The versatile blogger

The most unexpected thing happened to me. I’m quite new over here at blogland, and every time I’m very excited about all the lovely comments people leave at my posts. And now; look what Annemarie's Breiblog gave me:

This is such an huge surprise; thank you so much Annemarie!

This award comes with four rules:
1.Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Tell 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason.
4. Contact the bloggers you pass the award to.

So now I have to tell you 7 things about myself:
1. I hate spending time on my household, because it keeps me away from knitting, crochet, sewing and all those other nice crafty things.
2. I looooooove to read and I am definitely an Jane Austen fan.
3. I spent way too much time surfing Ravelry looking for more idea’s for which I don’t have time to make.
4. Purple is my favourite colour.
5. I never use a pattern the way it is written, but always change things to give it a personal twist.
6. I hate grumpy people, especially when I’m grumpy myself.
7. I like to sing (but no one wants to hear me!)

The blogs I want to pass this award to, are blogs I really like to read and which inspire me in many different ways. By passing this award to them I want to thank all those lovely ladies for doing so time and again.

Hello Dorien,
there's sooo much crochet gorgeousness on your blog, I love it! Thank you so much for the tremendous compliment of giving me an award, that's very kind of you, and it's led me to your lovely blog. Love the colours in the fair isle swatch, and the pattern. I was looking at a book of patterns just the other day, and saw this one you've used, it's beautiful isn't it. I look forward to seeing how your pattern progresses. Love Vanessa xxx

Dorien, Thank You. What a sweet surprise. I was just reading about you and I noticed we have a lot in common besides our love of everything Knit & Crochet. Isn't blogging the best!

The wool in that last post looks scrummy doesn't it? You are such a clever knitter...
I'm a teeny bit envious at your (and all other knitting legends) skills!!!!!
Lots of love to you

I have been so slooow (not to say rude!) in replying! I am really sorry. Life has been very busy and I have had to neglect my blog for a few weeks. I foolishly assumed everyone else was ignoring me, since I had not said anything new for a while. I only just got your message. Thank you so much.
