Back from the abyss

It's been a while (again) after coming out of hospital it feels like I've been in no mans land for so very long. I've not been idle though, I've any amount of crafty things to show you from spinning to knitting, crochet, felt making, rug making, paper making and of course the occasional journey into paper crafting. It's been difficult going into my craft room though so the inks and paints have stayed in the cupboard for so long. It's that time of year though isn't it? All the bits I've been making have to be transformed into presents!

So here's the first!

I bet everyone has got one of these knocking about in the cupboard under the stairs! The Rubicks cube, how did we ever live without it? I found one up in the loft and brought it down with someone special in mind! Why does this strange little object grab us all, is it just a man thing? I know someone who just won't be able to stop himself taking up this challenge.
The stamps of course are indigo blu and speaking of stamps, I haven't bought a new stamp since I was in hospital, now you'll know how I'll I've been! 

Such a lot has happened while I've been off the radar, not least the loss of a dear crafting friend and whilst most stuff has been painful amongst it all I have found such support from unexpected places, mostly from people I havn't yet met. So thank you so very much for you messages of love, in a world where there is much trouble, joy lies in our relationships with others.

Off to make more Christmas pressies now

I'm so glad I didn't miss your post Michelle. As usual you have the best ideas and make a wonderful job of putting them into being! It's lovely to see you blogging again and I hope you go from strength to strength.

If I miss any posts coming up for the forseeable future it's because I'm having a difficult time at the moment .... I'm ok but my Mum who has Alzheimers had two more nasty falls 5 weeks ago & broke her hip. She's still in hospital and we have no idea what's going to happen yet when they decide to discharge her so I'm spending hours visiting every day & dealing with various authorities. Not a fun time but we'll get there.

Take care and sending a big hug.

Hi Michelle, how lovely to see you posting. I visited yesterday to see if you had been back on. I'm so glad I didn't miss you today.
I have been wondering how you have been going on for so long.
I love what you have done with the Rubiks cube it's brilliant.
I had bad news at the end of October my cancer as spread. It's in my spine and my ribs. They say if I'm lucky and it stays in the bones I might have a year if I'm lucky. If not it will be a few months.
I am just trying to be strong and get on with it and enjoy Christmas with my darling Grandaughter Maddsion who is 6 and the rest of my little family.
Stick with it and keep strong all my love and hugs xxx ChrisB
