I am so honoured and humbled to be nominated for three (3) awards by the lovely and talented Ginger (Sonja) over at GingerMakes, who always responds to my comments and whose posts are delightful. Many sincere thanks for making me feel welcome into the world of blogging!
The awards are:
Very Inspiring Blogger Award, One Lovely Blog Award, and the Premio Award
For the Very Inspiring Blogger award and One Lovely Blog award, the official rules are: 1) Thank and link back to the awesome person who nominated you. 2) Share seven things about yourself. 3) Nominate ten other bloggers and comment on their blogs to let them know. The Premio award recognizes people who comment on other blogs. You nominate the nine bloggers who last commented on yours.
Seven Fascinating Facts About Myself:
- My name is Catja (pleased to meet you).
- I have a mischievous but ridiculously adorable cat named Leilande (he is also pleased to meet you….as he bats something off your table and it breaks).
- I named my blog Gjeometry because I am a bit of a nerd and love the math, geometry and science involved in fabric, sewing and pattern drafting.
- I have a 3 year old nephew, Wyatt, who is not a fan of sitting still (most pictures taken of him are blurry).
- I am new to both sewing and blogging and am deliciously obsessed with both. I’m also a fabriholic, but am attending meetings for it.
- I have an environmental sciences background and love nature, gardening and animals.
- I sometimes run with scissors.
Since I am so new to the blogging community, I am going to combine all the rules and nominate ten bloggers that have commented on my blog and/or whose blogs I find inspiring, entertaining and informative as well as some brand new blogs I look forward to following. I have very much enjoyed reading and sharing with all the bloggers I have found, so far, and the many more to come.
I know that some of you have already received these awards from others and have gone through the process so please don’t feel any pressure from me to re-do all your hard work. It’s just my way of saying I appreciate your blogging efforts and I’m glad to have found you. 🙂

@notchesnnotions LOL,thanks! I’m clearing a place on my mantle now. & You’re welcome. As a new blogger,I’m excited to follow new bloggers.
Yes, thank you so much, appreciated x
No problem. It’s always fun to share the love! (and also see last paragraph of my post, about not having any pressure, as I know many of the more experienced bloggers have been given these awards already). It’s my first time, so I wanted to share a little about me and play by the rules 🙂 Enjoy!
Oh I was awarded before but did not know the rules and so glad now to be given an opportunity to properly pass on the love 🙂
Oh, excellent then! 🙂

I’m glad you feel welcome in the world of blogging– it’s such a fun place to be! 🙂
Thanks! It sure is 🙂
Oh you are too kind! I really enjoy reading your posts!
Thanks! and You’re welcome! I’m glad you stop by my blog and interact and I do really love your blog and your running commentary. Makes me laugh every time! Hope you enjoy the truly groundbreakingly fascinating facts about me listed here 🙂 Enjoy your awards.
Congratulations on your awards Catja and thank you so much for sharing the love and passing them onto another new sewing blogger. When I got up this morning and saw your comment it put the biggest smile on my face as I’m sure you can relate. Thank you again and I’ll be sure to pass on the love to others as well. Here’s to an exciting year of sewing, learning, and having fun with everyone 🙂
Awww, thanks so much Chris! Warm fuzzy 🙂 I’m so glad I was able to make your day. I’ve been inspired by your posts from FB and Google+ and here and have also felt so welcomed into the blogging community and definitely wanted to share that love. I look forward to seeing you around in 2013. I’m positive I will as we have connected in a few different communities now. I will also be taking a college course starting next week and will be sharing what I learn here!
One thing I will soon officially acknowledge is a triple award from the lovely Catja at Gjeometry. Thank you, dear.
And you are very welcome for your triple nominations. Enjoy your awards! I look forward to the “official” acknowledgement. Will there be trumpets, signed affidavits and, ooooh, maybe a parade? 🙂 Parades are fun! Lol. Mostly, I just wanted to spread the love of folks who nominated me for awards and keep it going by reaching out to people and let them know how much I appreciate their blogs and being able to be here in this wonderful blogging and sewing community 🙂
Congratulations on the awards! They are always a nice pat-on-the-back from other like minded people. Off to have a little peek around your blog…J
Thanks Judith! Yes, it was a nice recognition, I felt special 🙂 especially since I’m so new to the blogging and even the sewing community. Thanks for stopping by and please have a look around my blog and join me as I will be posting many more things in the weeks and months to come! I shall also pop on over to your blog and have a look 🙂
wow congratulations on this special award. You are having fun & doing a fantastic job in your sewing. Keep up the good work.
oh oh I forgot to mention that you got THREE awards which is something extra special That’s terrific!!!!!.
Thanks for your support! I’m “Lovin’ Every Minute Of It”. (sorry about the cheesy song quote, but it just seemed to fit).
Congrats! It’s nice to know that your cat, Leilande, “helps” with your sewing. Now if he played guitar he could be a pussycat in my band 😉
Ha ha. Yes, except he would be too busy knocking over your microphone stands and drum kits 🙂
