An Award

I want to thank Pat from Hooks and Books, and Eileen from Crochetattic for awarding me the Versatile Blogger Award.

This is the first time I've received an award and its quite a thrill. Now I have to tell you 7 random things about me. Mmmm let's see ....

1. I rarely watch television – prefer to listen to talk-back radio while crocheting/knitting or on computer.
2. Have lived in five of Australia’s seven states as well as New Zealand.
3. Worked for a pirate radio station in New Zealand.
4. Love animals and have never been without a cat or a dog.
5. Wrote a weekly column in TV Week in the early 60s and knew many of Australia’s music stars including the Bee Gees when they were little boys.
6. I still have the teddy bear my parents bought for me when I was 2 years old
7. I love new technology

And now for the fine print (aka the rules). This is what I have to do -
1. Add the award to your blog.
2. Thank the blogger(s) who gave it to you.
3. Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4. List the rules.
5. Award to 15 bloggers.
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.

The 15 bloggers I want to pass this award on to are:
One Yarn after Another
Teresa Kasner
Scotty's Place
Rose Red
Aussie Maria
The Royal Sisters
Underground Crafter

Just have two little crochet items to show you - another kitchen towel hanger. I made this for my good friend L. and gave it to her when we had lunch together today.

.... and hat number 23.

Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of the week.


  1. You sweet thing! I'll post about it tomorrow. (I'll need time to think of 7 random things!) I was blown away by the things you posted about yourself. What an interesting life you have lead. The Bee Gees, huh? When one of my kids was small he would say when he grew up he was going to be one of the Bee Gees. He absolutely loved them. Now that he's nearly 40 we tease him about it because he's a far cry from that -- he's a sheetmetal foreman.

  2. I love the hat!

    Congratulations on winning, and thanks for sharing the award with me!

  3. Thank you so much for the award Dorothy. I prefer not to join in though.
    But the award certainly bought out some very,very interesting things about yourself

  4. You are more than welcome Dorothy.. :))

  5. Hi Dorothy, I loved hearing about your 7 things. I will thank you on my blog.. but I don't pass them on as so many don't do the award thing and it puts them on the spot. But that being said, it's an honor that you thought of me. I consider you a friend.

    Sorry about your pup.. I don't know what we'll do when our little Cairn leaves us.

    ((hugs)), Teresa

  6. Well thank you! It's been ages since I've had a blog award! I love the random facts! You find out the most interesting things about people!

  7. Congrats to you on your award and to those you passed it along to. Love the hat, such fun colors.

    Enjoyed the 7 things about you, you've done some interesting things.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I really appreciate hearing from you. xox
