Happy Dancin' For Contact Lenses!

What joy! I am able to wear my contact lenses again! The worst of the pink eye is over and my eyes are feeling loads better.

I get to leave the office a bit early again today for yet another doctor's appointment. I'm unable to schedule my surgery until I see my GYN today for yet another evaluation. Even after this, the practice's scheduler couldn't guarantee a date before the end of October. What has changed to my internal plumbing since July? Nada, nyet, nothing. So I'm not exactly thrilled about doing the "moo" routine again this afternoon. But, if that's what it takes to get on the surgical schedule, I'll do it.

Andrea had to return home from school - not feeling well. From what I hear there is a lot of crud going around the local schools these days.

Those of you who attended the St. Jude's retreat may remember the Biblical verse "cheater cloth" I had and wanted suggestions on what to do with it. I'm slicing each block up with 1/2" extra on each side. Then I'm taking 2 and 1/2" strips leftover from a Moda jelly roll and boxing in each Bible verse and drawing. There are 15 squares in all. Once I see how large it will be, I'll decide what borders would look nice and how to quilt it into a nice lap-sized quilt for my Mother. It's a nice little project that I can work on for 15 -20 minutes each morning before I head to the office. And now that I can "see" again, it won't take me long to complete the top.

One thing I definitely have to think about it what holiday gifts need to be worked on. Other than the lap quilt for Mom, I do not have any ideas. It might not be a busy Christmas season in the sewing room this year.

Yay! for feeling better. I'm sorry to hear about Andrea though. The cheater cloth is going to be great. I love how you've really thought through what to do with it. Yeah, I'm way behind on Christmas items, too. I haven't even done the autumn projects I hoped to accomplish. Hugs!

Glad you can see again. Sounds like a great idea with the verses fabric
