This week seems to have gone by very quickly, not quite sure why as I seem to have spent a lot of time not doing very much, but thinking I should. I had my little op and was very impressed with my treatment. I felt like a teenager when I got there as most of the others were quite a bit older than me - one man was 95! There was one person younger than me and she said she felt like a baby - she was. We were the only ones to have a general! The consultant did tell me later that the younger you are the harder the eyeball and therefore the more difficult the operation is, so she prefers to do generals in those cases. (I am no spring chicken I might add!) I felt a little better, but not a lot! Having had it done I now realise how bad my eyesight is in the other eye, but I have to wait a while to get that one done.
I also completed a small quilt and matching cushions to go in the window. No picture, but the quilt was made for a baby from a panel and the cushions from matching fabrics. Debby and I work had to change the shop windows and aim to do them about once a fortnight. It can be quite a challenge at times because rather than just putting fabric in the window we like to show people what you can make with the fabric, but we don`t alway have time to make the things that we want to. We get lots of very positive comments, so that puts even more pressure on us! I have brought home some fabric to make into children`s garments, as I don`t think a lot of people realise that the fabric we sell is ideal for making clothes. I also have some denim and a range of Moda Feedsacks fabrics which go really well together, but somehow I am not feeling that inspired, I expect it will come in the end - hopefully for them to be completed in two weeks time!
I am back in the shop tomorrow for the next 10 days or so. Debby will be on her knees, and in fact when I have finished my class tomorrow morning she is not hanging around, but leaving the county immediately, she`s probably worried that I will find another reason to keep her there!
We received an email yesterday about a quilt exhibition at the South West Craft Centre, Church Lane, Tavistock. The quilts are all made by a lady called Margrette Munro, and is open until 24th March. Tavistock is a great little town on the edge of Dartmoor - my husband and I alway used to say we would like to retire there! If you get a change go and have a look.
