November UFO goal

I hadn't planned on trying to get a UFO finished in November since I was booked for cataract surgery. After watching the "informative" video the clinic has you watch before surgery, I was convinced I would never see properly again. I know they have to tell you all the things that could possibly go wrong, but when one of them is "loss of vision" (that means BLIND, right??) it kind of sticks in your brain. Thankfully, none of that happened and my first eye surgery is a success--yay!
I decided to go easy on myself and will be working on getting "Walking on Broken Glass" quilted. It will probably be and edge to edge design, so should go pretty quickly. 

I don't think I've mentioned before that I joined a Facebook group that is doing the Primitive Garden quilt. Most of the participants are doing the wool version, but I had purchased the cotton version quilt several years ago from someone who had started it (only the hoe) and was selling the kit on eBay. It seemed like a now or never situation--it's good to have an incentive to get to work on the blocks.
The sew-along started last month, so this is the October block finished.
I'm almost done with the November block--a pot of geraniums, and I'm amazed that I am able to be working on needle turn applique already with my "new" eye!

  1. Good news that the surgery was successful!
    Wow--that is quite an ambitious project for cotton work. Are you doing hand or machine applique?

  4. Glad your surgery went well. I keep hoping I will need cataract surgery just because I'll be able to see so much better. Yikes. When did OMG move. I need to see what is happening with that. Good luck with your Nov. goal.

  11. Glad your 'new' eye is working so well. You're not letting some thing like surgery get in your way to keep working. Love the start of Primative Garden and the finish of Walking on Broken Glass.
