Favorite Blog Award

Jo gave me this award.  Thank you so much!  I never dreamed I'd be anyones favorite blog!
Rules for Accepting the Award:
1. Do a post about the person who awarded you, and their blog.
2. Give the award to four or five of your favorite blogging friends, tell about them and their blog, and leave a comment on their blog.
3. Answer the ten random questions

Jo's blog is called "Scraps from my Workbasket.." I "met" her a couple of months ago when she would comment and we would talk about costuming and such.  Her blog is mostly sewing things, but she does post about other interesting things as well.  She didn't have her own blog till quite recently though, and as I just found out on her blog, It was Lucie and I that convinced her to start one!  Wow...that is cool.

It may seem a little odd to award "four or five" people as your "favorite", so here is what favorite means in this context.  It means that I love your blog.  You've never posted about anything that I thought was boring, I come away from your blog and I don't feel like I've wasted time, I feel like I've learned something.  And...when I get on the computer, you're the first RSS feed I check! I've got to narrow it down...
Now I award:

I've been reading Lucie's blog for over a year now, and it has been so fun.  She posts about crafts and books mostly, two things that I enjoy very much.  She has two blogs, so be sure to check both out.

Her blog is "Feminine Farmgirl".  It is such an encouraging blog, and she is doing some posts on Thankfulness, which I assume is for Thanksgiving coming up.  She also posts about her sewing projects, which is very nice.  (I don't think I've ever commented, and I don't follow, just use RSS feeds, so she probably doesn't even know I exist :-)

Her blog "Ribbons of Light" is so inspiring.  It is mostly about period drams and has amazing costume pictures from al sorts of movies.  If it weren't for her, I wouldn't have even known that Emma 2009 existed. =)

Eager Hands is a great sewing blog.  She has so many fresh ideas and is such an inspiration.

Now for the random questions:
1. Have you ever ridden an elephant?
2. Have you ever eaten squid?
No, I almost did, but with the little suction cup looking things still on it, there was NO way I was putting it in my mouth.  Perhaps if it was fried or something...
3. What is something crazy you have done with your best friend?
Half the things I do with my two best friends are crazy (they're sisters).  Hhmmmm...something we do quite often is dress up in our salwars (indian tunic and pants thingys) and go shopping or the prayer meeting in them.
4. Have you ever held and alligator?
5. Have you ever let a snake slither through your fingers?
No, I haven't had the chance.
6. What is your first and foremost dream?
Well, if the Lord doesn't provide a husband, and doesn't provide children, I want to run an orphanage.  Then I can take care of and teach hundreds of children.  (yes, I'm a tad crazy)
7. What is your dream vacation?
I'm not sure...somewhere gorgeous, but not to hot or cold.  Any ideas?
8. What are your goals for this week?
How about next week, since it is Saturday?  Finish all my school required, have a good thanksgiving and have a good performance of the Messiah
9. What is the funniest movie you have ever seen?
I don't know
10. What is your favorite song?
Right now, it is Palladio, by Karl Jenkins
