An Award from Anna!

You may have heard me mention my lovely Swedish friend Anna a few times on this blog.  She is a 'real life' friend I used to work with, who taught me how to crochet!  She is very talented and has a lovely blog here where she posts in Swedish and English.

I don't usually do awards these days, but Anna has awarded me with this one:

And as it is from Anna (thanks!) I will answer the questions!

What is your favourite flower?
Tulips - so beautiful and colourful!
What do you do on a rainy day?
Crochet/sew/read/watch TV/read blogs and crafty inspiration - and spend as much of it snuggled under my waterlily blanket as possible!
Favourite food?
Chocolate and cake (coffee and walnut, carrot, victoria...mmm)!
Favourite book?
Hard to pick... there are so many good books, it depends on my mood - I loved the Twilight books; Sophie Kinsella books always make me laugh and are so enjoyable to read; Harry Potter of course; and I'm planning to re-read Pride and Prejudice at some point soon (to be honest, I can't remember the book - I just remember the amazing BBC drama!).  I'm sure I've forgotten some of my favourite books...
City or country?
Country (although not that keen on mud!)
What new craft would you like to learn?
Good question... I've seen some gorgeous needle felted funky things and would love to be able to make them!
What is your favourite holiday?
What music do you listen to?
Cheery cheesy music - Country Road, I Would Walk 500 Miles, I'm in the Mood for Dancing - cheese!!!  Oh, and been getting into Kenny Rogers lately, love it!
Why did you start your blog?
I started because I discovered craft blogs, and especially became obsessed with the paper-and-string blog which I thought was amazing.  I didn't realise that there was this crafty inspirational world out there, and it was a revelation!  I decided to start my own blog.  I did have ideas of turning it into a craft business and selling the things I made, but I didn't really stick with that and just enjoyed sharing the things I'd made with other interested people.

What do you find most rewarding with blogging?
I love that people are interested in what I've been making and it's always so exciting to get a positive comment!  Everyone is so supportive and encouraging.  I also love the wealth of inspiration and ideas out there.  It's so lovely to see what others are making - it's like a virtual craft group really, everyone sharing ideas and makes. 

What makes you follow a blog?
Usually if I stumble across a blog and like the things they've been making, I'll follow so that I don't miss any more pretty creations and inspiration!

Thanks again Anna.

And here is a sneak peak of a bit of the kitchen for you all...

More on that soon.....!
