confessions of a fabric obsessive

Versatile Blogger Award

(PS, this post might have been delayed just a little bit because I couldn’t decide who my nominees would be. )

They say things come in threes don’t they?

A few days after posting about my previous award, I received this comment on my blog from Diannajessie

“Hi Claire,

I love reading your blog and wanted to nominate you for the Versatile Blogger award🙂 Congratulations

See my link for how to proceed further and thank you for your great posts


Thank you Diana, I am always stunned that anyone thinks my blog is worthy of any recognition (but also quietly very pleased).

This award comes with some rules :

  • Thank the person who awarded you (above)
  • Tell the person who nominated you 7 random things about yourself
  1. I’m not a first-thing-in-the-morning person, and I can’t function without a small-but-necessary shot of caffeine. I then have to avoid caffeine the whole of the rest of the day otherwise I won’t sleep that night or that week.
  2. I love gardening and my favourite smell is freshly-mown grass.
  3. I would love to grow vegetables in my garden, but I’m the kiss of death to seedlings.
  4. When I was 15 years old, I actually asked my Mum to take me to the opticians because I thought I might need glasses (turns out  I was right – I’m short-sighted but seriously, volunteering to wear spectacles?).
  5. I love chocolate cake or any chocolate edible – nom, nom, nom
  6. In my head, my home is beautiful, elegant, colourful, organised and tidy. In reality, not so much.
  7. I have a 3 second memory… oooh! pretty shiny things…

Thanks again Dianna

    Congratulations! Thanks for sharing your seven random things 🙂 In my head my home is not beautiful, elegant, colourful, tidy or organised. In reality, it isn’t either he-he! Avis x
