Lupus Update about two weeks ago, I started having some eye trouble. I woke up and put on my glasses, but still couldn't see right. I had the sensation that I had one contact in and one out. My right eye didn't want to come into focus, as if there was sleep covering my eye that wouldn't rub away. It also affected my color sense, the warm colors all seemed to be cool. It improved within ten minutes, but the color thing lasted all day. The next day was better, but it's continued to bug me off and on. My right eye just isn't focusing all the time. And it comes with a headache around my right eye. Anyway, Twilight and I researched this and found that it's pretty common with people who have Sjogren's Syndrome. And it's treated with eyedrops, so I'll mention it when I see my Rhuemy in two weeks. But, bleh!! Another medication to pay for! Did I miss the National Feel Sorry for Yourself Day?? I really meant to take advantage of that this year!! LOL

A close up view. It turned out to be a pretty well padded and heavy rug. I knew while I was putting it together that she'd be sharing it with her cat Prana, and I was right. I'm hoping she'll take a picture of the two together!! My goal was to support and encourage Twilight in her mediation/yoga pursuits on the path to over-all well being. We refer to it as "woo-woo". It's become one of our favorite words because it can be used as a verb, or noun, or adjective!!!
The backing is a heavy duty upholstery material.

The other new yarn is Panda Silk from Cyrstal Palace Yarns, and oh my!! I love it's color, it's incredible sheen, and wonderful softness. I used this for the Mother's Day socks, and you can tell by holding the sock that the drape of this yarn is awesome!! I can't wait to buy more to try another lace scarf.

Even though I've already put in two months of planning, I have yet to begin because of it's overwhelming emotional content. So I took a little side line break to make something that's just pretty and fun. After I got the back ground made, it just called for a fairy.
I used new needle methods that I hadn't tried. I did most of the fairy with a single fine felting needle. I have a bag of novelty yarns that I never use, but have just in case. So I broke out some of that to play with.
