion to comply with the rules and pass the award on to 15 people!!!
If you are reading this and have a culturally enriching blog , then please consider yourself a recipient of the Premio Dardos award.

why thank you :) to get an award from you is indeed an honour. i am totally in awe of your magic.

i can embroider a bit and i find it strange that people think of it as an old fashioned thing. just watching things shape is so fulfilling....

thanks so much again...

I liked your idea of not notifying the bloggers to whom you decided to pass on the awards. I did get a couple of responses in the lines that you just described. I m going to do exactly what you have done with the award we passed on to you.

See you continue to be our inspiration...!!!

T and S - konjum over illey? glad to know I continue to inspire!!!

Also wanted to congratulate Priya and you for the completion of you wonderful Redbook project:-))

Take Care

makes sense...after that last tagging i felt constrained and obliged to pass it on, and then felt guilty for having loaded such a task on to others....
have come to conclusion that tagging is kinda like pyramid selling...

Hello Arch,yes its great to get things by snail mail, now I have a stamp collection going as well. No the Red Book is not over as yet but when we do publish we'll let you know so you get an advance copy.

India those roses are gorgeous.Couldn't agree with you more about the pyramid selling.
