Time to Say 'Thank you!'

I'm am so thankful today, for a couple of reasons.

I'm SO GLAD TO BE CAST FREE!!! YAAAAY I got my wrist cast cut off on Tuesday and it appears to have healed well, Praise the Lord! I want to thank each and everyone one of you who prayed for my wrist to heal and it has! There is obviously some stiffness and tenderness in it but I'm doing some physio exercises and am sure it will strengthen in due time. Oh the joy of being able to pick up needle and thread again! More of that soon!

But I also want to say a special THANK YOU to a new blog friend, Goedele from Belgium.
We seem to have lots in common, not least that we share a love for all things American!!!

Last week I found out that I was the lucky winner of Goedele's Giveaway and thanks to her, the goodies arrived today! Inside there was a pretty note card and a vintage sticker from Ohio - thanks for that, Goedele - you know I'm looking forward to visiting there in June!

Goedele was so sweet and added something extra - isn't this little vintage clock adorable? Love it!
Also included was this old tin - this picture doesn't do it justice it's aged wonderfully, and I thought it would sit well in this cupboard~

Thank you so much Goedele - you've been so generous! Make sure to visit Goedele's lovely blog, The Gingerbread Gem by clicking here!

So I'm VERY thankful today! So glad you came by to share in my thankfulness!

  4. Oh what a nice giveaway. I am glad your wrist is limber enough for you to pick up a needle and thread. I think of you every time I pick mine up. It would be so terrible to not be able to sew. I can't wait to see what great things you come up with soon. :)

  5. So glad to hear of your good news Christine! Always wonderful to get to stitch again. Nice goodies from Goedele!

    What part of Ohio are you going to be visiting?(I'm guessing Amish country)?? I live really close to southern Ohio~right across the river actually. I'd love it if we could meet up someday!
