My first award!
Thank you to Nina at Youloveityoudo, for nominating me for my first award! It is the Versatile Bloggers Award and I am really chuffed to get it. Nina is quite new to blogging but has some lovely stuff (I am particularly in love with her VW campervan cushion!)
So the rules of the VBA are that I must nominate 15 other bloggers to receive this award. In no particular order (and with apologies if you have already been nominated elsewhere!), here are my nominees:
Hand Knitted Things
Fan my Flame
Easy makes me happy!
Teeny weeny design
Maximum Rabbit Designs
Some of these blogs I have visited many times, but some are new to me ... all are full of inspiring posts and insights into some crafty minds!
The next thing I have to do is tell you seven things about me:
I live in the most northerly town on the British mainland. I can see the Orkneys from here!
As a child and a teenager I was an actress, appearing in several children's TV programmes, soap operas and even a pop video!
I was taught to knit by my next-door neighbour's granny. She was very patient when it came to sorting out dropped stitches and too-tight tension.
I have had many different jobs, including manager at Harrods in London and auxiliary coastguard.
I have rather eclectic tastes in music and am a big fan of Kate Bush and Bat for Lashes. And Debussy.
I have a degree in Behavioural Sciences. Not terribly relevant to crafting!
I have lived in 14 different places, including an island with a population of 32.
Thank you for reading, I'm now off to add my VBA button to my blog and pass on the good news to all my nominees. Have a great weekend.
