Well, I think I've managed to settle down. I'm back to work on a few projects, but not much to show today. I did find an old project that I had promised would be a free download here, and forgotten about....
I had started hand-quilting it, with RAYON embroidery thread, what a mess that was. And it was extremely difficult to see unless I was quilting in direct sunlight. The thread tangled something awful. I picked it up, decided to heck with it, and tore out the hand-quilting. Then yesterday, I tried to quilt it by machine, which was also a disaster, so I tore THAT out, and started hand-quilting again. This time, with cotton hand quilting thread. That is going nicely, so as soon as I'm done, it will be a free download! It's a very large table runner, but you can put the appliques closer if you like to make it smaller. I just hope I can remember all I did with it to make the pattern.
Last night, we ordered new glasses from Zenni Optical. Glasses start at $6.95! The one thing you want your optometrist to do when you get an eye exam is to measure the pupil distance, as it can be difficult to do on your own. They have a neat feature - you can upload a pic of yourself and try on glasses! This is the pic I took of Sam for that purpose, I thought it turned out pretty nice - the one pic I have of him not making a face.
Just wish I had that nice hair. *G*
