Good news from the doctor !

This last week I have taking alot of rest and I'm feeling good. No pain at all and lot of time to stitch :)
Last friday I got a telephone call from my doctor about the test results of the
investigated tissue. It turned out that all bad cells are removed and even
the tissue of the neighbouring area turned out to be complety clean. In
other words, everything that could have turned nasty is intercepted.
Boy oh boy ..... I'm so happy with this news !!!

~~~~~~

Last wednesday the postman came and brought me the first kit from LHN with the first 2 months of the year: january and february.
I love the threads from crescent colours that are included.


In most parts of Holland it was snowing heavely last friday so I was told, but here we only had less then 1/2 inch.
But now this sunday we woke up in a white world and its still snowing.
And in the days to come they predicted even more.

Christmas present recieved

And then the doorbel rings and you see the postman holding a package. I'm very curious and see the name who send it, it's from Nina. I know she was sending a christmas present but that it was arriving so soon ... what a surprise ! (only 2 days to arrive from Hungary to Netherlands)

She wrote she wanted to make me smile when I was staying in the hospital for a couple of days (dec. 11th) and that I got her present before christmas, but her present didn't make only a smile on my face but a tear as well, because what she send is to beautifull for words.

Just look at the pictures and I don't have to say anymore ...
I hope you enjoying the pictures as much as I do the presents :)







Dear friend Nina thank you so much for this beautifull christmas present.
I'm still smiling :)

~~~~~~~~

I hope you all are going to her blog on december 14 th. because then she has her birthday :)
I send her an early birthday present 2 weeks ago (I didn't know how long it took to arrive and because when she has her birthday I'm in the hospital).

Finishing off the chocolate box

I have some stitching parts lying around that needs to be finishing off.

Today it was time for the chocolate box from LHN. I stitched it some weeks ago but didn't had the time to put it on the little teabox.

(Click to enlarge)

On both sides I attach a satin ribbon just for decoration

On the inside I glue some fabric with bonbons on it. It looks Yummie !
In this box I'm going to keep my charms, because I have alott of them and I think this is a wonderfull box for them.
