WIP Wednesday

I've been working on a lot of things by hand these days because I'm often not at home or at a position where waiting is involved.  This is what happened this week:

I made some hexagons.

Some of them turned in to a flower center:

I embroidered some city stars for my secret Ohio quilt:

I made six more blue and white wonky baskets for the Block Lotto.
I'm excited that I got a "contact".  I went to the eye doctor.  I haven't been there since the episode of Bell's Palsy in February of 2016.  I was happy to hear that I still only needed to wear cheater glasses of +1.75.  The exciting part was that I asked about contacts.  She said that I could wear one contact in my left eye and that would work for me.  I LOVE it.  It was a challenge getting used to putting them in and out, but like anything with practice it gets better and better.

I wish I could say that my truck accident was because of my contacts.  No, I was backing down the driveway too fast, got a little off the driveway, got sucked into the mud, and cut it too short to get it up the hill without getting stuck.  Ouch.  Well, that's what insurance is for.  Should be fixed and back soon.  Bummer...

I had more fun this week making EPP hexagons.  This was on Sunday...

Then on Tuesday I had time to add a ring around the orange flower and make another half-opened flower.  These flowers bloomed:
These flowers bloomed onto a block!
