My life and jewellery business had to be put on hold as I was in and out of the hospital waiting for new lungs. Thank you donor for giving me the opportunity to live again. To breathe easy for the first time in my life. Thank you for letting me still create jewellery. Still go to fashion shows, (and organize them! check out www.cfforcf.com, me and the 'lady team' raised over 30,000 dollars this summer for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation) You can check out our stories all summer long in the local newspaper at http://www.caledonenterprise.com/caledon/searchresults?r=category:Caledon&q=hattie
After 3 weeks in ICU, 35 days in hospital and 3 months after my successful surgery, I've begun designing again and it feels wonderful. Just in time for Christmas.
Although I missed all the cute summer outfits this season, I am looking forward to pouring in to the fall clothing looks this season with vengeance!
