Last week on Art With a Needle

The cataract surgery went beautifully and a few hours later I could already see a dramatic difference in the amount of light entering my left eye.  I was sitting at the table in front of a white plate on a dark green tablecloth.  When I looked through my untouched eye the plate was a lovely warm white; when I looked through the new eye it was brilliant blue/white, like the computer screen turned too bright.  Vision is still blurry but improving every day.

Here's my favorite daily miniature from this past week. Several days ago I found a stray slide on my work table and for some reason took the film out.  I did nothing useful with either bit, so both film and slide mount lurked about for a while.  Here's the film cut in two and made into a little packet, layered with a bit of yellow cardstock that was sitting on the work table.  How nice that I had yellow thread in the sewing machine already.  Serendipity is what this project is all about.


  1. Hurray! So glad the surgery went well.

  2. So glad to hear you are doing well! My second eye seems to have better long distance than the first.
    The colour difference really is surprising, isn’t it? I thought it was a bit like incandescent compared to LED lights.
    All the best for the next one. Hugs!
