. . . the blind woman returns, and the winner is . . .

WOW!!!
What a wonderful weekend.

Each time I think about it, my eyes feel much better.  How lucky I feel to have been able to share in the wonderful experience of the Stitches and Craft Show in Melbourne with my friend Jodie.  
This was part of the AMAZING display of her selvedge works of art.  They looked fantastic all together, and should be in an ART GALLERY!
As a special Show Surprise, I made us "staff aprons" keeping with the theme, and she was delighted.  Actually they were very handy and serviceable - I even got a couple of orders for the Brisbane Show.  I'll get busy girls when my eyes become a little more focused.  I think they'd even be good for school.  I can see me making more of these.
. . . oh, and the blind woman returns.  After all the excitement of the Show, let it not detract from the week prior . . . 
Yes, I had Laser Eye Surgery last Tuesday.  My WONDERFUL friend Brenda (who by the way loved her quilt) looked after me SOOOOOOOOO well.  I really enjoyed the rest from home and just not having to make any decisions was fabulous.  She is a treasure in my life.  I am recovering well, although still a little blurrrrrrry.  Not quite up to driving yet, or teaching 23 Grade 3's.  A few more days quietly at home and I will be back into action.
. . . and the winner is, (for the giveaway on my last post) . . . thanks for waiting guys

I can't wait to hear how good your eyesight is when the blurriness goes! I'm still horribly jealous though that I couldn't come and see and help on Jodie's stall too - it looks fabulous!

Well if I hadn't known you had had surgery I wouldn't have known at the craft show. You looked amazing. It was wonderful meeting you. Ohh and I did admire those aprons you had made from afar - very stylish.

Annie, I'm so very glad to hear the surgery went well and you are on the mend. I'm very proud of you for being so brave. I've thought of doing that procedure myself many a time...
Love the aprons. How ever did you find spare selvedge in Ballarat???

Hello - just nipped over having seen you around. Laser treatment? That's seriously brave - not sure I could face it. Great that you had such a fantastic friend around to help.

That apron! All the selvedge goodness! Magic to see. Emma x
