Blog Awards and a Present

I have an embarrassment of riches today. First my thanks to Robin who sent me this lovely crochet kit. I won this as part of Dewey's Knit-a-Long. Thanks Robin! It's gorgeous.

Next my thanks to Sheri @ A Novel Menagerie gave me The Sisterhood Award. Thank you so much for thinking of me. The award reminds me of the Traveling Pants.

The rules are as follows:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate up to 10 blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude!
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Remember to link to the person from whom you received your award.

Here are a few blogging sisters:

Rebecca Reads
Stephanie's Confessions of a Bookaholic
Stephanie's Written World
The Book Lady (Rebecca)
Tripping Through Lucidity (Andi)
Trish's Reading Nook
My Middle Name Is Patience (Carrie)
Reading Room (Gautami)
The Written World (Kelly)
So Many Precious Books,... (Teddy)

Also thanks to Alyce @ At Home With Books gave me the Proximity Award which I did here.

Amy @ My Friend Amy awarded me with The Zombie Chicken Award. This one is hilarious and quite serious as I wouldn't want to aggravate a flock of Zombie Chickens!

The rules:

The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all...

Watch out you 5 for the zombie chickens:

Stuff As Dreams Are Made On
The Book Mine Set
The Book Zombie
Keep It On the DL
Book Line and Sinker

I hope you all enjoy these awards!


  1. Yeah, it is snowing here, too! And, they didn't have a speedy check-out open at the grocery store! That was very not fun!

    Thanks for the award!

  2. Congratulations on your awards. I hope you enjoy the crochet kit - you'll have to share your creation with us.

  3. Can't wait to see what you crochet with the new kit! Thank you so much for the sisterhood award--I'm honored that thought of me. And congrats on all the others as well--you and your blog are fantastic. :)

  4. Congrats on your awards.

    I've got 9 books to raffle.

  5. Congrats to everyone on the awards! Some very deserving bloggers there.

    I like the knitting set. How cool!

  6. OH no! I'm being attacked by Zombie Chickens! :) Thanks Chris...all of those are very well deserved!

  7. I was about to get all huffy about the sexism of the Sisterhood Award (Come on, brothers need a little love- there's so few of us!). But then, you redeemed it with the chicken award. And, if you've ever played "chicken-necktie-sister" (a version of rock-paper-scissors in a remote village in the moutain region of Crete), you'll know that chicken beats sister.

  8. Thank you so much for the award! I blogged about it here:

    Congrats on all the awards you received. You so deserve them!

  10. Congrats on the crochet kit and all your awards! I just wanted to let you know that I am linking to a couple of your old posts that mention The Count of Monte Cristo. I hope that's ok. If not, let me know. Here's the link.

  11. DreamyBee- No problem!

    John- I was thinking of that when I was making my lists. I figured I better give some boys the Zombie Chicken award!

    Onion & Kim- Once I get my latest project finished, I'll start on that one.

    Thanks all for the congrats!

  12. That yarn is scrumptious, it'll be beautiful in that pattern. Congratulations on being part of Dewey's KAL!

    And aw, thanks for the award! I'm in some fabulous company there.

  13. I'm glad you like the kit, Chris! Happy crocheting! And congratulations on the awards!
