Amazing!

I never thought of my blog as anything very special. Actually, I usually operate from the idea that nobody really reads it at all. Every once in a while, I am temporarily separated from that idea for a few moments, but that is all. I write primarily to please myself. I am absolutely ecstatic that Amy from A Quilting Sheep would give me this award.

Aw, Shucks! I am truly surprised and honored. Thanks, Amy!
Now, for this award, I am to link back to the person who gave me the award (see above), tell 7 interesting things about myself and give the award to 7 bloggers that I admire and think do a beautiful job.
Here goes....
7 interesting things about me--
1. I have been married to hubby for 23 years this June. He is such a blessing to me!
2. I have 1 adopted child and 1 biological child (or "home grown," as Amy put it on her blog)
3. I have a degree in Creative Writing with a minor in Biology (hence the need to have a blog as a writing outlet).
4. My oldest son has Asperger's Syndrome, a type of High Functioning Autism.
5. I made my first quilt in 1988 for my hubby on our first anniversary. It's terrible!
6. The next two quilts I made were for my parents on their 25th wedding anniversary and for my in-laws for their 25th also.
7. I teach English Literature, (sometimes) Science, and Latin at a private Christian school.
7 bloggers that I would like to recognize with this award--
1. Karin at A Thread of Red. She keeps my LQS blog up in high style!
3. Pat at Silver Thimble Quilts. She makes me laugh!
4. Andrea at Welsh Quilter.
5. Heather at Quiltin' Like Crazy.
6. Michelle at L7 Quilt Co.
7. Edna at Needling Things.
