Today’s a big day. My vision insurance kicked in on the first and I was finally able to get an appointment with an eye doctor. I broke an arm off my glasses back in September or October and have been using Gorilla tape to hold it on for months. The tape finally gave out just before Christmas and the world has been blurry since.
I made some of these birdies with the leftovers. I learned a couple of new techniques from these and practiced a few I was shaky on. They are such a small, quick project which made it easy to rip back mistakes without crying. I did three of them and, along the way, I began to learn to be calm in the face of split stitches, needles that fly out, and fiddly little bits. And they’re so cute!
I’ve done some drawing exercises. Some hands. A chair. Ho hum. See, what happened is, I told myself I should draw and now my self is rebelling. It’s perverse the way my brain won’t do what it’s told even when my brain is the one telling my brain what to do.
I spent yesterday cleaning out the school room which had become a dumping ground during the Star Wars marathon we called Christmas break. Back to school tomorrow – let the whining begin!
I don’t want to end with that. Here’s a gratuitous kitty cat picture.
*I tried to find a link to the old commercial about Alice getting glasses, but no luck.
ETA: Found it! a local ad in NYC I believe. Explains why nunya heard of it before.
