Thank you Ames and Tash! Beautiful Blogger Award

Thank you so very much to the lovely Ames and Tash for sending me a Beautiful Blogger Award!

This is truly appreciated...

Ok, so ten things about myself....

1. I kept my sewing machine in a cupboard for 4 years before I actually learnt how (or dared) to switch it on.

2. Cath Kidston is one of my heros and I'm not ashamed to admit it! (And Nigella).

3. I had a goldfish called Frank when I was at University who lived for 5 years before ending it all by jumping out of his bowl.

4. I studied History at University (and met my lovely boyfriend there too).

5. I adore fishfinger sandwiches.

6. I get ridiculously excited when Spring arrives and all the daffodils, tulips and crocus start emerging from the ground.

7. I have lived in London for 13 years.

8. I can't start the day properly until I've had a cup of tea first.

9. I could look a beautiful fabric, wool, threads, patterns, buttons, ribbons and sewing magazines all day long.

10. I would love to have a little dog and wish I could work from home so that my dream can come true!

This next bit is extremely difficult, as it's very tricky to pick just 10 blogs to pass this award on to

There are so many that I love and I wish I could add more to the list. Here are just some of the blogs that I am reading this week...

  Vintage Pink
  Ted and Bunny
  Em ay kay ee (Make)

I am sure that you will enjoy reading these blogs as much as I do!

Have a lovely weekend everyone



  1. oh my! this is really so very sweet of you, and much appreciated.
    Thankyou very much.

    I've had one of THOSE days today and I'm only just finishing-up working, and this couldn't have been a nicer thought at a nicer moment.

    I'll start my (large) glass of wine with a (large) smile now.
    Love xx

  2. I have never had a fishfinger sandwich but I might have to try it! Happy blogging xo Ames

  3. Thank you so much for the award!
    (never heard of fishfingers)

  4. Hi Sarah , thankyou so much for the award :0)
    Your facts are great , I'm quite partial to a fish finger sandwich too, and I'm useless without tea .
    Off to try and think up some facts about me .

  5. Thank you, that has really made me smile :)
    I LOVE fish finger sandwiches and as I type I am waiting for my Husband to bring me my first cup of tea before I leave the bed(I am not normally this lazy I just had one of those know?)

  6. Thanks so much for mentioning iheartcrafts in your blog award list! G

  7. Dear Sarah
    Thank you so much for the award, you are very kind :-) I've not been feeling well today so it is such a joy to receive this, it's perked me up :-)
    Have a lovely week ahead,
    Denise x
    PS: I thought Frank the goldfish had an interesting tale - but sad to hear he jumped overboard...

  8. Congratulations on your well deserved award! I liked your list. Frank the goldfish story is sad. You give me hope on the sewing front, so very glad you shared that and giving me hope! Thanks for my nomination, I love your blog too! :) x

  9. Thank you for thinking of me ... I love your blog too.
    At least five of the things you've written could be about me .....I don't get out of bed until I've been brought a cup of tea! I don't like fish fingers though (I think I was overdosed on them through my childhood!)


Thank you for visiting my blog, I would love to hear from you! Sarah :)
