Hanging in There

I've done a tiny bit of sketching using the one eye that has had the surgery so far. It's really hard to use both eyes at the same time even if I put glasses on with one lens removed as my eyes and astigmatism are too different so I use one eye at a time. I was waiting for my grandson and thought I'd give drawing a tree in the distance (it was like the ones in the photo) with my new sight. I was pretty happy with the result and can't wait till I get the other eye (my better eye) done.

One more week and I should be seeing more like normal - yay! It's been the pits not being able to do details well in drawing and beadwork has come
to a standstill. I am more than ready.

Is there a tree for an EDM challenge???

The Eyes Have It?

Well, in this case the eyes don't! I had eye surgery on my left eye yesterday and thought I'd be okay to read and so on today but it's not to be. My new left eye vision doesn't go with my right eye in glasses so I'm dizzy and not focusing well. I get the other eye fixed in two weeks. Hopefully I won't be out of service that long but I am letting you know I won't be doing much in the way of artwork or blogging for at least a few days. The surgery I had was for cataracts and to put in a prescription lens so I can do away with glasses and contacts. Still hoping it's all worth it.
