Trying to beat the storms

So this is progress on Doc Hudson. It is now half done and I hope the next half goes quicker then this half did.

Well I had a lot to say but I hear the thunder and the lightning flashed so better get off computer. Until next time Happy Stitching!

This looks like a mess but will be....

Good Evening everyone! I've been able to stitch quite a bit the last 2 days, thanks to my eye doing somewhat better. It looks like a mess right now but I'm hoping it resembles a car. It is a Disney Car....Doc Hudson, but right now you can't tell it. It will go to my great nephew, Wyatt. When it's done I'll mail this and Aubrey's Lady Bug piece to their mother. She'll either frame it or have it sewn into something for them.

I finally gave in and went back to eye dr. this week. The good news was it isn't an infection and the implant is fine. He could tell something was irritating my eyes though and they were sore but he doesn't know why. I asked if it was an allergy and that's why my eyes were so runny. He said no the eyes were runny because of the irritation. Anyway he gave me some eye drops to take for 2 weeks and hopefully that will clear things up and no more problems. I hope.

Now that the weather is warm the flowers in my garden are coming up and pretty. Well most of them are pretty. There are some that are really ugly. I'd like to get rid of those. I have to find out if those are flowers or weeds. If weeds they are going for sure. If flowers maybe at end of season I'll dig them out and plant something else. I didn't plant the flowers actually I'm allergic to flowers, especially roses and there are a couple of rose bushes out there. I still think that's part of my eye problem but we'll see. The roses are pretty, and I figure as long as they are outside and I don't have the sliding door open should be fine. The lady that lived here before me planted the flowers. Now I get to take care of them. I love watching them bloom.

Well....until next time Happy Stitching!

A very quick finish

I loved doing this piece. I think it's so pretty. It stitched up really fast, done in about 12 hours.

Well....until next time Happy Stitching!

Finished! Spring Flowers

I loved doing these. They were so much fun and so pretty. For sure I will be doing the other 3 patterns in the book. Now I'm doing Believe by Stoney Creek. I hope to do a car pattern for my great nephew, Wyatt after this piece.

I am starting to wish I never had the cataract surgery. The first one was a piece of cake but this one, it's been about 2 months and I'm still having problems with my eye!

Last Friday my brother, sister-in-law and I went up to Hesperia and met up with our aunt and uncle. It was a lot of fun. We also stopped at an Amish store that was really fun. I could really spend a lot of money in there.

It seems nice to have the warmer weather here to stay. I have never had a garden before but the lady that lived here did have a small garden. I'm trying to keep it up. It does look like the lilacs are dying now, so I'm going to need to cut them down. I'm home the rose bushes produce roses even though I'm allergic to them. We'll see...

Well...until next time.....Happy Stitching!
