How are you all doing.
I'm not brilliant but in the true spirit of being British, I am fighting the good fight and trying to fill my days with positive moments.
I've been busy with my Christmas exchange and my giveaway winners hand-made prizes,so can't show you them just yet because I haven't sent them. I haven't forgotten you guys! I have decided to send everything together: charts and all, because you know what my mind is like post-chemo! Chemo brain still lurking and I know, just know I will forget something or send something to the wrong person. This way I can keep tabs.....or that is the intention!
I do have a few things that I can show you though.
This is my latest block from the quilting magazine.
So...I skipped a few pages to see how it should look like when completed and cut the fabric from that image rather than the instructions.
And of course, me being me, I got to the last part, sewing the two halves together and I stitched the wrong side. Which actually makes a really pretty diamond pattern and I was tempted to keep it BUT I am supposed to be learning new blocks so out came the pin (must buy a ripper: on my to-do list) and then I stitched it the right way around. I am pleased that my seams all see to match. I can't remember what this block is called but if I never, ever, ever do this one again....it will be far too soon!!
I have also had a chance to do some cross stitch for myself. Not a lot, just enough to keep me interested in the project.
I'm enjoying it and hope to do more this week.
Tomorrow I start my art course! I am kindda nervous and kindda excited. I will be part time but everyone else will be full time. I'm hoping this won't cause problems but since all I want to do is art, then that is what I will focus on.
Now, on a slightly different note. I know I have several readers who have been on the bc journey and I was just wondering: does anyone know of any links with Tamoxifen and anxiety attacks, or more specifically, heart palpitations (pounding)? Any feedback much appreciated xxxx
Now, have a great week and see you again soon!
