Back in action again






Thank you all so much for your concerns re my recent health issues, I haven't been able to respond to everyone individually, but your comments and emails are very much appreciated. Thank you all.
I had to have a stress test today to make sure my arteries were OK. I received the results on the spot and everything is fine. All of my other tests came back this week too and apart from being deficient in vitamin D all is well. I'm amazed how much better I feel after only one week of very high doses of vitamin D, I didn't realize all the things it affects.

I've been trying to get some things on my etsy site and have added decorated papers below and a brooch that I made for my exhibition above.

I have a necklace almost completed and hope to have that available over the weekend.
