For me??? I can't believe it!!!

Happy Monday everyone!!!

Did you have a good weekend?? Mine was a little blah/boring/rainy/bad mood till I received an email from Kim at My Go Go Life, saying that she loves my cheerful blog and that she's awarding me with the Stylish Blogger Award!! I could not believe my eyes!!! 


Kim is an amazingly talented quilter, and her blog is full of inspiration and lovely ideas!! Just to show you what I mean, take a look at her version of the sprocket pillow which has a quilted top!!! See??? Isn't that amazing??

Now the rules for accepting this award are the following: 
  • Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award. 
  • Share 7 things about yourself.
  • Award the title to 6 or 7 blogs that you feel that they deserve this award.
  • Contact these blogs to let them know about the award. 

So 7 things huh??

1. When I was little, my mother (an amazing sewer) was always trying to teach me to sew, but I was refusing. She would even buy me kits for pillows with little kittens, which I still have and they are all unfinished!!! Maybe it's time I finished them... 
2. I discovered that sewing is kind of psychotherapy!!! It helps me be calm, and not think of anything else at that particular time.
3. Until the last summer, I was completely hooked with electronic games!! I would play wii and playstation for hours!! There was a particular game Heavy Rain, which I started playing on a Saturday morning and finished it on Sunday with not so many hours of sleep... 
4. You probably already know this, but I'm a HUGE cat lover... Already on this blog have appeared three of my cats... Dido, Sheba and Xnoudi (which actually means fluff- cause he was like a big fluffy ball-- he's no longer with us... ohhhh our little Xnoudaki).

5. I'm addicted to SUGAR!!! I think I can eat chocolate and ice cream in no particular order all day long!! Fact that naturally leads me to be over weight!! Ohh the summer is too close now, can I lose 15 Kgs in one day please??
6. I'm like a handy man!! I always like to fix things myself!! And most of the times, it's a success!I think that this gift is from my dad!!!
7. This is my biggest dream!! To be able to have my own shop with handmade things!! I know that I've discovered sewing late in my life (I try to be positive here and not say TOO late), I'm already 35, but I believe that with hard work I might be able to DO IT!!! 

Well that's about it... now how on Earth can I pick just 6 or 7 blogs... You've shown me so much love and I feel so welcomed in your community, that I would like to give this award to ALL OF YOU!! But since I have to pick, then....  

Little Country Pumpkins , Darling Amy, I think we started blogging probably at the same time... and she was the fist person that ever commented on my blog!! She's an amazing mom, and an avid sewer she makes so cute dresses, and hats and teepees... she constantly inspires me with the things she makes!!! :)

Sweet Bee Buzzings, Beautiful Beth, has this cute blog, where she posts about all the beautiful things she makes, perfect sewer and quilter:) Has the best sense of humor, she's so inspiring, her comments always make me smile!!!

Pink Stitches, Lovely Bonnie, is constantly making stuff!!! I mean constantly !!! non stop, every single day she has something new to post!!! And they are all so cute!!!!

Not always with thread, What can I say about Amy!!! She has helped me overcome my obsession to constantly point out my flaws... Her insight is just amazing!!! And also amazing are her quilts!!! Her blocks!!! I constantly have something new to see and try to learn!!!

Kelsey creates, I have recently found Kelsey, and I was so inspired by her work!!! Just look at this block she made !!! How can anyone not look at that and not be speechless???

Little owl lucky, Chloe makes the cutest accessories!!! She just had a little blog make over, and it turned out so cute!!!
