How Delightful !

I've been given a lovely surprise by Tina of Tiny Bear - I'm proud to have received my first ever Blog Award !

This one seems to have originated in Portuguese ; "Proximidade" loosely translates as neighbourhood , or possibly community . The spirit of this award is all about forging friendly links amongst bloggers and highlighting people who post with care and attention , whilst having an active interest in others - or (put more eloquently) "investing in the riches of neighbourhood and community "

Here is the official accompanying text :-

" The authors say that blogs who receive this award are exceedingly charming . This blog invests in proximity in space , time and relationships . These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends .
They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandisement . Our hope is that when the ribbons of these awards are cut , even more friendships will be propagated . Please give your kind attention to these writers !
Deliver this award to 8 bloggers who will choose 8 more , and include this cleverly written text in to the body of the award . "

I'm feeling very honoured to have been chosen , and completely chuffed to think anyone might perceive this little blog as "charming" ! And look ; even the sun is shining outside my window with solicitous indulgence !

Here are the 8 blogs I have chosen to pass on the award to , although there are so very many deserving others . Please be so kind as to pay them all a friendly visit :0)

All Bear - Paula Carter

Pandy Potter - Amanda

Bear Treasures - Melanie Jayne

Shantock Bears - Elanor Shantock

Fenbeary Folk - Sue Pemblington

Raggy Rat - Cat Owen

Ellen Borggreve Design - Ellen borggreve

Boot Button Bears - Christine Child

Right , must get back to more sewing now ,
