Liebster Award!

I've been awarded with the "Liebster Award" from the lovely Ann and Michelle from crochet between two worlds. Pop over there, if you have times, as these two lovely ladies have a wonderful blog and wonderful story behind it! Thank you very much, for this award. I feel really honoured! :-)

As you probably all know, the Award is given to blogs with less than 200 readers and the rules say, that you have to answer 11 questions. That's what I did, enjoy! 

1. What is the name of your blog? And what does the name mean?
Originally my name was: crochet. reading. travel. stories. life. love. me. I guess, it's kind of self explaining as these are all the topics I wanted to write about. After a while it dawned on me, that it's actually a horrible name for a blog, so I changed it to the shorter "woolly bookworm". Yarn and books. At the moment my two greatest passions!  

2. How many blogs do you follow?
Right now I follow about 60 blogs. 

3. Do you have a creative soul? 
I think that I've always been a creative being. I used to draw a lot when I was a child, I loved to arrange and decorate my bedroom and I always loved to craft in one way or other. That hasn't changed until today. 

4. At what age did you learn to crochet or knit?
I guessed that I learned knitting and crocheting in school, when I was about 10 years old. I can't remember exactly, though. I really liked knitting, when I was younger. My mum is a great knitter, but somehow I got stuck at crocheting. I really want to catch up on my knitting skills but I always have so many crochet projects on the go that I never find time to do that.

5. What are your future projects?
Right now I'm making some christmas decoration for a christmas stall that my man will have in December. After that I want to finish the top that I promised my mum, then I want to finish the Mario blanket, which I started way too many moons ago. I also need to finish Paul the Toadstool. After that I want to make myself a new cosy ripple blanket, use up some yarn by making some cushion covers. I want to make myself another garment and I promised my sister-in-law to crochet her a cute baby blanket as she is pregnant and will make me an aunt in June. And I think that I will surprise her with some baby-related-crochet stuff as well. I'm thinking little shoes, toys, cardingans, jumpers...
And then I always find some new projects to start in between...

6. Why do you blog?
I started reading blogs when I started to crochet, more than a year ago. Nobody of my friends is into crocheting or crafting and I desperately needed someone to talk about all of the things I made. So I started my own blog. 

7. What will your Christmas look like this year?
I have no idea, to be honest. We will either spend it in Salzburg (about 400 kms away) with my sister-in-law and her family or my man and I will stay at home and have a very calm and simple christmas. We will decide rather spontanious, I guess. 

8. What are your plans for 2015?
Well, I don't have that many plans for next year. My man and I are thinking about buying a house (or rather building one) in the near future, so we decided to try and save as much money as possible for a year. Well, that's kind of a plan.
And we're going to get married in April. And I'm going to be an aunt in June and I plan to visit my little niece or nephew the moment he or she pops out. Great plan, isn't it?
9. If you could travel anywhere, which 3 places would you visit and why? 
Veeery good question. I travelled a lot in the last years and the more I travel the more I want to travel. Ever since my 5 weeks in Peru I'm fascinated by South America! So that's a place I really want to see again! 
I'd really love to travel through Asia (Indosia, Vietnam, Cambodia, China, Japan and everything surrounded) and I would love to make a roadtrip either through Portugal or the West Coast of the USA. Probably not the right answer as I listed not three, but actually hundreds of places, but I'm absolutely not able to name just three places.
10.What made you smile today?
Making a lot of Origami Stars that my man can (hopefully) sell at his christmas stall. These stars are really addictive (I will show them to you in a separate post) and will make a beautiful decoration for his stall. 

11. What do you do on a rainy Sunday?
Reading, Crocheting, listening to music, watching movies, cuddling with my man...whatever comes to my mind, actually. But usually it involves a blanket and a cup of coffee! 

I'm not going to nominate anyone. But whoever wants to play along is invited to answer the 11 questions for himself, just for fun! :-)

  1. Thanks for answering the questions! :-) It's good to get you to know you better through them. :-)

    2015 sounds busy for you! Where will you build the house?

    Take care

    1. we won't start building it for a few years. But we're toying with the idea, saving money (as building a house is presumably rather expensive) and right now we're kind of looking for the best place. But it will be in the small town in which we live now, in the eastern part of Austria, at the lake Neusiedl.

  2. It was lovely to read some more about you! xx

  3. lovely post! Next year sounds like it's going to be wonderful :) I've always wanted to go to Salzburg at christmas time, I bet it's magical :)

    1. Oh I'm sure it will be a great year. How can it not be? ;) Though I'm already getting slightly nervous when thinking about the wedding. It's such a big step. And then it isn't...

      We won't be directly IN Salzburg city, but in a smaller town on the outskirts, called St. Johann im Pongau. But it will be equally magical as there will be mountains and snow and children. It's the first time I'm celebrating christmas with children (= my nephews) and I'm really looking forward to it! :)
