For those of you that were following my post on Brown Bear and the Christmas Charm fabrics, well, your patience has paid off. Several of you are going to receive packs of Christmas Charm fabrics. The winning name that my husband drew is "Annemarie" but Mary Grace was so diligent, as was the Owl Lady, and Pat in Delaware, then Margie and SarahVee, JustSusan, and Lotta in Sweden! You were all commenting almost everyday and so I'll be sending similar charm packs to all of you! I'll be sending smaller charm packs to a couple of you that also commented fairly often and you are Ida, Janelle, CieAngel, and Crispy. (And in case, I have extras, I might add a couple more. ) I loved reading the comments!! I was planning to get busy with "Christmas in July" and start cutting square right after the 4th of July.
Now unfortunately, I am still in pain and it is just not going away so there'll be no cutting of fabric or any sewing anytime soon. The MRI is not until Friday but come tomorrow morning I'll be calling the doctor to say "it can't wait that long"!! You all know you are winners and some of you have won gifties from me before so you know I send good little packages that are worth waiting for so hang in there and good stuff will come your way. Oh, and be sure to send me an e-mail with your mailing address but no hurry on that yet. I can't sit at the computer long enough to send individual e-mails to all of you right now.
One last thing......today is my son's birthday! He was born in 1976 and I remember July 4th of that year and the tall ships that sailed into New York Harbor. I remember, too, that I had a terrible back ache all that day and knew and hoped that "my time" was imminent. He was, after all, almost two weeks overdue! Well, that pain ended up being gone by the next morning when he was born. This pain seems to want to stay around and I'm not sure what the end result will be. Say a little prayer that this will all get resolved soon as I am getting mightly tired of not being able to sew or blog. I am getting in some handwork so it's not a total loss. Take care all and have a good day!
