Updating and an Award

Good morning everyone, it seems I have adopted a get up before daylight policy!lol. I have already had a few cuppas and decided to go ahead and post while I had the oportunity as I will be keeping my grannephew while Mike has surgery on today. They are going to put a rod in his thigh and rebuild his right ankle that was crushed on today. Please keep him in your prayers and thoughts. This is a pic of my son, I did promise not to show the pic of his side and stomach where he was burned by the asphalt. But I did want to share this pic of him today. His glasses were destroyed in the accident so he can't see very well and the flash did not help any. He gets his new ones next week. Hard to believe he is my youngest. They grow up so fast.

Here is a pic of Bliss, she is my middle daughter and is a wonderful daughter also. These are the last at home, my oldest daughter is living in Georgia since the summer and I have no recent pics of her. She is expecting her third child in Feb. as of yet we still do not know if we are having a boy or girl.

Ok now for crafty and bloggy stuff.......My friend Martine was my secret angel last year in the Stitchers Angel swap. She has sent me the cutest little gnome for my birthday which is Friday. Yes I did open it early but just a little early. Anyhow, I wanted to post a pic of this and say a big thank you to Martine for my lovely gift and for thinking of me. Martine is very talented and you should go on over to her blog which is here: http://martinejannaas.web-log.nl/  and check out her work. She is making basket quilts to just drool over. Lots of eye candy. Thank you again Martine for my lovely little gnome.

I have recieved part of my parcel from Cheryl over at "Willowberry Designs" from her drawing. I will wait to post pics until the balance of the package arrives so I can show it all at one time. Let me tell you though, the prize is full of yummy fabrics and great patterns can't wait to share with you. I do have some stitching to share, but will have to post pics later as Dewi has arrived with the baby. Will post again soon to update on the Flower Fairy RR and of course the Black/White RR. Until then happy stitching. Also, Gerry has given me the Kreative Blogger award and I will be doing that on my next post also. Thank you for the award Gerry.

Wendy


Gratitudes:

Good Afternoon Wendy... Well, if you haven't yet, you should be receiving your swap box from me any day now. I do hope it arrives in good condition and with nothing broke!
I figured I'd reveal myself to you now...My name is Gina, and I am your Secret Stitcher Angel from the 2009 swap. I am not real good at sewing much of anything besides baby blankets, so I do hope and pray that although a couple of the items I made for you have what I call, ummm, imperfections...I am hoping you will still like and enjoy what I've made and sent you. The two items I sewed are my FIRST time ever making anything of the sort, so as excited as I was to dive into a world of sewing new projects, I was almost too worried that they wouldn't be good enough for you, as you do such AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL work yourself! But I decided that since I poured my heart into making them, and because I made them specifically for you, with your tastes and color favorites in mind, they were going to be sent in your swap box no matter what. The "big" gift...you'll know it when you see it...is something I am hoping I put together correctly and good enough to last for a long time.
Anyways, without saying anymore until after you've received your gifts, do let me know when you've received the box, and if everything arrived safely w/o damage.
I'm so glad to see that your son is doing well after the car accident. You and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers continuously.
~Gina
