Last week slowed down a lot which was so good as a cold came my way and I was quite tired from all the work from the last few weeks. So I had a couple of fun projects commissioned by friends. This one a Secret Santa gift of a Hello Kitty bow in this super cute neon Hello Kitty fabric.

My other commission was by a friend from my dance class who is an enamel artist – she wanted a scarf she could wear in her studio. This is made from the wonderful stretch fabric I found at FabMo. She was so happy with the gift to herself and is planning to put it under the Christmas tree.

Midweek I had an Opthamology appointment to see the specialist about how to look after the Pellucid Marginal Degeneration I was diagnosed with back in March. Seems like I will just be wearing my glasses and enjoying lots of kale with 1 cup of kale giving you 180% of vitamin A which aids with vision and immunity. The specialist said with my 20/20 vision in my glasses is fine and that I don’t need an operation – whew! If I was going to be a candidate for the procedure of corneal cross linking he would check my optometry history first. He checked my corneas and they were healthy and my eyes were dilated for quite a while after the appointment, so what else do you do when you are waiting around in the hospital except take selfies and knit.

Come the end of the week I found these two kitties hanging out on my bed in a position that I wanted to be as the last few weeks have been exhausting – it was an early night for me and it feels so good to be on a break now and having the opportunity to rest and relax.
