The Dye Gods and the Eye Gods

I had my first cataract surgery yesterday, and I must say that it was really quite civilized! It wasn't scheduled until 2:20 PM, so I was able to eat an early light breakfast, walk Barker, and fiddle with some fabric, before the procedure. Here are the two pieces that I am currently fiddling with:

This first one is a silk crepe scarf that now has two layers of dye on it. I'm thinking of adding one more, or perhaps some screen printing, but will wait a few days until it really speaks to me.

This is a silk/cotton blend piece of yardage. The hand of the fabric is extremely light and it has just the slightest bit of sheen of silk. It is truly yummy. I may not do anymore with this piece, of perhaps I'll add a bit of black.

As you can plainly see, circles are on my mind these days! Is it the eyes?????

I can already tell you that I'm seeing better than I've seen in years! I see the Opthalmologist later this morning, and then I'm on my own with a few daily drops for a while.

Life is Good!

I'm glad your surgery went well. Did you go with the crystal lens after all?

Great news! The dots and circles seem to be a recurring theme amongst my artsy friends.
