I have been Tagged!

This is a kind of double edged sword - as it is quite nice because it means someone, somewhere is following my blog - this someone happened to be Sharon

But it also means I have to tag 7 others and
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

I am not a huge blogger in that I don't know many others - I admire and read a lot of the doyennes of the fibre art world but would not be "brave" enough to tag them!

The majority to the people who read my blog sign themselves as anonymous, or admirer - so I don't know who they are!

Anyway - here goes.

7 facts about myself - some random some weired.

1) I have three wonderful sons who I am very proud of

2) I broke my collar bone 2 years ago and it never healed - so I have a strange gap instead of a collar bone

3) I am always amazed when people remember who I am

4) I have an terrific sense of smell

5) I don't like the colour yellow very much

6) I hate "keep fit" but enjoy swimming

7) I love the moon - I think it is so beautiful and magical and to live here - close to the sea. To
have the tides, the moon, the mountains - bliss!

Phew done - now the hard bit tagging 7 others.

Linda - She is my comrade in arms - and has been for a long time

Judy - who is my new cyber friend

Margaret (digitalgran) - who also lives in Wales

Vivien - I like her flower paintings - and she has wonderful pictures of the sea on her blog
(but I don't know her)

Penny - I don't know Penny but I enjoy her drawing and the title of her blog always makes me smile

Shirley - who I have just met in blogland and would like to get to know better

And for my last I will put ........

djpettit - I enjoy the way she paints faces - and from her blog - I imagine she must be an inspiring teacher. (This is my brave tag!)

Hi Karen
You did a grand job and thank you for joining in!
I really liked the way you put your reasons for chosing the bloggers you did. Wish I'd thought of that.

Thanks for your comment on my latest post.

thanks Karen :) eeek now I've got to divulge a list of facts and think of 7 people .....

I enjoyed your links and enjoy seeing your lovely work with fabric - I keep wanting to have a go and then realising how long it takes!

Hi Karen, I have been tagged on my other blog not long ago. I hope you will not be upset but although I will put up my 7 things about myself i wont tag any one as i have a very small number of bloggers i know and some of them have already been tagged.
Love your blog and thanks for looking at mine.

Karen , I just looked at your photo. I assume it is taken near where you live in Wales. How lovely to live where it is so quiet. I enjoy seeing your photos of your environment , and then those of your lovely colourful work.
