I started making the little hedgehog last night. I didn't have the right sized needles, so I had to order them and just got them yesterday.They are easy to do...so far. I love working on little projects like this. I want to use him for a pin cushion. Lots of little steps for a tiny little guy.He's only about 4 inches long.
My eyes have been hurting from the glare of the snow out the window and also when I am outside (I wear sunglasses outside) I find that they burn when I do handwork too. Last night I moved from my regular chair over to the couch, where I have an Ott craft lamp. This kind of light is just perfect for doing my knitting.I have macular degeneration and it's getting worse. It's the kind that you can't treat with laser surgery. I've been to a retina specialist and was given some ideas on how to get along with this disease. I've got special vitamins to take and I have changed my diet to decrease fats and increase fruits and veggies. My mother had it too...it runs in families. I don't suppose it's good to do these little projects or to use the computer, but these are the things I love and I will do them until I can't.Everything I love to do involves my eyes....reading, painting, knitting, crafting, bird watching and many other things.... I can't list them all. If I were to give them up...I would live a very boring life. So, I just do what the Dr. says and get along the best I can.
It snowed last night. I was supposed to go to a Christmas brunch at 10 this morning quite a distance away.I would have to be leaving right about now.The snow plows are just plowing us out...so I'm going to have to miss this one.It's an annual party given by some old friends. We always have a wonderful time and I look forward to seeing the beautifully decorated farm house.
Well, Joe asked, "When's breakfast?" Guess I will go and get things started.
Have a wonderful day today...Christmas is in the air...and so is the snow.
