Two Awards!

My stitching friend Vinniey in Singapore so kindly gave me 2 blog awards a little while ago. I’ve been caught up trying to sort out my car after the storm damage and haven’t been able to acknowlege them until now.

Thank you so very much, Vinniey. I really appreciate both of them. 🙂
I’ll change the award rules just a little. First, I’ll tell you 7 things about myself that you may not know:
  1. I’m African by origin – I come from a small country on the West Coast of Africa called Ghana, which was a British colony (named Gold Coast) before we gained independence on March 6 1957 (the year I was born)

  2. I’ve called Australia home this past 26 years – I first landed in Melbourne at 7:30am on 1 April 1984

  3. I have a double degree in French and Spanish and speak 5 languages, including 2 Ghanaian languages and English

  4. I’m awestruck by the beauty of nature and love to grow flowers and vegetables

  5. I had a near-death experience in 2008 as a result of which I’ve stopped sweating the small stuff

  6. My children think I’m a crazy cross stitch obsessed mum who refuses to go to rehab

  7. When I grow up, I want to be an artisan – working with fibre and fabric 😉

Now, instead of selecting up to 12 other people to pass the award to, I want to express my deepest appreciation to the stitching and crafting community who share through their online presence  their passion, their skills and know-how as well as their friendship. My involvement in craft through my stitching  brings me peace and a deep connectedness to others, so I say:


 Thank You, Thank You, Thank You to all of you who contribute to this wonderful global crafting community


Wishing you all a Happy Easter.  Hope you can fit a few more stitches during the short break and take care not to get chocolate on your fabric!

Happy Stitching 😉


Certified X-stitch addict and lover of tea, fabrics and beads. I work in the vocational education and training sector and in my spare time potter around in the garden growing roses. I'm mum to two adult children of whom I'm very proud.
