I was given the Sunshine Award and the Liebster award recently by Bundana and Heather also gave me The Liebster Award. I am certain however, that Heather is just trying to get a particular piece of fabric from me. I can be bribed people. Awards work, as does cash, sewing books I don't already own, or Burda magazines and horsehair braid, (not that I have a need for it, I just want some) which I can't find locally. Just saying.
The Sunshine Award
The Sunshine Award I have already received, but I have no idea how to put the picture on my blog page. To be honest I haven`t tried, I expected the first time I was given the award to be a one off and it would never happen again so it wouldn't matter.
Edited May 17 3:55
The first time I received The Sunshine Award I nominated the required/suggested 5 people and somehow it doesn't seem right to nominate another 5, but a couple of the people I gave the award to the last time didn't play (no criticism implied), and KC has asked for a trade, she already has The Liebster Award, but not the Sunshine Award.
So without Further Ado! I hereby bestow The Sunshine Award upon :
KC from The Sewcratic Method. I suspect we are twins separated at birth. With one exception she knits. Well too. I only knit simple things badly. In her last post everything she sewed, I had sewed or it was on my list. If we are as I suspect, twins, I had to nominate her, we are family after all.
Thank you very much Bundana and Heather, it is really lovely to feel valued. Really. No sarcasm at all. I know, it's unusual.
Here are my answers to the Sunshine Award questions.
Favourite Animal: Dogs. Always dogs. We live with four of them and often take care of friends dogs when they go away.
Favourite Number: 3. That is my name in numerology.
Favourite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Can't have just one. Earl Grey Tea, French Roast Coffee and Pepsi.
Facebook or Twitter: Neither, Pinterest. I find Facebook sometimes a little too much like being in High School. No offense intended to anyone.
My Passion: Dogs, reading and sewing.
Getting or Giving Presents: Giving. There is no better feeling than when you find the perfect gift for someone and they love it.
Favourite Pattern: The last one I looked at. Usually a Marcy Tilton pattern.
Favourite Day of the Week: .A day that my husband and I have off together, there aren't many of these.
Favourite Flower: Old Fashioned Pink Roses, but they have to be fragrant. Lavender is my second favorite.
Favourite celebrity role model: Katherine Hepburn. She was stylish, smart and lived her life exactly the way she chose. Love her.
The Liebster Award
If you receive the award, you should:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top five picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Hope that the people you've sent the award to forward it to their five favourite bloggers and keep it going!
My picks for the Liebster Award are:
Dixie from Needle and Brush. She sews like a dream, loves Marcy Tilton patterns as much as I do, but she actually sews them instead of just fondling them like me. She also works at Sawyer Brook , so she knows her fabrics. She is also the only person I know of besides me who has a copy of Heart Steps, by Julia Cameron. I love that book.
Andrea from Satin Bird Designs. She is in the midst of a fitting challenge right now and I am enjoying watching her
Steph from 3 Hours Past the Edge of the World. I am pretty sure she has more than 200 followers, but I am giving her the award anyway. She is an amazing and generous sewist, her video on using a binding foot helped me tremendously. I learn something from her with every post.
Mary Nanna from Make It Smirk. She always make me smirk when I read her blog. I fully expect she won't have the time to forward this award on, as these days she seems to be confined to the kitchen. I always enjoy reading about her latest creations and her fitting issues.
That's all folks. Thank you again Heather and Bundana. Heather, could you email me at the e-address above? Thanks.
PS-does anyone have an idea how to get the award thingys on my blog?
