For all the prayers

EDIT to this post - to make sure you understand my gibberish.  ALL comments on this post will be included in the drawing.  I guess it wasn’t clear enough, but anyone can enter. I received many emails and comments offering prayers and wanted to thank them but not exclude everyone else.  So they are getting a double entry, but ALL readers that comment are included.  Just leave your entry on this post, with or without prayers.  No exclusions. 

Original post..
Good morning.  It's been cold and rainy, my furnace is on, and I am not a happy camper.  But there are other things to be grateful for, and one of them is my group of stitching buds.  I have gone through my comments and noted everyone that offered prayers and wish I knew who anonymous was.  Why?  Because every one of you is already included twice in a giveaway.  We won't have enough information to gauge Carole's condition until Thursday, but we greatly appreciate all the caring concern and prayers that you have given and I want to offer something in relation to that. 
 
 
 
What would be more appropriate than a heart?  I added a little to my heart freebie, stuffed it with sawdust,
added a pretty fabric back, and you can be included by leaving a comment on this post.  Even though I have you praying stitchers already, enter again if you would like a third chance. 
 



It's not a perfect finishing job, but I've been a little distracted lately so it is what it is. 
If you happen to notice that I am always wearing the same bracelets, let me explain.  I am lazy.  I don't want to be bothered taking jewelry on and off and I feel naked without bracelets.  Gold is too expensive and soft, silver tarnishes quickly on me, so I browsed Kohl's and JCP online and purchased men's stainless steel.  I chose styles that had links and could be shortened which was a plus because women's are usually too tight.  Then I can add costume pieces to them but these never have to come off.   
OK getting off track.  Random will draw a winner Friday night at 8pm EST.
Make sure to leave your initials if no-reply or anonymous.
 
Thank you all again so much for your support and kindness.

Aww Marly. Thank you! I am entering again I guess! ;) AND still praying. ♥ I love that heart you made by the way. :)

Hello Marly,

I have been following your blog for just a short time. Your humor caught my attention and I quickly became a fan. I have prayed for you, your sister and all the pets. I am sorry she has struggled with all the complications of a-fib. All good wishes for her next follow up.

Hi Marly,
It's so devastating when a family member is ill. I've been there and know the toll it takes. I will be praying for you, your sister and family.
God bless,
Jenny

I have embarked on a journey with a friend 's heart and your posts both frighten me and give me hope . The unknown is always with us yet we find comfort in prayers from strangers. Kindness is everywhere if we look for it.

Love the heart - as you know! Hoping they figure out a solution you guys can work with! Health is such a balance sometimes.

Vera said...

Oh Marly, what a sweet, sweet give-away. I love your heart (well, your heart inside you and the one you made - lol). You do bring so much laughter to people which is a wonderful gift. Will continue to keep your sister and you in my thoughts and prayers. Hoping all goes well.

Kristen said...

Hi Marly, I can't speak for everyone but I have to say that this little giveaway is totally unnecessary, but very sweet indeed. I'm pulling for you and your sister.

The heart is adorable.

JR Bush said...

I don't think I entered last time because I can't
see to do that kind of close work but I love
the heart! Also, I pray that your sister will get
better and that will make you better. Also,my
heart broke for your sister when I read about
her kitty babies. Life is not fair!

Anne said...

Beautiful heart Marly! Truly hope for the best and am still praying too!

Lynda Ruth Bowers said...

I hope you will get good news on Thursday and that everyone can heal and move forward! It's so tough to be sick and also to watch those who are sick. You are a great sister--I've said that already, but you continually are! You all are a blessed family!
Praying for happier days ahead!

Jacqueline said...

Such a sweet and generous giveaway. I'm sorry that your sister is having these issues. Keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers.

P.S. My furnace is on too -- and I don't like it one bit!

LindataxPA said...

What a darling little heart, that perfectly expresses your heartfelt thanks. Love it.

Sandra said...

HI Marly, I am so sorry but I missed all of your posts about your sister last week because I was on vacation. Back home now and on the computer. I don't do the blog on my cell phone. Haven't mastered all of that.
Anyway I know all of this is taking a toll on everyone. I am hoping that each new day and dr visit is going to have a good outcome for your sister. Your giveaway is totally unnecessary. I feel that I should be giving you something to cheer you. Thinking of you~Sandra

gracie said...

Glad you take comfort from our caring about you and sis....you are generous....

Vicki Jo said...

Sending prayers and thoughts for Thursday that all goes well. You have had a tough go lately, hope things start looking up for the better very soon. Love the heart by the way.

Hi Marly.
Usually ' No news is good news" or so I like to believe. I was worried since no posting in the last few days, but I should have guessed you were up to something sweet and generous. The heart is lovely as is your kindness. We keep our friends who need healing in our prayers daily...hoping all is well and stays that way.

Warm regards with Peace and Blessings for all,
Barb

cucki said...

Sending lots of prayers my dear..
The heart is so pretty x

Carol said...

I do hope your sister gets some definitive answers soon, Marly--what an exhausting and stressful summer for her (and you!)... I'm glad our thoughts and prayers have helped at least a little. I'll be thinking about Carole on Thursday and hoping for the best!

Penny said...

So nice of you to do a give-away, Marly....so thoughtful at such a crazy time! The stitched heart is lovely!! I hope that Thursday brings you good news and that Carole starts to feel better soon.

Margaret said...

How you can even think of doing another giveaway while you are under such stress I just don't know. You are so sweet. Know that you and your sister are still in my thoughts and prayers. Hang in there!

P.J. said...

You are too sweet! Busy hands.... As we continue to keep your sister and family in our thoughts and prayers; hoping that the right fix and balance is soon found to bring her comfort. Lovely heart. <3

Mouse said...

Just bobbing in to say I have been keeping up with all that is going on around your pad and keeping you all in my thoughts ... but not always commenting I am afraid ....
busy hands keep you occupied and I love how you have done your wee heart and thought of every one else too to give it away ((HUGS))) love mouse xxxxx

Wanda said...

Oh Marly, I am so sorry for what your sister and you have been going through. I will continue with my prayers and best wishes for you, your sister and family. I don't comment enough to be considered in the draw but your ongoing generosity with your free charts and giveaways is remarkable. Be well.

Pamela said...

Praying for your sister!!! So happy she has a caring sister like you.
And praying for you as well!!! You have certainly had a stressful summer. Praying for restful, stitchy days ahead.

Jean Bee said...

Okay, other than praying for your sister - I am wondering about two things....did you stamp that red fabric on the back of the heart to get the details? I love it and would get some if it's something that is for sale (unless you "created" it!)
And thank you for the heads up on the bracelets! At some point in my life someone must have blown some air in my wrists as they are no longer small/dainty! I do love bracelets and never ever thought to look at men's so they would fit!

Vonna, The Twisted Stitcher said...

Having gone through a little health crisis of my own here lately I know just how much those prayers and well wishes mean. Your sister is on my prayer list and I am so hopeful that she will have good news soon. May God bless her!

Jonette said...

Prayers continue for your sister. Would love to win this beautiful heart!

CalamityJr said...

Though I haven't commented often, I wanted to this time not for the giveaway but so you know there's another person adding to those prayers. Thank you for the updates. Don't forget to take care of yourself, too.

It is such a pretty heart and of course, both you and your sister are in my prayers!

C. M. Designs said...

I'm still praying for Carole and you.
Hoping the sun will be shining for you today to warm your heart and soul.
Thinking about "Budman", Squeak, Missy and the rest of your "wild kingdom" and how blessed they are to have you to care for them.

We should be giving you the heart! Very appreciative of your generosity - thank you!!!

CathieJ said...

Hi Marly,
The heart you made is beautiful. Prayers are being sent for you and your sister. It is so difficult when a treatment balance is elusive. Take care, Cathie

Brenda said...

Oh I love your finishing! To me, it looks PERFECT!!! And the stitching is just as beautiful.

I really do hope they find out what is wrong with your sister and pray that they can fix it ASAP. I have been praying for her and strength for you as well.

Marley
As always, prayers are the best medicine a friend can share. Your family has been thru a lot and I am glad you do have things to keep you busy.

Your heart design is darling and I would so love to win it because it is special stitched by your hands.
