Thanks. It was a good day and it got all the housework done, in a hurry.

Back to hospital today for the next operation but they don't want me there until 1pm. Just hope they keep me in over night again because there is no transport to the island after 5pm. I have lined up a... Continue reading

Oh what a lovely idea!

I find that my eye is improving but I have no sense of balance and see everything very lop sided. Definately not good enough to drive. I had said that I would make some cushions for my friend Kay but... Continue reading

It is thank you. I am back in next week for the last operation and will be glad when that is over.

I find I can't read for too long so these books are perfect, lots of pictures. I have bought the Japanese version of Yumiko Higuchi's books so when I saw an English edition I thought it might explain some of... Continue reading

I see there are a whole lot of new finds on Mona is Wales. So much new information is coming to light and it is good to see ’the myths’ put beside the evidence and some kind of truth being exposed. Very exciting.
Hi Lesley, I have the same kind of problem, one eye long sighted and the other short. They have done the long one first and the other will be done next week. But my surgery is being complicated by my sinus problems. At the moment they did laser surgery on the left hand side when they did the cataract and they will do the right hand one at the same time as the right eye. One side of my face is not swollen and the other is. I knew that I would have to have glasses again when I went into this so that isn’t a problem. Having full anaesthetic has it’s advantages as well, I sleep for 24 hours afterwards. I have other people lined up to look after the Children’s Classes just in case I can’t be there. I got all the kits ready in advanced and there are some volunteers who are stitching some out so that they can help. The class is full and there is a waiting list, so that is good. Thanks for the kind wishes.
I have to wait a couple of weeks until I can see it again.

That is me. My eye is all bandaged and I am finding it difficult to see with the other but I know I will adjust. I had trouble with the operation and that will take a few days to get... Continue reading

It is a rather cool idea and Monique just loved having him.

Thanks for that. I will have to get my husband to find it I can’t see anything very much at the moment.

The stitching of the "field of stars" is now finished, all eight stars. (I still have to remove the tacking.) No 7 is nothing like the pattern. I made a mistake and kept changing it. No 8 is perfect, not... Continue reading

I find that statement a bit of a relief! Or maybe an excuse?

I keep thinking of that sliding doors movie and how it could have turned out.
Thanks, It was good that this one had a happy ending.
Neither did I until I visited Hill Top Farm. She was also a champion sheep breeder as well.

My inability to see clearly does have it's funny side you know. The quilt top I am working on along with the cushions requires me to use my sewing machine. This is great. I can see the stitch guides clearly... Continue reading

I hope so. Last year I stitched the 12 days of Xmas as part of the Guild raffle. This raised more money than any other xmas raffle we have had. I just hope these attract as many people to buy tickets.
