I got a nice surprise last week, Fiona who writes the ‘Seams Straightforward’ blog nominated me for a Liebster blog award.
This is a scheme to encourage people to find new blogs to read, which might otherwise be overlooked. The nominees need to have less than 500 follows – well that’s definitely me!
I have tried to google to find the origins of the Liebster blog awards but no luck. So it seems to me like a welcome chain letter. It’s lovely to be nominated and to be able to nominate others in return.
Fiona nominated 5 bloggers, check out her post for the other 4, and asked 5 questions.
Q1 How and when did you discover your love for sewing?
I started sewing when I was very young, encouraged by my mum.
Q2 Which 5 sewing patterns would you take to your Desert island, to sew and wear forever more – or at least until you were rescued?
I don’t think I could pick out 5, I’d just probably spend my time knitting socks but I’d definitely take the Sewaholic Renfrew.
Q3 Do you enjoy sewing for others, and if so for whom?
Yes, I enjoy sewing for my two children, 6 & 2.
Q4 Describe yourself to a stranger in 5 words.
I don’t want to really!
Q5 What was your biggest sewing success, and also your biggest sewing failure?
I made my wedding dress in 2010, that was the most challenging item I had sewn. There have been plenty of failures along the way. There’s not been any one thing that stands out but the Sewaholic Robson Trench could be shaping up to be an expensive unfinished project….
The blogs I’d like to nominate are
Make & Wear Chris does some great knitting and sewing projects
Short Stories of Shapely Seams You’ll find a wealth of information about sewing with knits here
Knitrun4sanity Knitting with lots of running and some fab jewellery making
Thanks again to Fiona for the nomination.
