What a surprise!

I was away for a couple days and when I get back I find a big surprise. Not 1 but 2 awards. I'm a little tickled because I am so new to this blogging thing. But Thank You  to  Dorothy from Hooks 'n Grannies and to Little Orphan Skein for the Award.

Now here are the rules, and what I have to do.
1.Add the award to your blog.
2.Thank the blogger(s) who gave it to you.
3.Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4.List the rules.
5.Award to 15 bloggers.
6.Inform each of the 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.

7 Things about me...

1. I am almost 5 foot tall.. being short is not one of my favorite things.
2.I live in SW Minnesota, and we have had very little snow this year. Yeah
3.I Love thrift shops  and garage sales.
4.I like to go play bingo on Thursday nights.
5.I want to learn to make the little crochet critters. Amigurumi,  think my grandchildren would love them.
6.One of my favorite web sites is www.crochetpatterncentral.com  If you haven't been there check it out lots of good things.
7.I love to read and I got a Nook tablet for Christmas.

My biggest  challenge will be the finding 15 people to pass the award to so if I give to someone who has already been selected sorry and I don't know if you would have to pass this on or not.
