Goodies in the Mail

 I got a call from the mail lady yesterday afternoon. I had a package. I was somewhat confused as I hadn't ordered anything that should be here yet.

 I headed down figuring it was a mistake but lo and behold it was for me! From the amazing Rene! I'd won a giveaway on her blog. Now you have to understand asides from winning a free ticket or two in the lotto I've not won ANYTHING since I was 10, and that was the only thing I'd ever won. I have the worst luck you have ever seen. If not for bad, I'd have no luck. Which I often have thought would be better.
 So thank you Rene for both the awesome gifts and for giving me a bit of good luck.
My goodies? These amazing beauties.

I'm in love with the circles. I don't know if I'll make yo-yos or applique them but no matter what they are beautiful and cheery. The charm packs will make a lovely Schnibble. And the note cards are so pretty.
I was honestly blown away. So again, thank you Rene!!

Little Bit is off for her weekly sleepover with Grandma. Every Friday that they're both in town, Little Bit has to go to bio dad occassionally and grandma for work, they have a sleep over. It is the highlight of her week, both the hers lol. Little Bit was home again today, her chest being quite rattly and coughing etc that I figure school wasn't a good idea but she's almost always well enough for grandma lol.
Maybe she'll take her medicine better for her then me. With me it's a full out fight, and she is more stubborn then I am, if it can be believed.

 I'm hoping to get one of the doll quilt tops finished, the baby quilt at least basted if not quilted, and DH wants more of the placemat I made a few weeks ago. It is currently handing on the wall as a Christmas decoration.
I also need to get to the post office and mail out the goodies from my giveaway. I'm so sorry for the delay but that's kids for you.

Oh and if anyone out there has any experience with lidocaine infusions for chronic pain I'd appreciate any info on how you found it, and if it worked for you. I'm scheduled to start them in January and am a bit uncertain.

Congratulations on your win! I am not very familiar with lidocaine infusions, but from what I understand it is a diagnostic procedure to determine if lidocaine is helpful in treating your pain. It doesn't work for everyone. I think it is a channel blocker - sodium, I think. But that's about all I know about it. Are you in chronic pain?

Cara, so glad you like the contents of your package. Hope your daughter is feeling better soon. Can't help with the lidocaine question. Good luck with finding your answer and hope it goes as you expect.
