A little creativity

As you can see, I haven't kept up with my blogging - nor with my resolutions from last year.

But - I do have two new eyes! Cataracts removed & new "crystal lenses" implanted . "I can see clearly now. . . . " or at least I will be able to when the swelling goes down & my eyes learn to focus again!.

Here are a few things I have made in recent days - so maybe I'm back on track:
Felted flax paper made in a weaver's guild workshop

A freeform crocheted lampshade.
And another pair of socks - crocheted this time! I love them!

"I FEEL ABOUT FORTY . . . .. .

. . . . with something bad wrong with me." Rubimae Torrance on her seventieth birthday.

That's a quote by my mom - twenty seven plus years ago. And now I know exactly how she felt! See my daughters blog for some neat pictures of "the early years".

Birthday dinner at Lobster Shanty.
My kids gave me an early birthday present - spending a week end with me - just walking the beach, eating too much and reminiscing.
Beach walking and eating fish tacos at the Sandbar - and listening to live music.
Lots of fun! And a rare occasion - thanks kids!
