The Versatile Blogger Award

What a wonderful surprise, I have just received the Versatile Blogger Award from Diana of Sew Passionista by Diana (you must check out her fabulous blog if you haven't already).  I am very flattered, and would like to thank her very much, but as they say there is no such thing as a free lunch, and I too have to follow the rules below in order to accept the award:-

  1. Add the award to your blog
  2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you
  3. Mention 7 random things about yourself
  4. List the rules
  5. Give the award to 15 bloggers
  6. Inform each of those 15 bloggers by leaving a comment on their blog

So I have already done 1 & 2 on the list, so now I need to mention 7 random things about me:-

  1. I think that I have a creative core running right through me, I see something and automatically think "I wonder if I can make that"?
  2. I am a mother to 3 wonderful grown-up children and now am enjoying the experience of being a grandmother which brings me great joy;
  3. I am constantly inspired by other creative people, whatever their talent;
  4. I love my sewing room, its my sanctuary;
  5. I have a continuous thirst to learn more and do it better;
  6. Have found happiness with a wonderful man at an age that I never thought possible, and
  7. I have a professional job that takes me all around the world which allows me to extend my fabric/sewing shopping experiences outside the UK.

And here are the blogs that I would like to pass this award on to the following blogs:-

  1. Bunny at La Sewista!
  2. Ann at Everything Sewing
  3. Rachel at House of Pinheiro
  4. Ruth at SewRuth
  5. Carolyn at Carolyn's Sewing Room
  6. Robyn at a little sewing
  7. ArtAttack
  8. Lori t Girls in the Garden
  9. Mary at bibiloblog
  10. Doobee at Doobee's Creations
  11. Shannona at Hungry Zombie Couture
  12. Kathryn, aka fzxdoc at I made this!
  13. MushyWear
  14. Martha at Now Sewing, and last but not least
  15. Sarah at Goodbye Valentino.

All of the above blogs are versatile and an inspiration.
