People have had more snow this week!! Crazy! And as I’m sat here writing this, dark clouds are rolling in 🙁 So I am already eagerly waiting for the link ups this week. Make sure to link up and check out the other links too. I’m sure that there will be lots of craft and cooking ideas for if you’re snowed in…or if you just fancy doing something different!
I was so thrilled to receive an email last week from Kristina at My Own Home Blog, telling me that she had nominated me for the Liebster Award! *cue grinning face and fist pumps in the air :-)*
I had seen this floating around on a couple of other blogs in the past and thought it looked fun! A little way of telling people a bit more about the person behind the blog.
So, what is it? I hear you ask…
“The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Awesome! Blogging is about building a community and it’s a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.”
The time had come to make something that was a little more complicated. I had picked up 2 old patterns a couple of weeks ago but was a bit hesitant to use them as I have never used a ‘proper’ pattern before. I have cut around items, used simple printed patterns from the internet and freestyled a bit. I decided to go for the Butterick 3664. I wasn’t really sure how to find the year the pattern was made, but it was bought in an antique store so that makes it old right?
