A THANK YOU for the Liebster Award and my poor WIPOCALYPSE for this month

Hi everyone....

I know, once more I haven't posted for ages... and this time it's because I haven't stitched for ages too :S....
So first of all I wanted to thanks to:
Louanne from stitchingobsessions
Emma from xxxstitching
and Alicia from thecraftyprincess

because all of them awarded me with the

Liebster is a German word meaning favourite, dearest or beloved. The Liebster Blog Award is awarded by bloggers to other new bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers, to help spread the word about their blogs and to help them gain wider recognition.

AND the T&C of this award as you might know by heart by now:
  1. Choose 5 up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers to award the Liebster to.
  2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
  3. Post the award on your blog.  List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites.  Leave comments on their blogs so they know about the award.
  4. Share 5 random facts about yourself that people don’t know about you.

2. and 3. are done... let's go for the 1. (this was hard because I wanted to give them to all the blogs I follow, so I decided to focus on the last part and help other friendly stitchers getting a few more followers, in no specific order:)

2 - Tamara at Intricate Stitches
4 - Shannon at A bit of this and That
5 - Topcho at Bla. Bla? Bla! (she's also having a giveaway for reaching 100 followers ;))

Now the interresting part for you... the 5 random acts abut me:

1 - I'm awful at time managment so I make lists to manage my time... but I spent so much time making them that I end up not having enough time for actually following them xD 

2 - I'm easily distracted and I forget things very easily, if I have to go to do some grocery shoping by myself it's almost guaranteed that I'll forget the thing I needed the most (and was the main reason for going),

3 - I tend to be a very isolated person, although I'm very sociable and almost everybody likes me (at least I like to think so eheh) I would prefer to stay at home by myself for a full month with just my stitching, my pc and my books, than being a full week in a crowded environment.

4 - I'm a bat.... I don't do mornings... and I like my job because I don't have to wake up early to go to work... instead I stay awake during the full night working and that's how I like it.

5 - I read the book "Pollyanna" when I was seven and since then I've tried to have the same optmistic attitude, I do believe that there's always a "Good" side of everything and that the day goes much better if you smile. I'm known for always be smiling and I love to see unknown people smiling back at me (I like to think that just because they smiled for 5 secs, their day will be brighter).

And this are 5 ramdom things :)

Now onto my poor WIPocalypse... as I said on the beginning I barely stitched a thing, so here are the few photos I can share of my progress since the 14th of March...

Spring Exchange for the Emeraldislecrossstitchers Yahoo group (no pics to show because it wasn't received yet and I don't want to spoil any surprise :)

2- A tiny bit at Dawn of Spring SAL from the Friendly Stitchers Yahoo group (I redid this 3 times until I was happy with my choices)
My little start

The thread I'm using

The fabric I dyed

3 - I almost finished part 2 of Sweet Flower SAL from MagicasPuntadas:
part 2 almost finished

Happy Stitches everyone and I'll try to post more :)

Hi Sara

Congrats on your award, I enjoyed reading your 5 random facts and I'm in complete agreement with No 3!

Your SALs are looking great and that thread is lovely.

Donna said...

I feel the same, as long as I have my stitching I am much happier than in crowds of people. Your progress pics are fab!!!!

Congratulations on your award! You deserved it! I liked reading the facts about you.

Anne said...

Congrats on the award! I love the 5 things about you too!! Great WIP's as well!

Weirdest thing with your blog is that I was wondering where you went to and after scrolling down my google reader I couldn't find your blog in any of my folders! For some odd technical glitch, google kicked me off your blog??!? So I just re-joined!! Glad to have you back in my reader!!

You may not have much progress this month but what you do have is beautiful.

Valentina said...

I'm amazed! We have 3 things in common: I'm awful at time management too and I make lists too! I'm easily distracted too and also I tend to isolate myself even though lately I'm less shy than I used to be in the past.

Love your random no.5 :) smiles to you!!! :D

Topcho said...

Aw thank you for the nomination dear! That's so sweet of you, and sharing the info about my giveaway too! Are you joining in? If the widget doesn't work for you, I can add manually :) And I LOVE your random facts. I read them and on every fact I was thinking "lol this is me!" My mm is reading Pollyanna now. We had the book when I was little, but now couldn't find it, so she bought it again :)

Joysze said...

ROFLMAO at #1 and 2. Could it be that you were going to make a list of what to buy and then got distracted? HAHAHAHAH!!! Just kidding.

I hear ya on being optimistic. Life is so much better that way. And heck yeah on staying at home. We're that way too.... homebodies. :D

Oooooh, I like the Sweet Flower SAL. such pretty colors.
