Dzintra and Shari have given me this very special award!

This is a very cool Portuguese Award and it means that this blog invests in and believes that blogging makes us close. Proximidade translated to English means vicinity, or neighbourhood. I am so grateful that in blogland almost everyone is kind to one another and appreciate the others the way they are, letting you know this too! Since I blog, I have made some very special contacts with people from abroad. I even dare to call some of them my friends! And I am definitely not someone to call a person a friend very fast!
The meaning of this award:
This blog invests and believes in Proximity- nearness in space, time and relationships.
These blogs are exceedingly charming.
These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends .
They are not interested in prizes for self-aggrandizement!
Our hope is that when the ribbon of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.
I'm supposed to pass this award on to fellow bloggers, to include the above text in their blog.

I find it very difficult to pass this award on to others, so I decided to pass it on to every lovely reader of my blog! I just want to mention four people who, besides Dzintra, have become very special to me, Evonne, Sarah, Jutta and Mai.

Then, at the beginning of this month Jackie from Jackie's Stitches tagged me.
Here are the rules to play the game:
1. When you are tagged you are asked to list eight random facts about yourself and post them on your blog for visitors to enjoy. This is gonna be fun!
2. Tag eight of your blogging friends and leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to join in the fun if they have the opportunity. (If not, that's okay. They can still enjoy the random facts everyone shares:) Be sure to list a link to your eight friends in your posting.

Now for my 8 facts:
1. I have made things with fabrics ever since I was a kid, from barbie doll clothings, to softies, to embroidery to anything, even my own clothes!
2. I started quilting years ago, not remembering when, put it aside for years and started again a few months ago.
3. I am the lucky mom of a teenage daughter and son and have a very sweet (and sometimes very annoying) husband.
4. I had a heart problem, which took over my life last year, but thanks to today's medicine, they were able to help me from my problem and life has been very good for me since then!
5. I'll be turning a half century this year.
6. I visited California and New York and just loved it there!
7. I love taking my dog Bibi (the beagle) for a long walk every morning.
8. Stitchery is like meditation for me.
OK, once again, I won't be tagging 8 people. But whoever wants to let others know 8 facts about you, please do! In fact, I thought it was quite difficult to do this.

Hi Simone. It was fun to read your eight facts. I was tagged a couple of times recently but am ashamed to say that I didn't get round to listing the facts or passing the award on. Is that really naughty!
Sorry to hear about your heart problem, I hope everything is ok now.

Bloggen ist wunderbar !!!!
Herzliche Grüße, Jutta
