I've Got Great News! Looks Like I Can Stick Around And Design For Awhile!

Just a quick note... I've just returned from my visit to the plastic surgeon to get my stitches removed from last week's surgery. I got the fabulous news that the pathology report came back good, and I am now cancer-free! Yay!

Now I can get back to crocheting in peace! Here I am with the stitches removed. Eventually I'm hoping the scar will be practically invisible. I have an amazing plastic surgeon!

I may not look great now, but at least I have a lot more hope for the future!

Going Crazy Waiting... And A New Hat Design!

I'm about to go crazy waiting on a call from the surgeon who did my facial surgery for malignant Melanoma last week! I'm supposed to hear whether I have the all-clear, or whether further treatment will be necessary. I was supposed to get the call yesterday, but with the Memorial Day holiday I figured today... not! So guess who will be all over his voice mail tomorrow!

I guess it's a normal reaction, but now anytime I notice myself in direct sun, I think twice about it. That's why I've decided to start "rocking the hat look!" I'm almost finished with this week's new crochet design, which I will be calling the Custom-Size Foldable Sun Hat. The pattern will be published sometime between now and Saturday and you can check at this link for it.
