Thanks for all the well wishes, the tummy is doing much better. I had a slight case of it this time, maybe it is because I've had the stomach flu so many times in the past 10 years of being a mother that I'm becoming immune to it! LOL!
Anyway on with the show! Today (must to my delight and surprise!) I had a package in my mailbox! Whoot for me :) It was the USEBB ornie exchange *already* (mine's not done yet...shame on me!) from Becky K. She made me a lovely hardanger christmas tree:
Isn't it fabulous?! I love it and our initials on the back! I shall always remember it each year as I lovingly hang it on my tree! Thank you so much Becky...it is perfect! Becky also spoiled me (and my family) ROTTEN! Here's a snap of all the many extras she sent us:
She gave me a loose feathers chart...I had just been admiring this on one of our fellow blogger's blog, now I have my own copy!, she also sent me a tin of altoids (LOVE THEM!) and a cute snowman tin, two BIG cadbury chocolate bars (I'm not sharing), 5 handmade icicle ornies (for my 5 little icicles ~Keith (dh) and kids~) this brought a big smile to my face and they are hanging on our tree right now! Becky sent along 4 coloring books for my little devils, I mean angels, and Ellie the queen bee, is coloring in it as I type. She enthusiastically told me that she "wuves puppies" interpreted she "loves puppies". Becky also included a lovely handwritten card with a sweet note to boot! Thanks Becky K, you made my day! (awww...that rhymes!)
Next up ~ that sleuthy elf ~ has STRUCK again! The mysterious Santa's Helper has once again struck at my house! My daughter Katie was gifted on Monday....and today I was gifted! That sweet guy or gal...whomever it may be ;) .....sent me a lovely skein of GAST misletoe. I think I'll hang it over a doorway and make my husband kiss me tonight! *wink* *wink*
Thank you sweet elf - whomever she/he may be! I appreciate your thoughtfulness and your kindness, it makes me smile to think someone thinks enough of me to gift me! And dear elf...YOU are making quite a stir!
On a side note....Ellie, who has become a most delightful sentence maker....told me this morning in no uncertain terms this: "Mom, Ellie is funny!" here I said, "MmmHmmm." then I guess she didn't think she had my attention so she then stated: "I'm pretty too!" Glad to know that she has a strong sense of self confidence. Yep, she's a princess for sure! LOL!
Finally, did you hear the angels singing?! I know I've been giving them quite a work out lately, but FINALLY, and I mean finally...I got my USEBB ornie stitched. Now on to the finishing.
Thanks for visiting and all your lovely comments and gestures :) Until next time - keep on stitchin'!
