This is new to me, the Liebster Blog Award, but I have an idea what it is now that Sally from the lovely Lavender Attic blog has presented me with it, so thank you very much Sally.
It is kind of a hug and lots of encouragement from other bloggers for bloggers with less than 200 followers, interesting eh!
- Reveal your top 5 blogs and let them know by leaving a comment at their blog.
- Post the Award on your blog (proudly! yay!)
Hopefully the 5 blogs you nominate will continue to spread the blog love.
It's difficult to just mention 5 blogs but here we go with my 5 blogs that deserve the Liebster Blog Award:
Vivienne is a lovely lady, a blogger with whom I share a few similarities so I love to read what she is up to. I can't knit like Vivienne but we share a love of cats, vegetarianism, crochet, fabric and gardening (although I currently don't have much I can call a garden)!
Viviennes blog takes you through the seasons of the year with plants, crafts, food and cats!
Matt is editor of the food for friends blog. It's a brilliant recipe resource. You can source recipes A - Z style and submit your own favourites. It's like exchanging recipes with good friends. They also do restaurant, book & product reviews and show you things you might like for your kitchen wish list and they have the odd competition thrown in for good measure.
Lara is a German illustrator and graphic artist. Her blog is in English so well worth a look. She does lots of wonderful surface pattern designs, I love her illustration style and use of colour. Her designs are used on stationery, textiles etc.
Poppytalk is a Canadian based blog run by a husband and wife team who use the blog to promote emerging design talent. You'll find great photos, some inspirational tutorials, projects and recipes.
Tugbakop is an artist who combines an illustrative style using textiles. I find the work on this blog most inspiring and only wish I had found it as a reference point when doing my textile course a couple of years ago. Have a look at the amazing stitched portraits.
What a great invention blogging is, thanks to all my readers and thanks to all those whose blogs I get pleasure from reading.
