I'm so touched - Elizabeth at Florence's Attic has nominated me for a 'You Make My Day' award - how cool! I was tempted to go into a very bad Sally Field Oscars style speech but I'll resist the urge for now! I've googled the rules and apparently I have to pass the award onto 10 other blogs that I love - only 10??? OK, so be it. In no particular order here are my 10:
Buttonberry - it's hard to find groovy, gorgeous, low cost fabric in the UK - but Emma, Lisa and Jo at Buttonberry have a fab range and a lovely blog to boot.
Laura at Cupcakes for Clara has a lovely blog full of lots of gorgeous pictures of her soft creations.
Florence at Flossie Teacakes knows how to give good blog! I love her tales of crafting with her kids - lovely pictures too.
Tiff at Folded Gingham - I love following your decorating exploits and am totally envious of your house!
Marmadaisy at I Like To Make Stuff - another fan of the vintage button ring. I love your style and your tutorials.
Marie At Knitted Gems - You were pretty much the first person to start leaving comments on my blog and let me know that I wasn't alone out here. I love your blog and your knitting knows no bounds!
Jodie at Ric Rac - I love everything about your blog, but especially the 1 hour bag tutorial - total genius- thank you!
Christine at Sew Christine - Your tutorials rock!
Laurie at The Wooden Spool - I love checking into your blog, there's something about the all the pretty colors that just makes me go ooh!
Blair at Wise Craft - I just love your creativity - now if you will only post a tutorial for how you made that fantastic charm bracelet I can die a happy woman!
Oh is that 10 already? can I just give a special mention to Vicky at Knitting Dragonflies? I love reading your blog and you always leave such lovely comments on mine - it's a mutual blog love thing!
I'm really struggling to keep it to just 10 (ok,11!) as there are so many other lovely, inspirational blogs out there and so many supportive and talented people out there. If I've stopped by and left a comment on your blog then you're automatically in my hall of fame and I thank you because you make my day!
Phew! I enjoyed doing that - so nice to do the blog love thing! Thank you again to Elizabeth for nominating me - it goes without saying that you get my special 'you make my day' nomination - you are my quilting inspiration (I will learn to do it very soon but you may find yourself bombarded with questions while I go through that difficult 'first quilt' stage!) Thanks again.
