Spreading the Love……..

First I’d like to thank everyone for their comments, prayers, and support yesterday for my husband’s hand surgery. The surgery went well and and he is home resting. Your kind comments really made me feel better!

Today I received The Spreader of Love Award from my friend Riet at Quilt n' Stitching Lady.

The_Spreader_of_Love_Award from Riet at Quilt n Stitching Lady January 2009 

Riet lives in the Netherlands. I am fairly sure our paths have crossed before I started blogging when I was more involved in cross-stitching. She loves quilting , cross stitching, reading, shabby chic, old mirrors, and decorating. Take a few minutes and visit her blog when you have the time!

The Spreader of Love Award description is as follows:

  5. Susan...what a beautiful award! Congrats to you! And thanks for "Spreading the Love"...I will proudly display it on my blog! I'm not the greatest at picking blogs/blogger for awards...can never decide who to give them, too...but I'm very appreciative of you thinking of me and will be sure to acknowledge it with the award in my sidebar! :-) Love to you! Susan

  6. Congrats on the award! You deserve it. Glad to hear your DH is doing so well.

  7. Congrats on the award - that one is so pretty and you're such a great blogger buddy - well deserved to you!!

    Glad your hubby is doing better and hope he keeps doing better!!

    I was scrolling through your posts and couldn't believe your tree is blooming already - I am so jealous!! I keep looking around my yard waiting (not to patiently) to see something, anything looking like it is trying to get ready to come out and play so I can come play with you on Outdoor Wednesday. I don't want to use any of last year's pics - just this year's!! Probably sounds funny - but I want everything to be current?? We're not even that far apart - I'm in NC. Oh well, patience has never been one of my strong points! Maybe another couple of weeks!

    Have a good one ~

  8. Hi Susan, :)

    Well deserved my friend.
    Take Care, ~Melissa :)

  24. I did some quick skimming yesterday, trying to catch up and missed the note about your husband. Only commented on the pretty tree! I am so sorry! J had hand surgery a few years ago, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, on both hands, but not at the same time. He did quite well. Not sure if this is what your husband hand though.
    Hopes for a speedy recovery.
