It was such a success and I am looking forward to doing the left eye. Cheryl, my Daughter-in-law took me to Nephi for the 1st surgery. I was supposed to be there at 8 am but at 7:15 they called to say the surgery was cancelled. Something about trouble with some equipment. So I called Cheryl, who had just gotten to Holden, and she turned around and went home. Well I no sooner sat down and ate breakfast and they called back to say it was on again. I told them I didn't want their faulty equipment to mess up my eye but they reassured me that it was the sterilization equipment not the eye equipment. So I called Cheryl back and she came to get me. We got to Nephi about 8:45 but there is so much prep to get ready. Surgery actually happened about 10:30 or 11 am. It only took a few minutes for the actual surgery. But we had to wait to see Dr. Lohner before we left the hospital. I guess we finally got home about 1pm. My sight in my right eye is so good it just amazes me with what they can do. For the left eye I am going to go to Provo on the 13th of July. Marshawn is coming to take me to that one and we will stay at a motel up there since my appointment is at 7:20 am.
Just before my eye surgery I had an opportunity to go to the Panguitch Quilt Walk Festival. Last year I went for 4 days but this year I only went for 2 days. I left early Friday morning and came home Saturday late afternoon. I took a class on Friday afternoon with a Krisanne Watkins. She taught us how to make 40 1" half square triangles. Very tedious but between that Friday class and one Saturday morning with the same teacher I was finally able to accomplish one block.
I love it but it was very tedious. Then Saturday afternoon I took another class. It was from a lady at the Main Street Quilt shop in Hurricane. I really like their classes. It was called A Scrappy Granny Square . I was actually able to make 2 blocks in that class and for sure I will finish this quilt.
I actually did two different color placements in this block. I love the process and the ease of making it. I still need to square them up but really like this block.
