Award...Thank you!

I was dead chuffed to see that I have been given an award by Picciolo.

This is one of the aspects of blogging that I like as well as leaving comments and hearing other peoples view of your work. Giving awards is nice because others have taken time to think of you and post about you. Picciolo and I set up our blogs at a similar time and she was the first to leave a comment on my blog. So thank you very much.

I would like to pass this onto:
* Nannybird: Who has helped with some technical aspects of blogging, been supportive of my work especially with felt and sent me some really lovely emails.
*M.Kate: For having a blog that is very original and with fantastic photography.
*InkberryBlue: For her enviable crochet skills, lovely photography and enjoyable posts.
*Twiggypeasticks: For finding my blogging, re-visitng and for having a very interesting and lively blog.
*U-Handbag: For having an inspirational blog and fantastic on-line shop where I could literally spend a fortune on bag loveliness.

I have recently been visitng other blogs but as they do not know me very well I have not mentioned them here. Does anyone else feel that they need to have commented a few times before adding their name to this kind of thing? Maybe it is just me. Do take a look at these blogs and others in my sidebar as they are worth a visit. I have added a few more this past week.

It has been really hectic here with the building work and nest week I will start posting some pictures so that you can see the transformation. We are really pleased with the attic conversion so far but once it is finished I reckon that I will be finding and removing dust etc for WEEKS! Never mind eh!

So sewing, completing WIP's or taking pictures has been low on the agenda this week.

I may not have achieved much this week but look at this little lady!!!

Sophie simply said one morning "Can I have my stabilisers taken off my bike please?" My hubby and I looked at each other and held our breath. That was last Sunday and you may remember I said about keeping plasters to hand. Well after school on Monday she announced that she had a surprise for me and it was this........

"Look Mum no stabilisers!"
It was one of those teary- eyed Navtity play sort of experience. She was rock steady on her bike and was confident to go at a reasonable speed too.
Not bad for 5 years old. I have found over the past year or so that when she makes a decision she sticks to it and does it. It is great when shopping for school shoes believe me! I am very impressed with how she has handled her first year at school (so far) and her determination when she puts her mind to it.
Any way slushy mummy time over,
More tomorrow I have the last sketch book Sunday post and hopefully some completed WIP's.

Nighty Nighty

I just finished reading your post and realized I have tears in my eyes!!! Not because of the tremendous honor you bestowed upon me with the award, that did make me grin, but because of your sweet little Miss and her determination to succeed in riding her bike! I like the "slushy mummy" side of you!

You deserve to be proud of her and her confidence and enthusiasm. She must have a very good role model!

Thank you for the smile, even if it did put tears in my eyes! Also, thank you for the award, I think your blog is rather Excellent too, as well as you yourself !

I have enjoyed reading some of your favorites list, Zakka Life, Inkberry Blue, Sew Momma Sew and Purple and Paisley, we also have some in common as well with Cindy, Maria, and Barbara from the purse project. Seems we like a lot of the same things in blogs!! Hugs! Nan PS, thank you again for the award!
