Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you to Agujas for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award!  I’m flattered!

There are a few instructions nominees have to follow.  First, I have to select 15 blogs/bloggers that I’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.  That is difficult, as there are so many.  I am listing 15 but there are many, many more I could add:

  1. Marina Kanavaki – A talented artist is this woman.  I love her watercolors.
  2. We Heart Vintage – Photography and fashion starting from the 1920s forward.
  3. Wool and Chocolate – This blogger is so good about sharing her innovations and ideas.
  4. Pearls – Pearls-Toronto (aka Cheryl) has such a fun way of describing things.
  5. Eva Stossel – A talented weaver who shares her work through great photographs.
  6. Crochet With Raymond – And, by the way, Raymond is a cat!  🙂
  7. John Grant – If you like old movies, you’ll appreciate these well-written film reviews!
  8. Project Remnant Redo – A great, eclectic blog!
  9. The Careless Gene – A most energetic textile artist.
  10. I Dye Every Day – Marjorie’s a prolific dyer; her work makes me wish there were more hours in the day or days in the week!
  11. Remily Knits – Skilled knitter … be sure and see how she knit her dog!
  12. Knitted Notes – The blog’s subtitle reveals what a talented blogger is Ella:  “Knitting and blogging in Italy in times of economic crisis.”
  13. Curls and Q – Eclectic and funny blogging filled with great fiber work!
  14. Jingersnaps – Jinger is a baker and knitter, and her blog is yummy!  (I am definitely making her curried cauliflower dish.)
  15. Peacefully Knitting – “All things pertaining to the fiber arts.”  I need say no more.

Now I have to share seven things about me.  Okay, here it goes:

  1. I wore a women’s size 7 shoe in 4th grade.  (My feet grew even longer.)
  2. As a child I used to hope my freckles would grow together and make me look tanned.
  3. When I was about 8, I used to tell my American friends that when we lived in Norway we lived in igloos (which, by the way, is not a Norwegian thing), and I told my Norwegian friends that in America we lived with Indians.  (This made me very popular with the 7-9 year old set.)
  4. I was the tallest girl in the 8th grade graduation class; only one boy was taller than yours truly.
  5. When I was 13 I informed my mother that I wanted to be a professional lounge singer (I had a nice voice) – pianist (I could transpose anything and loved the old torchy songs).  My mother was mortified.  I just wanted to play the piano and wear nice dresses!
  6. A few years later, after watching early police shows about women officers (remember, “Get Christy Love?”), I thought about becoming a police officer.  (I wanted to karate chop my way through the world of crime or something.)
  7. I still sing the old torchy songs but only when I cook and think no one’s listening.  (Thor’s caught me unawares several times!)

I haven’t been able to post the “widget” on the right of the blog page.  I followed the instructions provided but, alas, to now avail.  (And yes, I’m totally computer literate!)  Anyone have any tips?  🙂

  11. Curls & Q says:

    I don’t know why I can’t get the code to show up in my post. One of my comments didn’t post either. I don’t know why you have “The in the text box where the award picture should be. Just go to my site and copy the code and paste into the text box – it shows up correctly there.


  12. Curls & Q says:

    Hi Again, I posted the info on my site. I wrote the code to put in a new text widget. Their site was not helpful. Copy and paste this code in your text widget, (this misspelling of “award” is at their site so don’t change it. 😎


  13. Curls & Q says:

    I didn’t put it permanently at my site, I just imported it to the post. I think I will put it permanently, just choose the text widget, paste the link info into it, and select which numbered spot you want it to show up in. It should work.


  14. Which widget did you use? I have the image on my HD.


  15. iknead2knit says:

    About the freckle thing, me too.


  16. Curls & Q says:

    Thank you Karen! What kind words. I love your blog too! I just downloaded the image to my HD and uploaded – I don’t use an online photo keeper like photobucket, flicker, etc. Hey, we could have started a singing group! 😎 Forgot to mention that I played the guitar. 😎

    If you want to copy the Versatile Blogger image to your widget first right click the mouse over the image and select save as to your hard drive (probably in the download folder) then I uploaded it to Next copy the photobucket photo url and paste it in the url field of the Image widget.
