i've been tagged for the 'versatile blogger award'
by beth from boatshedchic
according to the rules:
to accept this award i have to write 7 little known things about myself...
- i always wanted to live in the country..until i got here and was terrified of snakes and so live in the most built up part of town.
- due to many failed or very average essays produced at school i never thought i could write and it still surprises me that anybody reads this blog.
- when i get to choose the movies we watch in this house everybody is surprised when i actually choose one that we enjoy...i know how to pick the duds..they always have an interesting storyline on the case..that's my defense.
- i don't have a favourite colour...or is that really that i do but they change a lot, depending on what fabric i'm looking at or how a room is designed or how i'm feeling on the day.
- i often like a thing until everyone else seems to like it and then i get bored with it.
- my newest project is always the one i like best.
- i used to hate aniseed flavoured food..now i love it!
now to pass this award on to some deserving recipients...
i have just picked 5 today of some people that write about all kinds of different subjects
in their blogs and do it well...
- gill and nic from 'alice becomes'
- laura from 'summerhouse'
- cat from 'raspberry rainbow'
- pam from 'bayside rose'
- gayle from 'garden of daisies'

if you don't know these blogs
i recommend that you pop in for a visit...to these cheerful places
you will meet a few very accomplished women!
now to show you something a little different...
a couple of weeks ago i bought some vintage replica handkerchiefs
from simone at beach vintage..
i decided to make a throw over..
to keep flies off plates of food on a table,
usually used for morning or afternoon tea..while waiting for guests to arrive.
the hankies are light and delicately floral...
please pretend that it's covering a lovely cake on the table,
not just my bowl of fruit!
folded up after use on the back of a chair...
a close up of the seams and corners...
i made seams about 1.2 cm from the border of the hankies
and didn't quite go to the corners.
this means the corners flute up and form a little ruffley bit
which looks quite attractive.
i think my retro hankie throw
will get quite a lot of use from now on!
now...i have to inform my award winners...
