My first ever Award :-)

I am so happy to have been awarded this award by Vilma from vilmascreation !!! I am really honored to get this award!

Some background: Liebster is a German word, meaning favourite, dearest or beloved and the Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other, newer bloggers, who have fewer than 200 followers, to spread the word and help the new(er)bies gain wider recognition. The award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting:

1. Choose five up-and-coming blogs (with fewer than 200 followers) to award the Liebster to.

2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

3. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blogs so they know about the award.

4. Share 5 random facts about yourself that people don't know about you.

I will give an award to the following blogs:

1. Gale at stitchersanon
2. Marion at Villa Kunterbunt
3. Heather at Diary of a single mum
4. Manja at malimaunikate
5. Michelle at stitchcraftplace

Actually, I really wish I could award more bloggers... because each one of us took the time to build it, to post pictures, write about feelings and thoughts. Besides it takes SO many hours to get it running...

Five random facts about me:

1. I am really a rather shy person

2. I have Hypermobilty Syndrome which means I am more bendy than most other people but it also means that too much stitching can give me lots of pain in my wrists

3. I really do NOT like travelling. I am the worst passanger you can imagine ;-)

4. Ironing is over rated, just hang everything up straight and you save precious stitching time ;-)

5. I enjoy showing off my stitching but do NOT like parting with it. This means I must really like you if you receive something stitched from me  ;-)

Now you know my most secret secrets. I hope this works as I am still learning how to blog.

And another first


well this week seems to be one of firsts. First my very first Blackwork design and now my very first Sockmonkey. They are so easy to make! I'm sure I'll have to do lots more (one for each child)

This one is for Charlotte though. She got some bad new and needed cheering up.

These are the socks:

And here is the finished Susie Sock! :-)

yes, I know, I know. I did say I am not interested and even though it doe look good it'd be boring to stitch. But hey I can't be right ALL  the time can I? ;-)

I stitched this wonderful chick and it was FUN! Yes fun! So, I'm pretty sure this will not be the last one I've done:

gosh, I have FINALLY finished the Tatty Teddy on top of this lovely advents calendar. It has taken AGES! But now it's done and I think it was well worth it! ;-)

My OH was complaining I never do the cover kits of my magazines. Well, I have so much on. You wouldn't believe how many UFOs I have (okay some of them are listed on the right). But still I have been a very good(ish) girl and finished THREE. Yeah!

So, now I have to stitch the little pockets for the calendar and then it's back to an other UFO which then will turn into a WIP by magic :-)
