In Recovery

I had eye surgery late last week, so have been in recovery. Which means very little doing of anything and lots of rules 😦 no outdoors (except with sunglasses on); no bending over; no lifting; no coughing (except with my mouth open); and the worst thing? have to sleep with a plastic eyepatch taped over my eye! Good thing?  I’ve been promised ‘close to perfect eyesight’ when it all heals up in a couple of months 🙂 I’ll let you know if it was worth it or not.

In the meantime, my stitching mojo returned. Just when it’s rather difficult to stitch for more than a half hour at a time? Strange! Anyway, I managed to finish this little beauty yesterday.

Bloom – Birds of a Feather

Fabric: 32 count Vintage Country Mocha Belfast
Threads: Gentle Art Sampler Threads (as called for in design) 

It was the fun design and joyful colours that brought my mojo back, I think. I’ll frame and keep it close by to remind me to bloom.

Happy Stitching 😉
