The day before Dale left for London I emailed for an order. I needed another reel of red Madeira FS Jewel, one of my favourite embroidery threads. I couldn't possibly ask for just one small reel of thread to be sent from Perth to Mackay could I? Sooooooooo...
These tine sequins don't show up very well here, but they are gorgeous, and
this big bundle of yarns has some really yummy colours and textures in it.
I can't wait to use these gorgeous mohair yarns on the embellisher, they will work beautifully.
And then I needed some different coloured yarns, so this bundle came as well.
And last but not least these two bottles of shimmering mists. I will have lots to inspire me over the next few weeks!
I had a visit to the optometrist yesterday, with good and bad news. My vision has improved a line in my left eye since I was last tested 6 months ago, and the leakage seems to have stopped, which means the injections have worked in that eye, yippee. Unfortunately he thinks I now have the start of a hemorrage (can't spell it) in my right eye so shall probably need injections in that eye next.......aaargh! I go back to the eye specialist next Tuesday for a scan of my eyes, no doubt will then need more testing before possibly another three injections - a never ending merry-go-round. I guess I am lucky they can do something for macular degeneration these days so I shouldn't complain. Can't bear the thought of going blind.
On a much more cheerful note, we are loving having the grand kids nearby. Nikki was going out to so some shopping yesterday, when Hamish (not quite three) said Granny and Grandpa. No, said Nikki, we are going shopping. NO, said Hamish, Granny and Grandpa - so, of course we had a visit!! He was happy to go shopping after that.
Time for bed, more soon.
