Sunshine Award

I have been kindly awarded the Sunshine Award by Laura over at Love The Blue Bird. Thankyou so much Laura! I always love to hear from people who are enjoying my blog and this award really made my day!

So what is it? Well, the sunshine award is given to bloggers who "creatively and positively inspire others".

Part of the award is that the blog writer has to answer a few questions about themselves. So here's a little bit about me...
  1. Favourite places to visit? Italy, Paris and Bath.
  2. Favourite colours? Pink and white.
  3. Other interests? Fashion, I love the work of designer Erdem.
  4. Sweet or savoury (food)? Sweet, especially cupcakes!
  5. Favourite season? Summer.
  6. Favourite gemstone? I can't get enough of pearls.
  7. Favourite magazines? I love magazines, my favourites are Mollie Makes, Cross Stitcher, Vogue and Elle.
  8. Favourite artists/ textile artists? Chloe Owens, Jo Butcher, Kate Wilson, Leonardo Da Vinci, Botticelli, the list could just go on!
  9. Best crafty shops/ websites? Bijoux Beads, The Makery, Sew N Sew at the Guildhall market in Bath, Liberty, The Cotton Patch, Josy Rose, Wool Bath, also there is a small material shop near Wool Bath.
  10. Favourite pattern? Anything floral, but particularly if its vintage too.
