Thank you Christine I am greatly honoured.
The aim of the award is to tell more about ourselves and, more importantly draw the attention of others to blogs we enjoy reading, and encourage you to check them out.
- Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
- Share seven facts about yourself.
- Nominate 10 other bloggers for the award.
So first come seven facts about me, that you maybe didn't know already.
|Holland: flat land with a lot of sky.|
2. I am married to a Dutchman (hence my profile photo) and am mother of two and grandmother of three.
|Dutchman's Puzzle - that's me!|
4. My mother taught me to knit at the age of five, and I have subsequently tried most crafts with needle (or hook or bobbin) and thread. My largest project to date, in size, time and cost, is a hand knotted rug of 1.8 m x 2.5 m, which has been on the living room floor since 1988. It's a bit worn in places, but it took more than a year to make, so I can't bear to part with it.
5. I took up patchwork and quilting seriously three years ago, having vowed many years ago that I would never, ever do patchwork again. I had to make EPP flowers at school at the age of ten. It was a disaster; of course, none of my hexagons fitted together! About ten years ago I first came across Crazy Quilting, and did very little about it, but Christine has rekindled my interest recently as I watched her progress through a CQ project.
7. Now, however, I spend too much time reading blogs and and not enough time sewing. The trouble is that everyone writes such interesting things, posts such wonderful photos, gives such expert sewing, knitting or crochet tips, that I can't stop!
Here, in alphabetical order, is my short list of ten blogs. The long list is more than twice as long and the selection was really difficult.
