A few days ago Lisa, from Sunlight in Winter, nominated me for a One Lovely Blog award. Lisa has a great blog, and an eclectic style which covers everything from EPP to improv - well worth a visit. Thank you Lisa, this was such a nice surprise; I really appreciate it.
Since I am not sewing anything I can blog this week (I'm quilting a bit and reading up for something) I thought I would get on and do my own post straight away.
If you haven't come across one of these posts before, the idea is to introduce people to blogs (ideally newer ones) which you love to read and which they might not have come across before. If you accept an award, then you:
- Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their post
- Share 7 things about yourself
- Choose some blogs to nominate for the award. (I think originally it was 10, but 'some' is just fine.

I love, and I do mean love, watching sport. Any sport will do, but cricket and rugby can both have me on the edge of my seat, with a horrible sick feeling in the pit of my stomach.
I don't always admit how many kids I have. It's only 6 but I worry people will think I have no self-control.
I am the daughter of immigrants, the grand-daughter of immigrants and as I get older I find I am thinking a lot about where my roots are, where I belong.
I like to sing at the top of my voice when I'm in the car on my own. Orrther drivers have been known to laugh.
I believe there are not many things that don't taste better with added chili.
And in no particular order, the blogs I nominate are:
And finally, can't have a blog post without a quilty picture so here is a tiny peek at an early quilt. (In light of my second point above, I should point out that I know quilty isn't a real word, but I am choosing to use it anyway).
