Great Mail, Awards, Stitching news and more!

I have been blown away the last couple weeks as I have received a couple awards. One of them comes from Wendy and is the "One Lovely Blog Award". Since I have already received this and passed it on once, I will not do that again. I also received the Kreative blogger award again from Meari! The sad thing is that she passed this on to me back in June and I forgot to post about. I added her name to the award on my side bar, but just forgot to post! So thank you so much Wendy and Meari!!!

I have also received a couple other awards. I received This sweet friendship award from
Janet C. Thank you Janet for considering me for this award! I am flattered!!!I am suppose to pass this on to 8 of my friends and I have made so very many but since it is only suppose to be 8, here they are:

Ok, I tried to pass this on to just 8 people, but I have to be honest. I had a list done and posted and then thought of a couple other people, so I went back and was looking over my list and thought of even more people. SO, here is the deal . . . If you read my blog and I read yours, you are a friend and I give this award to you! If you have stumbled upon this post by me leaving you a comment and directing you here, this award is for you!

I also received this great award from Nur Azimah. She does beautiful stitching and has the cutest little boy. If you have not stopped by her blog, please do. She is learning English more and more and getting better at communicating all the time. She always tries to use her best English when posting!!Here are the rules of the above award:

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

I have really had a hard time deciding who to pass this award on to. There are so many of you out there that give me inspiration in many ways. Since this is for newly discovered blogs, that made it a bit easier because many of you, I have been following since I started this blog and before. So, this award is passed on to:

Edgar: I started following Edgar in the last couple months and he just does such gorgeous work! He is so talented!!
Janet C.: I just really met Janet when she signed up for the ATC birthday exchange and she is just such a sweety and I love that she is open about her beliefs!!
DaisyGirl: Not sure when I started following DaisyGirl but I know it has not been long. She is another who is open about her beliefs and does great stitching!

Now there are others that I have recently started following but not for very long.

It is almost time for the TUSAL update. Since I know that I will probably not post until have the new moon, I will go ahead and post a pic of my update now. I don't figure that it matters that much as I have not posted an update on the TUSAL for a couple months!

I finally finished my first ornie for the Stitching for a Cure tree! I actually almost had a second one done, I was doing it on perforated paper and was almost complete but I think that a dog might have eaten it! LOL I can not find it anywhere! I have looked all over the place too! Have no idea where it went. So, I am gonna get this one off in the mail tomorrow and try and get another one done on time! Now keep in mind that I have almost NO finishing skills at all! So this ornie is as about as good as it gets!! LOL

Now for the wonderful mail that I received! I got a fantastic package from Barbara! This was from a surprise giveaway that she done a while back. She actually chose several winners and then surprised us with whatever she felt like! Well let me tell you, she surprised me greatly! I love everything!!!! Just look at what I got!!! Thank you so very much Barbara! The nose in the pic is of our Chocolate Lab, Romo (yes we are Cowboy fans) He tries to get right up at the camera when I have it out! He is such a ham!

I did get my dads birthday card done and mailed to him, but just like the three ATC's I sent off in the last week or so . . . I forgot to get a pic. I asked him to snap a pic and send it when he has time. So maybe next update! Lisa is now helping me by doing some of my model stitching! She does such gorgeous work too! She just finished the first one for me and it turned out marvelous! I love it!!!! I have decided that I will release at least one new design a month!! Instead of doing a big release a couple times a year, I think that at least one a month will be great! With Lisa and I both stitching, I might even be able to make sure there is two a month, but I do not want to commit to that yet! LOL

Well if you are still here now that I am done rambling, I do thank you! Until my next update, happy stitching!!!!

Cindy Mae

Congrats on the awards! Ooops to me for giving you the same one TWICE, lol. You deserve it, though. Congrats, too, on your SFAC ornie. It turned out really nice.

Thank you for the award! I love reading your blog. No wonder I was having issues with the comments!

Patti said...

Hi CindyMae, Thank you so much for allerting me to the fact that you had given me an award. I have to admit, though, that I do not usually take awards that are given to everyone that reads a blog but in this instance thank you once again and I shall put it on my blog and send it out to 8 of my friends. Thank you so much again. With Love Patti xxx

You certainly deserve your awards, CindyMae! And I shall be pleased to take one of them from very sweet to share with all your friends!
I have never heard of an ornie, but it's beautiful, and for such a wonderful cause. :-)
