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.
