Thanks to Natalie at the Yarn Yard, who has nominated me in her 'You Make My Day' Awards!
The idea is that I should now pass this on to ten others whose blogs I enjoy:
"Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times."
There are definitely half a dozen I can think of right off the top of my head, not all of them knitting or fibre-related, and I'm sure when I put my mind to it, I will probably have trouble deciding which ones to leave out!
That's for tomorrow, work permitting (groan, deadline approaches!). In the meantime, I'd just like to bring to your attention the fact that my day was made on Thursday by the arrival of the latest fibre from the Yarn Yard fibre club.
The Curse and I are at loggerheads as to what the colours remind us of. He's only seen the spun sample, as in the picture, and is adamant that it reminds him of Fruit Salad sweets (not sure if they are still made, but they were a childhood favourite for many kids!).
I'm confident that my spring flowers are certainly more appropriate for the unspun fibre: primroses, daffodils and (red) tulips. Just right for a sunny day like today, to remind us that spring is on the way!
