Answering 11 questions

I am presuming that the questions I have to answer are the same as Patricia answered.

1.  What are you most proud of? Not sure I am confident enough to feel proud of anything.

2.  What makes you happy? Sunshine and rainbows.

3.  What is your most prized possession? Probably an aquamarine ring that belonged to my mother.

4.  What are you afraid of? too many things.

5.  Why do you blog?  to share with others.

6.  How would you describe your style? Style? What style?

7.  What are you most grateful for? every new day.

8.  What is the best book you have ever read? The Count of Monte Christo by Alexander Dumas is one of them.

9.  What food do you hate? I don’t hate any food.

10. What is your favorite “guilty pleasure” aka “super dorky” song? If it makes you feel guilty it can hardly be a pleasure.

11. What is your favorite holiday? I suppose it would need to include sea, mountains and some old castles or churches.

I would like to alter the questions for those to whom I am giving this award to the following:-

  1. Why did you start a blog?
  2. How many blogs do you follow?
  3. What makes you happy?
  4. What are you most grateful for?
  5. What is your favourite food?
  6. What sort of weather do you like best?
  7. Which famous person would you most like to meet?
  8. Where would you most like to go for a holiday?
  9. What sort of books do you like to read?
  10. What style of music do you prefer?
  11. What characteristic do you hope other people will most value in you?

Nominating 11 blogs:

In chosing these blogs I have explored those that I follow, people with blogs who follow me, and other crafty people on WordPress.

Anyway here are eleven blogs that I feel deserve the Liebster award. I think that they haven’t received the award before but of course, as always, I may be mistaken in this.

And this is not to say that all the other blogs that I appreciate don’t deserve it too.

BLOGS in no particular order.


Why not go and check out these blogs maybe you will find one or more that you really like.

  1. Nice questions 🙂
    And it’s nice to learn more about you. I’m sorry to hear you say you don’t have enough confidence to feel proud of anything – sounds to me like you have a hundred things to be proud of!!! … the things you make (eg, your snowflakes), your family, your tertiary education, your writing, your blog, your everything 🙂


    1. Thank you so much for your kind comments. I was feeling a little more confident lately, thanks to all my blogging friends, until an old creative friend came on a visit and dismissed my hexagon blanket as not even worth looking at.


          1. Oh, “real art”. hahaha. Sorry if I sound nasty about your friend, I don’t especially mean to, it’s just that I am very averse to people who think they are superior to others. I mean, I’d like to see HER make a decent six-sided snowflake from a photograph!!! … 🙂


  2. Hello Jane!!! I think Jill already addressed the issue, please don’t listening to any one who wants to put you down, constructive criticism Yes, negative mean stuff NO!!
    I like all your work!!! Hugs!!!


      1. It is common usage though! I liked this way (see below) of explaining it which is I suppose how I was using it. It makes the sentence sound more conversational than the correct usage.

        I see there’s as the speaker saying, The situation is – There’s two men at the door – The situation is, two men at the door


  3. Thank you so much for the nomination.. I’ll get busy nominating and answering the questions as soon as I get the chance! I always love looking at your crochet work – your granny squares are gorgeous. Thank you for taking the time to write your posts and share. You are a real inspiration. X


I'd love to hear from you
