A Little "Hand"-iwork

First a quick "eye update" - the first eye was operated on and is doing very well.  The doctor said that the incision has healed nicely and the lens is well aligned.  So - Yaay!  The second eye is scheduled for surgery.  

Meanwhile, I have been very limited in what I can do - and with all the eyedrops that need to be put in each day, and extra time to rest, I haven't gotten a whole lot done.  

Still, the handiwork is a necessity sometimes. And it is a great way to occupy myself while listening to audiobooks.  As long as I can thread the needle, I can manage to stitch. 

Here is what I have accomplished. 

The fabric has distorted slightly, but I think once I fuse it to some batting and quilt it, that won't be a big problem.

Now to decide more stitches to fill the other areas.  If I am gone for a while don't fret.  I will return. 

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

I'm so glad to hear that you eye is doing well and that you are getting your rest. Your "hand-iwork" is coming along nicely - I like the flower in the fingertip - ;))

The had is turning out very nice. That's a good project. I am glad you can see to thread needles.

So glad to know all has gone well. I know I face that operation some time in the future. Cataracts don’t run in my family; they gallop! The embroidery is looking good too! Great idea.

This hand is looking so nice! I can only picture how beautiful it will be. Keep stitching at a slow pace, and before you know it, it will be done someday. No rushing therapy!

Sounds like you're doing well, and isn't it wonderful to have plenty to occupy your hands! I like your hand sewing piece. I looked at your inspiration piece and you should have lots of fun!

Glad all went well with eye #1. How long until eye #2? Hubs is doing his but no date set until after meeting with surgeon. The hand embroidery is looking terrific.

Nice hand. Ironing the hand, after it is finished, will help it to lay flat. Iron it well BEFORE you add the batting.

Love your hand work. Glad you are getting the other one done, which was yesterday? How long does it take to heal?
