Short and sweet weekend giveaway

Yep.  October's end is coming near.  Damn winter better move as quickly.
 
I haven't mentioned that I am having difficulties with my arms.  The doctor thinks (and I fear) that my neck is worsening and causing this.  But I also have an impinged shoulder, whose pain is dwarfed by bicep tendinitis.  Wowee that's a strange thing.  The pain starts in the tendon, radiates through the bicep, intensifying during the two minutes in which you drop to your knees.  Sometimes it just makes you grab that flabby wing and doesn't get worse, but if it does, you have to wonder how that much pain could come from hanging skin and weak muscle.  I can't take the steroid pack until I get the kidney function test, which I failed to do when getting the mammogram.  I picked something up when I took Carole for tests, even though I foamed my hands at every dispenser in the place. The other pain in my ass is gone.  The one I've had for over two years of trying to get workers here.  The contractor's recommended framer that was to be here Wednesday did not show, nor did he call.  I'm done.  Minor issues compared to what others face.
 
So guess what?  I'm having a giveaway.  Again.  This sweet little pillow has not sold along with a few other items and I decided to offer it instead of the box I had planned.

It's a nice rustic linen in a medium tan, backed with the burgundy starred fabric.
6-3/4" wide x 4" tall adaptation of a sampler I can't remember.
Drawing will be Sunday evening 10/22 at 9 pm EST, US only please.
 
Leave your entry in the comments with your initials or name, or you can email me.  Keep in mind I can't contact you because of no-reply so please check back to see if you've won.
 
Enjoy your weekend.

Checking in on your blog to see what’s up. Found post and giveaway opportunity. Glad to hear ass pain gone but sorry about shoulder. Pillow is beautiful, if I don’t receive giveaway I think I will use your idea to stitch a little bag to keep scissors in for projects. Always a pleasure to read your blog. Take care.

Good morning, Marly. So sorry you're having so much pain. Sorry about the contractor too. I hope you're feeling better from whatever you picked up.......germ wise.
I had a bone density test in May and just found out this month (doctor is no-reply) from a visit to my doctor, that I have osteoporosis in my left hip. Also tore something in my left shoulder shaking debris into a big green trash bag. Pain in the muscle of that arm. I'm hating gravity more and more everyday.
Red is my very favorite color. Would be tickled to win your sweet sampler pillow.
Have a good weekend.

Sometimes I feel we are sisters from another mother. I love following your stories but hate to see you in pain. Hope there is some remedy in sight. For a long time I thought it was just me and contractors, so I feel some solace when I read your posts. I can't find the time (or glasses) to finish the stitching that I love. You are so generous and if that little baby needs a home you can shoot her over to eastern PA. Thank you for all you do. Feel better my virtual friend.

I wish you lived closer so you could check out the Mayo and see if they could help with all this. SOMEONE out there can help but where and who is the question. Love the stitched piece too. You said it did not sell. Did I miss a sale? If so I'm bummed. Your work is so perfect and who ever wins this will be very fortunate. Keep me informed on the arm. I hate that you suffer like this.

Popping in to wish you the blessings of the day and hoping you are mending. Wish a
magic moment could shine on you and bring you relief. It seems our atmosphere is
heavy laden with something giving so many gravity pull and pain. As ever, your
works is so well done and appealing and your generosity of heart truly a gift.
