I didn't even get to take it easy this morning as I had be out for an early doctor's appointment. That accomplished, I then had to see the ophthalmologist in the afternoon. They took me right away but I was there for over two hours by the time it was all done. I had to get the drops in the eyes and yes it was a tear in the vitreous lining as I had guessed.
Not serious at this point but there is some danger of a retinal tear so I have to be rechecked next week. It is quite annoying as I've got a bunch of new specks and threads for floaters as well as flashes of light in the corner of my eye. This too shall pass. (I hope).
I've a few more pictures from retreat. This square in a square quilt in Countdown to Christmas was done by a first time quilter. She had her sister as a teacher and did a wonderful job.
I just love this chickadee wall hanging! My friend, Anne, made it. She had the top done and spent the first afternoon free motion quilting it. I think she did a wonderful job. I hope you can see some of the stitching.
Christmas was definitely a theme this time. Did get a couple more pics. Since they are gifts, I won't add them here.
Besides the postage stamp blocks, I did some blocks for an exchange and then did a bit of free form playing with fabric just for fun.
It's only about 10 by 10 inches. I worked out some of my ideas about how to do it though. I may do more, or I may simply border it and use it for a small project.
