Give-Away Wrap-Up

Lots of hyphens up there! 

There are two $25 gift certificates from the Fat Quarter Shop that are burning a hole in my pocket!  (I need to look up the origin of that expression!) 

Sorry this has taken so long, but LA Quilter has gotten O-L-D, and the various aches and pains make her feel about double her age.

The two winners were chosen at random.  They are:

Toni Ann, TPott, who is not a blogger but has been a faithful commenter for very long time.


Carly, Citric Sugar, who is such an inspiration because she's organizing her stash!  Yeah!  I need that inspiration!

If you two ladies will email me with your email address, I'll get your gift certs off to you.  It may be tomorrow because I have a couple of things to do today.

First, there's the MRI at noon today.  I was able to see the neurosurgeon yesterday.  From my symptoms and a less than stellar CT scan from the hospital, he is fairly certain I have one, possibly two ruptured discs in my neck.  No trauma involved.  I have degenerative discs; in other words, I've gotten O-L-D. 

While Penny is not 100%, she's feeling much much better.  Thank you to everyone who sent words of comfort to me about her condition.  Penny has my heart -- is my heart!  I love that little punk so much.

I'm wanting to sew this weekend, but I don't think that will be possible.  That Brrrrr Park stuff is covering my sewing and cutting tables.  Speaking of sewing table, I need to call Upland Sew & Vac to check status on my two new machines.  Wouldn't that be a bummer for them to come in while I'm not able to play with them?

I'll be back over the weekend to update the condition of the patients.  In the meantime, take a few stitches for me, will you?

Sounds like some hot tea (or something stronger) and a couple of good movies are in order. I hope you feel up to sewing again soon!

Oh darn, I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. We've had our bout of problems with my husband, shoulder surgery, blood clots and much more....I know how you feel and it sucks getting old. Hang in there, do what the doctor says, take care of yourself and penny....sewing will be there when you feel better. Good luck for a speedy recovery.

Dee said...

Congratulations to Toni and Carly! As for you, I hope the news ends up better than you're expecting. I don't know what the prognosis/recovery is for such a disc injury, but I pray it doesn't keep you down for long. It sounds like you and Penny could use some good snuggle time together. That's what I like to do with my furbabies when I'm under the weather. I hope for a speedy recovery for the both of you!

Hope you and Penny feel better quickly. Congrats to the winners!

Carol said...

Oh darn Vicky! This getting old thing is something else...not for the faint of heart, that's for sure. You and Penny take good care of each other.

Yeah, you and Penny are certainly having a rough patch! Hugs and snuggles all around. Congratulations to the winners, wonder what they will pick?

Darling Jill Quilts said...

Congrats to the winners!! I'm just checking in to see how you are feeling now. And to see how Penny is. Thinking about you and sending pain-free thoughts!

Deb said...

How are you doing? Hope you're feeling better, or will be soon!

CitricSugar said...

Hope your MRI went well - I'm an absolute bear if I get so much as a crick in my neck! I can't imagine how uncomfortable you must be. :-(

Glad to hear Penny's doing a little better! i hope you both stay on the mend.

And thank you again for the lovely gift certificate!

More surgery - sigh!!! I hope this one does the trick and you'll feel much, much better soon.

Take care, dear friend.
