A blog about my interests, which include fabric landscapes and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Short check in

 Thought I'd pop in for a minute to let you know that my eyes are healing well but I still can't see anything close up and mid-distance is a strain so my computer time is still limited.  I've been trying to skim through your blogs so I don't miss anything important but I haven't been making comments.  Gosh, I miss you guys!  I see my optometrist April 19th so hopefully I'll have my new glasses shortly after that.  Can't happen soon enough.

In the interim we've been working hard cleaning out a condo belonging to our friend who is heading for a nursing home.  A lot of work but a good distraction for me right now.

Keep talking amongst yourselves and I leave you with a couple of fun links (just so you don't miss me TOO much!!!)   

- There's an excellent article HERE about cleaning and oiling your sewing machine.

- Have a look at THIS!  I've always been fascinated by miniatures and this certainly caught my eye.

A short update

 First surgery was a success - second one is on Wednesday.  It appears, however, that my hiatus here might be longer than I first anticipated.  If the first eye is any indication I won't be able to see much in the way of reading anything until I get new prescription glasses in about six or seven weeks.  It's going to be a very LONG six or seven weeks because I am not a person who can sit and do nothing and certainly not for any extended period of time.  Poor Resident Chef might just be serving divorce papers by the time all this is over with!

Carry on folks - I'll be back, hopefully sooner than later!

A new project and an announcement

 First of all, the landscape I've been working on still isn't ready to be shown so instead I thought I'd show you the beginnings of a new project....

It's a terrible photo I know...but....this pile of 'stuff' consists of two well-loved onesies belonging to our two littlest grandsons and there's two different pieces of Minky fur behind.  Two teddy bears have been requested so Grandma can't possibly say no!  I'm going to try to just use the onesies for the body of the bears and then create the head and 'hands' from the Minky.  Fingers crossed it works!

And....I wanted to let you know that I might be MIA for a couple of weeks or so and my blogging presence both here and visiting with you all will probably be sparse.  I will be having cataract surgery on both eyes and don't know what to expect as far as the healing process is concerned.  Bottom line is that I'm very much looking forward to being able to see!!  Please play nicely amongst yourselves and I'll be back as soon as I can.

Today's quote..."This woman has fought a thousand battles, and is still standing; has cried a thousand tears, and is still smiling; has been broken, betrayed, abandoned, rejected, but she still walks proud, laughs loud, lives without fear, loves without doubt.  This woman is beautiful.  This woman is humble.  This woman is you"
