I can't believe that so many wonderful people out there want to read about me and my stitching and my cats and whatever else I ramble on about! This wonderful new hobby (or obsession, depends on who you are talking too) was started because my hubby wanted to show off his quilts somewhere. And me being me, decided that this was a great idea and I would join the party! Then I thought I'd have a squizz at who else was out there in the blog-osphere and I found all these wonderful blogs and amazing stitchers which I so just had to "follow" so that I could keep up with everyone's news. I have to agree with the "Spinster Stitcher" it is a bit like stalking.... but it is harmless fun that consumes hours of my day..... hours that I should be doing housework or stitching! I generally log on first thing in the morning and before I know it and hour or two has flown by.... oops! I really have to be careful about logging on when I'm at work otherwise I may not be at work much longer! My lunch break can so easily go from a quick squizz at one or two blogs to much longer - just one more little blog, please sir!!
Seriously I would like to say a very, very big Thank You to everyone who is reading my blog. I will try to keep you updated on my stitching, and with a bit of luck entertained. I look forward to
So that was shock number 1, now here's shock number 2!
Five things about me that you may not know:
1. I have blue/green eyes and mousy brown hair
2. I love teddy bears, dragons, penguins and owls
3. I am married to a Englishman (or as we Aussie's say - a Pom)
4. I love Vegemite sandwiches
5. I am hopeless at sewing - couldn't sew a straight line if my life depended on it (which is why I love cross stitch!)
Now I need to nominate some other blogs to pass this award onto...
Mark @ Mark's Quilts (yes, I know this is my hubby's blog, but he has done a lot of work on his blog lately and it looks pretty good - blatant plug)
Sally @ Bizzi Hands (Sally is one of my work mates, so yes I know, another blatant plug but I do love Sally's card that she creates)
Kim @ A Stitch in Thyme (love the colours of Kim's blog! And a fellow Aussie stitcher/blogger)
Astrid @ Cross Stitched by Astrid (another fan of dragons!)
So while I wouldn't normally accept and pass on awards, I believe that this one is a nice way to introduce myself to you all and also a way to say thank you to my new online friends. I look forward to seeing everyone around Blogland!
Til next time,
