Happy Dance!

I have finished one of my UFOs!

This is Moments that take our Breath Away by Designs by Lisa.  I finished it tonight :-) It is stitched on 28ct Jobelan using Gentle Arts threads.

The next piece to be worked on in my rotation is Margaret Sherry's Crafty Cat.  This is how it looks before I start the week's stitching on it:

The last week has been quite hectic.  I have taught two Functional Skills sessions - one in Carlisle (a 200-mile round trip) and one in my workplace.  I do enjoy doing the sessions, but it is quite tiring when I do a session and then go straight back to my admin job...I'm doing two more next week - another in Carlisle, and one in Blackpool.

My mum started the next stage of her treatment this week.  She had an operation to insert a PEG into her stomach, ready for the start of her radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment.  The treatment will be on her neck, so it may become difficult for her to swallow.  The PEG allows liquid food to be passed into her stomach if swallowing becomes impossible.

I was supposed to be having a minor operation on Monday, to have two suspected BCCs removed, but the hospital decided to rearrange it to an earlier date and neglected to inform I got a telephone call the other day, telling me that I hadn't turned up for my surgery...Needless to say I wasn't happy!  It has now been rescheduled for the 23rd December, but I wouldn't be surprised if it gets rearranged again...At least I now have Monday and Tuesday off work (booked to give me chance to recuperate)!

Happy Stitching!

A beautiful finish, a lovely sentiment.

I hope all goes well for both mum and you Lynn. How annoying the hospital made a mistake, seems all to often I hear of this these days.

Take care xxxx
