"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."- Leonardo da Vinci



I had a wonderful surprise this week! Christine from Denmark has been following my blog and awarded me the below distinction!!
Words cannot describe how honored and thrilled I am to be acknowledged this way!  To know that other people, across the world, read my posts and enjoy them is very exciting. Of course I knew my friends all love my blog (how could they say otherwise ;-)?), but to know that other people, people I do not personally know, read my posts and appreciate them is awesome!
I was giddy and annoyingly happy all day.
So now it’s my turn to pay it forward and mention 3 inspiring blogs. I have to say it’s hard to narrow it down, so I decided to go with 3 knitting blogs I enjoy following immensely, they are FPK, a friend to knit with and Tricotaria.
Now here are 3 random facts about me:
#1. I just got a Kindle and loaded it with over 100 classics (when will I ever find the time to read all this?)
#2. I have registered for a kitting course @ Espace Tricot (I know, shocking, I am not all knowing.... at least not when it comes to knitting….)
#3. I am addicted to the Food Network.
Once again, Thank You Christine, you made my day!


  1. Monica- thanks so much for the shout out! Your blog is great (and now in my google Reader). Can't wait to see what you make next :)

  2. I'm jealous of your new kindle and I'm addicted to the food network too. One more thing, I think you should stop by my blog. I have an awesome giveaway going on.


  3. isn't she the best !!!!
    ( monica i mean ;:)
    You are a great person and now other people are seeing it!!!

    a proud sister !

  4. Melynda, thanks for stopping by! As to following the blog, the same goes for me, can't wait to see what else baby FPK will wear!

  5. Hi Audrey, welcome to the blog, and thanks for the invite. I will certainly stop by.

  6. Sorana....hihihi, thanks, people will think I am paying you to praise me!

  7. haha :-)) I'm a huuuge fan of food tv also. The main reason we don't have all the channels on our tv, is if I had Food Network I wouldn't get ANYTHING done - no work, nothing! :-))) I'd just watch telly all the time :-)))
    Love your facts. Love that you now have over 100 classics on your Kindle :-) Wonderful!
