It has been several weeks since I have been able to sew. I volunteered to help with setting up an online schedule to work at our neighborhood high school's fireworks booth. Little did I realize I would have to work also! To add insult to injury, we had a record breaking heat wave that entire week. It culminated in the high of 110 degrees on July 3rd! Needless to say, I could not sew when I returned home. I was too tired.
I decided a couple of days ago that I could return to sewing the many projects waiting for me at my machine. Unfortunately, I could not find my extra rotary blades to replace the dull one in my rotary cutter. AAACH, I decided that I had to clean my sewing area! The tidying of my sewing area took a few days.....
I finally finished yesterday after my eye appointment at 9:20 am. The prescription for my eyes changed very little, not bad for a person with diabetes! Of course, my optometrist was obligated to examine my retinas by dilation and peering through my pupils. He said they had not gotten worse, again a very good thing for a diabetic.
Dermet and I went this afternoon and ordered glasses with my new prescription. This is a traumatizing ordeal....the glasses and lenses are expensive but the worst part is deciding which glasses look the best on your face. My new glasses should arrive in a week. I hope I made a good choice!
Here is a picture of the six blocks that I completed tonight.
These blocks are Month 6 of Civil War Melodies from Homestead Hearth.
