Daniellajoe’s Blog passed this to me. I am totally in awe of her amazing crochet blog. If you haven’t already done so, hop on over and take a look.

I was pleased as punch, to receive these awards from such amazing blogs and would love to share them with some of my favourite blogging pals. So pick one if you would like to, answer the questions at the bottom and spread the love.
