Liebster Award

Liebster Award

Recently I was surprised and excited to find that I had been nominated by Halfstitch for a Liebster Award.  Check out her blog, if you love cross stitch I’m sure you will find it as inspiring as I do.  Thank you very much, Michelle, it is such an honour to be nominated by one of my blogger peers and have my humble blog chosen as one of interest.  Amazing.

I haven’t posted anything for a little while, as I really didn’t have anything interesting to write about – but now I do!!!

  5. I am passionate about animal welfare.
  6. I always make lists and like that it makes me more productive.
  7. I once put on a job application form that my interests were riding my motorcycle and target pistol shooting and was told they were “unladylike”.  (I didn’t get the job.)

My Nominations


Halfstitch’s Q& A

  1. Do you prefer sweet or savoury foods?  Sweet!  Normally when I go to a restaurant, I check out the dessert menu first – and leave room accordingly, especially if creme brulee is on the menu!
  2. What can’t you leave your house without?  Well, I could say lip balm, which would be true (and boring!).  Also true and far more important – my credit card.  I never carry much cash and twice I have filled up my car with fuel and then realized I had no money!  On one occasion the attendant wouldn’t let me leave, and I was there for quite a while until I could contact my “other half”.  I was too embarrassed to “ring a friend”!
  3. What did you enjoy most about today?  I got up early (for once) and we got the lawns mowed, the edges trimmed and some gardening done, and it all looks so neat!
  4. Are you an early riser or a night owl?  I used to be a night owl and an early riser but not now, as the cats love to come in (with a little bit of encouragement from me) to snuggle up in bed early in the morning.  So now I get up late – I can’t disturb them, right?
  5. What’s your favourite hobby?  Hmmm, difficult to choose just one …. probably sewing.
  6. What are the three foods you can’t do without?  Krispy Kreme donuts, dark chocolate and (to be honest) KFC’s Zinger Burger.  (No one said “healthy” foods, did they?)
  7. What are you looking forward to?  Our train trip next week on the “Ghan” which goes from Darwin in the Northern Territory to Adelaide in South Australia.
  8. What websites do you frequent?  Pinterest, Craftsy and EBay.
  9. Name one of your Goals.  Plan a vacation to the USA, to spend some more time in New York and LA (and wherever else we can fit in).
  10. What’s your favourite type of cruisine?  Too difficult to narrow down to one – I’ll have to say Mexican and Thai.

  1. Aw, I’m glad to read your responses! I love desserts too and I feel like I plan how I eat among sweets, lol. Im amused that you try to limit how many crafts that you do. Have you found that there’s such thing as too many crafts? 😀
