Am I Mad or What

Am I Mad or What you may ask what am I talking about well I am selling some of my yarn on eBay such as Aran, Chunky & Super Chunky yarn as I need to decrease my yarn stash 

So what do I do I order some yarn okay it is 4ply Sock Yarn but in my defence I will be selling some of the dark sock yarn that my Hubby won't wear if I knitted him some in that yarn so what I have ordered is bright ones which I love & can knit socks for me or even as gifts for people I know will like them

Hubby has put some brackets in the shed to make some shelves up as I need room to get some of my stash of fabric in to the shed as need to to get some out of the bungalow, it so the bungalow is not so cluttered we are in the process of turning the small room in to a bedroom we have a new carpet being fitted in a few weeks we then can either get a sofa that turns in to a bed or a proper bed for the room.

I have taken out the table I had in my bedroom so will only have my horn cabinet in there so it don't look so cluttered & more like a bedroom lol

I am itching to do some sewing but still not up to it plus until the work is done I couldn't even if I wanted to but hope to within the next month or so, watch this space for more new on that

Consultant's Vist

I saw the Consultant which went well & as much as I would love to keep him as my consultant when he said he wishes to see me in 4 months I asked if i could be seen at the local hospital which he said he write to them so that I will be seen every 4 months for 2 years then every 6 months up to 5 years.

The lymph fluid has more or less stopped I have now done away with the dressings so am pleased about that.

I am slowly getting my strength back & am doing more but trying not to over doing it 

DH has been doing a lot outside to keep busy I think he just pleased that he can do something without thinking about me as I know he has been worried as the family

I have been doing some Genealogy & making connections & I did the DNA last year & that has been helping make connections, when I did it I didn't see how is was going to help but it will 

I hope to get back to crafts it will be knitting in the first order but later quilting, apart from me getting back to it I need to sort out my sewing area as we was going to move so we packed up a lot of stuff so as DH is decorating (When he can) need him to do our small room so I can start to unpack just want to do it now but we still have to order a carpet for the room so it will be a little while

Post Surgery

Well the surgery in March got cancelled so had it in early April I ws in hospital for 4 days
I had a lot of the Lymph fluid draining out so much so was changing the dressing up to 6 times a day even had to get my DH up at 2 in the morning to change it & another day having a shower at 4.30am it has slowed down now so it not needing to be changed so many times.
Well the good news is that the Lymph Nodes came back clear so as my eldest son says I am in remission not clear.
Me I don't care what you call it clear or remission I just happy that it hadn't spread to the lymph nodes.
I will be seeing the consultant on the 15th May & if it then just follow up I will ask if I can go back to my local hospital for those as it is so much easier for me.
On the craft side while I haven't done any since my surgery I have upgraded my Electric Quilt Program from EQ7 to EQ8 only had it a few days so still learning it but what I like is in the fabric sizes I can put in Fat Quarters so if I am using them it will tell me how many I need of each colour  
Will post more when I have seen the consultant also more on the EQ8
