Susan at A Southern Daydreamer has bestowed upon me the Proximidade award just for being an encouraging commenter in her first month of blogging. How special is that? Thank you, Susan, for thinking of me. (see my sidebar for the beautiful award) The award comes with the following explanation:
"This award focuses on the friendships that blossom here in blog land.
I am privileged to be a part of this blogging community, and cherish all of you! If you have not received this award, please accept it from me!!
Blogs who receive this award are 'exceedingly charming' say its authors. This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

I've been making potholders again from Irene Berry's (an editor at Quilter Newsletter
Magazine) paper piecing patterns. This time they are for a friend's birthday.
We have shared many cups of coffee over the last 20-plus years, so I made her a cup on one of the potholders. It is blue because we both have blue willow everyday dishes!
Susan has a very elusive cat that is black with a tuft of white hair under her chin. The cat runs and hides every time our Wednesday a.m. coffee group meets at her house!! I think this is what the cat looks like since I rarely see it.
