One Lovely Blog AwardJuly 16, 2012
So lovely to come back from Palm Cove to a nomination for a One Lovely Blog Award.
So thank you so much to Home, Heart and Hook for the nomination … it really is lovely to be recognised by your peers.
There are a number of rules attached to accepting the award. They are :
1. Add the award to your blog. TICK
2. Thank the blogger(s) who gave it to you. TICK
3. Mention 7 random things about yourself. HARDER BUT TICK
I have knitted for most of my life and love playing and creating things with yarn
I am always (always) distracted by other crafty pursuits and have a list as long as my arm of things I would like to try but have no time for.
I am a real gadget girl … the inanimate love of my life is my Babylock Embellishing Machine
I love using colour in my work but find myself constantly pulled to a more monochromatic pallet. I have to push myself to mix it up and am envious of those people who can do this naturally
I am grateful to my wonderful sister-in-law Margaret to constantly pushes me to create … and loves creating with me … we are good for each other (most of the time)
I prefer to make things for other people than myself
I have discovered late in life that I want to travel
