Little has been done in the sewing department it seems this week. Yesterday I worked on one hexie flower for the Handful of Scraps quilt and got some work done on one present that I can’t show. I met Melanie and I got Aniya’s Xmas present taken care of and we went to three stores and were pretty much in and out fairly quickly considering that the stores were busy. Two loads of laundry done too and 3 batches of cookie dough made and stored in the refrigerator. Melanie and Aniya will be over later afternoon to make cookies.
The hexie flower not yet complete – but to show that I did get a little bit done!
One item from the shopping trip which has been open and eating has begun! Love these and have gotten them several years in a row.
And under the Christmas tree it is looking festive. The two boxes on the right are empty and had presents in them at one time for my mother – when she died I found them in her closet as we were clearing the place out so I took them home with me – she even had the bows still on them – I guess she liked the boxes so much she didn’t want to toss them so now I use them for decorations and a memory – Aniya liked them so much she thought she could play with them when she was here last week so I thought what better gift for her then to get a box for her that she could keep along with a pretty bow on it too. She can keep treasures in it – right now there is a small book and a bag of candy in it for her. I think at 5 she will like that kind of present.
Today is what I hope will be my final eye check up with the eye surgeon from the initial eye surgery I had in February and then further treatment when the cataract surgery in the summertime had a complication – My vision has been much improved and I think I will finally be able to toss all of the eye drops! I hope anyhow. I guess I will find out. There will be little to no sewing done again today – The appointment is in the morning and other than lunch we do not have plans to stay in the city – we barely like to shop there anymore as we both prefer to shop on line – Melanie will be over around 3 or 4 for our baking session and maybe I can get some sewing done in the evening? We will see.
