UPDATE ON RODNEY

JUST HEARD ABOUT 45 MINUTES AGO THAT RODNEY IS IN ICU AND DOING ALRIGHT. HIS WIFE NINA GOT TO THE WAITING ROOM AT 8:30 AM AND RODNEY GOT TO ICU JUST A FEW MINUTES TILL 5:00 PM. NINA SAID IT'S BEEN A LONG DAY. THEY LET HER SEE HIM JUST A FEW MINUTES BUT VISITING TIME IS AT 5:00 SO WHEN THEY GET HIM SETTLED IN THEY WILL LET EVERYONE IN FOR THEIR VISIT.
SHE SAID HE LOOKED ALRIGHT AND WAS TRYING TO MOVE A LITTLE. THEY FIXED THE VALVE, THAT OTHER THING I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND AND FIXED A CLOGGED ARTERY THEY DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT.
THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT SENT UP PRAYERS.
I KNOW HOW HARD THIS DAY HAS BEEN ON EVERYONE SO WE'LL WAIT ABOUT GOING TO SEE THEM.

PRAYERS NEEDED

OUR FRIEND RODNEY NEEDS YOUR PRAYERS. HE'LL BE HAVING OPEN HEART SURGERY IN THE MORNING. FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND HE'S HAVING A VALVE REPLACEMENT AND SOMETHING ELSE I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND ENOUGH TO REPEAT.
RODNEY IS A VERY SPECIAL PERSON WITH A VERY GIVING AND LOVING HEART. HE CARES SO MUCH FOR PEOPLE, HE'S ALWAYS HELPING SOMEONE. I PRAY FOR GOD TO GUIDE THE DOCTORS HANDS AND GIVE EVERYONE THE KNOWLEDGE TO GET HIM THROUGH THIS AND TO GIVE NINA HIS WIFE AND HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS THE COMFORT AND STRENGTH THEY NEED TO GET THROUGH THE DAYS AHEAD.

I'D ALSO LIKE TO ASK FOR PRAYERS FOR FRIENDS WHOSE HOUSE CAUGHT ON FIRE THE 23RD OF THIS MONTH. IT BURNED THROUGH THE ROOF SO I KNOW IT'S PRETTY BAD.
I ALWAYS HEAD FOR MY COMPUTER WHEN SOMEONE NEEDS PRAYERS. I FIND COMFORT IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT YOUR PRAYING WITH ME. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. I'LL KEEP YOU POSTED ON HOW RODNEY'S DOING.

LAPGHAN


THIS LAPGHAN WAS MADE USING LEFT OVER AND DONATED YARN. IT'S HEADED FOR A LOCAL NURSING HOME.
DO YOU THINK ANYONE AT THE NURSING HOME WOULD LIKE A SCARF? I HAVE SOME HOMESPUN YARN THAT WOULD BE GREAT FOR THEM.
I HOPE EVERYONE HAD A GREAT CHRISTMAS.

2 LITTLE BURIAL POUCHES,



4 SMALL BLANKETS AND 1 MEDIUM BLANKET. THESE ITEMS WILL GO TO EGF AS ALWAYS. THE BLANKETS ARE MADE OUT OF SOME OF THE MATERIAL DONATED BY AUNT JANELLES SISTER HANNAH.

MORE YARN


I DON'T KNOW THE NAME OF THE LADY THAT DONATED THIS YARN, SHE GAVE IT TO RODNEY AND NINA FRIENDS OF OURS. THE BOTTOM ROW IS BABY YARN AND THE REST WILL BE USED TO MAKE THINGS FOR THE NURSING HOME.
I'M WORKING ON A LAPGHAN NOW, I HOPE TO GET IT READY BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR.

DONATION FOR THE NURSING HOME


THE PICTURE LOOKS BAD BUT THIS IS A LAPGHAN FOR THE NURSING HOME. THAT MAKES 3 LAPGHANS AND 3 AFGHANS.


CANDY CANE HOLDERS AND WREATHS THAT I MADE.

7 SNOWMEN



AUNT JANELLE AND I MADE THESE THINGS DURING OUR CRAFTING PARTY. THE MATERIALS WERE DONATED BY VICKI MY SISTER-IN-LAW THAT HAS COPD.



THESE WERE SOME WREATHS SHE GOT SOMEWHERE.
ALL THESE THINGS ARE GOING TO RODNEY AND HIS WIFE NINA TO GIVE OUT AT THE NURSING HOME WHERE NINA'S GRANDMOTHER LIVES. THEY GO EVERY NIGHT AND GET HER BACK IN BED. THEY HELP ME OUT BY DONATING MONEY TO MY CHARITY WORK AND I THOUGHT THEY WOULD LIKE TO PLAY SANTA.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MAKES


LAST YEARS TREE,


THIS YEARS TREE. I JUST DIDN'T HAVE IT IN ME THIS YEAR TO DRAG OUT THE BIG TREE. SO I TOOK THE GARBAGE BAG OFF THE LITTLE TREE THAT WAS STILL DECORATED FROM LAST YEAR AND MY TREE IS READY. I MISS ALL MY HANDMADE ORNAMENTS BUT I DON'T MISS THE 3 OR 4 DAYS I SPEND STRESSING OVER THE BIG TREE. I SPEND 1 DAY JUST GETTING THE LIMBS JUST SO. NOT THIS YEAR, I'M ALL ABOUT LESS STRESS MORE FUN. MY TREE IS TINY BUT I FEEL GREAT.

MY SPECIAL DAY


WHEN I GOT UP YESTERDAY I HAD NO IDEA HOW SPECIAL MY DAY WAS GOING TO BE. TWYLA FROM TWO CRAZY CRAFTERS SENT ME THESE HOUSESHOES. THANK YOU SO MUCH TWYLA THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL. I JUST LOVE THEM. I'VE SEEN THEM ON HER BLOG AND WISHED FOR A PAIR KNOWING I WOULDN'T GET THEM BECAUSE I CAN'T KNIT. I DIDN'T KNOW AT THAT TIME THAT SHE SELLS THEN IN HER SHOP. I ENJOY READING TWYLA AND LINDSEY'S MOTHER DAUGHTER BLOG SO MUCH. PLEASE GO
VISIT THEIR BLOG AND CHECK OUT THEIR SHOP.


I WENT TO MY NEIGHBORS HOUSE TO DO HER DOGS NAILS YESTERDAY AND SHE HAD MADE THIS FLOWER POT FOR ME. SHE IS EITHER 78 OR 79 YEARS OLD. SHE HAD MADE HERSELF TWO OF THEM AT THE SENIOR CENTER SHE GOES TO. I HAD TOLD HER HOW PRETTY I THOUGHT THEY WERE. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN TELL BUT IT IS A 2 PIECE SET. PLANT IN ONE AND WATER IN THE BOTTOM. I JUST LOVE IT.


CAN YOU BELIEVE SHE CAN KNIT AND GAVE ME A PAIR OF HOUSESHOES ALSO. WHEN I GOT UP I DIDN'T HAVE A PAIR OF KNIT HOUSESHOES AND NOW I HAVE TWO PAIR. I SO LOVE BOTH PAIR.
I TOLD HER I'D BE BACK WITH MY NEEDLES AND YARN. I KNEW SHE COULD CROCHET, I JUST DIDN'T THINK SHE DID ANYMORE.
SORRY THE PICTURES DON'T SHOW JUST HOW PRETTY EVERYTHING IS.

DONATION READY


21 PREEMIE HATS
4 BURIAL SETS
125 PAIR OF BRACELETS (MADE BY AUNT JANELLE)
WE LIKE TO SEND TWO SO THE MOTHER HAS A MEMORY OF HER BABY.

LITTLE SNOWMEN


EVERY YEAR I TRY TO MAKE SOMETHING NEW FOR CHRISTMAS. I MADE THE SNOWMAN ON THE LEFT FIRST. DON'T YOU HATE IT WHEN YOU MAKE UP A PATTERN AND DON'T WRITE IT DOWN. I MADE THE OTHER ONE BY MEMORY. AS YOU CAN SEE MY MEMORY IS NOT ALL THAT GOOD. FOUR SNOWMEN LATER AND I THINK I MAY HAVE IT. I USED THE CARDBOARD TOILET PAPER THINGIES ON THE INSIDE. I HAVE FAMILY AND FRIENDS SAVING THEM, I WANT TO MAKE SOME TO GIVE OUT AT THE NURSING HOME. AUNT JANELLE AND I ARE MAKING THINGS OUT OF DONATED MATERIALS, WILL POST PICTURES LATER.
I DIDN'T TAKE PICTURES (FORGOT) OF 6 AFGHANS AND LAPGHANS I GAVE TO RODNEY TO TAKE TO THE NURSING HOME. RODNEY AND NINA DONATE MONEY TO MY CHARITY WORK. NINA'S GRANDMOTHER IS IN THE NURSING HOME AND THEY VISIT HER ALMOST EVERYDAY. I THOUGHT THEY WOULD KNOW MORE ABOUT WHO NEEDED THEM THAN I WOULD.
