2013 WIPocalypse - May Full Moon

I'll start where I finished last time - I went to the opticians on Monday afternoon to have my eyes checked as I had been experiencing some worrying phenomena.  However things had improved by that point in that I wasn't seeing flashes anymore.  Anyway the optician did a thorough check and I am very relieved!  There are no holes or tears in either retina and my general vision is the same as it was last July when I had new glasses.  I do however have a lot of floaters in both eyes, and at the moment the ones in my right eye are making themselves known.  The optician said that either I will get used to them or they will settle down.  In the meantime, if I experience flashes again, I need to go straight back.  So all's well that ends well.

On the stitching front, there has been some progress on Enchanted Garden, but not a finish because I was out every night Monday to Thursday this week with one event or another.

However the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight.  All that remains is to finish stitching Fairy 4 (wings already started), the leaf she is kneeling on, some more ground surface and then the last of the back stitching.  It is half-term this week so I will be home every night except perhaps Thursday.  The plan is to have this piece finished and at the framers on Saturday.

The weather has improved - it was so sunny and warm today that I went out without a coat and ended up carrying my cardigan.  Here's hoping that you are getting some sunshine too.


  1. Your little fairies are looking beautiful! I'm glad to read your eye problems isn't serious. Floaters are a pain in the butt!

  2. Wow, so close to being finished!

    Glad to hear your eye problems aren't anything to be too concerned about!

  3. Love your work! Can relate to the floaters... Like a mosquito flying in your vision. You may get used to them and finally ignor them.
