I have received the Sunshine Award from Barbina at Little Things made with Love and MarieAnge from Lokipan Crochet Designs. Thank you to both of you! I particularly like this award because there are things to do. And here they are:
Sunshine Award Rules
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Answer the 10 questions on your favourite things.
3. Nominate 10 blogs to receive the Sunshine Award and let them know they've been nominated.
So I've done the first one, now here's the rest:
1. Favourite animal
Giraffes are my favourite animals. They are so, so beautiful, elegant and graceful. I love that they are so tall and unique. I love the pattern on their coats, I love their long tongues and their long sweeping eyelashes. Yes, giraffes are definitely my favourites.
2. Favourite number
I've never really thought of this before, but upon reflection my favourite number must be pi. Pi is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. We all remember using it at school, 3.14.... And that's another thing that's fascinating about Pi. It has lots and lots of numbers after its decimal point. Some people have fun memorising them, but I don't do that, I crochet.
3. Favourite drink
Hmmm. Grape juice. Red grape juice, please. Nice and cold from the fridge.
4. Facebook or Twitter
I do have a facebook account, but I don't mix it with my blog.
5. My passion
6. Getting or giving
7. Favourite pattern
Oh there are lots of these! One I have been wanting to make for a while is the Chevron Lace Cardigan. It looks absolutely stunning when it's well made, it's a pattern I could not possibly write myself, and it looks fairly simple and quick to make. Who could ask for more?
8. Favourite day of the week
Saturday. It's the first day of the weekend and I spend time doing things I like. I go to the market in the morning and buy lots of lovely fresh fruit and veg, and enjoy spending time with my family, but also reading, crocheting, checking out my favourite blogs, ravelry and my email, and even sometimes do a bit of housework and ironing!
9. Favourite flower
My favourite flowers are freesias. I love their smell and they remind me of my Mum.
10. Favourite country
I need to visit some more countries before I can decide on my favourite. I like England because I was born there, France because I live there, but I'm still searching for my favourite. Considering how old I am, I've not been to many places. Let me think... France, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, England, Wales, Scotland, Morocco, Tunisia, South Korea and Venezuela. Over the next year or two I'm hoping to visit South Africa, Spain and Iceland.
