Hey, Friends!Thank you all SO much for your encouragement on the gall bladder attack and removal surgery.I went for the post op visit and everything is fine.I need to get blood work done, and will go back to work on Monday, November 29.It’s over, and I’m progressing well.The surprise has been how long it is taking to get my strength back, but they keep telling me to take it easy.You know, if these four little incisions cause this much pain, etc, how in the world does anyone survive a tummy tuck!
I’ve been very lucky recently!DJ from Tickled Pink in Stitches had a drawing on her blog for a Prairie Schooler, Stitch to Win Against Breast Cancer chart and the cutest pink Little Gems with a precious pink and green scissor fob.How lucky am I?Then Pat Winter at Gatherings had a drawing for a $30 spending trip at the CSN Stores and I was the lucky winner there, too.Thank you SO much ladies!I’ll post when I complete the prizes!
If everything goes as planned, Thanksgiving dinner will be a bit smaller and the house less sparkling than usual, but will follow the tradition of being here.DS is coming to help, so I won’t have to lift the gobbler, etc.
On the stitching side of things, I didn’t win the argument…previous statement… “And here I sit, arguing with myself that I don’t need to start collecting the Blackbird Designs Anniversaries of the Heart series.”They’re all ordered and awaiting arrival have now arrived.
Yes, I’ve been doing some stitching, but don’t want to post the things I’ve been working on since there MAY be a couple of gifties in the group.I will try to remember to get photos before they leave to show you later.
Thanks for stopping by today for a visit – and I always love to read your Needler’s Points.Again, thank you so much for sharing your experiences, kind words, prayers, and positive thoughts.I know that’s why I wasn’t fearful in the least.Have a great weekend preparing for your Thanksgiving!
