A Postcard A Day - Friday 22 April 2016 - Friday Smiles

Good morning lovely friends,

Thanks for dropping by and reading my post. I hope you can smile with me. I have lots to smile about. 

This was where I was yesterday:
I was at the hospital for my six monthly check-up at the oncologist. He gave me a clean bill of health! I am smiling from ear to ear! Phew! It's been five years now since I had an operation to remove a malignant lump from my breast and consequent chemo therapy and radio therapy. But I'm fine now! I thank God.

Here is a funny (about breasts):

Now for my usual postcard:
This is a card I sent this week. It went to Russia to a girl who loves dogs. That will bring a smile to her face.

I have been doing some lacemaking again. I had started a star (in readyness for Christmas!) but I got stuck, so I have now unpicked it and have started a bell (also for Christmas. I am hoping to hang this one in the tree):
I've got as far as the surrounding ribbon. Now for the fill in bit. Tomorrow is another day.

My DH is finishing the bathroom. It's a large wet room and I have already had my first shower in it. He is now doing the sink. I had a white marble surround made with a hole in it just the right size for this colourful sink, which I fancied:

That is it from me. I am linking with Annie at A Stitch in Time to share smiles. And later on also with Virginia at Rocking your World Friday.



  1. I'm grinning from ear to ear for you Lisca. I'm so thrilled you had the all clear at the hospital. Good health is never something we should take for granted is it?
    I love your lace making and that wash basin is stunning....just my colours and so pretty.
    Have a great week my friend.

  2. Oh I love your basin - beautiful and what a gorgeous colour! Glad to hear the clean bill of health factor too! The lace making looks fantastic I really wouldn't have a clue where to start - have a lovely weekend Lisca!

  3. Congrats on the clean bill of health! That is very exciting to hear. And that post card-the dog looks like my dog. Made me laugh. And I love your bowl- its is gorgeous, and I can't wait to see your bell. Happy weekend!

  4. I so love that sink, it's gorgeous! and the dog.... brilliant and he looks so happy maybe he's dreaming of bones Lol! Have a very happy Friday, Angela x

  5. Wonderful news Lisca - that made me smile too. Your little washbasin is a delight - clever idea there. x Jo

  6. Wonderful news from the hospital Lisca. God is good!
    Well done on tackling the bell. The infill is a lot of work for what you get, but I do like the finished article, so I hope you manage it and are pleased with yours too.
    I love that little sink in the new wet room. It is so perfect for that space. Happy Friday. Kate x
