My first blog award!

Some lovely news... I have been awarded a Stylish Blogger award by the very talented and lovely Emily Parkes! Make sure you visit her blog and check out her wonderful textiles and illustration work.

So on getting this award, I need to tell you seven facts about myself, and then pass the award along to seven of my own favourite blogs. So here goes...

1: I was born in Bath, but have moved around a lot! In fact I have lived in 10 different places all around the country during my life (apparently I have inherited my dad's itchy feet!)

2: I've always been very academic, and if I hadn't followed my heart and focused on textiles, part of me would have wanted to follow some sort of scientific career - I'm so patient and precise, I think I would have been good in a lab!

3: When I was little, I had a pet lamb called Skippity, who I hand reared as an orphan. My brother also had one, his was called Lucy!

4: I used to play the flute. I got to Grade 5 then gave up... really hope to pick it up again one day although I'm not really very musical.

5: I went travelling around Europe a few years ago with two friends and had an amazing time... One of my favourite places was Venice, where I would love to go back to one day.

6: I hate clothes shopping but could trawl antique shops and homeware stores for hours on end.

7: I would so love to get another cat, but my OH is allergic to nearly all animals :( The picture is of our old cats Tiggy and Spot, who were both total sweeties!

So there you go, hope you have enjoyed learning seven things about me! 

Now for the seven lovely blogs I am going to pass it on to...

Hi Jenny,
Thanks for the comment on my blog, I saw some of your work on a blog lately and didn't realise you had a blog of your own. Your work is lovely.
I have managed to put some bits in my recipe folder-the problem is its all cakes and desserts! Need to find some nice dinner recipes!

Hello Jenny :) I'm finally stopping by to give you a proper heart felt thank you! My weeks are so busy, I allot a certain evening each week for catching up with email and bloggers, otherwise I just don't have time. I know it's only January but I'm already looking forward to the break that summer will afford me.

I love to read these kinds of posts about my favourite bloggers, it's always so great to learn more about you! I really feel for you not being able to have a pet, that must be hard :( Hopefully you will find an animal that suits both of you someday!
