An Award

I've been lucky enough to receive an award from two of my stitching friends! A big thanks goes to Melissa and Su for honouring me in such a way.

Now I'm going to combine the two together but they're both slightly different. One is seven things about yourself that people may not know and pass the award onto seven, the other is the same except it's ten. So I'll tell you ten things about me and will hand it on to seven, if that's OK.

  1. I have only owned 3 cars in my 25 years of driving - first two were manuals, and my current one is an automatic.

  2. I hate catching public transport and will rarely use it.

  3. My first overseas trip was on my own. I went to England when I was 23 to meet up with my penpal (male) but we didn't get along as well as I had hoped. He had a strange sense of humour, an annoying laugh, and I had to spend two weeks with him on a bus trip around Europe!

  4. I have only been to two other states in Australia, apart from Victoria where I live - New South Wales and Queensland.

  5. I have blue eyes.

  6. Sometimes I buy more stash than what I show on my blog! Naughty, aren't I?

  7. I'm more reserved/quiet when I first meet people, until I get to know them a bit better.

  8. I love Colonial/American and primitive type furniture. Anything that looks old and worn and has character.

  9. I've only had three jobs in all my life. My current one I've been employed with the same company for 22 years.

  10. My favourite cut flower are gerberas (especially pink!). I love how colourful a bunch of mixed coloured gerberas look - so happy and cheerful.

I never find it easy to pass these awards on because I think everyone deserves them. Here's seven lovely blogs in no particular order.

  1. Tammy

  2. Bea

  3. Isabelle

  4. Nina

  5. Yuko

  6. Anna

  7. Theresa

Please, if any of you have already received this award, I apologise for doubling up.

So tomorrow I'm back to work - yuk! Back to getting up early of a morning, feeling tired when I get home of a night. I have to earn some more money though to buy more stash! lol

I haven't started Ah, 'Tis Spring yet. Once I do though, I'll let you know. Thanks for stopping by!

Many congratulations Jane on this award : you really deserve it since your blog is just nice and I really love reading it :-)

Congrats on your award and thanks for sharing with us!

Can't wait to see you start Ah, Tis Spring!

Hi Jane,
So great to read about you! You are so funny. Imagine going all the way to Europe to pal around with a pen pal! You are brave! Sorry it didn't work out! What a story.
I wanted to tell you how much I love your latest finish! What a darling stitch. Love the changes you made. This would be so cute in my DD's room. I should locate this pattern!
I am thinking of starting "Ah, tis spring" too. It's sort of calling to me, because of Easter. I don't have the fabric yet. I was thinking I would use something from my stash, but I really like the Alabaster that SB did on their remake, so I may break down and go down to Ogden to get it.
I know I owe you an e-mail! I promise to write today. I've been playing around, AGAIN, at a retreat. So sorry for the delay!

Congrats on your award Jane!
And thank you :)

Melissa said...

It was good to learn more things about you, Jane!

Good luck on the back to work! I will be doing the same shortly (I hope) so I can then buy more stash without all the guilt! ;-)

Deb said...

Congratulations on the Award. Your pictures and stitching are always beautiful.

Good luck going back to work! The only upside to working is the stash you can buy with the money!!

So glad to see you getting this award as you totally deserve it - your pictures and stitching are always so inspiring. I loved the story about your male penpal not quite working out. Sounds EXACTLY like something that might happen to me!
