A Liebster Award

My blogging friend Gillian from Hookin' a Yarn kindly nominated me for a Liebster Award. Gillian has set me a three-part challenge, and here goes:

Three random facts about myself:
  1. My three challenges for 2015 are to master my new camera (so far she's refusing to play), conquer my sawing machine while I'm at it, and take up Spanish.
  2. I'm convinced I would have made a great detective; I don't quite have Miss Marple's nose for gossip but I do have an eye for detail, I can knit and I love a nice cup of tea.
  3. Secretly I've always preferred Persuasion to Pride and Prejudice. I adore Anne Elliot. Perhaps because lack of patience is one of my greatest failings.
Three answers:
  1. Do you prefer to cook for yourself or to eat out? - I'm not a great cook but I do prefer eating in, more cozy.
  2. Would you like to be famous? - Not at all, I believe that privacy is the last frontier.
  3. Is it better to have enough money to live comfortably or would you rather be rich? - Enough money would suit me very nicely. 

Three people I would like to pass the honor to:
  1. Maya at Little Treasures 
  2. Sue at Mr. Micawber'sRecipe for Happiness
  3. Chel at Sweetbriar Dreams

And three questions for you dear honorees:
  1. A gentle flight on a hot-air balloon or a rocket to the moon?
  2. An elephant, a giraffe, or none of that stuff?
  3. Do you prefer the morning light or the magic of the night?
Thanks again, Gillian!
