Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

More XI and a Winner



Good morning my friends! Welcome new friends. Are we all getting excited about tomorrow? Nom, nom, nom!! I will be making the jello and the sweet potatoes. I adore sweet potatoes. We eat them at other times of the year also. They are way too good to eat only at Thanksgiving and Christmas. =) We will have to go to church tonight. We have never attended a Thanksgiving service the night before. It is necessary this year since Brian is working third shift and does not have off. Oh well, we are still thanking our God. ♥

My good friend Annette all the way out in California received the little pincushion I made her. AND she says she loves it. I am so glad.
She is a fellow lover of pink!♥
These spiderweb roses are fun to make I must say. Nope. Not sick of making pincushions as presents at all! I love it. It is so much fun. =)
Remember this? Yes, I completed a second one. One to go. They finally found the missing book, 365 Alphabets by Kooler Design Studio. Of course they did! I waited since the beginning of September for them to locate that book. So Brian ordered me a very well priced one off the internet. It should be here any day now. Ironic right? Oh well. I like the book very much and will use it repeatedly. I just prefer the library, to buying my own books.

The winner. The winner. The winner of the Sampler & Antique Needlework is...... Cucki!! Hooray! I have emailed her and she sent me that address back lickety split! I will be off to the post office later today. =)

Mabel is going the longest she ever has for being unafflicted with a flare up in her back since this began for her months ago. We are so happy.♥ I too am still experiencing less pain than earlier in the year. I am thankful to God for that. We have much to be thankful to God for at this house. You too?

Have a wonderful holiday my American friends. And EVERYONE have a wonderful day in the Lord.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie
