New Felt Colours!

It's almost been a month since my surgery and I'm happy to say that I'm finally feeling like myself again!  Due to a huge fibrous mass on my uterus that was rapidly growing right into my bladder, my gynecologist decided that it was best to do a hysterectomy along with a bladder repair.  My bladder was so squished from the fibroids taking up so much room that it could only hold 1/2 a cup of fluid at a time.  As you can imagine, I was constantly running to the bathroom and going out anywhere always meant hunting for the nearest washroom.  Because of the weight of the fibrous mass, a lot of stress was put on the neck of my bladder, so, once the uterus was removed, my bladder was tucked up into a sling to hold it in the proper position.

I cannot tell you how much of a difference the surgery has made!  I can now go for hours at a time without needing to go to the bathroom and the ever present feeling of discomfort is gone!  Although I had a few complications after my surgery, the benefits have been well worth it!

I am still taking it easy and my dearest hubby has been a wonderful nurse, cook and cleaner!  My dear mom has been such a help with getting orders ready for mailing and my two boys have been a blessing too!

Ok, now for the other good news!  As most of you know, I recently decided to discontinue a few of the not-so-popular colours in the Wool Blend Felt collection and replace them with some pretty new ones.  Well, they're finally here!  The 9 new colours are:  Linen, Butter, Georgia Peach, Lilac, Love Bug Blue, Aqua, Inkblot, Spearmint and Emerald.

Soon I will add another collection of felts, these will be similar to the Polka Dot felt, but will have hearts and stars instead.  Here's a sneak peek at a few of the lovely colours in the collection:
The new Wool Blend Felts are now available in my shop.  The Heart and Star collection will be available soon!

I just want to thank all of you who have sent me well wishes, thoughts and prayers, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness!

Out With the Old Sale!!

Hi dear friends!  These last two weeks have been quite a trial since my surgery and recovery has been a little rocky because of some unexpected complications.  But I'm happy to say that I'm finally feeling a thousand times better and I've gotten dreadfully tired of doing nothing all day!  Anyway, I've been doing a bit of thinking and have decided that I'd like to freshen up my Etsy shop a bit, so I'm planning on adding a whole bunch of lovely new colours to my Merino Wool blend collection of felts and it's time to make some room for them! Out with the old, in with the new!! 
There are a few colours from the original collection that will be discontinued and these will be available for a limited time at a very good price for those of you who'd like to snap some up before they're gone.  The discontinued colours are:  Espresso, Garnet, Plum, Asphalt, Cadet Blue, Juniper, Evergreen, Indigo, Cobalt, Royal Blue, Pacific Blue, Tangerine and Dandelion.

I've also got a lovely selection of mohair fabrics and hand woven wool felts that will be on sale as well.  I have such a huge collection of beautiful pieces of felt, fabric and mohair which unfortunately are just sitting in boxes, so I've sorted through them all and have found a nice bunch that will be on sale for a steal!

My shop is open and the DE-STASH sale is on till everything is gone!

PS  Thanks so much to all of you for your thoughts, prayers and well wishes for my surgery!!
