Day Three

A matchbox for Mim. She has promised not to look so I can show pics.

 
The panda is so cute he might make you gag, but he seems to like the red polka dot fabric he is appliqued to.

 
Underneath is a worm who has his eye on an apple.

 
I'm struggling a bit today. I picked up my new glasses and thought my headache would disappear, but instead it got worse. My new glasses feel very different and I think I might need some more time to get used to them. There is a much narrower field of vision, because the lenses are smaller than my last pair. Maybe one day, eighties style frames a la Tootsie might come back, and make graduated lens glasses more comfortable for all the old, blind, crabby people like me!

I'm so sorry for your headache, Sam! (I know what you mean about the smaller field of vision: I chose new glasses with smaller lenses--they're more stylish than my old ones, but I have to move my head around more to focus on the right thing in the right way.) In any case, I really hope you feel better soon.
