Liebster Award

I have been awarded an award by a fellow stitching blogger, Cleejoow. These have been doing the rounds on the x-stitch blogs for a while now but never thought I'd get one - didn't think anyone was ever looking at mine!

Some background: Liebster is a German word, meaning favourite, dearest or beloved and the Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other, newer bloggers, who have fewer than 200 followers, to spread the word and help the new(er)bies gain wider recognition. The award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting:

1. Choose five up-and-coming blogs (with fewer than 200 followers) to award the Liebster to. (This has been very difficult - most of the stitching blogs I read have already been nominated!)

All of these are other stitching blogs, with a variety of lovely projects and pretty pictures!

1 - Brandon at TheStitchingWino
2 - DizzyTiggy at Tiggy Cross Stitching
3 - Mimi at Stitchy
4 - Lynda at Nothing but Cross Stitch
5 - Jennifer at Twinkle Stitcher

2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

Thank you to Cleejoow from for nomminating me

3. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blogs so they know about the award.

4. Share 5 random facts about yourself that people don't know about you.

1 I like the band Placebo. I mean REALLY like. I've seen them about 100 times now and have tickets for another 6 shows this year.
2 I'm studying Archaeology at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David in Lampeter. I'm a late starter i'm 26 and this is my 1st year. I'm part time so will be 32 if I ever finish and get my degree.
3 I enjoy video games - Wolfthryth is the name of my first character from Lord of the Rings Online.
4 I really, really hate spiders!
5 Thinking of 5 things that are intresting and people don't know has been the hardest thing I've had to do in a while!
