Brillante Weblog 2008
Thanks to Myfanwy, also known as Sassy from Sassalynne.etsy.com, I find myself in the presence of six other great artists whom she nominated for this award from her website:
I have long admired "Sassy's" beautiful work and colors of her hand-dyed threads used for various types of embroidery or felting; something which, as I am learning from her, is a most fascinating process. Although I have been doing embroidery for about 40 years, everytime she would list another one of her beautiful threads in our Forum, "Boomer's" I would think what could I do with that, and would continually ask if it could also be used for knitting. Well, this week, Myfanwy granted my wish, not only by listing something I could use for knitting, but giving me a little "head's up" on a beautiful viscose chenille yarn, using her technique of dying with Fibre Reactive Yarns. The blending of the colors, Magenta, Sage, Lavender, Wisteria, and Pear with a touch of mink, touched me as soon as I saw it. I barely gave her time to list it before I purchased the chenille yarn. I am anxiously waiting it's arrival, which is from the UK (so I have to wait a few extra days), and then can't wait to get started creating something as beautiful as the colors Sassy created.
So once again, I have Myfanwy (Sassy to us Boomer's) to thank for putting me in the company of such other talented artists. As part of my now being nominated to the "Brillante Weblog-Primo 2008" - I in turn have to nominate seven artists who I feel are deserving of joining the rest of us who merit this award - I admit it is truly difficult to narrow it down to seven artists that I would like to pass this on to, since there are so many talented artists that I have met and made friends with on Etsy. Anyway here goes (some that I would love to add are already listed in Sassy's blog, so I will continue from there:
Now that I have passed the "Brilliante Weblog-Primo 2008" onto each of you, you in turn must do the same by following the instructions below:
1. Add the logo of the Award to your blog.
2. Add a link to the Person who nominated you for the Award.
3. Nominated 7 other blog members.
4. Add links to their blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message (or convo) for those you nominated on their blog.
Don't forget to check the blogs that I nominated, each one a well deserving artist. I wish I could have nominated about 25 more, but I am sure you will find those who deserve to be on this list!!
Thanks Sassy for thinking of me in your list of nominations.
