Good News!

Hello friends

First up...a new crafty project!
This is being featured over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today.
It is a blog hop with Lawn Fawn and there is a chance to win goodies -
dash over there!
More lovely squares have arrived - thank you so much. 
I love that there are so many different colours, it will truly be a beautiful bright blanket.
And thank you for all your good wishes regarding the clinic at hospital.
Yesterday was a good day..actually it was a great day! 
News from Henry was brilliant.  Forgive me if I go into a bit of medical detail here...
A week or so ago we were told there was a possibility they may have to pause 
radiotherapy to perform surgery again.  
Elliott's condition is that not only does he have a tumour but many cysts - 
these fluctuate in size and can cause problems.  
We have been living with the worry of further surgery but the CT scan has revealed 
that everything has remained the same, nothing has changed/enlarged - this is wonderful. 
Also, Elliott no longer has to have weekly blood tests because he is stable - 
when Henry told him the news it was like Christmas had come early!
Here he is looking somewhat tired but sporting his Christmas hat kindly made and sent by Anne.
She has beautifully decorated it with white felt Snowflake Pendant and Create A Flake Three.
Everyone's good wishes and prayers have certainly paid off - tons of thanks to you all.

Now, what other festive craftiness do I have in store for you today...??
I've been going back through my projects and I thought I would go into
Layered Poinsettia overload!
Here is an array of tree decorations.
 I've created them all heart shape, some felt and some card.
 Twine adjoins the hearts and pearls and gems decorate the centres of the poinsettias.
I would also like to send out a mention to all of you who have signed up to my 
website newsletter - over 200 of you in fact - WOW! 
We are more than half way through the Twelve Days of Christmas Offers but 
there is some real treats to come :)

Take care friends - I'm back again tomorrow!

Hi Christine. Fantastic news about Elliott. Christmas will be even better for you all after those two pieces of news : )) I love Annes hat, Elliott does look tired though. On to the tree decs, they are all gorgeous, you can't use the poinsettia too much. It is just perfect! Hope you have a good day today. Take care.

PS The horrendous winds last night blew over my outside Christmas Tree, so we pushed it closer to the house wall, when it is light this morning I will be out to sort out the lights as they are all over the place at present, I hate the wind, it frightens me xx

Hi Christine, Elliott must be over the moon with the good news no further surgery. Well done Anne for his lovely hat, and many thanks to you Christine as I have been wondering about a card for my husband and as soon as I looked at your designs I decided to do a large heart card decorated with poinsettia's.

Hi Christine, Some wonderfully happy news at last so you can now enjoy your Christmas. Elliott does look a wee bit tired but I'm sure he must be delighted with the news. The tree decoraions are lovely but can you tell us where you got the cones you used for your class? I love the cone tree you made and it would, as you say, make a lovely table decoration for many different occasions. Take care. Gemma xx

Well done Elliott - amazed he has any energy left fighting off his horrid illness - you look great in that hat! Lovely hearts - very fitting with all the love and care that have gone into making those squares. Aren't people kind when you really need them. Christmas cheer all round today! xxMargaretxx

AnneRD said...

Hi Christine and Elliott. Great news, what a Christmas present, there will be great celebrations in the Emberson house I am sure. The tree decorations are stunning, something for me to aspire to next year.
Elliot looks great in the hat, (he cannot have chocolate every days) and still with his lovely smile; I think Henry deserves one too for giving such good news.
