I am so lucky!! I have the most wonderful stitchy blogging friends. How I wish I could meet these people.
When I arrived in Arizona this lovely package from Ranae was waiting for me.
Last year I had RAK'd her this time of year and she remembered!!!
Since I missed Halloween I decided to have my own special Halloween and so this gorgeous gift is still sitting on my computer desk with the card.
and the answer to the question on the front of the card - because he was goblin his treats.
Several months ago I sent Wendy a Disney kit that I had purchased and realized I would never stitch. She is a huge Disney fan so it went to a good home.
A couple of days ago I received this package in the mail.
Wendy picked this pattern from my wishlist. She hand made the card and it is gorgeous. Very talented lady.
Cheryl and I decided on a personal Christmas exchange this year. She let me know she received my package.
The mittens are a JBW design and I reversed one pattern so they made a pair of mittens.
Those chocolates are filled with caramel and are to die for. There were 4 packages of them but I ate one before I could stop myself. BTW, my Canadian friends - I can't get them here!!!!!
Cheryl's Christmas package arrived in yesterday's mail. A beautiful ornament, gorgeous fabric, pretty beads and ribbon in my favorite colors and a lovely Bent Creek pattern.
And from my friend Fran at home. When we received the news about our son, Fran stitched this for me. I have not shown it before now as I choke up every time I read it. I think I will make this into a pillow soon or I may keep it for a while and then finish it when some time has gone by. I just wanted to acknowledge her very beautiful and thoughtful gift.
BTW, our son has heard from the surgeon. His first appointment is Dec. 11th. Hopefully we will have some further information and a possible date or time frame for surgery.
I have posted a giveaway on the entry below this. Draw date is Dec. 5th. If you are interested, check it out!
