Finally Finished the Santa and Samantha's giveaway

I finally got the Santa finished. Took me long enough. But one more thing crossed off my list. I still have 3 Raggedy Anne's to go and then I am done hopefully for a little bit. This was my Father Christmas pattern. He really makes up fast once I start sewing. It is just taking the first stitch sometimes. I had him finished in 2 evenings.

Samantha is having a big giveaway on her blog
she is giving away a $20.00 shopping spree on her etsy shop. She has patterns, aprons, tarts and some of those pink hair raggedies . So stop by her blog and sign up for her giveaway.
Well tomorrow is the day I got for my Pet Scan, scared of course. Then Monday I go for the results. So scared they are going to find something else wrong. My stomach problems are all still there. Which doesn't help me calm my mind any. I guess when you have cancer, you always worry, if some other cancer will show up. So if I can get through this coming week and weekend, maybe I will have some peace. I need to make up a list of questions to ask her this time, I always forget to ask something when I am there. I guess just knowing that this can't be cured and only treated and that someday I am going to get worse, just scares me so much. You just never know how much time you have left on this earth. So much I want to do. My daughter is going with me, she said as long as she doesn't have to watch them stick me with a needle she will be fine. Just like her daddy, can't stand blood or needles. This is her last day at work, so glad, selfishly, I will have my daugher right down the street. I should be able to spend more time with her. So please say a big prayer for me to help me get through this coming week.

  2. I will be thinking of you. That is great that you and your daughter will be able to spend more time together. I'm sure she will love that. I do crafts with my mom, and during the shows is when I get to spend more time with her and I love just sitting and catching up with her. I'm sending gentle hugs. Take care and I will say an extra little prayer for you.

  4. I will definitely pray for you Sandy. Right now I ask the Lord to comfort your fears as you go thru this scan and I pray that the doctors will have a good report to give to you on Monday. He is well able to deliver you from this cancer that has taken hold of your body. In his precious name I pray this for you. Amen.
    Lots of hugs,

  5. I am praying for you, that God will comfort and be with you. That he will touch you and heal as only the Great Physician can.
