Thank you all so much for the kind comments and thoughts after my last blog entry. I passed on all your good wishes to my husband.
He had major surgery two weeks ago and is making steady progress. It takes time but he’s getting there.
We found out, today, that next month he moves onto the next stage of this journey which will be follow up treatment.
On the day of his operation I knew I would be home all day so decided to make my mum a necklace for her 90th birthday.
The style of necklace has to be fairly simple as she can’t work a clasp by herself so it has to be able to go over her head. She wears plain round neck jumpers all the time so a necklace of this style sits nicely on her.
This photo is my mum on her 90th which was last Saturday……………..
I’ve done a little stitching but nothing worth photographing. I’ve been knitting a bit too and finished this little bear – “pseudo Rupert” I call him…………..
I’m not all that happy with the way he turned out – I love the knitting part but not the sewing up – I can turn a decent piece of knitting into an untidy mess in the blink of an eye.
I’m gradually getting the desire to stitch back and I’ve enjoyed the little that I’ve done. I’m hoping that if things settle down and hospital visits are reduced then I might manage a bit more.
You’ll see from the above photo that we’ve had a bit of snow, fortunately not too much but January has been a very stormy month and also very cold. Poppy was mesmerised by the snow falling.
Today we’ve had sunshine so I thought I’d post a photo of her enjoying a sunbeam.
I hope all is well in your part of the world and that January isn’t being too harsh.
Once again thanks for your lovely comments and for stopping by.
