I had intended to be back before this, but it's been quite the week!
Tuesday was wet and cold, and I had gone out to have a day at my local embroidery guild, hoping to finish my part of a group project. I left some of my equipment behind, and when I came home to get it, there was a parcel in the letter box - thankfully the postie had put it where it was sheltered, but I was glad to be home to bring it inside sooner rather than later.
The parcel was from Mia of Craftartista blog, as part of her first blogaversary.
What a range of beautiful goodies she had packed up - and I was one of ten or twelve 'winners'.
Love these wee stitched wooden ornaments, and the chocolates did not last long 😏
The coffee was a total and very pleasant surprise!! Love a good cup of coffee, and I have several friends lining up to share it too! The ribbon is very pretty, and those black labels are so dramatic.
Love this embossing folder, and the snowflake bling, hearts and sparkle washi tape.
The ring. filigree corners and earrings are beautiful, and I look forward to trying the glue glitter pens.
So looking forward to using these doilies too.
Thank you Mia, this was a bright spot in a difficult week!!
Late on Monday evening I had noticed a slight visual disturbance in my left eye - by Tuesday evening I was quite concerned as I had flashing lights and 'cobwebs' there. Wednesday I contacted my doctor, and long story short I ended up at the Eye Clinic at the 'base' hospital an hours drive away.
Turns out it is part of ageing, and a relatively normal process that often gives no symptoms, but in my case which is not unusual, the retina was being tugged at which was what was causing the disturbances. Worst case scenario is a detached retina, but thankfully I have dodged that bullet.
Moral of the story - don't get old!!
Moral 2 - have great neighbours - mine basically gave up her whole day to ferry me both locally, and when my family couldn't help, up to the base hospital. Then she and her husband 'fed' me before they let me come home, and checked up on me this afternoon in case I needed to go back!! Thankfully it is improving, but my computer time will be limited for a day or so!
