A new award!

Hi again everyone!

Just popping in to say I’ve just been nominated for The Very Inspiring Blogger award πŸ™‚

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. AddΒ The Very Inspiring Blogger AwardΒ to your post.
3. Share 7 things about yourself.
4. Pass the award on to 10 nominees.
5. Include this set of rules.
6. Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blog.

On this occasion I will try to follow the rules for acceptance πŸ˜‰ No special reason, just that I have the day off, yey!

First of all I’d like to thank Julie at Crazy Wonderful LifeΒ for nominating my blog. Julie has lots of hobbies including sewing which attracted me to reading her blog. Take a look for yourselves πŸ™‚

Here is the award logo:

Seven things about myself:

1. I used to play trumpet in my school brass band.

2. I’m beginning to prefer crochet to knitting because there is only one stitch to drop, it is much easier to frog and it grows faster.

3. I consider housework a waste of a life.

4. I love white and milk chocolate but don’t like dark chocolate.

5. I fill every minute of every day and would sew 24/7 if I could.

6. I only go to shops if there is absolutely no alternative. Internet shopping for me please!

7. It makes me happy when other people πŸ™‚

I’d like to nominate the following blogs. If they don’t wish to accept the award, I won’t be offended in any way. It is their choice. Hopefully they will gain some new followers from the links here which are in no particular order:

Glitter Not Gold


Sew Much Choice

Treadle Music

Rasta Stitches

She Sews to Conquer

Linny J Creations

Playing at Craft

A Wee Bit Random

Projects by Mtetar

Enjoy the weekend πŸ™‚

    Congratulations to you! And a wholehearted thank you πŸ™‚

  6. Thank you very much for the nomination, sorry it has taken me so long to respond, I’ve been on holiday and only just got back…was a lovely thing to return to.

  7. Oh my gosh!
    I didn’t get a chance to look at your blog (outside of the wordpress reader) in a while so this was a surprise!
    I’ll have to tell the other girls πŸ™‚
    We’re really flattered! πŸ˜€
    Thanks a million- must get aorund to doing this now!!

    • Don’t worry πŸ˜‰ Take your time! The reader is good but not perfect. I will also have emailed the address you have registered with wordpress but that could have ended up in your spam. Enjoy πŸ˜€ Avis x

      • Oh maybe, its a work email address so sometimes it gets caught in a “mail marshel” thing, which doesnt inform me until two weeks later that it’s caught emails and hasn’t released them!
        I will get onto this when I get home πŸ˜€
        Sophie is delighted too! Can;t wait to tell Dana, but the timezones (she’s in Mexico) so later it will have to be.
        Thanks again!


I really enjoy reading your comments. Have a lovely day :-)
