Dreading this post

I have dreaded this post so I`m just going to start.
Last week I heard I have breast cancer.
It went all very fast, 
on Monday I went to the doctor because I felt a lump,
Wednesday I had to go to hospital for tests
and at the end of the day
I listened to a doctor and nurse telling me 
they found malign cells.
It is still very unreal and I feel like I`m playing a part in a movie.
Someone will yell "cut" and life will be back to normal.
But I`m slowly realizing no one will yell cut and this is reality. 
This week I will have some more tests 
and there will be some clarity in what treatment I will have to get.
I know an operation is needed, probably next week.

You probably understand why there wasn`t a new granny square last week.
I`m going to place a new one this week,
but I don`t think I will be able to place a new granny square after this week.
Who would like to have a guest post,
you will have to write about a granny square pattern
we didn`t make so far.
If you would like to participate send me a mail at,
containing the text, link, picture and if you have a blog your blog adress.
I will schedule your post in one of the coming weeks
so please send it this week because I won`t be able to schedule your post after this week.

I`m not sure if I`m able to keep posting regularly
but I will try to at least write an update once in a while 


  1. My prays and thoughts are with you during this challenge. I commend you for wanting to continue writing, could be a blessing. I wish I knew more to help out with your granny squares. I hope you know that there are many who are hoping for a speedy treatment and recover. Take care of yourself

  2. Ik kom vandaag voor het eerst op je blog en dan gelijk dit vreselijk verdrietige bericht. Heel veel sterkte de komende tijd!

  3. I am hoping for your recovery and future wellness. I'm new to your blog today.
    All of your beautiful creations are an aspiration to me. You are in my prayers and thoughts.

  4. Ik volg je pas sinds gisteren en wilde net je mooie blog in zijn geheel gaan lezen en je te laten weten dat ik van je blog geniet.
    En dan lees ik wat je nu doormaakt. Wat kun je schrijven als je zoiets leest?
    Dat iemands leven op zijn kop staat.
    Dus hoop ik maar dat het je helpt dat we hier met je meeleven.
    Veel sterkte voor jou en je familie.

  5. Heel veel sterkte!
    In my thoughts and prayers...

  6. I just found your page today from a link on Pinterest...I was saddened by your post today. I am sure this is a very difficult time for you and your family.

As I work on this beautiful project I will pray for your fast and complete recovery. Love and hope sent from across the ocean...
