Once again I have succumbed to an eye infection. I seem to go three or four weeks with it clear and then it starts to itch and become infected with blepheritis again. In class yesterday it was irritating me so much I happened to mention that I would like to be able to cover it so I would resist the temptation to rub it. I joked that I should get an eye patch... and someone who shall remain nameless (but you know who you are!) suggested I make one... with an eye on it... and so the gauntlet was thrown.
While the rest of the class got to grips with cable stitch on their machines by making landscape pictures, I used cable stitch to embroider an eye patch.
What do you think to my new look? No, I'm not keen either so I'm back to the doctor this afternoon for more ointment.
