This month is all about being thankful, and I can tell you that I am extremely thankful that my cataract surgery went off without a hitch (I was pretty worried--lol!). There are just a couple more weeks of eye drops and then I will feel like I'm back to normal. I'm so pleased--no pain and I don't even need my cheaters anymore (I opted for special lens) except for up close stitching. Such a far cry from the days when they made you lie flat on your back with your head immobilized with sand bags for days!
|I finished quilting Walking on Broken Glass before my eye surgery, just in case--haha!|
This is my November One Monthly Goal--happy to have it complete.
|The quilting was done using a large leaf pantograph so it was finished in a flash.|
|The rows of Walking on Broken Glass are staggered and the ends get trimmed off. There were enough of these cut-offs to play around with and make into another Meals on Wheels place-mat with more fast quilting--clamshells.|
|I completed the stitching on the big Buttermilk Basin Let It Snow snowman after my left eye surgery, so I pretty pleased at how he turned out considering the right eye hadn't been done yet ;-)|
|Block two of Primitive Garden is finished and I have been stitching on the next block-- the blackbirds on barbed wire.|
|The finishing instructions for A Blackbird Gathering have been released, and my top border is fused and ready to stitch.|
|I'll be working on this today--my Slow Sunday Stitching. |
It's so nice to stitch on wool and occasionally check out those melting icicles!
Walking on Broken Glass was also on my Fourth Quarter Finish-A-Long list HERE
