Double Whammy!

Hello everyone! I've been missing you all because I've been out of commission for a few days due to illness (again), any more of that nonsense and I'm off to the knackers yard! Anyway, I'm back in fine fettle again and having a lovely time catching up on all the blogs I love to read.

The lovely and talented Mary has very kindly bestowed the Nice Matters Award upon me - I am very touched (well, you knew that LOL), thanks Mary!! You can find out all the details about this award in my previous post. Now I have to pass it on to seven other people so here goes:

1. The lovely Gill at Lucy Locket, who is very nice indeed and I love to read her blog.

2. Another lovely, kind person - Dianne over at Faery Di's Fibre Feats or Fiascos. She does some gorgeous work too!

3. Val at Val's Musings - yet another nice lady doing wonderfully inspiring things with fabric.

4. A very nice, generous and helpful chap called Graeme who has blogs at Grumblog and Charlie Cornelius. Graeme is also an extremely talented and published author - I've read some of his work so I know!

5. Carol at Taylor's Textile Trials - another kind and generous soul, who will very kindly explain techniques if necessary!

6. Lynda at Purple Missus - for all the same reasons as No.5 Thanks Lynda!

7. Last but not least, the Nice Matters Award goes to Gunnel over at Gunnel's Blog - a lovely lady, whose blog is great to read and whose work is amazing.

There you are ladies (and gent). You now have to pass it on to seven other deserving souls!

It seems to be the time for Awards of one kind or another doesn't it? Well, I have very kindly had another one bestowed upon me (I'd like to thank my agent......). The lovely aforementioned Graeme (see No.4 above) has nominated me for the Creative Blogger Award. I was 'fair chuffed' as we say in these parts and highly honoured, so I thank you very much Graeme.

I have to nominate five others for this award and so here they are:

1. Viki at Pernickety Hat - another talented writer. Viki has a great sense of humour too, which makes her blog a great read (and she leaves me very helpful comments!).

2. Carenza at Lightly Done. I've just recently started reading her blog and her work is so inspiring - have a look!

3. Diane at The Sound of One Hand Knitting - because she is totally amazing and wonderfully creative and fantastic!!

4. Pauline at Life According to Pauline because she is just getting back into the creative stuff and is really good at it! - no mean achievement with two children, one who is just little - very admirable!

5. Jaqueline at Jacqueline's Blog - her work is just so inspiring and wonderful, I never fail to be amazed.

Phew! Job done. Now, all you nominees have to nominate five others. Have fun!

Hi Sue, Lovely to see you back, sorry to hear you've not been's probably because you've stopped and relaxed for a while, I find I'm ok as long as I keep moving, the minute I have a few weeks off I feel under the weather (perhaps we're just too busy to notice we're not well the rest of the time....)
Oh thankyou so much for bestowing the Nice Matters award on me! I'm delighted, I never expected that. I don't always have anything very exciting to write about and nothing very creative to share just lately. And of course I'm taking part in the Encyclopedia of Me Meme this month so it really is all me, me, me! Once I've completed it I'll get back to takling about other bloggers :)
I'm going to check out some of the blogs you've mentioned now, I love finding new blogs, I can't get enough of them.
Congrats on your Nice Matters Award and also the Creative Blogger Award, they're both well deserved.

Hope you're feeling better,

Two of our kids have been crook, so I know the feeling.

Still glowing over your last post and the mention of me being ``lovely and talented''.


Viki Lane said...

Thanks very much, Sue! I'm quite new to this blogging malarkey so it's great to know you enjoy my wafflings.
Just realised I haven't yet put Random Blethers in my links section, so I will go and remedy the situation forthwith.

Hi Sue,

Sorry you have been unwell but I am glad to see you back in fine form.

Congrats on your awards they are well deserved.

I think I might pop across to see Falkland this coming week, it sounds lovely. Thanks, Carol

Sorry you've felt unwell, but on the mend now I hope. Take Care.

Pauline Campbell said...

Glad to hear you are feeling better Susan. I must say I am very honoured that you have passed the creative blogger in my direction,very sweet of you and it encourages me to keep it up. Thank you very much my dear.

Purple Missus said...

Hi Susan. Thank you so much for nominating me. I love to share everything I know - they don't call me the office gossip for nothing :) Hope you're feeling much better now.
