It’s Womens Day today, so it sounds like a good day to announce that Devliegendekoe (aka Nicolette) has given me an award! I’m a Rockin’ Girl Blogger! Wooo!
Ok, I do realise how inappropriate it is to make any link between my blog about pretty things and the courageous women we remember on this day for their protest march on Parliament in 1956. Sorry. But this morning I saw the flower sellers bringing in extra roses and things, which seemed to indicate to me that, 13 years post-liberation, this day is tending towards “Aren’t Women Nice” day anyway. So it goes, right?Anyway, this award is not just about glamour and photo ops. It comes with responsibilities too! I must share the award with another five blog gals. So, here goes:
1. For her generosity and her endlessly inspiring posts, the incognito author of Print&Pattern, Bowie Style.
2. For her charming enthusiasm and friendliness, Sam of HomegrownSkinny gets one3. For Carson of NeedlesEdge, because of her dry humour and beautifully-constructed posts
4. Lara of KirinNotebook gets an award for her productivity and for inspiring me to make fabrics of my own
5. And because she’s the one who told me about blogs, and because the drawings she posts every day are so lovely, Jesse of Jezzeblog.
