For a humble little blog like ours who has been rather s l o w at getting those posts out or even finishing the projects than need posting, we are so happy and even more humbled to be nominated…..THREE TIMES by some seriously lovely folk!
We have received the Versatile Blogger awards from Jill over at crafts by the sea who’s blog is great and who is a super talented, knowledgeable and experienced needleworker!
The One Lovely Blog award came from the sweet Marissa at Colouring with Yarn who has one of the most interesting blogs I’ve read and whose colours are incredible.
The other Versatile Blogger Award comes from the lovely and whimsical Millie from millie on her world who’s paper mache tea cups are exquisite!
Go and have a look at these ladies NOW NOW NOW!!!
*****Thank you lovely ladies for nominations, we are in great company!*****
Now, the rules are as follows:
1. Add the award to your blog.
2. Thank the blogger(s) who gave it to you.
3. Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4. List the rules.
5. Award to 15 bloggers.
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.
I think I have successfully completed numbers 1, 2 and 4 so I will proceed to number 3.
I think it may be cheating to list “7 things” again, especially as I have done so in a previous post but what the heck, I’ve seen others do it! Seeing as though it’s two of us, I thought I would do things a little differently:
Capricorn – clever, conscientious Sagittarius – clumsy, foot-in-mouth issues
Tall and graceful Not so tall, see above
Quiet and composed Loud and mostly messy

Middle name Anne Middle name Barbara
Latest project Latest project
(finished in nano seconds!) (beanie for hubby for Father’s Day…oops)
Nick name VIX Nickname Mac
And now, for the best part….here are some of the inspiring bloggers out there who we would like to nominate for the ONE LOVELY BLOG award, in no particular order: (apart from the ones who nominated us of course!!!!!)
12. Bear Loves Dove
14. bhb kidstyle
And finally, last week my daughter lost one of her best friends, Sarah, rather suddenly and very unexpectedly to a rare blood disease which she was supposed to grow out of. I would like to pay tribute to a beautiful soul who will live on forever through those who have been touched by her
Here is a picture taken at her memorial on Friday, at which 100 pink balloons with messages of love were released into the sky….
