It has finally landed at Tot Hill. Thank you to 2 of my favorite blog friends..

First from Cath at

Now for the rules....

So here are my fab 5. This was hard as many of my friends have already received this and some of my blog friends are way over 200 followers.

1-Myra at
   Myra was one of my first friends in the blog community. She is an amazing stitcher and does fabulous sewing. Check out her bird on her blog. I am so lucky to have her as a friend.

2-Robin at
     Robin is an amazing power stitcher and very talented scrapbooker. Her blog shows her wonderful finished and her scrapbook layouts for her travels and events in her life. I am so lucky to have robin and her Mom as dear friends. Love you guys :)

3- Barb at
      I think Barb and I are sisters separated at birth. Her blog reminds me of mine( I think she is a better housekeeper though :) I love seeing pics of the area she lives in and of her wonderful stitching.

4- Christina at
        Christina is a young Mom who does amazing stitching and is in the midst of a BAP challenge. Her finishing is wonderful.

5- Penny at
    Another wonderful stitcher and sister of the heart.  Wishing you all the best dear friend.

That was tough. There are so many other blogger friends out there, thanks for the friendship and daily inspiration you give me.

Now 5 random things about me...

1. I like pickled beets.

2.I met Rich at the mall, how 80's is that. Well it was like 1986.

3. I did not change my name when I got married. My last name seemed a lot easier than a Polish last name. If I could change my first name I would, I don't really like it.

4. I was an exchange student my senior year in High School. I spent a year in High School in a city north of Tokyo. I was the only blond in my school.

5. I love pancakes, especially banana pancakes, but the bananas must be sliced and cooked in the pancakes. If you have ever been to a diner with me you know that this is very serious.

I have really been enjoying everyone's 5 things about themselves.

Have a great evening!

Awww! You two met in a mall!! How cute is that! I love pickled beets too!! Love reading about you!!!

Cath said...

Thanks Chris , I've just started following four new blogs ,lol. Guess that's how it's meant to be.

Margaret said...

Congratulations on the award! I loved reading the 5 facts. That must have been so cool going to high school in Tokyo for a year! Are you fluent in Japanese??

Carol said...

Congratulations on your award, Chris--I always enjoy visiting your blog :) And what fun to read a bit more about you... I love pancakes, too, but have never tried them with bananas. Will add that to my list :)

Christina said...

Thank you for the award Chris - it means a lot to me. I loved reading the facts about you! Hey, there's nothing wrong with the name 'Chris'! lol.
I too kept my surname when I married my husband. My surname is very unusual, and although I was teased about it during my school years, I've grown to really love it! My husband's surname is one of the 5 most common in England so I wasn't that fussed about taking it! ;0)
I haven't been to the New Kids/Backstreet Boys concert yet - it's April 26th. I'll tell you all about it!

Catherine said...

So much fun reading your facts!!

Penny said...

Chris, I feel honored that you would choose me for this award. Thank you!
I enjoyed learning five new things about you. :)
