Little Blessings ~ A New Start
On Thursday, I had my first of several eye surgeries to improve and prolong my vision. This was the initial surgery for my left eye and all went well. I saw the eye surgeon the next morning and he was pleased with the new implant lens but I was having some issues with swelling and blurry vision. The swelling is better which is a good sign and my vision is a little better in that eye, but I have a long way to go.
My prescription glasses have been fitted for the time being with a clear lens for my left eye so that I can use the right eye lens. It is an odd lopsided feeling. My eyes need to learn to work together again. Have to teach these old eyes new tricks.
On Wednesday, the day before the surgery,
I cut and bagged the pieces for a this new quilt.
I have had these fabrics in my stash for a few years,
just waiting for its time to sew, about two yards of the border print with blocks and half yards of the other two fabrics.
To these I am adding some fat quarters of soft and pretty tone on tones and also some "I Spy" type blocks of little farm animals cut from scraps left from other projects.
I love scrappy quilts!
