Polka-Dot Girls Block 4


Thank-You
and
Summer Heart

The stitchery bug has bitten again!


Well trying to adjust to my new prescription glasses I think I backed out almost as many stitches as I put in.  I didn't tell the doctor that I had been using drugstore reading glasses with a slightly stronger len strength. I now have to hold things further away from me to see and I find it very awkward to stitch.  Well I am still having trouble focusing; I think it is slowly getting better.

After completing four stitchery blocks in a row, it was time for a little hand piecing and Dear Jane was calling me.  I think for the rest of the week I am going to work on something I have not worked on in a very long time. 

Until next time.....happy quilting!

Your stitchery is lovely! February my gratitude focus was @ vision. I have gone through periods of difficulty seeing and i want to always be grateful for being able to see. Hope your vision works itself out quickly!
Hand piecing can be most satisfactory & i look forward to seeing your work! B

Your stitcheries are gorgeous. I bought this pattern but never got around to stitching it. Might have to get it out again after seeing your inspiring work.

Beautiful stitches, Karen! My eyes are resting, they are so well done!!!

Lovely stitchery, does that summer belong to the Polka Dot Girls quilt? They are so beautiful both of them.
Hope your sight is without a trouble with your new glasses, you just have to get used to them. I use drugstore reading glasses with different lens strength depending what I'm doing, probably not very wise.

LOVELY blocks! I hate getting used to new lenses/glasses, and I hate that things have to change (sigh). I hate wearinbg my glasses but can't really see well enough to stitch with my contacts...maybe I need a cheap pair of drugstore glasses to wear with them!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

Oh, now you got my mind thinking about The Polka Dot Girls. I wanted to do those stitcheries but never purchased the patterns. I had forgotten all about the patterns. They are cute, cute.

Deb said...

Love those polka dot girls. I need to get working on mine, but I am trying to finish my "Over the River" first.

Karen said...

Hello Rose, I purchased The Polka-Dot Girls at: (treasuredthreadsonline.com) several years ago.

Beautiful blocks! It's really hard to get used to new glasses when you do hand work!! Hope it gets easier soon!

Mayleen said...

Very nice work! Focusing with new glasses is a challenge for me too and I hope it gets easier for you soon.
