I have just one thing to say........If you are over 55 and really believe you have natural blond highlights in your hair, you need to make an appointment with your eye doctor! You have cataracts! Believe it or not, I used to say that to my hairdresser when I'd go in for a haircut. I'd say, "I bet you don't have many clients who still have blond highlights at my age, huh?" And she, (of course) would agree and I would sit there all haughty and proud 'cause I was the only one! Ahhhh......NO! Not so much! Duh....grey, honey....grey! I was shocked! Not only was I legally blind in my right eye, I also have a slight cataract in the left (which will be removed on the 29) but the difference in color between the new fixed right eye and left is amazing! I see so much better now, I might just cook and bake again! Who knows? 'Course that would be less time for sewing.....and I'm not sure if that would work either. I'm sure these next few weeks will be interesting. Hopefully, my quilting colors won't mute.......I was even impressed with myself when I went through my Flickr stream. LOL
On another note, I want to show you #10 lady in the series. This is really neat because when Debra got herself, she took a photo of her with the quilt. Note how alike they look, but first see the finished quilt:
And now the two of them:
Debra was a commission quilt and she told me that she collected miniature sewing machines, bird houses and loved Christmas as well as being an avid sewer. I think I hit all the bases!
I also finished another two Halloween mug rugs before I went in for surgery:
I have two more in my head and then I think I'll be done with those. I did join another swap though. (Big surprise, huh???) It's called the potholder pass, but this time you also could sign up for coasters. I thought that might be fun for a change! Who knows what I'll come up with for that one????
So, my friends, that's it for today. I think I'll head off to the store and get stuff to make Roasted Tomato Basil soup and then come home and sew. You have a fun day too! AND......thank you for your many well wishes on my cataract surgery. You'll never know how I appreciate each and every one of you!!!
