Where Does the Time Go??
I have been knitting & knitting without much time for anything else. Finally I have a break. I have NO orders right now so am working on my knitting room again. I don't know how it gets cluttered up so fast. I try to keep some order but it always gets away from me.
I still have the sewing bug. I am going to try again with the toddler quilts. Maybe I will have better luck this time. Wal-Mart here in town has expanded their store to include a craft section & groceries. I am not crazy about their fabric but I feel I can get some good supplies there. Now that all is quiet around here I am going to see what they have that might make some new toddler quilts. I bought the charm packs for the first ones from the Missouri Star Quilt Co. They were very cute & just right for little kids. If I can't find anything at WM I will reorder from them.
Since I found out that I have Macular Degeneration I am cleaning out the things that I don't use or haven't used in a long time. I have a floppy disc drive that I haven't used in years & am going to sell it along with some other things. Sticking it in a box & leaving it there forever is an example of how I hoard things like that. I had it rebuilt maybe 6-7 years ago so it is like new. I am not selling anything I need & as long as I can see to sew & knit I will keep everything that I can still use. I went back to the doctor & he said that I actually did a little better than I did 6 months ago. I am taking eye vitamins & also some drops & I can tell that I can see colors more vividly, but I can also see the tiniest little spot in the center of my vision in my left eye that is blank. It is not interfering with my crafts yet. My right eye is not as affected as my left & I believe that I can continue with my crafts for a long time to come.
I knitted a couple of outfits for some new babies as gifts. Here is a picture of Drew in his new hat & cardigan.
I also made him a blanket but no picture of that yet.
Have a Happy Easter!!
