I'm back home - in my own space, my own bed. It feels SOOOOO good I can't tell you. I actually got here about 4 pm yesterday, but I've been busy unpacking, reading/sorting/dealing with mail and going to the bank. Good friend Denise did a little basic shopping for me before picking me up from the bus, so I haven't had to face the stores and don't want to for a few days yet.
My operation went smoothly and I'm healing nicely but I'm some sore and tired. I have the results from one biopsy already - no cancer, not even any pre-cancer HOORAY - with 2 more to come. I should be hearing from the BC Cancer Agency either Friday or Monday. If all clear, life goes on as planned. If not, I'm off on another path and we'll have to see where that goes.
I did get some stitching in, of course. Even incisions don't stop stitching needles. As I mentioned, I have finished Scotland.
That makes the four maps. Now, just have to decide how to finish them (frame or wall hangings??????) and get them off to Annabelle.
Then I started on a small New Berlin kit - Peace Dove.
Then there was so much thread left in the kit that I redid it, French version this time.
I think I'll work on my Oldest UFO for the rest on the year. And for 2013? January 1st I start an HAED SAL (my first HAED and I make it a SAL??? I am crazy.), a promised birth announcement - Precious Moments Noah's Ark - and continue with the O-UFO. Those are the big items planned. There will be smaller pieces - the ones I take to Sisters - but they will be whatever strikes my fancy when I need to choose.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! I hope you spend a wonderful day with family and friends and know the joy of loving and being loved.
