So, what have I received? Alyssa had her month long Christmastime Give Away recently and I won not one but two days! (lucky me!) And just a few days ago I got the 2nd win!

A hand dyed 14ct aida

The center pattern and card are from Pumpkin!
And this brings me to yesterday... DH met the mailman (Santa for real this time) and brought in a package. I thought it might be those magazines. It wasn't --- It was a BOX! From Canada?!? Hmmm, what, who, how, why? OOOOHHHH JAYNE!
|Can you see the handwritten "in Ohio" under Let It Snow?|
|And Soap Box Winter that she stitched for me!!!|
I would like to publicly thank all three of you for sending me such lovely things! I must have been good this year!!!
I just looked at the clock at realized I have 2 hours until I have to go to the dentist. :(
Used to love getting my teeth cleaned. But, several years ago I had to cancel my appointment (happened to be going away for the week) and never rescheduled. See, I just didn't like my dentist. The hygienist was great but the dentist would fly through and barely acknowledged I was in the chair. Geez, buddy at least look at the chart and call me by name and don't talk about other patients in front of me! Anyway, I put off going, and put it off some more. A year passed, and another, and soon I just forgot about going. Here we are at least 5 years (and probably closer to 7) down the road. I know, I know - hush! And I have a sore tooth. Are we surprised? DUH!?!?! I made an appointment yesterday and here we are. Dreading - DREADING - the results of not going. Can we have another PSA here? Go to the dentist!!!
Okay, rant over. Just do me a favor and say a little prayer for stupid old me - thank-you!
Since this is the 21st and I have not been posting like a good little girl should this will probably be my last post before Christmas. Thank you all for stopping by my little spot in bloggerville. I appreciate all the comments you leave. I really do read them although you'd never know by my lack of response!
ps - I wanted to tell the story about those gloves and getting what you wish for. Last year when watching the Olympics, I saw the Canadian gloves and so wanted a pair. But, I didn't know anyone in Canada that could get me some. The Olympics came and went and the thought of the gloves went away. I might see a pic here or there since and I would always tell myself - I would really like a pair of them. Imagine my complete and utter surprise when I opened Jayne's box to see my pair of red Maple leaf Olympic gloves! I told DH I'd always wanted a pair and he looked at me sideways and asked, "Really?" He might not have known but God did.
