Life is what happens when you make other plans....

A recent blurring of vision set off a flurry of doctor and specialists appointments.  Within days I was in surgery, designing quilts in my mind to keep me in a happy place far far away from the cold steel room.  Facing the real possibility of losing my eye helped put life things into perspective very quickly.  My family, friends, colleagues and quilting sisters have been so supportive. I'm very grateful for all your kind words and encouragement.  I still have at least two more procedures to get through and the prognosis is good.  It's just going to take time. This isn't how I envisioned my first blog post to go, but it is what it is.

Please take time to learn about the warning signs of retinal tears and detachment.  Take care of your eyes so we can all continue to Quilt On!

Look at the fun treasury the Quiltsy gals made in honor of my surgery.  It sure made me smile!


  1. Whim, I love your blog! It looks great! I really need to update mine. It's so neglected. So glad you're doing well. : )

  2. Congratulations on your blog...looks great. Glad to hear your eye is progressing positively.
