This morning, as usual over the past week, I woke up and opened my right eye - and then gingerly opened my left eye. Shhh - I think that there could be a little improvement. I still see double when both eyes are open ( they don't seem to want to focus on the same point) but the left eye is not seeing double at the moment. Hope that I am not fooling myself but that seemed positive.
Which then made the next moment so strange. I really REALLY want to finish this "Tuesday night quilt" that I keep harping on about - painting the forth bridge would have been quicker - and so started to put on some sashing with the sewing machine - only to find that the machine needed re- threading. No problem - I have a needle threader after all - apart from the fact that, suddenly, my right eye couldn't see very clearly. HELP ! I was beginning to feel like that song "Four wheels on my waggon and I'm still rolling along" - what could go wrong next? Well - perhaps the eye might have been more focussed if I was wearing my reading glasses rather than my long distance ones! Phew - that was close!
Anyway I am now making progress with the quilt - all 7 rows have been "sashed" with the backs slip stitched on five of them. Three rows have now been joined and I am hoping to do the others before the craft group tomorrow so that I can take it and hand sew the back seams. That will just leave the binding and the hanging sleeve to go. I have to say that we were told to do the sashing and binding with calico but I quite like being a rebel - I wanted the black to give a "stained glass window" effect.
Other than that it has been a warm day here so I have mowed the lawn, got rid of some ikea candles via the freely given facebook page for our area, changed the bed, sorted through some boxes from upstairs and loaded a bag of raffle books and prizes to take with me tomorrow for church. I think that I have earned a sit down - tonight, on ch4 at 6:30pm, there's a programme on musicals followed by Les Miserables - just my kind of viewing!
