I Am All That!

Since my last blog post 12 days ago I have done no sewing at all, which is sad and shameful at the same time, yet unavoidable. I've been working super long hours which will be the case until end of May at least and a friend's hen do took up last weekend.

What has boosted my inspiration levels though is my 'I Am All That!' blog award, gifted to me by the very cool Reana Louise over at Curves, Patterns and Pins. I only discovered Reana Louise's blog recently and it's really awesome, so pop on over and have a sneaky peak.

Anyway, without further ado, I shall dutifully answer the five questions and then pass the award on to some fellow sassy bloggers!

1. What size shoe do you wear? If you wear a size 7, can I borrow your shoes?

I'm a UK size 5, which is reasonable for my 5 foot 3 frame I guess. My absolutely, most favourite shoes that I currently own are my chocolate Topshop brogues. I love the small heel, the pointed toe and the un-cool tassles. I would wear them every day if I wasn't worried about causing them an untimely death!

2. 30s or 60s

This is an easy one for me... mid to late 30s! My fuller figure is not made for the mod styles of the 60s or clingy shift dresses either. I have a handful of 30s sewing patterns for dresses, which I am petrified to attempt in case I mess them up. Hopefully I'll get the confidence to try them out soon!

3. Have you ever kissed someone you shouldn't have?

Erm, probably. Back in the day though, not recently!

4. Have you ever been poisoned? Was it by the girlfriend of the person you kissed? That is awesomely "Knot's Landing”.

Why would anyone want to poison little ole me?!?

5.Who's on your "Celebrity Free Pass" list (top 5)?

Top on my list would have to be the yummy Johnny Depp, as I've fancied him ever since I was nine and I saw him in 21 Jump Street. 

Then it would be Adam Brody, for his geek chicness as Seth Cohen in The OC

Then it would be Edward Cullen - just humour me and pretend he's real please!

Then Ashton Kutcher.

And last but not least...Eddie Cibrian.

I would now like to pass on the gauntlet to the following bloggers, who are all very different, but equally as cool:

Hope you all have a crafty weekend!
