If it's a weekday then it must be a hospital appointment - well, I might be exaggerating but that's how it feels! Today's appointment was with the consultant that I see regularly about my temporal arteritis and he declared my eyes fit and well (phew). Although he didn't actually say it, I do think that he believes the eye problem was connected to the TA and he has said that I will have to be on a low dosage of steroids for the rest of my life - if that stops the eye sight going then bring it on!
Did I mention that I drove to the appointment? Yep!! I drove - and then drove onto B & Q for some supplies before heading home. Oh the joy and freedom!! Of course, by now it's lunchtime, the house needs de-daisying and there's washing etc to be sorted. In addition I can't let a day go by without making something for the paper festival - so started to make some more flowers to put into vases in my area and around the church. These will be made the same as before but with 5 petals stuck onto a stick so that they can stand in the vase.
This afternoon the rocking chair is due for delivery (oh those MRI memories) and then I need to pop Millie through to the vets. I think that she has a light dose of Kennel cough and want to nip it in the bud. Hence the early publication of this blog as I also need to go out tonight to the WI craft group - we are making felt poppies for the WI wreath this year.
Sewing wise I finished the Lynette Anderson workshop embroidery last night - next step is the 200 hexagons to be sewn together in a random fashion! Anni Downs has also messaged me congratulating me on her fabric win - lets hope that it gets here soon!
In addition Wendy wanted 126 3/4 inch hexagons. Never fear, says I, I have a Scan and Cut! An hour later I had cut her a set and myself - this is sure a steep learning curve - but fun!!
