Thank you so much Jodie for nominating me for this award, I really do appreciate it. Make sure that you go and visit Jodie's lovely blog too!
Ok, so, on to the questions!
1. Why do you keep a blog?
I like to read other peoples blogs and see what they have been up to and to get inspiration for crafting and other ideas and I was inspired to take part and have a go myself!
2. How did you decide upon your blog name?
Well, I love my home, and it is love that made my home, my blog is about my home, so it just all seemed to fit really!
3. What is/are your favourite creative pursuit(s)* or hobbies?
I think that the header of my blog says it all really! Crafting, homemaking, gardening, travel, depending on the day or the weather really!
4. How has technology affected your creative pursuit(s) and hobbies?
Learning to crochet via the internet has been a wonderful thing for me, I really enjoy it so much and would never have done it without the internet.
5. What has been your favourite creative project so far?
Whatever I am working on at the time! Right now I am trying to finish a shawl - it should be done today I hope. That is my favourite right now....
6. What are your favourite colours?
I wear denim jeans a lot, so as far as clothes go, anything that goes with denim blue. Otherwise, I tend to the neutral tones and then add spots of colour in accessories, both in the home and garden.
7. What are your favourite clothes?
Oh, I should have read this one before I answered number six. Jeans and in summer my birkenstocks, not really very fashionable perhaps but very comfy in both cases!
8. What's your preference: indoor or outdoor?
Winter = indoors, Summer = outdoors! Best of both worlds that way.
9. What are your current reads?
Christmas magazines. I have rather over shopped on them I fear and now that December is here on Monday I am trying to read them all! I have also spent quite a lot of time poring over the pattern for my shawl to make sure that it get it right. Not sure that counts as reading though! I am of course always reading blogs too!
10. If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be?
If I could go back in time I would love to meet Lady Iliffe who owned and restored the house where I work, she died before I started work there, but I think that she would have been a fascinating person to talk to. As far as someone who is alive right now I would love to meet a really great gardener and have them come round and advise me on what to do and plant in my garden. That would be really interesting.
11. What are your plans for 2015?
Some years ago we drew up a five year plan, but we have been rubbish at sticking to it. One of the things was to go on holiday to Norway, so perhaps I might look into that for 2015. I would also like to get a new lounge room carpet and to finish some of my WIP's and other crafting projects that are waiting in the wings. Most of all I want to enjoy life and my husband's company and to spend time doing happy things. I would also like to worry less. I worry about how other people are, I am always terrified that I have offended someone or upset someone or other and it would be amazing to overcome that fear. Sounds as though I have just come up with some new years resolutions!
Thank you again Jodie for nominating me for this and some great thought provoking questions!
I look forward to reading your answers dear readers, so go on, have a go!
