One Flower Wednesday, FMQ and Blogger Award

This is Flat Stanley showing you my hexies....
My grandniece sent this to my DD and she is to take Stanley around to interesting places, take pictures, pick up souvenirs and write about it all - Have any of you done this before?  Well, I thought Stanley could visit with all of you who stop by, he'd like to meet people from other areas before being sent back to Ohio.

I also took a FMQ class last Saturday and we started by writing our name and straight lines
then crooked straight lines...I could do that

then we filled in a leaf and tried all sorts of other shapes

Now, I just need lots of time to practice.

Last week my new blogging friend Ida over at "My Sister made me do it..." nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.  Thanks Ida!  Now I get to post this too cool button on my blog:
From what I understand, the Versatile Blogger Award was created to introduce bloggers to each other and to promote quality blogs that the nominated blogger and their followers may not have discovered otherwise.

If you are nominated, you are awarded the Versatile Blogger Award through that nomination.
 To continue the trend of this cool Award you should, in turn, nominate other fellow bloggers and in the same post add the Versatile Blogger Award Button and also thank the blogger who nominated you with a link back to their blog. 

Inform each of your own nominees by posting a comment on their blog.
Here is my list of nominees, I hope you will check out each of their blogs:

Mary I Piece 2 Mary
Dara  Moi's Creations
Val  Val Spiers Sews 
Jinnie  Lots of Fabric 2
Katie  Call Me Crazy

    Happy Easter
