1000 Followers and A Handful of Awards

Earlier on this week, WordPress informed me that I now have 1000 followers! Wow, thanks to everyone that reads, likes and comments on my posts.

I’ve also been nominated for a few awards in the last couple of weeks or so. I’m going to be honest here and say I’m considering becoming an award free blog, as the posts really do take a long time to write and my craft time is already pretty squeezed. Rather than doing the full awards posts, and answering 3 lots of questions as well as nominating others, I shall give a mention to the blogs who have nominated me. It’s lovely that others enjoy reading so much that they share awards, their blogs are also fab so please go and visit them!

The first blog is A Pretty Potato. Sophie blogs about crochet and all sorts of craft, she shares loads of ideas and free patterns. I’ve recently tested a project tracker for her and it was brilliant so keep an eye out for it.

Tony Mark P of Yarn Blabber fame writes superb yarn craft posts, as well as reviewing lots of yarny books, go over and take a look at some of his posts.

I’ve also been nominated by H Stone Yarn Craft, so pop over the for some yarny loveliness.

Last but not least, you really need to visit Crafty Boutique by Tam. She very kindly nominated me for an award a while back, so sorry it’s taken ages to respond. Anyway, go and see her site for all kinds of crafty inspiration!

There are more posts coming up from me shortly! Thanks again for all of the nominations and to all of my followers.

  1. Congratulations on the followers and the award nominations! But I totally agree, the awards take a lot of work to complete and when time is short…. something has to give.

  2. You’re very welcome. I understand the award problem. That was super nice of you to mention me. What is even better is that we pay attention to each other’s blogs. I had never been nominated for an award and so I thought it was pure fun to answer the questionnaire and let some superb bloggers I like know I LOVE them. In general, the blogging is for fun and also to talk about what we love to do, because the spouse isn’t going to listen to us much about our favorite yarn, or how this or that square isn’t super awesome. My older brother who enjoys drinking beer and watching football doesn’t give a rat’s behind about my yarn discoveries. We’re all here because we love our fiber hobby, with other creative things we enjoy doing, like scrapping, you name it. The best part is that we’re encouraging each other to create some amazingly beautiful things. Things that will live on after we die, heirlooms that will be treasured for years to come.
