Leibster season

Here at the tail end of awards season, I’m honored to have received my very first blog award! The amazing Amy of Sew Well, in a delightfully described Bloscar ceremony (get it? Blog Oscar? Bloscar? yeah, I know my coinages are never as good as I think they are), accepted her award and handed it off to five blogs, one of which was me! Thanks, Amy, I’m thrilled to accept the Liebster Blog Award!

I’m particularly honored to receive this award from Amy, who has a skill, dedication, and attention to detail that I am pretty certain I will never possess, and all her garments simply reek of quality craftsmanship and also just plain ol’ prettiness. Also, we’re kind of neighbors in real life (all right, we’re in the same state, but in the vast land of the internet that totally counts), and many of her fabulous fabrics come from a little fabric store in my city!

So now my task is to pass it on, and nominate my favorite blogs that not too many folks have discovered yet. Ostensibly these should be blogs with less than 200 followers, but of course that’s notoriously difficult to determine, so apologies if I’ve vastly underestimated your popularity… Also, a couple of you have already received the award from another discerning blogger, but I’ve made my peace with having extremely good taste (and always being late to the party) and I’m nominating you anyway. This also reminds me that I need to update my favorite blog links on my sidebar to include some newly discovered awesomeness! Anyway, here are my nominees, in no particular order:

All you ladies inspire me with your ideas, finished makes, and most of all your unique voices and delightful senses of humor! Thank you for always making me laugh and brightening my day whenever I check your blog!

If you’d like to pass on the award, the terms appear to be: thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog, link back to the blogger who presented the award to you, copy and paste the blog award on your blog, present the Liebster Blog Award to five blogs (with 200 followers or less), and let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment.

Thanks again to Amy, and thank you to this whole great, supportive, crazy awesome sewing community that I’m still discovering!

      I tried to leave you a comment, but blogger wasn’t having it. Glad you stopped by then!

  2. Thanks for throwing another lobster in! It’s a feast in sewing blog land, complete with stinky cheese & beer 🙂 Also, I am loving your Vogue dress in the previous post! I never get to it, but have fabric picked out and everything.

    Rachel, if you happen to stop by, I can’t seem to leave a comment on your website (Blogger won’t let me prove I’m not a robot… maybe cause I am?), but I wanted to say that I nominated you (obvs), and though I just found your blog, I read through all your archives and you made me laugh so hard my husband thought there was something wrong with me. Keep it up, you’re awesome! Feel free to play along and pass the award on, or just bask in the internet glory!

    • Hi Aleah! Thank you so much for the kind words (if they aren’t directed at some other Rachel at Darling Autodidact. Surely they must be)! It’s so weird that Blogger didn’t believe you about not being an android: WordPress is usually the platform that does that to me! I wonder if it’s a problem with my settings.

      Such company to be in, though: all the other folks’ blogs look amazing. I’m having a ton of fun exploring them!
