Mr Bone Jangles is home

I had the pleasure of taking Mr.Bone Jangles to his new home with the chiropractor.

I walked in her office and Nikki said "What is that?"
I turned it around and said "Thank you for taking care of my daughter?"

Her immediate response was...... "SHUT UP! REALLY? NO WAY!"

She was so happy and her face was blood red.
She could not believe that I made Mr Bone Jangles for her. She even said the color of the material is the color of her walls.

NIKKI,
I am so happy that you love Mr Bone Jangles! Thank you for all you do.

It is reactions like this that makes stitching gifts for others more than worth it.

I think it is perfect. I bet she knows how much work went into him

What a fantastic reaction!! I feel the same way about that making it all worth it. I bake very complicated and time-intensive cookies every Christmas, and the only people that get them are the ones that REALLY appreciate them! =)

Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my OWOH blog post. I used to do quite a bit of cross-stitching and love your Mr. Bone Jangles and the thoughtfulness you put behind the gift for your doctor.

As a fellow Christian, I also really appreciate how you've shared your faith on your blog. I'm so glad to get to "meet" you through OWOH! *Ü*
