    It's the middle of my work day and I came on Gatherings thinking I'd catch up a little on the discussions as a quick break.  It's postings like this that get me in trouble!  Thank you thank you.  I enjoyed the site. I am forcing myself to book mark it for later because  I've spent about a half hour wandering through all the artists and the links to their sites.  what a great creative tangent! So the creative side of me thanks you loads.  Now I've got to be disciplined and go back to my paying job.

    Note to self:  no more gatherings stops during the day.  You don't know how to quit!

      I know - if I just spent half the time sewing as I spend reading on the computer about sewing - here, as well as on some of the great blogs - I would be a fantastic, productive seamstress.

        You had to be talking about me.  I'm so rusty I'm afraid to start.  Today is my last post-op for catarract  surgery, then two weeks for new glasses and I'm going to make a New Years resolution on April l---Get With It!  Especially now that someone has helped me out with how to do muslins and eased my fear.  The ladies on this forum are something special.  I think I'm being brought back to life!  The surgery is over, my new farm manager is in place, my old farm manager has survived a devastating illness and my girls cleaned my house for me and my little son is doing really well after years of therapy.  I don't have an excuse now!  Wish I could thank all of you at one time.

          You have had a lot going on, haven't you. I'm so glad things are finally looking better for you now, and surely understand you wanting to celebrate that with doing the things you haven't been able to. Good luck with the cataract surgery, we'll be waiting to hear how it went, and what new projects you're working on.

          Our prayers are with you my sister!

          My FIL just had both eyes done this winter for cataracts! Everything went so well, and he was sooooo pleased. He was up and at em right away afterwards. He and my husband have been out and splitting wood all week, enjoying the sunshine. At 83, he is looking forward to the spring planting, spring fever has hit big time! He can't believe how much better he sees. Good luck with your surgery, I am sure you will be so pleased also, and glad you did it too. Cathy

            Thank you.  Everyone told me it would be like your FIL"s experience but it has not been for me.  I had good care during surgery.  My right eye was done and the left a month later plus laser on the right.  It has been two weeks since the second surgery and I'm still struggling with both eyes and waiting now for my second pair of glasses.  Reading is impossible, sewing the same and using the computer is a struggle.  I hope new glasses will take care of it.  Unfortunately they just keep charging me.  The plus is my blonde hair is really white and my walls are a much lighter color. I've really never been a complainer untill now.  Maybe I will be able to get a good pair of glasses.  Thanks again for the encouragement as I have needed it.  I want to start some projects!  My little son wants his cheerful Mom back!

            Oh dear! I hope the healing inflammation passes soon! I have heard that some people take longer to heal than others. I am glad that things have gotten brighter for you though. I hope the new glasses help a lot. Here is a big hug to help you through it ((())) Just know there are people out there who really do care. Cathy

          3. Cityoflostsouls | | #15

            Thanks Kathy you're a lovely person.  I'm sure new glasses will fix me right up!

            First, you are not complaining!  This has got to be one of the most frightenig and frustrating things you will go through in your life.  You are sharing your feelings with us and that takes a certain amount of courage I think.  My heart and prayers go out to you that your vision improve soon and you have very good results.  May God bless you and heal you!  Mary

    Wish I had a place to wear things like this!

    1. Josefly | | #10

      I know it; me, too, Sue. I usually think it would be a waste of time and money for me to make such things for myself. But you know, I admire women who "dress up" even for every-day kinds of things in our so-casual world - I tend to wear jeans or slacks and knitted shirts. But if I had some clothes like these, I'd find some place to wear them, just to have the pleasure of wearing them! Even casual, sporty clothes can be elegant and delicious. And don't we deserve to look elegant and delicious? (I'm really preaching to myself, here.)

    Kudos!  This was fabulous.  I could spend the whole day looking, being inspired and just simply enjoying the creativity on display. Z
