Some crochet projects

A finished project.
I have seen many versions on the internet.
I love the simplicity of the pattern and made my own.

I use it as a craft bag,
handy dandy to take with me
or to tuck it away for the night at home.

You can find the pattern here.

Another finished project.
Both a gift for a baby girl and a sweet birthday girl.

You  can find the English pattern here and the Dutch here.

And the new project, it is going to be a blanket.
I know I have some squares from the granny square challenge waiting for me.
Funny how this procrastinating kicks in when you are almost finished.
Stay with me I will get there.
I used this tutorial.

to the new followers 
I really appreciate you stopping by.
And thank you for the sweet encouraging comments on my last post,
I`m sorry I don`t always answer 
or when I`m very late with answering.
I read every comment and enjoy them very much.

Chemo 4, 5 and 6

Gosh, it has been such a long time ago.
I have been planning for weeks now
to write a post
but I`m lacking in the energy department.
I kept thinking, tomorrow
I will write a new post.
Well alas, 
there is no law telling me I have to write a post
and I know you all understand.

Chemo 4 was a bad one,
I had to go to hospital.
My white blood cells were so low
I got an infection with a high fever.
Six days in hospital for antibiotics.
But it already seems like a long time ago,
chemo 5 and 6 passed by
and I`m so glad the chemo`s are done.

And although I have the feeling the worst part is over,
I`m not ready yet.
Radiation starts Oct. 10th
5 days a week for 5 weeks
and a prescription for hormonal therapy
is in my bag.
Hormonal therapy means one pill a day for 5 years,
with probably the symptoms of menopause.
As I said I`m not ready yet.

The pictures show the content of a lovely package I received
from Kathy, one of the dearies from the dottie angel camp.
I`m going to enjoy making something granny chic with the doilies,
yarn and handkerchiefs.
