I promised Anne a Saturday SAL but didn't quite make it. Ended up going to get our eyes checked which threw our whole day out of whack. Nothing the matter, just routine, but a 12:30 appointment didn't get us seen till 1:15. Coupled with dilation, getting new glasses, yada yada, we didn't get out of there till almost 4... and had our first meal of the day. :S
The optometrist said that I was an "interesting" case. ROFL!!! We all know that the "interesting" word used that way is never good thing. ;) My prescription is so low and though all that needed correcting was my astigmatism, I'm straining my eyes when I'm reading and on the computer. I told the doc, I only ever use my current (15 year old pair) for stitching and watching movies.
After it was all said and done, I walked away with two new pairs of glasses on order: one for stitching, and the other for distance. (It was buy 1, get 1 free, and hubby didn't need new glasses. YAY for me!!!) The stitching pair are soooooooo light, they feel like air. The movie pair has flowers on the side. *giggle*
By the time we got home from lunner (new made up word for lunch and dinner), groceries, and chores, we were both sporting headaches from the dilation and sun. Needless to say, I wasn't about to stitch under those occasion, especially not over 1.
So, Sunday was my 'SAL with Annie' day. I even told hubby 'no' to D3. *gasp* I KNOW!!!! I couldn't finish the yellow butterfly like I wanted, but there's not much left. Maybe another 3 or 4 colors and then backstitching. (Pic is bad. Sorry about that... cloudy today.)
