Some Catch Up

I am at the halfway mark of having the cataracts removed and replaced with new lenses. 

This was right afterwards, tape still on

Had the right eye done and next Tuesday it is the left eyes. I had spent 3 out of 5 days last week visiting doctors and again the first 3 days of this week. With being gone so much I had very little to share as far as what I've been working on. I could get a little cutting in on a couple days but that's about it. 
I am so amazed how quickly my eye has adjusted to the new lense. I can see so well in just 24 hours, so today I spent the day sewing and cutting. 

Was able to get these block done today and it felt so good.

Been cutting blue fabric for this months RSC 16. 
I had decided that a would make a small quilt each month using that months color instead of a rainbow quilt. My thought is to have some quilts completed to give away, basically speaking baby quilts,

I'm using Metro Twist by Sew Kind of Wonderful and their Curvy Ruler
This is not a pattern I will use as a go to pattern for the rest of the year. It's one that will be taught as a class at the quilt shop. So this is a sample beside this month's quilt. Taking care of two things with one item.

Plus I'm getting along on the border, halfway done but not sure if I'll make my goal of having it done by the end of the month.


  1. it is a pain having to visit doctors - I see my eye specialist next month and I'm wondering about cataracts too

  2. it is amazing that suddenly we can see better and realize that we have not been seeing well for a good bit of time, lovely work on all your projects!!

  3. So glad that it is going well for you and that your sight is so much improved. I hope that the other eye goes just as well! xx

  4. Hope the eye is still coming along well. It's not fun to do all the doctor stuff but it sounds like you'll be happy with the result. Enjoy your stitching time.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
