One week and my eyes feel great! Just a little dry in the evening, but that seems to improve each day. I'm glad I did the Lasik!
And the doctor gave my healing the thumbs up today, so now I can actually get back to my semi-dusty sewing and quilting.
But first I need to share this pillow from early December - made for a friend's birthday gift.
I saw the fabulous pillow by FlossyBlossy last year and pretty much went beyond inspiration to copied. Both her design and colors were perfect, and my favorite color combo no less.
You can see that I added a little paper pieced gnome on the bottom left.
Both of us love little gnomes, so he was a perfect fit. I've used this paper pieced pattern a few times, he's so cute. I always like to use some linen for his face.
I decided he was a snow gnome, and felt he needed a nice, snowy home. A little pebble quilting was just right!
I wasn't so sure how well it was going to work, in and out of all those points. I did a little mocked up test run and found I could control the circle size well enough to manuver around those stars. It turned out great!
One last blogging picture.
Mark caught me trying to get a good close up.
