Calendar Poodle SAL

Monday, June 7, 2021


 Hi friends! Yesterday was my birthday. We celebrated with family at my Mom's. I have fallen behind in sharing my cards and gifts from friends on the blog. These all arrived last week.

🎀 This perfectly pink birthday card came all the way from Germany from dear our friend Martina 

Thank you Martina for remembering my birthday❣️ I love this beautiful pink card and pink bird❣️ 💗

🥳 And look what I got from our friend Carol 

Thank you so very much dear Carol❣️ I truly LOVE this pattern❣️ I am so glad to own it now so I can stitch it for the cornershelf. 😁 And did you notice the wonderful PINK 🐩 card Carol made me? 🤩

📚 The Sanatorium is for you if you like murder mysteries. Great detective story under extreme circumstances and investigated by a detective on sick leave. Lots of twists and turns and misdirection. Truly had me guessing almost until the end. (And I did not want to put it down. Great treadmill material!🏃‍♀️) Guests are trapped in a new hotel in the Swiss Alps due to an avalanche then the murders start occurring. The epilogue was very intriguing, I assume there's more to come featuring the main character.

I am working on two things! I am creating a pillow out of the stitched piece I was gifted by Manuela AND I designed a patriotic poodle piece!! 🐩💖🤍💙 I REALLY  hope it turns out as cute as I envision it!

I had my cortisone shots. He gave me two. One at L1, one at L2. He said they can take up to 7 days to give relief. They are helping somewhat. I do not feel complete absence of pain(yet).

“All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:16

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Such an outpouring of love from so many of you, my dear sweet friends. I appreciate every single one of your birthday wishes filled with love for me. 💕💕💕

I hope and pray you have a wonderful week my friends!  Thank you for stopping by and saying hi!

Stitching and praying,

So glad that you had a good Birthday!

The best gift would be for those injections to work well, so let's keep our fingers crossed for that!
