Another Liebster blog award!

I'm lucky enough to have been given another Liebster  blog award, this time by Giggles in the Sun, a lovely lady from Brisbane.

Since I've already done the random facts and tagging thing, this time I'll just answer the 11 questions asked by Miss Giggles in her post!
  1. What is your favourite craft? At the moment, sewing (as in for dressmaking), but I've been doing a fair bit of knitting recently - it's really good to have something to do with my hands while watching TV or a movie!
  2. How do you learn a new craft? Usually find a picture of something I like and jump in the deep end... when I taught myself to knit in the round I just opened up the book and tried to follow the instructions, and went from there!!
  3. Have you ever lost interest in a craft and why?  Not really... I used to do a lot of embroidery when I was younger, but I don't anymore - not because I don't enjoy it, but because there's only so many samplers one can have!
  4. How do you make time for crafting?  Usually... wait until the holidays!  I'm not very good at time management, and because I don't have a dedicated sewing/crafting area the 30 minutes a day approach doesn't work for me - it takes me 30 minutes to set everything up and pack it away again!
  5. What does your family think of your crafting?  Not really sure, actually!  Dad just wants me to fix his pants all the time, mum seems to think I'm too ambitious, my middle sister is a bit mad like me so she thinks it's good, and my younger sister is one of those people who goes "Can you make me ____", so I make it, and then it never gets worn - so that's frustrating.
  6. Would you do your crafting for a living?  I don't think so... I'd love to be able to do it all day, but not have to as I would if it was for a living
  7. How did you get started crafting?  I don't think I ever really got started, it's just always been there!
  8. What is your favourite item you have ever created?  My strawberry dress... I wear it all the time, and I love it to pieces!
  9. And already I am starting to run out of things to ask, so what is your favourite weather or season?  My favourite season is the time of year called spring - though up here we don't really get four seasons, we just get wet and dry!  Around the September holidays because it's warm enough to swim but cool at nights, and the stingers aren't out yet.
  10. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?  Anywhere?  I'd love to live in a small town in Tasmania, but I don't cope well in the cold so that wouldn't work out very well for me!
  11. Frosting or cake? Do you create more basic items in your sewing/knitting/crocheting that get used a lot or do you have a tendency to go for the special occasion items?  I think it's more sort of frosting, but not fancy frosting - just everyday frosting, haha.  I'd love to make more cake!  But what I seem to have ended up with are the things that are a bit on the fancy/weird/extravagant side of normal.
Thank you so much for this award - and sorry I don't blog more often, if there was a bad blogger award I would be getting that!!  I do have a number of projects to show, but it's just finding the time to do photos and write...
