Greetings from now Spring South Texas (at least for 2 days). We have 2 cold fronts heading our way on Thursday and then a big one on Monday! My kind of weather!
There is a quilt store in San Antonio that has a UFO sit and sew on Tuesdays and then on Fridays once a month in which you pay $5.00 to sew with a group of quilters. I am going to attend the Friday group as it will provide me an opportunity to be around others with the same interest. I love blogging, but I miss the interaction with other humans. I love living in the country where it is so peaceful, but will enjoy being around quilters for a change.
In the meantime, I am trying to get back in the groove with my projects and having a difficult time thanks to the Steroid eye drops.
I am also waiting for additional fabrics to arrive for Celebrating Mary Brown so I can continue on with fabric selection. In the meantime for my evening project I picked up Block 7 of Sweet Stitches by Kathy Schmitz to work on.
I started this project in the 2015 timeframe but have only completed 6 blocks – there are 12 total in the BOM. The blocks are embroidered in black thread and with each month block fabric was provided to frame it with. This will make a neat quilt when I get with the program and work harder to pick up where I was in September on my UFO’s. Additionally I am hoping that being around other quilters with the same interest in quilting that my desire to quilt again will come back!
The Etc.! After 2 months, all is finished with the Cataract game of life! The drops gave me a lot of issues the last month – especially the Steroids. Now I am just dealing with the withdrawals of the Steroid eye drops. Hopefully I will begin to feel better by Friday. But I am off of them (threw the bottle away yesterday – 2 days early). My vision is fine, just need reading glasses but the dry eye will need more time to get better! I was having issues with the right eye — burning when I used the Systane for dry eye. I had my last check up from surgeries yesterday and told Dr Young about the issue with the right eye – would you believe that 3 eye lashes (bottom) were turning in and rubbing my eye!!! She took care of that and things are really getting better now – just dealing with the aftermath of getting off the steroid drops.
I will snap back soon. Have a wonderful day and enjoy stitching!
