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:
- Marina Kanavaki – A talented artist is this woman. I love her watercolors.
- We Heart Vintage – Photography and fashion starting from the 1920s forward.
- Wool and Chocolate – This blogger is so good about sharing her innovations and ideas.
- Pearls – Pearls-Toronto (aka Cheryl) has such a fun way of describing things.
- Eva Stossel – A talented weaver who shares her work through great photographs.
- Crochet With Raymond – And, by the way, Raymond is a cat! 🙂
- John Grant – If you like old movies, you’ll appreciate these well-written film reviews!
- Project Remnant Redo – A great, eclectic blog!
- The Careless Gene – A most energetic textile artist.
- 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!
- Remily Knits – Skilled knitter … be sure and see how she knit her dog!
- Knitted Notes – The blog’s subtitle reveals what a talented blogger is Ella: “Knitting and blogging in Italy in times of economic crisis.”
- Curls and Q – Eclectic and funny blogging filled with great fiber work!
- Jingersnaps – Jinger is a baker and knitter, and her blog is yummy! (I am definitely making her curried cauliflower dish.)
- 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:
- I wore a women’s size 7 shoe in 4th grade. (My feet grew even longer.)
- As a child I used to hope my freckles would grow together and make me look tanned.
- 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.)
- I was the tallest girl in the 8th grade graduation class; only one boy was taller than yours truly.
- 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!
- 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.)
- 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? 🙂
