Chapter 60, the Girls

Well have been back from California for a couple of day, but kind of tore my rotator cuff in my right shoulder, so things such as typing, unpacking and stitching are going kind of slow. I got to see my "girls" the wiener dogs. Miss Buttons and Miss Mona even posed with me. (okay so they laid there and let me hold them LOL) and Miss LillyBell even snuck in a picture. (She is a chihuahua and does not know she is not a wiener girl) I had a blast with my family, and with the "girls" but I was glad to get home to my Pommie. LOL he has spend almost every available moment in my lap. We also have two new additions to our family, Cleo and Violet, the guinea pigs. They are small (only 4 weeks old) so it is taking some adjusting, but I love their sweet little voices. Reesie is not to impressed and does not see any reason why I would want such creatures. LOL. I am off to take another pain pill. I will have to write more tomorrow. hugs to all.

Chapter 59, PIF

Eileen over at noisynanablogspot.com is doing a PIF. I love PIF's. Getting to make a special gift for someone is one of my favorite things. I am still working on my gift for Miss. Ruby. (have narrowed it down to two ideas) and as I know she is one of the few people who leaves me comments, I am sure she will aslo by my PIF for this one too, if I am chosen. I have noticed since joining stitchmap, and CQfornewbies, that I am seeing so many things I want to try and do and make. The list is almost endless now. Family and friends will be happy as it means more gifts for them. There is just something special about starting a project you know is a gift for someone. I try hard to think of that person as I work on their gift, putting my prayers and hopes into it. I tell my students all the time that everyone has a special talent or gift, and that the best use of that talent or gift is to share it with others. Every year I have made each of my students a special Christmas ornament. and even now, 14 years later, when I run into an old student they still have that ornament and can't wait to tell me about it. There is something comforting and special in knowing that someone took time out of their day to make something just for you. So to the first five comments (please leave an e-mail address) I will send you a home made item sometime in the next year. (Most likely around Christmas as I love to send gifts and cards LOL) Please PIF. It does not matter to me if you post it on your blog, or just see someone in need and take a little of your time to make them feel special. Pass the gift on.
