Redwork Block 5

Redwork Block 5
Originally uploaded by stitchin.thyme
I finished up another block for my redwork quilt this morning. Something curious happened while I was stitching this block. I was having a difficult time getting my back stitch to look right and I kept making excuses, saying I was tired or rushed or whatever I could come up with. But the real reason is - I believe I need glasses. It is about time, I will be 40 in a couple months and these babies have done me good for a long time. I had a pair of reading glasses I had purchased at the drug store and they helped me out a lot. It willl take some time for me to get use to them though. I have always had a hard time wearing sunglasses, if I wear them too long they make me feel nauseated, I think it has something to do with them sitting on my nose, I tend to try to look at the glasses or something. Also, when I take the "readers" off to look at something else, eveything is blurry, I have to shut my eyes to readjust. Weird stuff this glasses wearing is. Amazing though how clear it was looking at my stitching. I very much enjoyed it. Lets all sing "I can see clearly now....." Okay maybe I should just go to bed, I feel the silly's coming on. Goodnight or Goodday!!

Cute block Jennifer. I can't believe how much stitching you get done. And you might as well make that eye appointment. Strange things happen to your body when you turn 40!!!!! Come on over to the dark side and join the old people group!!

Thank you Sharon and I have arrived I believe to the dark side. Do I get a fancy hat or cape or light saber, something?
