Passing on the kindness

I was chuffed to bits when the lovely Nathalie from Noas'Libellule gave me an award! Thank you so much Nathalie! She has an interesting, cosmopolitan and stylish blog, so check it out! The best bit about this award is that it was given to me by someone that reads and enjoys my blog - who knew?! It means a lot to me :)

There are some rules that come with the award, one of which includes passing it on so I will be sending some emails out to a few of my favourite blogs! You also have to share seven things about yourself, so here goes...

1. I married my husband after only knowing him for five months - best thing I ever did! A romantic whirlwind, one day I'll have to tell you about how he proposed, it was magical!

2. I worked for five years as a University lecturer before quitting and getting a job on a make up counter, which was the best job I ever had!

3. My lifelong ambition was to be a mum - success!

4. I practiced Rollerderby until I broke my elbow - my derby name is 'Thunder Bird'

5. I could live off Coca Cola and I have no fillings!

6. I would love to own a pick up truck - preferably a Warrior with monster wheels

7. I love Joss Whedon

So there you have it! Seven random things you didn't need to know about me!! ;)

In other news I now have this:

An EMPTY divider, which can mean only one thing! I've finished my 'does not compute' blocks! Yes I have!!

Here they all are, some still waiting to be pressed and then sewn into rows to make the long awaited quilt top! Stay tuned... you never know I might get the thing finished for a certain upcoming Friday (not this one, this week's TGIFF is at Quilt Matters, truly thank goodness!)


  1. Hey! Your blog is great, totally deserves the award! Love the 7 random things about you...

  2. Congratulations, Lucy! Do I have to be wearing skates to call you Thunder Bird? Can't wait to see the quilt!

  3. Just stopping in for a quick hello! Congrats on your award, it's well deserved!
    PS..I have a few friends in roller derby. Totally wish I had the guts to join...they rock!

  4. Ha ha! Love the roller derby name. I'd love to try that someday, but maybe avoid breaking anything. :) Does that mean your Does Not Compute quilt will be your TGIFF! finish? I'm so curious about that project.

  5. Yay! Congrats on the award!

  6. How cool are you!!! Congratulations!

  7. Have you shown this does not compute quilt before? I'm curious about it!! Congrats on finishing your blocks. :)

  8. Congratulations! Love your seven random things!

  9. Congrats on the award! How cool is that? :-). I'm way too much of a chicken to try anything like roller derby so have a lot of respect for people who do!

  10. Wow, you really didn't know your hubby very long before you married him. (Neither did I) Congrats on the award, it was fun to find out seven unknown things about you.

  11. Congratulations! On the award and finishing your blocks. Can't wait to see it!
