Thank You(s) & Pouch in Limbo

Well, it has been a rough week.  My aunt lost her battle with Chronic Lupus this morning.  She suffered from Lupus for many years, and it finally got into her lungs, and she was unable to recover.  :o(  Thank you to everyone for your kind thoughts and prayers!  I think I have the kindest blog friends/followers in all the world!  You are greatly appreciated.

My little pouch sits untouched.  I think I will try to curl up on the couch tonight and stitch on it a little and see what I can do.  It has been a long day and that sounds very relaxing at this point!  

I also need to throw out some public thank you's to some very generous blog friends!  I had some very good luck in the giveaway dept in the month of October.

Chris B. @ Weekend Wisdom sent me this cool mug rug, and fat quarter assortment. :o) Look at those tiny pieced rectangles!!  Thanks so much Chris!  My husband thanks you too, he loves using it.

Then, Snoodles, over at Lily Pad Quilting posted a giveaway of a jelly roll of the non-caloric sort.  Sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop.. Northcote Range.  And look what showed up in my mailbox.. Thank you, thank you!

Here is a better look @ the fabric line.. 

On the same day, look what arrived from Linda @ Little Bits and Pieces.  
 The Devil's Puzzle, (can't wait to read it!) along with two BROWN fat quarters.. um, have I mentioned that I love LOVE brown? :o)  What a sweet surprise to include them in the package! Thank you Linda!

This week, I also rec'd this in the mail.  I think after the last month, I will likely never win anything again.  I think I used up all my luck in one month!  Jennifer Gail from Hoodies and Flipflops sent me this!
And do you believe that in all those goodies there is also a $25 gift cert. to a quilt shop?!  Thanks so much Jennifer!  Please go and visit these ladies @ their blogs.  They are so kind.  These thank you(s) are way overdue!  

I also need to say thank you to Erica and Raewyn for nominating my blog for this:
I really appreciate it, and appreciate everyone who reads or follows along!  There are rules for receiving it though, and questions to answer, but I have had a hard time figuring out which blogs to pass it on to, since I love reading all of the blogs I follow.  So I will just say please, please read a few of the blogs on my blog list, and follow along with them. :o)

Gonna go and take a rest now, today has been a long day, but wanted to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers and let you know that I'll be back soon. Whether or not my little pouch makes the cut or not remains to be seen. ;o)


I'm sure that all the giveaways in the world cant make up for your loss but I hope they helped to make you feel a little better! I am so sorry!

Enjoy all of your wins and take care of yourself. It's a difficult time.

Oh Kelli, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Take comfort in your memories. I know all your wins won't make it better, but enjoy them later when you're able.

I am so sorry about your Aunt- your family will be in my prayers! Congratulations on your wins, though. A little gift in my mailbox always managed to brighten even the cloudiest of days.
