Liebster Award *BLUSH*

Oooh, new artwork! I've been offered a few of these and most recently by the lovely MaryLouise at

So, here are my answers to the 11 questions she made up to be really annoying! LOL!

1) What do you enjoy most about blogging?
I don't really know. I guess that reading other people's blogs is such a wonderful way of feeling connected all over the world, and having a blog means I am putting something back into that community.

2) Who would be at your ultimate dinner party ? (5 people…)
It would be a potluck, and I would invite: Nigella Lawson, Ann McCaffrey, Marianne Williamson, Sarah Ferguson and Kathy Bates. All amazingly interesting women for completely different reasons, and I think we would get along like a house on fire!

3) What are your favourite pair of shoes you’ve ever owned?
SOOO not a shoe person, sorry M-L! I wear the same shoes all the time until they die. So, my answer is, a pair of flat Ecco slip ons in Mexican red leather with blue stitching that I wore nearly every day for nearly five years. SOOO comfortable!

4) What is your proudest creation?
Another tricky one. I am simultaneously proud of and mortified by most of my creations. That mixed sense of how great it is and how many flaws you know it has, you know? But looking at it from the point of view of how much happiness and satisfaction did it bring to the most people I care about being happy and satisfied, it would have to me my mother's wedding suit.
 Goodness me, that little flowergirl, my niece Zoe, is 11 now and looks 16!!

5) Would you rather have a bath of snakes or a bath of spiders?
What kind of a question is that??? Snakes. Utterly loathesome but the idea of spiders getting into everywhere...

6) What did you want to grow up to be when you were a kid?
Slim. Heh.

7) If you could only have one more overseas trip, where would you go?
Back to the UK.

8) What is your favourite outfit? Go on, give us a photo….
I wore it today - my boteh dress with a short off the shouder linen jacket by Mossimo and a head scarf. Tres Boho. Use your imagination.

9) What sewing or music related thing do you want to have done this year?
I am doing it!!!!!!! Being Constance and wearing gorgeous me made costumes!

11) Star Trek or Star Wars?
Erk. Different things for diffferent times. Probably Star Trek by a sliver, as the follow up series made are all rather good, whereas the second round of Star Wars movies... erk...

I'm meant to nominate 11 blogs with under 500 followers, but all the ones I follow who qualify have had this award several times already.
So instead I drink a toast to all the little blogs. Blogs that for whatever reason have never struck a populous chord but are enjoyed by their followers. New blogs, still unsure whether they will go gangbusters.
Here's to you all, my lovely followers. I appreciate you! xo
