IHSW and Liebster


...was not a bust for me, but I can't share my progress. Saturday morning I decided that I wanted to stitch something for the giveaway winners. Then I decided that I wanted to hand-dye the fabric I was going to stitch on. Then I actually dyed it. And believe it or not by Sunday night I was already starting the second piece. I'm almost done, but as such I can't show you my progress. To the giveaway winners: I will be sending out the goodies by the end of the week!


It seems that I've been awarded a Liebster award both by Mangogirl (Caitlin) from Naughts & Cross Stitches and Adrienne from TryllaCraft!

"Liebster is a German word, meaning favorite, 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 five random facts about yourself that people don't know about you."

I found out that Adrienne nominated me after I already decided to nominate her, so I'm sticking to it.

1. TryllaCraft - A wonderful person with beautiful stitchy works in progress and also some divine card making skills I'm currently lusting after!

2. charbella stitching - With three little girls, I'm amazed sharine keeps her sanity! Her stitching is truly stunning and I love seeing the Barbie dresses she produces along with stories of her girls.

3. On My Needles - Chatelaines and HAEDs stitched by a sweet person. The first time I saw her WIPs I audibly gasped (and Boyfriend peered over to see what I was gasping about).

4. Heli's Stitchery - Heli is super nice and her HAEDs are amazing. She has also just jumped into the world of Chatelaines, because the blogging world is both a wonderful and awful influence!

5. Doll's Musings - Anne's blog is full of beautiful things, and not just stitching! From her cat Titus to her soft Victorian-inspired photography, every read is a wonderful journey.

Five random facts might be difficult. Hmmm...

1. I hate celery. With a passion. I'll only eat it to be polite, but I refuse to use it in my cooking and will pick it out of my food as long as I'm in a situation where it will not be rude.

2. I can't handle bloody/gory movies. Just can't do it. Boyfriend and I went to see Immortals in theaters, and I couldn't watch it. I covered my eyes for 85% of the movie.

3. I got my ears pierced when I was 19. My mother had to hold me down in the chair. I now want to get my bellybutton pierced, but am afraid that I'm too out of shape and also too old to do it anymore.

4. I love home improvement shows and secretly look for Matt Muenster when I go into any home improvement store.

5. I'm terrified of bears. Absolutely terrified.

Congratukations on your award!! For the record I hate gore and horror movies too, bleck! Cant wait to see your fabric and wips you're working on in secret ;)

Congratulations on your award!
I LOVE those facts about you...My hubby hates celery too! (though, he hates anything considered a vegetable!)

Your to sweet. If it makes you feel better I got my bellybutton pierced when I was 20 and nearly passed out. (Much to the amusement of my younger sister)

Anne said...

Ewa!! Thank you for the award and such sweet things you say about me :D AWW!!!

Funny thing about "On my Needles" comment. I did the exact same thing as you and MY HUBBY leaned over too!! We were both amazed at her Peacock tapestry. Truly stunning! But you too have truly stunning stitching as well!!! I would award you but you already got it a bunch of times!!!

Loved reading more about you. I can't handle gory movies(horror) either. As for the belly button piercing, I did that when I was 16 and have a small scar there when my body rejected the metal!! As for bears, I grew up in the country of Prince George and we had loads of bears wandering around. To this day, when I have nightmares, it's about BEARS!!!

Can't wait to see your secret stitching :D
