World Embroiderers' Dary 2017
Some 'Silly Stitching'

The after effects of the eye operation

I was warned, but I didn't believe them.  I can see dust and dead ants and spiders webs and other things I have been missing. (Like just how many wrinkles I have on my face.)  I never knew that I had blue rings around my brown iris',  I thought my eyes were  just plain brown.

I finished a friendship block for one of my quilting friends.  Before the operation it looked good.  After the operation it looked terrible.  I have now re-stitched it and I can see an improvement.  The brief was to use blue fabrics on the base cloth provided and she wanted a basket of flowers.  I like the idea of a handbag.

But I just had to add a little colour.  I used a deep red for the stitching around the handbag and added French knots to the centre of each of the flowers on the bag.

I was tempted to use a bright yellow in the centre of the flowers but restrained myself and used a bright blue for the seed stitching.

It is always a good feeling when you can tick something off the 'to do' list.

Congratulations on your improved vision. Does this mean you will be doing more dusting and cobweb sweeping now? Or more intricate embroidery maybe?
You did a great job on this 'floral handbag'.

I can not leave the dust. I am going to have to have a few weeks of in depth cleaning to get all the bits I have missed. Or maybe I might employ someone to do it for me!
