A mystery, my new pants, the lizard and misc.
I saw this pair of capri pants on the internet and I thought they might go well with the lace jacket for granddaughter's wedding. So I ordered them and decided to order one size larger because it is much easier to take things in a bit than to let them out.
I liked the look of the tapered leg and it was supposed to be a stretch fabric which would be comfortable and I loved the color and they had pockets.
Well they came and here is what was in the package. I still love the color, they are well made, and the fabric is lovely.. But obviously taking them in a bit is not an option and I would have to be six feet tall for them to be "capri." I am going to take them completely apart and see if I can make them fit.
I finished the pet lizard button for Ella's granddaughter. It was a challenge. His name is Bask!
It has been months since I updated the eye situation. The most important update is I have a new doctor. The pain from the side effects of the treatments was almost intolerable and I knew I needed to find help ....but changing doctors is not that easy at this age.
First there are not all that many retina specialists around here and the good ones aren't taking new patients and the ones taking new patients may or may not accept your insurance. But my opthamologist used her personal influence to get me in with the retina doctor of my choice and all that pain is behind me now.
I had high hopes for a while the retinal occlusion (blood clot) would dissipate and sight in the right eye would improve but instead it has worsened and although I have some sight in that eye the occlusion makes it look like everything has gone through a shredder.
Remember the soutache jewelry from the other day... Well I have a huge hug and thank you for Jocelyne Ausseil who found this fantastic tuto...
