The Winner Is...

Hi friends! The capsule endoscopy went well. The camera pill is the size of a big vitamin. The nurse gave me water with an anti-gas mixture. It makes your mouth and throat slick. The camera pill slid right down. The doctor is next back at this office on Monday. He will review the hundreds of pictures taken then. The nurse will give me a call and let me know what he has discovered.
I have drawn the name of the winner for the Bent Creek 'Thankful Quaker' pattern. The winner is:  Angela! :)

Murphy got a haircut. He looks pretty dapper for a 13 year old miniature poodle, doesn't he?
Our weather continues to be very mild here. We have had only one hard frost so far! Unbelievable. My geraniums are still going! Here is a pretty pansy for you.
I have stitched up one of Jacob's Christmas ornaments. I just finished it last night though. I did not get a picture yet, so I will share that with you next time.

I have kitted up the December Joyful World. I had to make a lot of floss changes, several of the DMC seemed screwy to me. I made a big change for the fabric too. I hope I like it! I hope you do too.

Well tomorrow is a new day. I am hoping for a headache free day. I had several of them a few weeks ago. I am confident I can have them again.

Image result for if today we were just grateful
Have a wonderful weekend my friends! Thank you for stopping by.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Good morning! Me? I won? Thank you! What a nice surprise so early in the morning. LOL

I'm glad all went well at the doctor's. I hope he understands that all of us are waiting for an answer! LOL

We have had frost for the last two nights. Very weird...75 or 80 degrees during the day, 30 at night. Brrr...My grape irises are doing well, lots of new growth. I moved them closer to the house, not taking any chances with your babies. LOL

Have a wonderful day, Vickie. SMILE

Murphy always looks adorable/dapper/cute!

I hope the cooler weather has brought you some relief and this recent test finds a path to being headache free for a very long time!

Von said...

I've gotten behind on my blog reading, so just now read that you've had your innards examined! So glad you were able to get it done and pray the scan give you some answers.

Murphy is a good-looking older gentleman! Our first schnauzer was actually half mini poodle/half mini schnauzer and we couldn't have had a better dog for 16 years.

Can't wait to see what changes you've made to December!

Hugs!
