Big Honkin' Band the First
The first big honkin' band is done.
It was not without travail. I had to resort to a sharp needle to do the satin stitch for decent coverage. There is no DNA left on the sampler, but I did leave some on other surfaces during this process.
Alas, there will be no stitching tonight--or anything else that involves close attention to visual detail. My annual eye appointment was today. My pupils are still dilated and the world is slightly fuzzy. About all I can do is blankly stare at the TV across the room (and I'm not so sure I'm typing anything that makes sense).
Is it a sign of true obsession that while I sat in the chair waiting for my eyes to dilate I tried to figure out the best way to handle the reversible cross on the small dividing band that comes next? And is it a little sad that I'm a little sad that I can't see if what I figured out will really work? And should I be concerned that I might forget what I figured out by the time I can see again, due to my rapidly advancing age?
I had to hand over my Medicare card and I'm still feeling the sting of having one.
