A blog award

The lovely Tina over at Down the Retro Rabbit Hole has nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award - thanks, Tina!! Here are the rules:
  1. Add the badge to the winning blog page.
  2. Thank the blogger who gave it. 
  3. List the rules.
  4. List seven (7) random facts about yourself. 
  5. Pass on the award to fifteen (15) deserving and conscientious bloggers who are nominated for their diligence, demonstrated skill, and achievements in the world of blogging and specifically in the sewing related category. 
  6. Contact the nominated bloggers and let them know they are recipients.
I really am honored to accept this award, but can I just say that thinking up seven facts about myself is kind of daunting in itself...and then I get to decide on fifteen of my favorite bloggers to pass it on to? Is there an award for successfully accepting this award? :)

Anyway, enough complaining about privileged problems and on to my seven random facts!
  •  I love sloths. Probably on the same level as Kristen Bell.
  •  I absolutely abhor, loathe, and detest stink bugs. They are so sneaky and just want to be ON MY STUFF! Blech. They fill me with rage and have been the bane of my existence ever since they infested my apartment during my senior year of college.
  • I played softball in high school, some first base but mostly center field. My parents attended most of the games and my dad took approximately 239475994 photos of me doing all sorts of softball stuff. So, that's documented in case you didn't believe me.
  • I worked at Starbucks for five years and am (creepily) really interested in knowing what drinks my coworkers/friends/acquaintances/people I see on the street have ordered...and why.
  • I was a history major, but don't ask me to act like a history buff, 'cause I'm not one! I loved learning about history but can't readily recite facts.
  • I am obsessed with checking Craigslist (as I've kind of mentioned before) and monitor it daily to see if there are any deals on sewing stuff in my area. Just today I found a sewing machine for $20 for my friend, Steph, and I'm going to help her get started sewing. Yay!
  • My favorite movie is Bye Bye, Birdie. Watch it.
And here are my nominees for The Versatile Blogger Award, in no particular order:

Ruffles & Whiskers
Sew Me Love
Stitch and Witter
Struggle Sews a Straight Seam
Su Sews So-So
Curves, Patterns, and Pins
Seams Sustainable
Erika Made It
Kestrel Finds and Makes
Sew *seam-rip* repeat
Lucky Lucille
Scruffy Badger Time

These are some of my very favorite blogs out there, so check them out if they're new to you!


  1. My god, Kristen Bell is the cutest. It must be a trait for all sloth lovers! x

    1. She really is! I've developed quite the crush.

  2. I'm having déjà vu! I played softball in high school, worked at Starbucks all thru college, love Kristen Bell (she is super funny!), I stalk Craigslist (I sold mt elliptical to buy my sewing machine on CL), and happen to loooove history. I love your blog too, and don't worry about the lining, I only buy reversible stuff to line with bc I get the pieces backwards. Although I sew fast so I'm always sewing the wrong ends together anyway.

  3. Aww, thank you for the nomination too....I think I kind of get why you like sloths, & maybe similar to what appeals to me about koalas - seeing them hanging in trees, it!


Thanks for leaving a comment!
