Hello, how are you all today? I am doing a happy dance at the moment xx

WHY you ask? WELL.... I have been nominated for a Liebster award xxx Jan-Maree at has given me the I feel so lucky and excited and honoured that she thinks I am worthy of this  xx

I looked up "Liebster" and it is a German word that translates as ....DEAREST, FAVOURITE or BELOVED ........ now I feel even more special xx

NOW, in my technically challenged world this means I have to wait for Adam to come and  do the ... getting the button/badge thingy .... however, this will give me time to choose WHO I want to nominate/award this to... the idea is to share it around xx WATCH THIS SPACE xx (I don't have a VIOLET post so thought I would slip the colour in here xx)

I was asked about my job... briefly I am a nurse, I work in our local District General Hospital, ... as the senior nurse on duty, I run the Surgical Admissions Unit at night. I work 7 nights .......then I am ready for my 7 nights off. I moan about it at times BUT it must have "something" about it because I keep going back .... AND in September it will be 39 YEARS (!!!) since I started my training.... and THAT is SCARY xx

I have not been sewing ...BUT I have been cutting out, fabric for the binding on the wedding quilt

AND fabric for the Halloween quilt..

Keep smiling (like me xx)
