A New Stitching Update
My eyesight has suffered from cataracts and I finally had the one surgery this past Thursday. WOW, it is like have a brand new eye. I now have 20/20 in my left eye and everything is clearer, brighter and sharper..........it is unbelievable what a new lense in your eye will do. The second one happens on the 19th, and who knows? I may not need my reading glasses any longer.
I finally managed to stitch a larger project before surgery; when I say larger, I mean fabric count. I did Bless Our Home by Lizzie Kate on 7 ct. Klostern. I bought a nice piece of quilted fabric with matching colors for a pillow. A good friend will put this together for me with a ruffle. I am not good at ruffles...lol
My Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons is almost complete. I am going to concentrate on finishing that one up this week or next.
I also started a piece by Stitchworks; Find Your Joy and Go There...............
I also received a wonderful gift from my friend Jan; she is crocheting necklaces with beads! She sent me a pink one for my granddaughter Hanna, and she made me a beautiful white/red biscornu. She knows that red is one of my favorite colors!
Enjoy the photos; until next update.
I have decided to update more often, even if it is only a few stitches! I hope all my 'stitchy' friends had a wonderful Easter.
