I've been awarded!

I feel so special! Thank you Rhoda!
To accept this award, here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award.

2. Paste the award on your blog.

3. Link to the person who nominated you.

4. Tell 7 interesting things about yourself..

5. Nominate 7 blogs and post links

6. Leave a comment on your nominated blogs to let them know.

Now for my 7 interesting(?) things.. I hope I can think of that many. Sorry if they aren't too interesting. lol

1.  I was in a pretty serious car accident when I was in high school- I was not driving- I was thrown from the vehicle and had a skull fracture, among other things. Due to this I have a small metal plate in my head. (No, it does not set off metal detectors. )
2. I have been cross-stitching since I was about 13 years old.  I learned needlepoint and latch-hooking before that but I don't remember how old I was.
3. I skipped kindergarten.
4. I am an avid Jane Austen fan- sadly when I visited England in the early 90's I wasn't yet.  Now I want to go back and visit all the Jane Austen places- her home, the Jane Austen Centre, etc.
5. I have lived in 4 different states.
6.In high school I was voted "most likely to own a night club." ha!
7. When I was younger my grandpa called me Tracey Michelob(instead of Michele), "Mick" or "Micky" for short, and I have never liked beer.

OK, so maybe not so interesting.. sorry! lol

Now to nominate - this was very difficult as I read SOOOO many great blogs- so please don't be hurt if you don't see your name!!
