A Liebster Award !!


The lovely Kathy from the Nerdy Seamstress nominated me for a Liebster award, which is very sweet considering I just started my blog less than 6 months ago. I am teaching myself how to sew and am learning most of my skills from other bloggers, and now I get to pass my thanks along by nominating other bloggers.

  1. Thank you Kat! And OMG, I am so happy I learned so much more about you in this post! I have so many things to say! Power lifting? Wow! The going to bed/leaving bed thing – I totally relate to! And I sleep the same way, on one side – people joke that I sleep as if I’m in a coffin, I don’t move all night! 😛 And I was watching the Olympics this morning on NBC and was irked when the commentator said, “I’m surprised there aren’t more gold medal Canadian skaters – all Canadian girls figure skate and all Canadian boys play hockey”. I was like, !)*%^@#(*&$(*@&#$!! Way to stereotype us Canadians, yet again! (lol – I’m obviously still irked by that!)
    And – I love your hair color – you are so lucky!
    Thanks again!

  2. I enjoyed reading this! 🙂 I kind of like reading these because we get to see the bloggers in a different light. 🙂

    I still admire your truffle dress and! that you lined it fully with bemberg rayon! I haven’t been so successful with bemberg for the bodice. :/

    I can’t wait to see more of your makes! 🙂

    • Thanks Kathy. Maybe you should revisit the Truffle dress, it’s so simple to make, which makes adding the bemberg easier. i wore that dress this week and the rayon makes it so comfortable to sit in all day.

  3. Thank you for the nonination! 😀 I am so honored. I confess I LOVE going to bed- but hate getting pout of it. 😉 I will do my best to follow the rules of 11!
