Blogger Recognition Award

28 Feb

Turns out last month the lovely Emma from Emma and her Machine nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award. And I have to say when I saw this last night I let out a small EEEKKKK.


See I first started this blog a few years ago when I was out of work and in a new country. I was sewing a lot at the time but didn’t know many people. I thought it would be a great way to organise my sewing thoughts and document my projects, reach out to people outside my little sewing corner and, well, occupy myself. I didn’t at the time realise how much I would come to love  it. Maybe one of the reasons it was so exciting to be nominated now is that I’m in a similar situation. Back in London, but again out of work. My sewing mojo has been on the ebb as I struggle with job applications. But I’m feeling the inspiration creeping back in. Like Emma I really love the online interaction and encouragement!

My advice to new bloggers is just get writing/photographing.  Don’t worry too much  about perfecting your posts: you’ll find your voice, your strengths and what you enjoy, as you go! And like Emma’s advice: interact with others – it’s the best part of blogging.

Some of my favorite blogs are (I know it’ suppose to be 15 but that seems like quite a long list):

If those I’ve named choose to participate, the rules for receiving this award are as follows:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.

Thanks again Emma!
