Sewing, crochet, ladiesrun and even some stitching

Hi all, how are you doing.
It has been a while.. to busy work, to busy with all kinds of things..
So I think it will be a long post!!


I first wanne start with today 
some of you saw it already on Facebook or Instagram
Nearby today was organized all kinds of runs... kids did the kidsrun .. for them the very first time.. the other times, I had to cancel it.. but now.. they had a run that was long.. it was 1.31 km.. ( next time need to look for a shorter one). Noah got the 38th place and kira the 55th place. 
As you can imagine I'm a very proud mom
And I.... I run the ladiesrun 10 km... it was my first 10 km.. and i did a very great job. 
I got a 2nd place.
From 4 km till 8,5 I was the number 1. but the woman who I walked the first 4 km with past by me for the last 1.5 km.. and she earned it.. I got 2nd.. it was awesome!!!
I got a medal and a trophy... So today I feel so lucky

My training for the 10 km stopped today.. tuesday I starting the traing for 15 km.. 
Since a week I have a inflammation in my heel ( hubby has a bad one for 9 months now) .... you can almost think its contagious.. hihi.. both was because of bad shoes... so buy good shoes.. it's very painfull.. thankfully I can still run

Kids are very active too.. last week we had the evening walks... it's organized in the whole country all on different weeks...... You need to walk 4 evening and can choose 5 of 10 km and then you get a medal.
last year I did it for the first tme with the kids.. and again we enterd.
The last evening was heavy.. but they did it.. #soproud
I also organized it that the patients from my work entered.
14 from the 18.. it was so great to soo so many volunteers wanted to help me, to push them in a wheelchair for 5 km. I feel blessed

Kids also go with me sometimes when they have the day off and  i have  a training
Here you see they went along for almost 9 km.. I also have done a 11 km with the kids.. so great
The first half always.. how far is it.. and the second half I can't see them.. they go so far a head.. but with seeing boats animals they always like it

Noah has yesterday another judo compitition
he got a very good earned 3th place!!!
Soon he is going on Judocamp.. it's "thankfully" only for 1 night... but he is looking out for it!!


In my last post I show a little bit of fabric. I made the kids some new clothing.. 
My godchild did his first communion and two nieces where baptized.
That means mommy needs to make something beautifull
I make Noah a Colbert from white linen and kira a dress with a heart on her back and a short pink jacket. as it was cold on the day of the communion I made her a white legging for under it
Aren't they looking pretty in it!!
Kids loved it
Kira is happy she can finally wheer it too school now.. 

At the baptize Noah went in the front of the church
He know what to see.. and it went very good... the pastorasked who know what he just told.. and Noah was the only who put his finger in the air ( as always:) )
I needed to be fast with my picture.. hihi... he loved it

~ ~ ~

I'm still not stitching.. but Kira is.. last December she got a package.. and this week she asked for it again.. she know knows how to go it.. When we wnet to bring Noah to Judo , she sat on the floor and stitched.
While know was doing judo on the background.... ♥

My father in law is retired now, and for the farewell lunch 
I wanted to make a new top from satin fabric
Kira made the pic's of me.. I loved it very much . on the back a silver ribbon
Here you can see what I did with my hair
( it's hard to take selfies for me..:) hihi)
 The front
and a bit of the bac.
As you can see i closed the back a bit more.. I like to where a bra without everyone seeing it.. it was too far open.. now not anymore =))


A whle back I saw for the very first time a pancake plant or chinese mint plant also called..
I needed to order it on Instagram..a nd a week later it was in my mailbox.. look at the cute.. 
 Kids asked when we could eat pancakes.. hihi..
No it's called that way because the leaf looks like a pancake
My green garden is growing very well.
We already can eat out of it.. 
Her you can see the kids plants more in it and kira eating the radish ( did not made a pic of Noah.. he promissed me to try every thing, but he was eating like he was dying....hihi)
The arugula I;m eating almost every day.. so yummy!!!
Hope soon to et more things


A few weeks ago on 2nd Pentecost we went to a farmstead , theer where organized all kids of games and you could try all there products
They had a blast and earned some medals...
That afternoon there was a horse concour nearby, so we went to take a look

All of you are so fit! Congrats to all of you on your competition results! And good shoes are definitely worth the money.

Love all your sewing. That heart cut-out is adorable and you look great in the new top.

So nice to read that you guys are having a good summer and enjoying so many family activities.

Stitching Noni zei

Oh wow! What a great catch up post!! You all wear me out reading about the runs and walks and judo!! Well done to you and the kids on your medals! Fantastic :o)
Sorry that you're still not stitching... but you are certainly making up for it with your gorgeous sewing :o) and maybe Kira will get the stitching bug well and truly now!
Look after that heel injury... both hubby and I have had the planter fasc... (can't remember how to spell it) and if you have the same thing it is very painful at times! Heel spurs are also very painful... Good shoes really are a key thing when you're on your feet so much :o)
Hugs xx

Loved catching up with you and the kids, Annette! You are so busy--can you send me some of your energy :) I love that you are all a running family--so nice to share a hobby! Congratulations on getting 2nd place--what an achievement...

I'm so sorry to read about your heel pain. It sounds like Plantar Fasciitis to me--have had it and it is horrible. Mine took about 6 months to get better.

The kids outfits for the communion and baptisms are so beautiful--you are one talented seamstress. And how sweet that little Kira is working on some stitching. Wonderful job on your new satin top, too--I know that isn't an easy fabric to sew with.

Kira's new bedroom set is so wonderful! I would have loved having something like that when I was a little girl :)

Enjoy the rest of your summer, Annette!! Hugs from the U.S. :)

Leuke, lange post!
Jammer dat ik jullie niet zag bij de julianatoren.
Geweldig he , die trotse snoetjes wanneer ze een medaille hebben gewonnen.
Heb je nu het "naaivirus"te pakken? Ziet er leuk uit wat je allemaal hebt gemaakt.
