And now I am one

I missed my blogiversary by a few days this week. It was on the 17th May, but I've been so busy with:
  1. crafting
  2. children
  3. arsing around
that I forgot all about it. Oops.

As is traditional at these times, I will be holding a giveaway. Simply leave me a comment before the end of the day on Friday 23 May (midnight GMT) and I'll do the put-all-the-names-in-a-hat-and-pull-one-out thing. Just to make sure that this fulfills my need for external validation, tell me your favourite thing I have blogged about. The (possibly lucky, depending on your perspective) winner will get a little handmade something in the post.


And in case you don't believe me, here is proof of number 1 on the above list. A half-knitted clapotis. See - it's not all about the arsing around!

oooh congrats on your blog-versary! :)

my favourite thing you have blogged about...loved your birthday blog and the lovely pic of you and your little man. But also loved when you blogged about the stripy baby blankets you were making (so cute) so can i say two? :)

happy blogaversary!

My favourite thing you blogged about - the one titled "the moral of the story" about your daughter, cakes, and shiny cake decorations. Perfect!

I love your coffee blog! And I love that you have mountains of WIPs. Great about the number of stitches, colour repeats etc. Your blog is top. Happy Blogiversary :)

Janet said...

I have never read your blog before as I didn't know you had one (I think lots of people may have these secret blogs I don't know about) so.. my favourite thing you've blogged about would be the free stuff, as it let me know you had a blog and I can now add your blog to my big list of blogs and read it lots, or whenever you post, so this is my favourite post. I also want stuff. x

Happy blog-versary! My fave thing you have blogged about is your ripple blanket I think- I am in awe of anyone who can crochet more than a scarf (the pinnacle of my crocheting so far!). x

Charlotte said...

I loved your first go at wet-felting as I want to try it and now I know to wear rubber gloves :)
Happy Blogaversary!

Happy blog-aversary! That clapotis is going to be lovely!

My favourite blog posts are about your ripple blankets. They really are so gorgeous.

I liked the coffee post....and I love the ripple blanket.

I've only ever won a box of minty chocolates before and they were horrid.

Happy blog year :)

I kinda liked the daffodil munching cow.....*S*

Congrats on the blog-versary.

I can't remember when or how I found your blog but strangely it was not through etsy and I read about a Sunday brunch....mmmm... and then I have just read and read and particularly like the ones featuring food, gorgeous colours, give-aways and about getting older, so I stalked you and stalked you ; )

I have to say this post is my favourite, because I had no idea what a clafoutis was. (Actually I read it wrong to start with and thought it was something naughty)

happy late blog anniversary!

my favourite thing you have blogged about is your ripple blankets. They are gorgeous and make me want to try to make one myself. Even if it takes me 1 year to do 2 rows: :p

Clothcat said...

Congratulations on your etsyversary! I think my fave blog was your crocheted blanket - I'd never have had the paitence to get that completed (I'm the queen of unfinished projects). Well done.

Melanie said...

Happy Anniversary! I must check when mine is!

As for my favourite things- number one has got to be the seascape felting- so much work and then to embroider as well. The children were lucky to have had a go at felting with "Lakes and Lancs Guild of Felters, Spinners, Weavers and Dyers" so I have an inkling of just how much hard work went into that beautiful art piece. I also loved the dotty felting, and your felt roses. Blast! That's 3!

Your stuff is lovely. :-)

Happy Blogaversary!

I'm glad I stumbled on your blog today!!

Your photos are spectacular! - I love the post about your daughters birthday and the rooftop daffodil-munching cow certainly made me laugh!

DesireeDesigns said...

chendric said...

I loved reading your progress posts about the ocean ripple blanket. I'm amazed at how much work goes into something like that, but the end result is beautiful:)

Congrats on the blogaversy - my fave blog thingie is the ripple blanket. My Dad used to have a piano stool that had a top cover very much like that so it took me right back.

I liked reading about your trip to Cyprus. Hmmm because it seems so exotic and fantastical and wonderful. Thanks for entering me!
