This Is Not What I Expected!

I am sorry to have to tell you that I am having to cancel my classes this year up until some time in the summer.  I have been diagnosed with breast cancer and treatment begins tomorrow with an operation.  Chemotherapy follows on in the New Year, and I have been advised to cancel all commitments that involve deadlines for the next 6 months.  This means that classes will not take place in the first half of the year, but I hope to resume them in the summer and autumn, and reschedule the cancelled ones in 2016.

For those of you who have already booked and paid for Plastic Fantastic 2015 the Anglo Danish course, I have returned your cheques to you, or refunded via Pay Pal.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank every single one of you who have sent me their thoughts and prayers in messages and comments on the blog, by email, text and Facebook.  Your good wishes and positive energy has done a lot to carry me through these last two weeks since diagnosis. You have brought smiles to my face when I needed it most.

One of the things I think about when I feel a bit low is to consider just how many of you have been through this, and much worse, so I count my blessings, and I am focussing on getting to the other side of the treatment.

You will probably know that I will not be doing any Jewellery Maker shows until the summer, but I have plenty to keep me occupied, and that includes a couple of projects I would love to tell you about but can’t just yet. However, I hope it won’t be too long before I can share these exciting things with you.

In the mean time, I wish you all a fabulous Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.
