Versatile Blogger Award

Janet from Entropy Undone has awarded this blog the Versatile Blogger Award.  Janice Elaine Sews was two years old yesterday.  I am honored.  Thank you Janet.

There are rules to accepting this honor:
1. Add the award to your blog
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you.
3. Mention seven random things about yourself. (see below)
4. List the rules.
5. Award to 15 bloggers.
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog

Here are my seven random things.

  1. I've been sewing for nearly 60 years, but quilting for just under 3 years.
  2. Language doesn't bother me.  I'm a bookseller and if a customer ask if a novel has acceptable language, I'm at a loss.  It's just words.
  3. I managed a garage for a few years.   I worked for 15 years in the automotive after-market.  
  4. My first retail job was a manager at Victoria's Secret.   I've worked in retail for over 20 years.  
  5. Bob and I met because we were both active in Scouting in our teens.   We've been married nearly 48 years.
  6. I'm an animal lover.  I love all kinds of animals, but I'm extremely allergic to cats and have to avoid them.  Such a shame.
  7. I'm always shocked when someone thinks I'm nice.
Picking 15 bloggers is tough.  If I don't pick you, it's because I was limited to just 15.  Here they are in no particular order:

  1. It was fun reading the random things about you. Thanks for the award Jan...and...you are nice :)

  2. what amazing random things!! You should write a book!
    It's my 5th wedding anniversary this week - I hope to be married as long as you :)
    Oh and I think you're very nice (did I shock you!)
    Thanks for the award :)

  3. I think it is funny that you are shocked by the complement; the only reason I think it surprises you is think of you as a person free to speak her mind, is that correct? Gee, you haven't run any one off, Jan. I think you are a nice gal, too, so there! lol thank you ~

  4. OMG - Thank you soo much for awarding me! I have only a few followers and have never put myself "out there" in blogland so I am really amazed that you even knew my little blog existed!

    I just have to add that I am no longer at http://tamstersshowtell.blogspot.com/

    but my new address is http://happyishappydoes.blogspot.com/

    Thank you, Tammy
