Well after a rainy Wednesday, today has been a real scorher. The Sun definately had his hat on much to my boys enjoyment. We have had a lovely couple of days with my sister visiting with the highlight being me loosing in a water fight to my 6 yr old … must remember to thank his God mummy for the ultimate water pistols she bought the boys.
I even managed to finish off some more flowers today whilst lapping up the sunshine. I’m so pleased with the colours and cant wait to put them together as bunting. Still need to decide whether it will be 1 bunting or 2 with lots of different colours.
But what has been very humbling and most exciting is the 2 awards Hookyqueen has been nominated for.
To put this into presective i have been crocheting for 11 months and started this blog after my biggest fan, my best friend Lucy, suggest i should start one. I never expected it to go anywhere so to recieve these nominations has truely made my crocheting day.
the first nomination is for the WordPress Family Blog Award. The nomination was from the Verónica at http://agujasblog.com/2013/07/29/i-love-giving-out-blog-awards/
In recognition of this i am going to nominate 10 blogs that have impacted on my WordPress experience, so here goes:
I love these blogs and reccomend them.
The secondly I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Judit at Monster Yarns (http://monsteryarns.wordpress.com/) Again i feel so grateful and over the moon for this.
So thank you so much.
In the tradition of this award I need to answer the questions asked by Judit, and here they are:
1. Knitting or Crochet and why?
I love my hook, I cant describe why other than my hand just seems to fit the hook. I have been knittin but i have to use circular short needles as i lack the ability to deal with these long sticks. Also i loved how quickly i picked it up and the variety of stitches i can do.
2. Cats or Dogs and why?
Dogs – I have 2 old, soppy cavaliers who are my fur babies. Im very allergic to cats so that really explains it.
3. Three items you couldn’t be without on a Desert Island.
Well provided my boys & pups were with me it would be hooks, hand dyed yarn and my ipad as i think i would struggle without candy crush.
4. Do you have brothers/sisters or are you an only child?
I have 1 younger sister.
5. Why blog?
My best friend, who is my biggest fan, suggested it and after toying with the idea for a while i decided to give it a go. I love sharing my work and seeing others beautiful work.
6. Are you a glass-half-empty or glass-half-full person?
Really depends. I try to be half full but occassionally am a half empty person, although luckily not that often.
7. Should a man turn the toilet seat down or do you not care?
Always down. My hubby is well trained as is my youngest. Unfortunately my 6 yr old needs to work on it.
8. Do you still hand-write letters?
Yes, although they are usually letters to school and little happy letters to my boys. I do make the eldest hand write thank you notes.
So that is it. A big thank you to all that read my blog, i really do appreciate it. And a huge thank you to Verconica and Judit for my nominations.
