Eyes right?

Tomorrow will be the last day for the special drops I have been putting in my eye and I must say it feels very much better. Still won't be able to wear lenses though - I was cautioned about that by the eye specialist. I need to wait till the new ones are ready - should be sometime this week.

In the meantime I haven't been able to do much sewing. Neither the distance glasses or the reading ones quite do the job properly. I did manage this little textured piece.

It is a scrap of red rayon that I had previously stamped in gold, then stamped with bleach. Both stamps were carved wooden blocks from India. I freemotion stitched fairly roughly all over and because it wasn't properly stabilised (intentionally!) it developed texture.

This will be cut down and faced to be part of the new banner for the Contemporary Quilt Group's exhibit at QuiltWest in May. I still need to produce a piece for that. I know what I will do, just need to be able to see better to do it.
