As part of me making more balance in my life, I have cut back my blogging frequency.  I hope you will understand.  But I also hope to have some more interesting blog posts rather than some of my mindless babbling.  I hope you bare with me as I fine tune my balance.  Today we will start with that!

When I logged onto my computer this morning, I started my Monday off with my normal routine, tea, morning banter with several friends then off to check the blogsphere that I so passionately love to read.  As I was checking my comments, I found the most wonderful surprise!  Pasque Flower awarded me a Versitile Blogger Award.  I was so touched! 

As part of the award, I am to share 7 factoids about me, then find 15 lucky awardees myself!

What are my factoids you ask me?  Well....

  1. My mom taught me everything I know about sewing and knitting.
  2. I'm a compulsive learner.  I love the thrill of learning new things and figuring them out
  3. My family is my world, but what wife and mother wouldn't say that!
  4. By education I am an engineer twice over.
  5. I love to problem solve
  6. I have a dream of sailing around the world some day
  7. I am a fish out of water.
Now to nominate my 15 bloggers who I believe are also deserving of this award.  Hmmm this was pretty touch for me, but alas here they are:
  1. The Homespun Loft 
  2. Ambassador Crochet
  3. Coldham Cuddlies
  4. Duni's Studio 
  5. Julie Ann Art 
  6. Keeping It Indie 
  7. Little Cutie Cakes 
  8. Livi Stitches 
  9. Sew Determined 
  10. {lbg studio} 
  11. Market My Shop 
  12. Fabric Fascination 
  13. Stuck in a Zoo 
  14. Inside Inno8ive Knits 
  15. Totally Tutorials
Congrats to some great bloggers!


  1. Thank you so much for the honor - I greatly appreciate your support!!!

    Happy Monday - Brandi

    1. My pleasure! I was so surprised to be named myself. It is such a great motivator to know that people are actually reading what I write!

  2. Thanks Andrea - that was a lovely surprise. Will try to accomplish all that you've set me - but it won't be tonight! Have got some serious sewing to do on a Soft Toy Clinic patient that has to come first!

    Hope you're feeling more like yourself!

    1. No took me a week to post mine!

    1. Thanks so much for the award. Those facts were hard to think of!

  4. Hi Andrea,

    congrats on the award and thank you for bestowing it on me!!
    It was nice to read more about you - we share #2!

    1. Duni, Bitte schoen! Ich habe Duni's Studio geniessen. Ich habe Duni's Studio fuere Deutsche Praxis anfangen studieren.

      For those of you non-German speakers and just in case I completely butchered that. I just said: Duni, your welcome! I enjoy your blog, Duni's Studio. I began reading it to practice my German.

  5. Hello fellow "Versatile Blogger"! I found out about your blog through "Coldham Cuddlies" and I just joined your blog.
    If you have a chance please checkout my blog:

  6. Hi Andrea - as you see from Angie's comment just above mine, I managed to do my bit last evening! Not as difficult (except for choosing which blog to nominate) as I thought it would be. However, where do I grab the Versatile Blog badge from? Having bragged about it, may as well keep it prominently posted, don't you think?

    Thanks again.


    1. Isobel,

      Sorry I just noticed this comment! You can grab it from my post if you'd like. Simply right click on the image and say copy image location. When you post in your blog you simply insert the picture from a URL. Hope that helps!
