5 hrs sleep on average
4 fraying tempers
3 hacking coughs
Yet in spite of the illness, sleeplessness and additional cabin fever (due to rain and a broken bike spoke), I've been in generally high spirits and had many moments of delight. And here's why:
1. The arrival of this very awesome cassette coin purse, a PIF gift from urban craft. Karen is one cool, feisty, irreverent crafter and blogger. I love the stuff she makes and the things she writes make me think. And laugh. Thanks Karen, love it.
2. This fabulous Babel Fish softie which arrived from Jodie of Ric-Rac. *SQUEEEEE*. I stalked Jodie a bit at last week's blog love-in and professed my undying love for her Babel Fish creation, which I'd seen at a friend's place. And of course, being the lovely, nutty lady she is, she decided to give me one. I love Jodie's work - her selvedge obsession, her fabulous softies, and the humour and generosity that shines through in her craft.
Now the deal is if I'm to accept this award I should also pass it on to some other bloggers I love in return (15, actually, but I'm not going to do quite that many I think... as this award has really been doing the rounds!). Check out these lovely crafty blogs for yourselves...
3 Red Buttons - Angie makes lovely clothes for kids and is the upcycling champ!
3 Sheets - Multi-media artiste Kylie shares her creations and inspiration.
August St - I'm closely following Jenaveve's adventures into sewing. Hurrah for her sewing classes!
Little Grubs - Abi shares NZ green/family/craft inspiration with humour.
Thanks guys for your inspiration. Feel free to skip passing the award on - but know that I'm enjoying what you do!
