New CD’s My Hubby Bought Me




I have to tell you, I lost everything on my computer a week or so ago and all I did for a while was whine about it. lol I think Bert felt a little sorry for me because he knew I wanted these CD’s and he ordered them for me. I love them!!! They’re great addition to the one’s I have. Now I can get crazy making silkies for my Etsy! lol

What A Wonderful Surprise!!


Karrin Hurd that I’m on a few groups together with, also happens to live about 3 blocks from me. Karrin and I try to go to lunch once in a while and get together to do some stitching. Yesterday we went to lunch and she surprised me with this beautiful package of pink goodies. The earrings that came in it to use on CQ are just gorgeous! There’s two different ribbons with pink and green, the beautiful embroidered hanky with the all that lovely variegated trim! Also some green shell buttons and some pink ones. They’re going to be fun to work with to make a flower on my next CQ. Thank you Karrin, I absolutely love them all!:)

Wonderful Gifts From Gail!!



A few days ago I received a surprise package in the mail from Gail Odegaard, and what a surprise it was! She gifted me her tag that she made in one of our other groups and it’s gorgeous!!! The picture does not do the work on the tag justice. It now has a special place on the picture frame of my mothers poem “Quilts and Friends”. Along with the Tag she sent me a Dream Pillow filled with lavender! I’ve been going to make one for quite a while but just hadn’t gone out to biu the lavender so you know how welcome the Dream Pillow is:) It’s supposed to help you have restful sleep and pleasant dreams. So far so good, it’s working:) Gail thank you soooooooo very very much. You’re such a dear friend.

A Beautiful Floral Arrangement Arrived Today


My doorbell rang today, so my two dogs and I had a race to see who would get there first. Me on my crutches and them dodging them as they ran by me! lol When I opened the door what surprise to have a man standing there with a beautiful bouquet saying delivery for Candi! I must have been stunned, because he said it twice. lol My dear friend Lindy Warner in Indiana sent them as get back on your feet wish:) Linda was my Secret Sis last year and has since become a very very dear friend. I wanted to share them as they have brought such joy into my house. Thank you Lindy, you’re such a loviing person and thank you for being there.:)
