Leibster Award/Me Made May

Way back at the beginning of March, I was nominated by Paola
for a Leibster award.  Now, everything has got in the way of my blogging since then.  In fact on many an occasion I have had to choose between typing up a post and sewing and guess what?  Sewing won every time.  I now have a small backlog of projects.  Anyho, with Easter approaching what better time to play catch up!  I hope you don't mind Paola, I haven't been ignoring you, merely procrastinating.



The rules of the award are, as I understand, that I need to answer the questions set by the nominator and then pass the award along to blogs with under 200 followers.  Let the games begin :)

1:  What is your greatest achievement?

My answer to this question is probably pretty predictable considering I am a Mother of 3 but I have to say my children.  I have 3 children aged 10, 15 and my oldest who will be a fully fledged adult of 18 years old, in two months time.  I am not sure I am ready to be a mother of an adult child!

2:  What motivates me?

I have a lot of different motivations for doing what I do.  Where sewing is concerned, I am motivated by sheer enjoyment of what I do.  In other areas of life, including my work, my kids motivate me in all sorts of ways.  They are all achievers in different ways and I try to lead by example.

3:  What is number one on your bucket list?

I actually don't have a bucket list, partly because I would rather live in denial but also because I would rather achieve what I want to achieve now than in some point in the future.  More travel would be nice as the kids get older though.

4: I find $100 on the pavement, what would I spend it on?

I could think of all sorts of nice things to spend it on.  I tend to get buyers remorse after a shopping trip so a bonus $100 would probably ease my guilt.  In reality though, it would probably just go in my wallet to be used for boring stuff like bread and milk!

5:  Summer or winter, which do I prefer?

Easy peasy....summer all the way.  Winter here tends to be cold and damp and I love the outdoors and sunshine.  I love camping, the beach and barbeques.  I also like making dresses and summer fabrics are just so much more pretty than winter fabrics.

Now, the last bit of the award, I am going to renege on a bit because I am so late with it and everyone else seems to have already received it but thank you Paola for nominating me.

Now while I am playing catch up with the house keeping, I have decided after much debate to sign up to "Me Made May" again this year.  I know the daily photographs can be a bit tedious but I do like looking back at the outfits I wore and it does force me to think outside of the box when I dress each morning.  So let's see what I can come up with this year.

 'I, Andrea of Fabric Epiphanies blog, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '14. I endeavour to wear  me-made clothing each day for the duration of May 2014'

  2. It must be that time of the year, cause I too have had to make the choice of sewing or blogging and sewing has been the winner.
