Once again I had a weeks rest in hospital to get my medication sorted out. And a few tests done on the sideline.
News is good and bad. Cancer from neck down is all controlled, cancer in brain is out of control. We are tackling this with chemo pills which I take twice a day at home. They have given me a life time frame, but I wont dwell on that at the moment - just say between 6 and 12 months - but that is worse case scenario, and you all know I will fight this, so it will be longer. I am feeling so much better after a rest.. I would much rather email people than talk on the phone, because I am finding some people too depressing. I want happiness and sunshine not doom and gloom. :) But every ones wishes are more than welcome.
I didn't take any craft stuff to hospital except for one small Tralala piece which I will sew up and post shortly. Before I went into hospital my DH brought me a lovely smalls baskets to display any smalls or ornaments I get stitched before I go. So that is giving me incentive to stitch littlies.
While away I DH brought me a lovely footstool to elevate my legs and feet while resting and stitching.
Lovely soft leather....Oooh....my cat Tui loves it too. A bit hard to get her balance though.
DH also brought me a lariat necklace/bracelet to go with my NZ Evolve Charm collection. I also got the bead 'Aroha' and the silver charm "Devotion' ...I have put these charms on the lariat with the silver charm 'Forever' that DH brought me last.
I just love Evolve, and other than the small sheep charm, I have never added any other type of charm available. I only added the sheep I got, because its cuter than the Evolve one.
Righto onto my latest project....cotton dishcloths. Decided to get out some knitting cotton, and knit some up. They are great, last a long time and can just be thrown in the washing machine. Also the great thing is they take no time at all to knit up. And a great project because the days are getting cooler.
Something to look forward to, next month, DHs employers have shouted a few nights away in Napier, to rest and relax. I cant wait. Funnily its one of the only places in NZ I have never been too. I have been to Hastings but not Napier. Hopefully there are a few stitching/quilting/craft shops someone could recommend to me.
Hope you are having a lovely day. Look forward to comments and emails :)
