Hi there May, it's lovely to 'see' you but I'm sorry that the problem continues. Your patience must be worn very thin by now - I'm sure it's very frustrating as well as painful. I hope that surgery will be both soon and successful. You are missed! These swaps look brilliant, the full bunting will look fab by years's end. Hope you are receiving lots of TLC. Big hugs to you, Nicola x

Well how lovely to see your post, and your wonderful bunting swap, great idea. How beautiful are those cards as well!
I'm just down the road - no don't panic, I mean I'm in the same country!! I don't think I will get to the tennis out your way but if I do, I will give you a holler!
Hope that surgeon can sort out your shoulder soon.

Hi May!
I sent you an email already but wanted to come over to your blog and say Hello too and thank you for your darling sampler and goodies. They arrived in today's mail, much to my excitement and surprise. You are speedy! It's a pleasure to meet you and to be your fifth partner is this great swap. Thank you so much for everything, so lovely and I will enjoy all my goodies. :)
I'm so very sorry to hear you've got a frozen shoulder! I developed one in 2007, sooooooo very painful. I was very silly and didn't go to the doctor for a few months, thinking it would go away - didn't realize I had a frozen shoulder. It took about nine or ten months of physical therapy to be pain free and have almost my complete range of motion back. Thinking of you and hoping you don't have to have surgery.
Thanks again for everything!
Sally xoxo
