Frittering Away the Morning...

I have a radiation treatment and a Herceptin treatment this afternoon... So... I messed around with the purse this morning. 

I found some bobbin lace that fit the narrow edge of the purse exactly.  I did that part yesterday. That took a long time to get on just right. 
Today, I added three pieces of lace to the boring side.  I will do embroidery work over, around ant through this part.

I had already started the embroidery on the pocket side... I decided to do lace on that side too. 

After I got it all put together, I acquired a passenger.

Tessie popped in and inserted herself into the pocket.  Saying, "This will be perfect.  I can go everywhere you go, when you carry this bag...

I immediately decided to take a very long time to finish it... I wonder  how it would look completely covered in stitchery... Maybe a thick crust of bead work?

Whatever I do, I am NOT carrying it with a witch in the pocket!  Maybe I can tell her that she is too heavy and the doctors won't approve. Perhaps I can get a note from one of the doctors today... All I have to do is neglect to mention that she is only 5 1/4" tall and weighs about an ounce...

I have to run now. 

See you tomorrow.

Hope these treatments aren't too hard on you Casey. You've been through so much already. Maybe you should rest for the remainder of the day and have Tessie and Zar bring you your supper in bed! - Marilyn D., Oromocto, NB

Marilyn, the radiation treatments are only about 10 minutes long and a piece of cake. We went to a different place for the Herceptin today and they didn't require that I take the Benedryl and Tylenol that I was required to take at the other place. I can actually remember the whole day and don't feel like I am going to fall asleep any moment... It is great!

You are in my thoughts, Casey! Continuing to pray for you daily until all your treatments are over. Take care! That's a cute pic with Tessie in the pocket. It gave me a chuckle!

espero que el tratamiento fuese bien , yo voy a darte una idea para disuadir a Tessie, no dejes esa pieza como bolsillo, cosela por todo el borde y ya no tendra excusa , aunque conociendola , seguro que se le ocurre alguna otra manera .

Hello Casey,
Great job on the purse. It is some lovely lace. Isn't Tessie afraid someone might bump into you and crush her with only the delicate lace to protect her? Now if she could ride around on a hat... ;)
Big hug

Thanks for all of the good thoughts and prayers! They worked. I am essentially just doing the rest as preventative. I am now cancer free!
