Crafting 2 :Health Nil

Missing in action again. Sorry.  I spent a week at my daughter's and then she and Missy Moo came back with me for a week.  Toddlers are wonderful but exhausting!

Unfortunately my health is now deteriorating now and it looks like the cancer has spread.  I will find out for sure on Tuesday.  If it is then I will be back on chemo and hopefully, hopefully, I will still respond to it.  I am so desperate to get to live until June, to see my youngest son reach 18.  I never wanted anything this bad.  To see my youngest become a man; that is all I want. And yet I feel greedy asking for this extra time.  Cancer sucks.  

Anyway, on with some positive news.  Do you remember Evergreen Angel Mistletoe?

 I finished Everygreen Angel Ivy today.  My photo skills suck. I will try to get a better photo tomorrow morning for sales through Lakeside Needlecraft.

I also had some crochet finishes; some I can't show you because they were part of the workshop I taught.  The final one is this Saturday so I can show you after that.

I made my granddaughter a sleeved, hooded poncho. I'm not entirely sure I attached the hood right but it looks ok when it's on.

As you can see, she is really pleased with it!

Right, onwards and upwards.  Evergreen Angel Holly next!
