Beach Hut Door Stop and Award

Hello All
Hope your all well and wonderful?
I dusted off the sewing machine and had a play.
I made some beach hut door stops for my ever approaching craft sale.
I'm still learning but this little project pleased me as it gave quick results.

I used bits of material I had knocking around.

All finished - not bad for a first attempt.
I was very happy to be nominated for a
The lovely Eilidh Smith was kind enough to nominate me.
So here goes and I hope it's alright!
These are the five questions Eilidh asked...

 1.  If you had 3 wishes what would you wish for?
I'd wish for world peace (I know cliché)
My daughter having a happy long life
and 5 more wishes!
 2.  What jobs have you been procrastinating?
Oh which one...hmm well I supposed it would have to be painting the sitting room.
 3.  What is your favourite flower?
This is an impossible questions too many to choose from! I suppose if I had to pick one it would be either cow parsley, forget-me-nots or roses
 4.  What is your dream job?
Well when I was a child I always wanted to be a zoo keeper.
 5.  What is the best blogging tip you could ever give?
Just to have fun and write about what makes you happy.
Five Random Facts About Me
1, I like to decompile maltisers  
2, I talk to my cats all the time!
3, I enjoy the zoo more than my daughter
4, I love the taste of envelopes (not weird at all)
5, I may be addicted to crocheting owls
A huge thank you again to Eilidh  (well worth checking out her tutorial)
From what I could grasp the point of the award is a way to discover blogs with under 200 followers.
