Tweet, Tweet friends this week

This past whole week I've not had a camera memory card so I have alot to show you in a little bit of time because in an hour I have to be ready and out to take BG to the hospital for some minor surgery. He will be fine even though he has been pacing the floor since 7am. ;)  Usually when he is hyper, I'm all calm, so I'm sure that will change when we get there in a few.

I have a few mail goodies to show you. One I just received last night from Sandy and it made me cry it was so sweet!   Sandy I did get it yesterday in the mail!!!  It was waiting on me when I got home from a long day of work. Sandy and I both share a love for furbabies and this book will be treasured forever.

I popped that new memory card out this morning......finally!!!

Sandy's gift came in the mail last night with a most beautiful card.

With the sweetest stickers on the card and package. Sandy you are the greatest!

With a book that has this in the front

Isn't this sooooo cool?

Love it!  Meditations for Dog Lovers (that's me)

I thought of Ren the whole time and his little sweet self across Rainbow Bridge waiting for me.

I will hold this in my heart forever. Thank you Sandy.

Last week, Ma Teakettle, Karyn, sent me this to me as a RAK and make sure you are sitting when you sent what else here. I almost passed out.

Yes, you wouldn't BELIEVE the pile of big linen cuts here! I can't thank you enough Ma!

this is the most beautiful elegant linen color!

And all this as I drool again looking through it~~~~~in a STACK

That is absolutely stunning when I opened that. Karyn you really are WAY too generous. 
Before this last weekend, I was thrifting in a store while shopping for some things to go in a remodeled room, and happened upon this.

I couldn't resist. It had no musty odor, there as no marks on it.   All wool. And stitchable.
4 yards of it. 19.00.

I bunched it for you to see the whole piece.
I did a major happy dance in that store. Body guard thought I was nuts as I was skipping to the register with my find.

I played a bit on it with one over one and one over two. It's very stitchy for samplers.
4 yards!

I will fold it back up.

My new craze to add to my already developing meditation morning and night is this. Yoga. Power Yoga.

I got this yesterday and have done morning and night sessions. This is definitely hard core yoga.
It tones every muscle of the body. This morning, I took it slower as my muscles were sore from last night of 25 minutes session.

So far though I know I will love it. I loved going dancing and the flexibility of it for my joints is what I need.
After passing the sore muscle phase, maybe my breathing will improve...LOL

Last night I was on the floor in front of the TV trying to do all this and Abbie was nipping and biting at my face and pulling out every toy in her basket and dropping it on my head as she thought I was playing with her.
This morning, she is tuckered out in one of her poses. Is this the dog pose?

Speaking of Abbie, this is what she did to my new chair pad. I have to save this if I can.

I need all hookers in blogland to look at this.......(I know, you know what I mean) really, I have never done punchneedle or hooking (thank God)......but would I get a punchneedle to fix it or what??????
Is is saveable?

This is the back of it.

Thank you again and I have to scoot soon for an afternoon at the hospital, so I will be back to anxiously read your  comments. They make my day!

Say a prayer for us if you can at 1pm today. We will need it.

Till later,



  1. What amazing gifts to recieve. How lucky are you? It is quite difficult to get decent linens here in the UK, mostly we have to mail order them, our needlework shops sell very little variety, so this stack would drive me crazy! Trouble is, when I do get hold of a lovely linen, I just 'save' it, not sure what for! Can't help at all with punch needle though, sorry. Irene xxx

  2. I'm so happy you got the little
    book and card, Jennifer. I hope
    it blesses you and makes you love
    doggies even more! Friday I will
    get to bring home my new furbaby,
    Toby!! I'll post pictures on the
    Praying for BG!

  3. So sorry about the chair pad !! I hope you can fix it because it is lovely

    Congrats on all of your treasures !!
    Have a great day :)

  4. Aw, I am sure Abby was just trying her hand at hooking! Love all the linen colors......hope BG will be ok....

  5. Wishing your Bodyguard good results and an easy recovery! I know he has a very good nurse...
    Although I don't hook or punch, I am almost sure your chair pad can be saved. The experts out there will come to your rescue.
    I hear we have more snow on the way, stay warm!

  6. Congratulations Jennifer, I truly believe that Ma has absolutely NO idea how deeply she touches our hearts. Nice bag of goodies and that 4 yds of stitchy fabric,,,well what a find that was...
    Godspeed to BG, I really do not think any surgery is minor to the male gender, but for sure he will be in good hands.
    Be always in stitches.

  7. Thoughts and prayers to BG!!

    What wonderful things that were snet to you! Those linens are yummy!!

    Uh-oh! Is Abbie in the dog house?? Or did she flash you those big eyes!! I hope someone out there can helpyou out. I've never done that technique before.

  8. Isn't yoga great!!! I love it too. Aren't you a lucky girl with the presents. You have awesome friends.

  9. Oh my word! All those goodies and fabric....LOVELY!

  10. wow! wonderful wonderful gifts in the mail... makes for a lovely moment! I too would fall off my chair... I'm drooling on the linen stash...
