My mom has streaking in her left eye. She went to the opthamologist Thursday and fortunately it is treatable.

The streaks are blood clots in her retina. So, she had a shot of avastin into the eye. Squick moment.

Her follow up is in two weeks. Now, I just have to get her to set up her annual physical.

Hmm, will be tricky. 1-1/4 and ~1 yd pieces, but 58" wide. Thinking cross grain to take advantage of the lovely selvage edge.

I'm developing ideas for the Confectionery Contingent group. So, I'm looking for: 1) floofy, 2) look good. Color recommendations would be appreciated. And any guesses as the other side. FYI, this is probably Plan B, I'm working up the nerve for Plan A. You can guess as to Plan A.
