Graduation time

 On Tuesday we celebrated Laura's graduation. It was a lovely day which we ended at a lovely restaurant with yummiest Cuban tapas.

Dinsdag hebben we Laura's graduation gevierd. Het was een mooie dag die we afgesloten hebben met Cubaanse tapas.

Here we are waiting for the celebration to start. Only my mother could join us, because Laura only had four visitor tickets.

Hier staan we, te wachten tot de viering begon. Alleen mijn moeder kon mee, omdat Laura slechts vier tickets had.. 

 I had to add this picture. Father and son look so happy.
Deze foto moest erbij. Vader en zoon zien er zo blij uit!


Mr. and Mrs. Pinguin. Aren't they a very cute couple. They are waiting for their little one to arrive, but pattern has not been published yet. Go here and here to find the free pattern.

Mijnheer en mevrouw Pinguïn. Zijn ze niet schattig, zo met z'n tweetjes. Ze wachten nog om hun kleintje, maar het patroon is er nog niet. Hier en hier kun je het gratis patroon vinden. 

I have also made a bag again. This time for my mother. It says summer and Venice all over. 
Ik heb ook een tas voor mijn moeder gemaakt. Zomer in Venetië. 

With a matching iPad cover.
Met een bijpassende iPad hoes.

Van harte gefeliciteerd met je knappe dochter. Laura heeft de opleiding snel gedaan. Nu is ze weer gezellig thuis. Je miste haar zo. Is toch ook weer even wennen, niet?
Wat zijn je pinguins grappig geworden en de tas voor je moeder is super!Heel leuke afwerking met de knopen. Ik herkende Lily meteen op de foto.
