Premio Primavera blog award
I love this award because it really stands for how I like to participate in the blogging world. I love to comment on people’s blogs – and I also like to respond to people’s comments on mine. I think of it as positive blog graffiti – kinda of a ‘Lizzy woz ere’
Yes that might seem over the top but I think if I don’t why not just have a website and post my creations there? I blog not just to chronicle my creations but to also fill my world with sewing chatter – which would be sadly lacking if not for my blog and twitter feed (oh how I love twitter, I know it can have a reputation but if you follow nice people, it’s a nice place to be). I can tell how many hits I get on my blog but it’s the feedback, hints and encouragement that really makes me smile.
The Premio Primavera blog award is a Thank You for giving support and encouragement through comments. This award you pass onto the last nine commenters on your blog, they then pass it on and so on – it’s a major rolling thank you festival! What a nice idea!
Clearly I comment alot as I was nominated for this award in the last week by The Crazy Gypsy Chronicles (a quick swim across the ditch in NZ) and also Zo So (a hop skip and a jump down in lovely Melbourne) – and then the amazing Goodbye Valentino!
So (drumroll please) the award goes to…
- Sew Exhausted: Sewing, Quilting, Crafting, oh my!
- Gardeningnivana: Lovely gardening blog
- Gingermakes: Impossible not to love this gal. She’s adorable. Check out her Banksia top!
- Liza Jane Sews: Beautiful clothes, great eye for colour and design.
- Twisted Yarns: Sews and knits!
- Ozzy Blackbeard: she knits, sews and crochets!!
- Boomdeeadda: who nominated me for the Lovely Blogger Award x 🙂
- Did You Make That: who inspired me to make those crazy aprons – the nutty photoshoot was all my husband’s idea (yes, he’s lovely)
- finally Annabelvita – a new visitor to my blog – courtesy of the Apronalong!
Goodbye Valentino should also be Number 8 on this list but I figured being one of the award nominators means I should play hopscotch and pass it along further in the blog world – otherwise Goodbye Valentino will be doing Thank You posts every second day as she is a very active stitcher, blogger and commenter! Love your work Sarah!
And while I am on a THANK YOU roll….
One of my all-time favourite blogger the gorgeous and tremendously funny Anne from Pretty grievances. I adore Anne’s blog, she always makes me laugh. I sent her some very garish german hound fabrics, she sent me the amazing Twinkle Sews book and some fabric and some buttons. I adore everything in this package and I think the Twinkle Sews patterns will be making plenty of appearances on this blog. Thank you Anne…
Thank you The Perfect Nose. I was super lucky to win her September giveaway. It’s a magazine. I love stacks of the patterns and I think I might try a top for my girls first – with some of the Metallicus fabric I scored at The Fabric Store on the weekend – for just $4 a metre (so I purchased 4 metres of course!). It’s surprisingly hard to find cool patterns for the tween end of the sewing market but I think there are a couple in there that will tick the box!
Thank you to Maria Denmark who has asked me to pattern test her new trouser patterns – I can’t tell you any more but watch this space.
PS: Megan Nielsen is having an amazing first birthday giveaway!! Don’t miss it!
