I just thought I'd give an update on my eye surgery happy dance. So far the pressure is staying within normal range without any eye drops. That to me is the most important. That means I may not lose any more vision than I already have. The other big news is that I now have 20/20 vision without glasses. I can actually watch the TV without any glasses. I am officially considered farsighted now. It feels really strange to not wear glasses all the time but I suppose I can get used to it. I do wear them for reading and close work (ever tried to file a nail when you can't see it?). I have knit some and can do that without glasses but I haven't tried to cross stitch yet. So I'm still happy dancing all over my house and this time I'm not tripping over the furniture any more!

The holidays are right around the corner and gift exchanges are happening everywhere you look. If an amazingly magical Stitchmas Santa were to fly overhead and bring you one stitching wish, what would it be?
Oh my, this is a very interesting question. When I want something specific for Christmas, I usually just use a catalog and give it to David and he gets me whatever is marked. I have floor frames and lap frames and q-snaps galore. I have all kinds of fabric and threads. In fact, I have enough stash to last several lifetimes. I could give my stock answer of peace on earth but I don't think Santa can handle that. So I thought and I thought of what I really wanted from Santa Claus. Then I realized exactly what I wanted. I want the gift of time. See, as far as I'm concerned there are never enough hours in the day. I allocate some of it for stitching and something always seems to get in the way. Before I know it, my stitching time is gone and I haven't even picked up a needle. Or I get working on another hobby and I never do get around to stitching. If you look at my list of finished projects for 2012, you'll find there's one project listed. One sad, lonely pathetic little project. So Santa Claus, can you bring me some more time? Please? I've been a very good girl this year.
