A big update and an award!!!!

Life can be cruel sometimes. In my family lots of things are happening right now. I put all my energy in working, study and relationsships. So not much stitching done and also not in the mood for stitching.

The sun is shining again when bloggerfriends sent me, for example, an award, named:
The sunshine award

Thank you so much Patti for this sunny award. I needed this a lot and still do. You made my day very sunny!

And the rules for this award are:

1. Put the logo on your blog or within a post
2. Pass the award to 12 Bloggers
3. Link the nominees within your post
4. Let them know they receive this award by communicating on their blog
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received the award

Here are my twelve bloggers:

1. Siobhan
2. Carin
3. Kim
4. Simone
5. Angela
6. Mylene
7. Lydia
8. Mayté
9. Terri
10. Melissa
11. Irina
12. Susan

Another example for a sunny day is when I received the PIF from Irina!
The hole package: a little notebook, chocolate, magnets and a very lovely sissorfob!

Did see know I'm a big coffee addict?

I didn't stitch much, but a little. So here is my newest progress: A mother's love needleroll from Shephard's Bush:

And two pictures of the Shores could be found here! You are all still welcome to join this blog.

And at least, but not least: my two big girls, Emma and Dorine, both have a new swimmingcertificate: Emma her 4th and Dorine her 3rd.

So also a lot of good things happened. And this is what keeps me going.
I hope you enjoyd reading my post again.

Lots of hugs and love and till next time...

What a fun PIF package! Hope it helped brighten your day.
Love the snaps of your daughters swim team. So cute!

Patti said...

Glad I could bring a bit of sunshine into your day. I love the snaps of your daughter and her swim team. Also really loved the PIF you got as I am a coffee-a-holic too.
Lots of Love

Carin, I'm praying for you, May the Lord send you many happy times in your up coming days.

Your daughter is beautiful and the PIF is very nice.

Thanks for the award! I am not sure I'll be able to pass it on (I have to much work to do)...
I didn't know you are coffee addict but I hoped you like coffee... Did you notice that the fob-biscornu smells coffee, it has some coffee beans inside.

Melissa said...

Carin, your girls are so sweet and they're doing so well with their swimming!

Thank you very much for the award! Have a lovely weekend!

Deb said...

Wonderful PIF piece. One of these days I'm going to find time to get involved in one of these. Good progress on your stitching too!

Love the pictures of your daughter - she's a cutie!

Susan said...

I love the PIF you received - that fob is very cute.

Thank you so much for the blog award - I recently received the same award from Patti, and I added it to my sidebar.

Jan said...

Glad the PIF brightened your day, Carin, as well as the award!

The girls are just adorable and growing like weeds, but much, much prettier! Know you must be so proud of them!

Have a wonderful and carefree week!
