Getting Cool Glasses

I had my eyes examined today.  My optometrist's office called last week to reschedule Bob's appointment.  I had gotten a card to remind me to make an appointment.  I found out I hadn't seen him in three years.  I figure that was their fault since, they usually schedule an appointment and just send us a card.   I figure it was their fault since I didn't get a reminder before now...oh well...I wasn't having any problems.  And as it turns out, I'm not as near sighted as I was but, my astigmatism is a little worse.

I need a new pair of glasses.  I always complain that I do needlework often on very small weave fabric, you know 36-40 count linen and I sometimes have a hard time.  The other thing I need to do sometimes is take stitches out of people's hands (work related).  I need to get close up to be able to see this stuff and my bifocals just don't cut it.  He has a new solutions.  They are called Z:clips.  What they do is put two small magnets, one in each lens of the glasses.  One clip I'm getting are sunglasses the other is going to give my power to see at the 10" distance the distance I sometimes need to stitch at and be able to see the knot in a suture.  The other thing that this Z:clip will help with is computer work.  That sounds totally awesome to me.  I will let you know how they work out.

I finished Threadwork Primitives Kringles Crow.  It was very quick and turned out very cute.
 I have some finishing to do this weekend
I have to finish my little sheepies.  
I didn't stitch anything this year for my stitching group but, I did make gifts.  
 The beads were very fun and funky.  

 This one is green and bronze and a lot cooler in person.  
 Katy and I also spent the Saturday after Thanksgiving making cards.
It was fun to have some girls crafting time.  
Hope you have your Christmas shopping done.  
I think I am done with it.  
Don't know how much baking I'm going to do.  
None of us need it.  
I will do some but not much.  

Thanks for the great comments!
Hope to hear from you soon.
Have a wonderful, joyful weekend.
Keep on Stitching
