Thanks to Toni

I have a second award thanks to Toni!  Thanks so much sis.

Now I have to think of some random facts about myself to tell you.

  • I've always wanted to do creative things, but being brought up around mostly boys it wasn't the thing to get into. Then when I got married we never had the money for me to do much, so it's only in this time now that I'm being able to branch out and express myself and learn these lovely crafts.
  • One of the jobs I did after I was first married was to hand paint little plaques like this http://cgi.ebay.ie/Brush-Strokes-Wall-Plaque-Anne-Hathaway-s-Cottage-boxed-/290573357031?pt=UK_Collectables_Ornaments_RL&hash=item43a7858fe7   I absolutely loved this job, but it was very poorly paid so I had to leave.
  • I hate having my picture taken and it really annoys my family. I just feel so ugly and look so bad in all the pictures, I just like to have pictures of them only.  Recently they have forced me to be in some and I find it really hard.  :(
  • I rarely wear make up. I used to wear it when I was younger, but I've never been good at applying it and think I just look like an evil painted doll! lol.
So I think that's enough random facts about me.
Now the hardest part. To pass the award on to only a few bloggers, when I have so many amazing ones I read and some of the ones I would have chosen already have the award. haha.

Congratulations to you all!



  1. OMG!! Thanks so much!!!!! You've really made my day!!

    Thanks too for the comments over at mine, I sometimes feel a bit ambivalent about blogging (you know, thinking is anyone really interested) so it is so encouraging to get such lovely comment.

    BTW the cushions are done with an envelope back, I'm too lazy to faff with zips!!

  2. You're more than welcome Sarah!
    I really love reading your blog, so please don't stop. It's always so interesting and creative, I've been really inspired by you.


  3. Sis, you really are talented at doing those hand painted plaques!

    About your question on my doily, I used size 10 cotton thread with size 1.30mm hook. And I just washed it with soap and water, then blocked it. Maybe in the future will try one of those spray starch to see how a doily will look :-)

  4. Congrats!!Thanks for the comment on my blog and I just found your wonderful blog!

  5. Thanks Toni. :) I'll gradually try thinner yarn now! :)

    Ninu, thanks for visiting my blog and commenting, it's lovely to have you here.



Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a message. I really appreciate it.
