Advent Swap gifts and NPNT pic

I am sorry it has been so long since my last post. I am still at a loss but am finding ways to fill my time, with journaling, catching up on christmas movies and I have done a little stitching. The only other time in the last 5 years my friend and I haven't talked in several weeks was when he was sick 3 years ago. It is hard filling the void as well as when I go online and open my chat boxes there is his name, this was one of the links in life we shared and enjoyed to the max. Bear with me as I work through life without him. Some days go by and others I might as well have the box of kleenex close by.

Here are all the goodies Valeria sent me so far in the advent swap. There are chocolates, an angel, shower gel, lavender, a sachet, some basil seeds, a placemat, ring holder, cupcake tins, more chocolate (a whole bag just for ME!!! :) ), a massager, cinnamon room spray, orange blossom aromatiche. Thank you Valeria, everything I have opened so far is wonderful. I still haven't heard if my package has arrived yet. I hope so, I called the post office and they said it left the United States on Nov 25th.
Now that I do not have any homework and am not completely exhausted, I am focusing on some small stitchery projects. Here are 3 blocks I have finished this week for my Nice People Nice Things Quilt. They are not perfect but then neither am I. God knows I am trying to do a good job on them. I hope the red iron on pen washes out.
Have a great day and God Bless all of you!!!!!!!
Praise the Lord for our lives and our families no matter how imperfect things seem to be.

It's a hard time of year to be missing someone, sweetie. You're in my prayers. Do keep the kleenex handy.
Your swap gifts look great, and your stitchery looks just fine! I like it a lot.
Big hugs, sweetie!
