Exciting News

Wow, I recieved my first blogging award from fab blogger Jo at Pickle Lily. seems the courtesy now is to make a post linking back to the person who gave you the award (which I've gladly done above), share 7 random things about yourself and award 7 recently discovered bloggers with this award, contacting them to let them know they have won.

This seems to be a lovely way of introducing fellow bloggers/craftspeople and allowing those of us who are just starting out blogging chance to meet like minded folk so here's my contribution

7 random things about myself
- I love to eat lamb and chocolate (though not together)!
- I adore butterflies
- I didn't learn to sew (apart from the odd little thing at School) until I was 32!
- I'm a secret fabric addict and have it all stacked up in my dining room
- I love to ski though I'm a real scaredy cat!
- I love to sew using my machine but am the worst hand sewer in the World!
- Kind of linked to the one above but because I try to avoid hand sewing at all costs I've become a bit of a sewing machine foot queen! (post soon to follow on my current fave a bias binding foot which is saving me so much time I could burst with joy)!!!!

Now I would like to pass this award onto a few other bloggers (too many to choose from so sorry if you are a follower and not included I was trying to keep the list to new or small is blogs)

The Ladies at Yorkshire Made
Jennifer at Mere Made
Kelly at Sewing in No Man's Land
Fiona at The Sewing Directory
Wendy at Made with Pixie Dust
Kate at Tour Widow Moves North

Happy Reading and Thanks again Jo for your award!

  2. OK First of all congratulations on your award! Next thanks so much for your wonderful words of advice, I'm definitely going to explore your option, I'll let you know how I get on. Finally I am so looking forward to your post on 'feet' - you know what I mean, I'd love to know why your current one is such a time saver x

  3. Aw! I'm thrilled and honored to receive the versatile blogger award from you! Thanks so much! I am excited to pay this one forward!!
