Nominated for blogger award, Me...??

I'm a new blogger and imagine my surprise when I log on and discover I'm nominated for the Kreativ Blogger Award. I don't feel as if I deserve this award. My nomination came from fellow sewist Beachgirl, who I must say creates some remarkable things. Thanks Beachgirl! Check out
OK, I'm suppose to tell you seven things about myself that you don't know. First off...
I think I'm the oldest kid on the block! Most of my fellow sewing bloggers are young moms with small kids. They love to design and sew for their young ones. The only difference... I design and sew for my grandkids...right? So there U go!

1. I have been married to my husband for 49 years. I have one daughter,and one son. They have blessed me with four granddaughters,one grandson and one great-granddaughter.

2. I was a stay-at-home when my kids were young. My husband worked at our local paper mill. Well, his union went on strike. I had to get a job... for a short period of time I worked in a sewing factory, by the way... hardest work I've ever done! This is where I made friends with the industrial sewing machines. Gotta love 'em!

3. In my former life for 20+ years, I was the owner of a gift shop. The shop consumed
most of my time. Some of the lines I had...Vera Bradley, Pandora, Arthur Court and
many other gift lines. A fun shop!

4. I had a line of my designs represented at The Atlanta Apparel Mart.

5. Sold the shop to my daughter and her husband. Now the shop consumes her life... :)

6. After we sold the shop I now had time to sew. After a hiatus from sewing for many
years. I pleasantly discovered that the internet had opened up a whole new world as
far a sewing, fabrics etc. I turned a guest bedroom into a sewing studio.

7. I have six machines in my sewing studio. Industrial serger, Industrial single
needle machine, Babylock coverstitch, Hobbylock serger (set up for rolled hems),
Janome 300E embroidery machine and a Memory Craft 6000 (set up for buttonholes)

It seems like I shared a lot with you, anyway

Now I'm suppose to nominate 7 fellow bloggers. So here goes
