Hello lovelies ,
Heather over at one of my favourite blogs Little Tin Bird has kindly given me an award . I'm sorry I don't always get round to posting about awards but I do appreciate the sentiment a lot .
Anyways , here goes with ten facts about myself....
1.At the moment I'm still enjoying running and I've managed seven miles as the furthest distance . I'm happiest just going out and doing two to three though .I'ts great to get out in the fresh air and so convienient.
Sadly my knees are starting to complain ( despite these expensive trainers) so I may have to go back to the aerobics classes soon. My knees (along with the rest of me ) ain't as young as they used to be .
2. I will be 45 soon but I don't feel that old till I look in the mirror.
3.One of my favourite films of all time is "Pretty in Pink" I loved the way Molly Ringwald's character made her own prom dress and it has some great 80's music.
4. My favourite chocolate bar is a "Twirl"
5.I made several soft toys for school needlework projects as a teenager . Found this picture.... taken back then,the other day.......
The three in the centre are mine .They are prince charming and Cinderella rag dolls and A Bunny !!Sadly I don't know where they ended up but my latest bunny is a influenced by her.Their dresses are pretty much the same.
6.My eldest 2 have gone away on a school residential visit this week , so we are a family of three at the moment . Thankfully they are back tomorrow and I'm sure they are having a great time .
7.My favourite flowers are sweet peas ...so easy to grow ...great cut flowers and the scent ...amazing . Here are some of last years , can't wait for this years crop.........
8.I have loads of W.I.P.'s stashed around the house....like this (not sure what this will be) ......
and this ( it's a rug I'm making from T. shirt yarn ) ....
It doesn't stop me from starting more though!
9.My Mum used to take my brother and I to look around art Galleries a lot as children but I didn't really get inspired till we went to an exhibition of amazing patchwork quilts when I was about 13.
I was completely blown away by them . A resolution for this year, that I haven't managed to fulfill yet ,is to do some more patchwork.
10. Ummm struggling now.......oh , I know .... I can do the Vulcan Salute :0)
Now I have to pass this award on to 10 lovely blogs that inspire me.
