SSCS Package & Bee Sew Whimsical Swap

angel ornament and Christmas card

My Christmas card and ornament package from the Bee Sew Whimsical Honeypot Christmas swap has arrived. Isn't this a cute angel? It has wonderful blanket stitching all around. Thank you very much, Sharon (no blog).

My card and ornament were mailed without me taking a photo. I hope the recipient will share one when she gets it.

This morning a package with a SSCS Alert came all the way from Australia. I haven't opened it and will try to be good.

Kari called this morning to tell us that our 11 year old grandson, Ian, fell at school yesterday and broke three bones in his face (tripod fracture). He can't sing in choir, play sports, play his trombone, or even blow his nose. He needs to see a pediatric facial trauma specialist next week and the eye doctor. He also has one good black eye. Being a trooper, he commented to his mom, "I can still use the computer!"

Now that is a "glass half full" kinda guy!! I do hope he recovers fully soon....and it shouldn't impair opening of gifts but may present a problem with Christmas lunch!

So sorry to read about your grandson! Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery!

Jeanne.... those pressies are gorgeous! I'm sure that the gorgeous angel will have a special spot on the tree.

It was certainly my pleasure in hosting this Honeypot Swap. All the Honeypot swappers certainly filled the world in festive inspiration & spirit!

It's great to have so many wonderful & caring friends in my life that share the same passions for stitching & creativity.

I wish you & your family a wonderful Christmas & may your New Year be filled with creative stitching & inspirational thoughts!

take care

ps: wishing that child a speedy recovery. Having come off a broken wrist & head stitches... I feel for him. Yes, lucky the computer was still able to be used... hehe...

hugs

Poor Ian - hope he recovers really soon.

I hope all goes well with Ian's recovery! (What an amazing kid!)

So glad you have received your SSCS, cause I'm the one who sent it! I can say this without giving anything away, because there are no photos at all of it on my blog. (not even sneak peeks!)

Now that is looking at the bright side *s*

best wishes to Ian!

Dionne said...

Oh, your poor grandson! I am so sorry to hear it, I hope he has a speedy recovery. That, at least is a good thing... children do heal very quickly. But never quick enough for mom and grandmom!
PS - your swap is great!

So sorry to hear about your grandson. My, that must have been a hard fall. Hope he isn't in too much pain.

Do you suppose he will be surfing the quilting blogs?!

The poor kid! Here's hoping he heals up a bit before the holidays.

What a cute card and ornament. I've sent my Bee Sew swap out and haven't received mine. I did receive my SSCS and it's sitting in my studio waiting for Christmas morning.
