Blog Award

Today is the second Blog action day where thousands of bloggers talk about poverty. There is always something we can do to help no matter how small it might seem. It's quite incredible in this day and age the level of poverty there is in the world.

Apart from contributing to various charities when I can I have been sponsoring a little boy from Djilor, Senegal. Contributions don't go to the child directly they go to help the village where he lives to help with schooling and community projects. If you would like to sponsor a child then you can get information from Actionaid. Every little helps.

My sincere thanks to Susan (Random Blethers) for the above blog award.

I need to nominate seven other blogs so here goes:


It's always tough choosing blogs to give awards to and I usually just include everyone as I enjoy reading and am inspired by so many blogs I read. Time at the PC has been scarce but life is good and I am busy in my studio just nothing I can share at the moment.

I was tickled pink yesterday when I visited Kaleidoscope quilt shop. I was asked if I was the "famous" Carol Clasper - how funny is that? Anyway I said I wasn't sure about famous but I was Carol Clasper. I wonder what I am famous for ............ should I be worried?

I am busy trying to get my Module 6 work finished as it has to be handed in by the end of this month.

I was gifted a lovely selection of fat quarters from one of my students in my Thursday afternoon class on her return from New Zealand. I wanted to make something with the fabrics and so I have been busy with a French Braid quilt. I have used her fabrics and added a few from my stash. The piecing is finished I just have the sashing and borders to add and of course the quilting.

I am planning on putting black separator bands and a purple border.

Thank you for dropping by.

Hi Carol
Just hopping around my favourite blogs trying to catch up after yet another enforced absence - just can't seem to keep on top of it these days.
And to find that you have given me an award was a lovely suprise.
Thanks Carol, much appreciated.
