a bit of this and a bit of that *VBS* I'm perking rather slowly this past week and weekend. My left eye has once again reared back and declared 'war'! And the battle rages on. I gave in and went to the opthomologist on Friday, quite sure it wasn't an infection, but concerned enough to merit the trip. A small amount of damage to the cornea, more eye drops and an ointment for my face, which looks 'parched'. It was an up and down weekend, meaning I napped frequently, as "closed" is a good place for that eye to be. I could see improvement by Sunday afternoon, and altho it's not back to normal, I'm coping better. I worked on binding in small 'stints'. This is the older flimsey that I'm "looking" at this week. It was made sometime last year(??)and is 58" square. An odd size I think, but Railroad Crossing is like that. Laid out on point usually results in a square quilt. I've decided to add an upper and lower border, probably piano keys to give it some length. Then I'll pin it, machine quilt it and call it DONE! Amen.
Tuesday morning sun spotting was lovely *VBS* I love the rosy glow just before it breaks the horizon. I've had an eastern view frequently over the years, and much prefer it to looking west in the afternoon. We've had rain over the weekend, and the grass is taking on a slightly green look, no leafing out as yet tho.
I've changed Ebby's food amount(just call her "Pickle Belly", and also when I give the food to her. Amazing how much MORE she is awake and underfoot when she's not food saturated!! And lately I've been thinking about how curious we all are about 'things'. Each other, the quilts, how you might decorate, and what it would be like to be a mouse in the corner, or a bird on your shoulder. *VBS* So here's a "Tuesday Tidbit" for you....
A tiny peek into a corner of my kitchen *VBS* Very important corner, couldn't live without the coffee maker....how about you???
