Blog Tag

Apparently I have been blog tagged... Thanks Susan *smiles*

Susan has asked 11 questions for me to answer, which seems like a fun way to start the week ;)

What is your favorite animal and why?

It changes, to be honest. I love Meerkats, just because they are so much fun to watch. I love tropical fish, they're so beautiful and relaxing. I also like big cats, particularly Ocelots. I don't have any pets, although I'd like a cat at some point.

< Ocelot. Don't think I'll be getting this type of cat though!

What do you love to make above and beyond anything else?
That's quite a tough question actually. I just love making things in general! I definitely go through phases, so sometimes my favourite thing to make is socks, sometimes it's garments and sometimes it's cake *laughs* I love being crafty and being able to make all sorts of things. 

Cake or socks?! 

What's your biggest wish for the future?
Happiness for myself and my loved ones. 

What would you say is the worst thing about you?
Hmmmm... I have bad habits, like anyone, but I don't know about "worst". I can be a bit of a procrastinator, and I can definitely be stubborn. I don't like being a learner, when I start things I want to be able to do them properly straight away. 

I think that's why I clicked with knitting so well, I picked it up and found it easy. This might also explain why I don't really crochet - everything I make with it looks like a learner made it *laughs*

What would you say is the best thing about you?
It's always hard to answer this sort of question, I hate sounding like I'm bragging! I think I have lots of good qualities; I'm loyal, creative, inquisitive, intelligent (that sounds big headed, doesn't it?!) and other stuff too *laughs*

What's the most treasured memory you have so far in your life?
I have many. I have been extremely lucky to have had some incredible experiences in my life, and all of those memories are treasured. 

However, memories of my dad are the most precious, as he passed away a couple of years ago. My most treasured memory is actually one of the most mundane memories I have - just a hug and kiss from him in the family kitchen, whenever I'd come home for a visit. 

If you won the lottery what would be the first thing you would buy?
A boat.

What is your favorite type of flower?

I adore Freesias. The smell is one of my very favourite smells in the world. The orange ones smell the best, followed by the pink and then the white. Yep, I have indeed ranked my favourite flower by colour *laughs* So, although I tend to prefer white flowers, with freesias it has to be orange ;)

What's the most favorite thing you have in your wardrobe?
Interesting question - and again, it's something that changes depending on my mood! I love the things that I have made, I get such a sense of satisfaction wearing them. 

Currently my Shalom is one of my favourite garments. But there are times when my favourite thing is a dress, and others where it is my jeans that fit just right and are the right level of worn in *laughs* 

The most versatile thing, which you may have noticed from my FO pictures, is a white long sleeved t-shirt. Boring, but I love how it goes with everything! 

What started you blogging?
After I started knitting, it seemed like an excellent way to show my mum what I'd been making *smiles*

What's the best thing about blogging? 
The community, for sure. I've met some amazing people through blogging, participated in great fun things like Knit and Crochet Blog Week (and I'm looking forward to this year's!) and the Blog Hub Swap. I've won some really cool prizes in giveaways, and had great fun posting giveaways of my own. 

So, yeah, the people. That's the best thing about blogging *grins*

Now, according to the rules, I'm supposed to come up with some questions and tag 11 other blogs. But it is Monday morning and I really don't have the brainpower! So, please feel free to tag yourself and answer these, or any other questions!


  1. Wow love your answers! You can tell a lot about you!

  2. Those are all very good answers, I always love an excuse to get to know the bloggers I read.

  3. You can tell a lot about someone from their answers. I think you're the first person I've ever heard of to say "boat" for the first thing you'd buy!

  4. You answered those questions so naturally! Thanks for giving us a chance to get to know you better!

  5. I have to agree that a long-sleeved, white T is necessary. I have at least 4... probably 5 or 6. ;-)


Hi, thanks for letting me know you stopped by :D
