Thank you Carolyn for thinking of me! You definitely add sunshine to my day with your beautiful photography, warm open writing style and generous tips and tutorials. It's an honour.
Favorite Color: Blue
Favorite Animal: Humming Birds
Favorite Number: 8
Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Fresh Lemonade
Facebook or Twitter: Facebook, barely. I don't tweet.
My Passion: My kids!
Getting or Giving Presents: Giving. I am an awkward receiver. Birthdays and such were really low-key when I was a kid, and I am always gobsmacked and slightly embarrassed by friends' generosity.
Favorite Pattern: HotPatterns Riviera Cardigan. I've made it twice now. I wore out my orange version and am on to yellow.
Favorite Day of the Week: Monday(!) I love my life and Monday's feel like a fresh start.
Favorite Flower: Roses, we have thirteen in our small garden. No, they don't look like too much at all! Roses really are very easy to grow in England.
Favorite celebrity role model: I am partial to Oprah Winfrey and Dolly Parton. Two very smart, talented women who made it from nothing. And not just talented but with good business heads.
Now for the challenging bit, finding a reasonable number of people to pass this onto! Since I listed everyone I follow with a readership of less than 100 not the versatile blogger award, I suppose I can list a few more established blogs here.
Mushywear - Shannon sews beautiful, casual clothes and shares gorgeous pictures of Hawaii.
MezzoCouture - Tia sews lovely clothes for herself and her daughters with lots of thoughtful musings.
Seamstress Poppykettle - Melanie's blog is relatively new, but, Oh the clothes! And she is cute as a button too!
Clio & Phineas - Clio is sewing a leather jacket at the moment! Enough said.
Sew Tawdry - Audrey does some really ambitious sewing. Always elegant.
Ten Thousand Hours of Sewing - Victoria is one smart cookie, and she sews beautiful clothes for herself and her daughter.
Sewing on the Edge - Barbara is an accomplished seamstress and I learn from her blog, but it is her musings on life that really grab me. I always find myself nodding my head as I read her posts.
Now, the astute among you will notice that I left out some fabulous blogs. Remember guys, some people prefer to not get these sort of chain-letter-awards. So, I had to try to judge it carefully. Also, some folks already have this one!
