Am I a Versatile Blogger?

Vreni has awarded me with the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you so much Vreni, I feel quite flattered, really!

versatileblogger So, being curious, I wondered if I was really versatile – here is the definition…

1. competent in many things; able to turn easily from one subject or occupation to another; many-sided
2. adaptable to many uses or functions

I suppose maybe in the crafting world I am slightly versatile. I can do basic hand embroidery, I can make clothes, softies, quilts, I can quilt (it may be dodgy to some LOL) on my domestic machine in straight lines and free motion! And I can do needle turn applique! Okay, enough bragging - I accept the award!

Now I have to tell you 7 things you may not know about me…

1. I hated sewing when it was a requirement in high school. Even the boys were better than me!
2. We have 2 pairs of geese, one is sitting on eggs at the moment so we might have goslings soon! I love the sound of their honking!
3. I love hand work and I really would love to try hand quilting.
4. I am a ham radio operator, my callsign is VK4FJAR. My hubby has been a ham forever, his call is VK4RV.
5. I grew up on a dairy farm, I miss all that fresh milk! It made awesome iced coffee!
6. I have lived in the same area my whole life. I have roots here, my mum and dad also grew up in this area!
7. I am getting a new kitchen on Monday YAY!, at the moment my sink is propped up on the dishwasher!

And now, I am recommending only a few of my favourite blogs, this was hard to narrow down to five…

Little Miss Shabby – check out her mini joes coat pincushion! It is fantastic!
Kate Conklin Designs -  I love Kate’s fresh designs!
Quiltsalott – Janet’s machine quilting and appliqué are stunning! Something for me to aspire too!
Sugarlane Quilts – Wendy is a fellow queenslander, who does fabulous work and is co-hosting the Birdcage sew-in, 25/26th September 2010!
Cut to Pieces – I have only recently come across Angela’s blog, she is so creative and fresh!

Check out the above blogs, you won’t regret it!
Be Happy,

I think you are definitely a versatile blogger (at least as much as I am or probably more). It's nice to learn new things about you, although I have absolutely no idea what the radio operator stuff is all about :). Wow a new kitchen! I'm jealous!!! And I hope we'll get to see some pictures of those goslings once they are hatched. Cheers Vreni

Oh I hope you do post the pictures of the goslings! Fun! I too love the fresh milk of a dairy farm. We lived near one when I was a kid. Fabulous! So great to learn more about you and congratulations on your award!
