Fly away Jingle Bird!

Spread your wings and find a new home.  A quick giveaway to you my friends.  Yes another.  Unplanned, but I want to offer a little gift of gratitude for your support.  I stained the bird with walnut dye because he was a bit too clean-cut for me.  He measures 4 1/2" square without the fringe. 
  I will draw a name Saturday evening at 8pm EST. 
 
 
Carole is doing well except for the pain.  The surgery took longer because they had to replace a questionable lead from the first implantation before adding the new third lead, change the generator/transformer in the unit, and this all took place before the node ablation.  Somehow, they burned her chest with an instrument but she is not allowed to use any medication on it because it is too close to the incision.  No driving for 3 weeks and wearing a sling on the surgery side for the same length of time.
 
If you would like Jingle Bird, leave your name, initials if no-reply, on this post.
Thank you all again!

Continued prayers and healing thoughts for Carole.
I would love to have a chance to win this sweet pillow. Thanks for the opportunity!

brenda said...

I read your blog everyday, but don't offer many comments, so I am a little apprehensive about joining in when there's such a wonderful give-away. On the other hand, I love your Jingle Bird, so I gotta try! Although I don't personally know you or your sister, I'm glad to read that Carole is doing well.... don't forget to take care of yourself!

CalamityJr said...

You're amazing - all you've had going on there and still wanting to share Jingle Bird. Please include me in your drawing; I know he'd be happy in my home :) Blessings to you and Carole!

Cricket-bug Corner said...

I hope your sister gets stronger every day!

Simple Pleasure said...

Marly
I hope Carole continues to improve and can be home for Christmas. Too bad she received a burn from an instrument... Prayers will continue.
I trust you will be able to wind down a bit and get a restful night's sleep.
It is very thoughtful of you to offer a giveaway, with all that you are juggling right now. Thank you!
Busy Hands...Happy Heart

jan said...

Marly,

Glad things are still going well at the hospital.

Don't apologize for your menomoods; your sharing them makes the rest of us on that road laugh at ourselves too. The best medicine, as they say.

I love your Jingle Bird; I looked through my freebie patterns to see if I had it, but I guess it's not a freebie. I rarely buy cross stitch because my meno-eyes have too much trouble doing it.

I would love to be included in your drawing for Jingle Bird.

Happy, happy Christmas. ...jan

The Jingle Bird is beautiful. I loved him when you first posted. He would look splendid in my collection.

glad to hear that she is doing well and I am sending positive thoughts that the pain goes quickly for her ...((hugs)) to you too :) love mouse xxxxx

celkalee said...

Having the procedure behind you is such a good thing. The anxiety of these is overwhelming at times, without the menopausal enhancements. Prayers are answered in God's time and I think you may have been privy to that. Your generosity of Jingle Bird is evidence of your kindness. He is wonderful.

Lori from Notforgotten Farm said...

so very happy to hear of good results ~ you have all been through so much.

Dove chocolate is known for relieving many symptoms of menopause ~ {I can vouch for that} well, except for weight gain. yeah, doesn't help anything in that department!
wishing you Peace,
