When I joined this forum back in December just after my diagnosis on of you lovely ladies posted a picture of a blanket you'd made during treatment and that inspired me to take up crochet again after 30 years and make a blanket for my niece who was expecting her second baby. It felt like a positive way to spend my time and good to create something.
Well, it's been a bit on and off and it's taken me the whole of my treatment but here it is! It's a bit wobbly and wonky in places and it's wider at one end than at the other but I did it. I've just completed my 6th cycle of chemo so today feels like my first official day post treatment so I thought I should get this finished this morning and as I was sewing in the final loose ends I got an email from my niece with a photo of her beautiful daughter who arrived last night! Definitely feels like a new beginning - hopefully no more drugs for me for now and a new baby in the family
I can't remember who made the blanket but thank you for inspiring me and also to all of you for all your good advice and for sharing your own stories and so much useful information that has helped me through treatment. I still feel like the new girl but hope that in time I can help other people now that I've finished (final sign off next Tuesday 13th)
