It has been a long time since I have blogged and so much has happened. The Tea Towel Tour 4 is done the picture above is what I did on others towels and I will post my apron later this week. The gals did an outstanding job.
I have been embroidering lots of custom Christmas items for my shop. It has been a lot of fun. I plan on posting the patterns I used for the items this week. You might have noticed that my vintage embroidery blog is gone. It turns out that Vogart is under copyright so I had to take down all of my vogart patterns and then I only had 4 patterns on the blog so it seemed useless to keep a blog for those. Since, I have bought a huge box of workbasket patterns and will be posting a new pattern once a week on this blog. I hope you will all enjoy them.
I have been knitting a lot lately. I think it is the cold weather and the warm feel of the wool on my hands that keeps me knitting. I actually finished my first sock this last weekend. I was so excited that the whole way home after Thanksgiving I talked about my knitted sock and all the new socks I planned to make. I bored T to death but then again I have to hear about music stuff and all the new computer games so I am sure it was fair right? Well in my head it is fair and I am always right. hehe.
Here is where I get a little personal so stop reading if you like.
T and I have been trying to have kids for the last 10 years and have done several rounds of fertility treaments and they were unsuccessful. Since the hormones and stuff made me a crazy girl with mood swings all the time we stopped and decided to just try and if it happened it happened.
Then I turned 32 last year and I was like hey I am getting older and we either need to start treatments again or decide to adopt. So we decided to do one more round of fertility treatments and I went to our women's health clinic to see the fertility Dr. and he decided to do a surgery where they go up inside with a camera and see if my tubes are open and look around the uterus. Well it turns out I have the worst body parts ever and he punctured my uterus. They quickly scheduled another surgery two weeks later and the same thing happened. This time they were able to get the camera in and take out a tissue sample. They found out that I have uterine cancer.
The cancer is slow moving and totally contained in the uterus. That is a good thing. I am on medication that is suppose to help breakup the tissue inside. The Dr. knows I still want to have children so we are going this alternative route instead of the normal hysterectomy. The down side is that this medicine makes me so tired and gives me the worst cramps in all my life. On the upside we caught it early and I still might be able to have children. In six month (April) I will go back in to have a tissue sample taken to see if it is working.
I still plan to blog just not as often and I am still a crafting fool.
To leave on a better note here are some alien buttons I made. T loves aliens and big foot so he loves these buttons. Now just to figure out a big foot pattern. If you have one let me know.
