Karen passed on this award to me today. Thank you so much! I do treasure my friends here in this XS world. Many of you I would never have met or even known. How sweet is that? Can I tell you how much I love connecting with this group of XS friends on the net and in person? I truly do; oh, & I love XS, too. :)
There are many of you who have received this award already, so I'll try not to name you again.
Here's a description of this special friends award:
These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbon's of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these kind writers. When you pass the award along please include these guidelines. Choose eight friends to share this with.
So here's my list and I would love to include so many more......
Kathy K., Kathy H., Kelly, Sadie, Shelleen, Rene, Meari, Cameo, Gabi, & Donna.
I cannot lie - for those that counted the names, I confess - I named ten... (hanging head in shame - not really!)
I received a giveaway chart from Kathy K. this week. I think this is going to be a pass-along. Kathy signed and dated it and when I stitch it, I'll do the same and then post for a giveaway to the next lucky person. Isn't this such a cool idea? Wonder how far this one can go?
Kathy also included some of the GAST needed - thanks, Kathy! Note my little "helper" with the threads - yep, the demon Zoe herself. Though I must say, she is much improved since Indiana's death. Very strange, indeed. To say that she and Montana have "bonded" is really stretching it, but he's no longer afraid of her hisses and swats. Obviously, she hasn't bitten him yet. He's just a clueless pup who doesn't realize the utter seriousness of her attacks! LOL
I'm almost done with Ebb Tide and I do like the blue used in the Scotch and small Rhodes' squares. On with the border and it's a wrap.
And on a final note, my mom and I are going back to the retinal specialist today. She has dry macular degeneration which unexpectedly turned into wet (hemorrhaging) in her right eye. Mom's first injection in that eye helped tremendously, though it's been such a gradual change, she can't tell as much. The doctor literally had tears in her eyes when she saw the results of Mom's OCT scans, etc. She's a real keeper, BTW. After receiving that encouraging news, Mom's left eye suddenly seemed a little blurry. Since we're ultra paranoid now about any type of vision change, hoping it's not another hemorrhage, I called the dr. We don't think it's really anything wrong this time, but she wants to check her, just to be safe. My mom is ultra independent and an avid reader; to lose sight in both eyes would be a major blow, as it would be for anyone. But we're praying for the best. Hugs to all.
