Awards and aprons

As a very new blogger I'm astonished at the honour that is pouring all over me. Before I had time to react to the You make my day award I received from Kaija, I this afternoon noticed I had another one from Karen. Thank you, ladies!

The award rules:

1. Write a post with links to 5 blogs (or 10 according to some) that make your day

2. Acknowledge the post of the award giver.

3. Tell the award winners that they've won by commenting on their blogs.

After careful consideration I give this award forward to the following blogs I have found enjoyable:

Karen - contemporary embroidery for encouraging me to start my blog and helping me with my problems

Meet me at Mikes for the Hearts for Mirabel idea

Nikki Shell for the delightful Brown Owls

Fia Lotta Jansson for the joy of feeling so familiar and finding out she is from Finland

Bianca of Hollabee for giving a face to the fabrics I bought

I combine the two awards because I really don't read so many blogs yet. The one that really makes my day is the blog of Kaija, but since she just had two of these awards and has had it earlier too, I give her this instead:

This is the apron I finished a little while ago and it was meant for her coming birthday, but now I will make another one for that day, something prettier I hope.


  1. thank you so much, you definitely made my day!

  2. I feel very honoured and grateful, and you sure made my day as well:)! love your blog and the things you do, and do love the name of your blog (found the history behind it)!
    all the best to you for the weekend!

  3. Thankyou Ulla! I will have to think now about who else to pass it on to. The apron is lovely, Kaija is a lucky girl!

  4. Thank you all for the thanks!

  5. Thankyou so much but it's not me that organises the Brown Owls, that would be Pip from Meet me at Mikes :)

  6. OK, Nichola, I meant I found the Brown Owls through your blog, it was the most recent good thing. I also loved your quilts. I wish you well for the final days of your pregnancy!
