A Little Slow to Reply . . .

Dawn Goldsmith from Subversive Stitchers: Women Armed with Needles, was kind enough to pass on a Premio Dardos Award to my site. That was at the end of January. It is now the end of March and I am finally fulfilling my part of this honor. I can be a little slow to reply, probably because I knew how difficult it was going to be to choose.

What is hilarious is that Dawn apologized to her “benefactor” about being  late at accepting, and now I have had to do the same. Sometimes my art projects, writing assignments, class preparations, and emails cause an overload that can be challenging to climb out of. I am not, however, complaining. I am thoroughly enjoying all those aspects of my life.

Given the excellent quality of writing on Subversive Stitchers, I am delighted that Dawn appreciates my own. The Premio Dardos is “bestowed for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing.” I am not sure who instigated the first award by this title, but if I start researching now, I will have to postpone this overdue posting even longer. That said, here are the “rules” Dawn included:

1) Accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and a link to his/her blog
2) Pass the award to another 15 blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment, remembering to contact each of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.

So, I am passing on this award (at long last) to 15 other sites that I thoroughly enjoy reading. Each of them manages to put their personality stamp on their blog in such a way that I have come to feel I “know” them, even though we have not personally met. That would be a worthy goal: to arrange a Premio Dardos Award Party, where we could shake hands with, or hug, the writer/artist who has become a relevant, educational and entertaining part of our lives. My librarian mind has insisted on alphabetical order (discounting articles). Enjoy!

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

    Thanks so much for the award.SLOW. yes that’s me. I will acknowledge and pass it along but it will probably take me a week, I KNOW we are all busy, and have to set priorities and I have three full days of teaching this week for the Texas Contemporary Handweavers, so my fun with recipients will have to wait! I certainly think its really fun and certainly appreciate the notice!
