Thank You's

Big thank you to Sew, Mama, Sew! for featuring my HoJo Space Spores on their blog yesterday!


I also wish to thank the very sweet and talented Amy Cartwright for passing on the The Bella Sinclair Award which was created by the delightful artist Bella Sinclair. Bella has had a major shift in her life with the loss of her husband. I cannot imagine such a loss, and I wish her and her daughters all the best as they travel this new road together.


And speaking of blog awards... my sincere apology for being awful at not only passing them on, but also for often not even acknowledging them. To those of you that have been so thoughtful to included me when passing on your awards, I ask your forgiveness in neglecting to mention them on my blog. Truth is, I get a little squirmy and self conscious and embarrassed about them.... just another one of my quirks and oddities. I doubt if I will get much better in the future, and completely understand if I am for ever more blacklisted from blog awards. (But I truly do appreciate the thought.) xo

Just want to thank you for coming up with the HO JO stitchery. I like it so very much. Have fun with the jeans quilts. I have made 5 so far. Only thing I didn't like was I broke too many of the strongest needles I could get for my machine. Sarahe4e

I love your Space Spores! Those are awesome.
I know what you mean about feeling self-concious and awkward about the blog awards. Not that I have any, but I get that way with tags as well, lol.

Love those HoJo Space Spores! Congrats on being featured on the Sew Mama Sew (what a cute name!) blog! Also congrats on the awards! Awards make me squirmy also. While I appreciate them, I get all flustered about stressed about following through with passing them on. It's so hard isn't it? So you're not alone in your oddness :)

I will always love the Space Spores you do, so very stunning and congrats for the Sew Mama Sew feature totally well deserved.
I totally understand the squirmyness with the whole award thiggy, funninly enough I feel the same way too. I just knew I had to pass this one on, and of course to you. You were one of the first people to leave a comment on my blog!
Thanks Victoria, you're a huge inspiration.

Victoria said...

Thank you Amy, that really means a lot to me as I think you are so marvelously talented and such a nice person, too!

It was lovely to see you over at 'Sew Mama Sew', your work is so creative and inspiring it's no wonder you were featured!

I know what you mean about blog awards!

It was the spores that first made me go, "What's THAT?!" And I've been a fan ever since. How nice to get the nod from SMS, too! Congratulations.

I love your spores! I've been a fan for years, and it's so cool to know that the creator behind them is even lovelier than the amazing creation!

I have no idea what a blog award is, but I think you deserve as many as you can get!
