I don’t usually respond to chain mail, but I’ll make an exception for this: A fellow wordpress blogger, Moke at http://mlwegener.wordpress.com/ nominated Crochet Thread for the Liebster Award.
This “award” originated in 2010 on blogspot. Over time, it’s grown from the original terms and conditions.
The word “Liebster” means: preferred above others. It’s basically a pat on the back from someone who finds your blog worthwhile.
So let me respond by saying, “Thanks, Moke!”
