What a Nice Surprise!

[makeday.jpg]

I've just been given my first virtual award, the 'You Make my Day', from the lovely Penny and the talented Toby at Natural Attrill - thank you very much!

I'd like to pass this on to some bloggers that keep me amused and informed:
1. Cat at Raggy Rat - she makes some wonderful soft toys and her spelling cracks me up! (Sorry Cat!)
2. Laura at Beads by Laura - I'm so jealous of her ability to make glass into such beautiful beads
3. Julie at Little Cotton Rabbits - a talented maker of knitted toys, a closet artist, and a very special mum
4. Fhi at Fhi-Fhi Creates - love her little characters, I'd like them on all my stationery, fabric, lunchboxes etc!
5. Sybille at Magpie Magic, because her jewellery makes me drool it's so yummy

To pass it on, here are the details:
1. Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make me think and/or make my day.

2. Acknowledge the post of the award giver.

3. Display the “You Make my Day Award” logo

4. Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news.

I hope I can manage to do the links - I've just about burnt out my technical knowledge this week!

I did a spot of jewellery making yesterday - crocheted silver wire with faceted black flower beads and silver butterfly sequins. Needs a little clasp then will be good to go. I haven't done so much jewellery lately - the small animals have taken precedence as in a couple of months I will be having a stall at a 'dog day' so need appropriate wares!

Just posted my entries into the 'Going to the Dogs' Exhibition in Boston USA - very excited and also a bit scared! Wish me luck!

Hi Caroline,

Thanks for the award. :-)

The necklace is very pretty. I love the little butterflies hanging from it and the faceted flowers are cute and I like how you've arranged them in threes. Works really well.
