Wednesday WIP & Blog Award!

Hi sweet friends, hope you are having a wonderful week thus far.
I've started a new spring cross stitch and here's how my WIP looks at the moment~
There's a lot to do so I'll have to muster all the patience and stamina I've got to stick with it and get it done before spring's over!!! Don't those little carrots look sweet and good enough to eat?!!
I also have to say a heartfelt thank you to Steph of Front Porch Primitives for awarding me the Versatile Blogger Award. It's appreciated because it's so encouraging to think other bloggers enjoy your blog. I just want to pass on the award to all my readers as there are many more than 10 other blogs which I love and could nominate.

I'm also supposed to tell you 7 random things about myself so here goes!

I'm a bit of a tomboy and when growing up with my two brothers I climbed a very tall tree after them and ended up getting stuck - Dad had to bring a very tall ladder to rescue me!

Thankfully I have never had a broken bone, but was bitten by a dog in the face and needed stitches - they've all healed. And I still love dogs!

I love shopping!

I would love to visit all 50 US states - I'm only a quarter of the way round them!!

Chocolate is my favorite food! But I do have a very sweet tooth!

Reading is probably my favorite 'me' time activity and the Bronte sisters are my favorite authors.

All I want to be when I grow up is a good/godly mommy to my three precious children.

Whew! That took ages! i'm really just a shy person with not a lot to say!

But thanks to you all - you make blogging worthwhile!
Best wishes until next time!

    Can't wait to see it all done. I love your blog and you have been so friendly to me. Thank you. I loved climbing trees as a child too. I still would do it if no one was around and if I was possitive I could get down:)

Your blog and posts are always so warm and inviting, I took you for a very social sort.....But then, again, if you can believe it, I'm actually somewhat shy myself....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
