Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

A huge Thank You to Lisa from the Hemline for nominating me for a Kreativ Blogger Award. I'm ever so excited about this. I peruse the Hemline almost daily, and have purchased some patterns from her store. Very reasonably priced too, I might add!

Anyhoo, I now have to tell you 7 things you might not know about me:-

  1. I am a twin to a very tall six foot red head brother (I'm brunette, or at least used to be brunette...I have to get my hair colour out of a bottle these days!). We were born in Derby, Western Australia, and headlined the newspapers in that town as we were the first twins born in 10 years.

  2. I have been sewing since I was 10, but only sewed my first vintage pattern last year.

  3. After studying Italian for 4 years in high school, I can only remember this..."Santo Cielo, ce non il latte!" (ie: Heavens above, there's no milk!).

  4. My hand sewing is horrid, and I would throw a pair of socks into the rubbish before I would darn them.

  5. I refuse to only drink champagne on special occasions. Every day is champagne worthy!

  6. I have a thing about coat hangers...they are all matching white ones - no black, no wood, no wire (except for skirt hangers of course).

  7. I am really wanting to sew a Mondrian style dress for this summer...the patterns are so rare, anybody have one lying around the house by chance?

So here are my 7 nominations:-

  1. Linda from Welcome To My Blog (because she got me hooked on this bloggy thing in the first place!).

  2. JuliaB from MarmaladeKiss (because she is so very talented).

  3. Super Kawaii Mama (this gal has so much style, and I can't help but read her blog each day, and sometimes even twice a day, I've been lurking for ages and never posted a comment..tsk tsk tsk!).

  4. Nikki from You SEW Girl (because I love bags).

  5. Suzitee from Stitch Scrap Sew (because she seems a little cheeky to me!)

  6. Janellybelly from Threads of Friendship ( because she's super, super nice with a whole lot of talent thrown in!)

  7. Wikia wiki (this is not a blog, but I could easily spend an hour just clicking on the random page link...)

Ta Ta for now....


  1. Thank you so much Jeni! Too kind of you I think! I shall try to think of 7 things ... hmmm.... xxx

  2. Thanks Jenni -
    I'm a pretty open book... I don't know if I can think of seven things people don't already know about me... but I'll have a think about it.

  3. LMAO Jenni! Cheeky? Who me? I will try very hard to think of 7 things :) Love your random facts,some made me laugh out loud! Enjoy the last few days of holidays xxx

  4. Thanks Jen, I will also have to think of seven things although you will know them all.
    I am going to go and check out that dress never heard of them or it.

  5. Back again
    I know that you are very clever and have designed your own patterns before so cant you design one of these or is it not the same thing. If you do find a pattern you are going to have to search the world to get a pair of those matching shoes..

  6. Well done on winning the award! It seems we have something in common - I have an ovession with matching white hangers too!

  7. THANK YOU ever so much Jenni - You're a sweetie. I am in awe of all your creativity.
