Oh, my bifocal contacts are failing me with this tiny needle! I had to get Lucas to thread it for me (took him a few minutes, so I didn't feel so bad), then Dean offered to loan me his readers, and it was a REVELATION! Look at those thread fibers! Look at that gigantic needle eye! (Look at that gallon of wine!)
But I refuse to rely on them the entire time, only for threading the needle. If I keep them on longer than that, I feel cross-eyed for the next 10 minutes. Plus, my optometrist said your eyes are like muscles: if you don't make them work a little bit, they'll get weaker. This is when I was begging him for stronger contacts because I couldn't see, but what do I know?! (Disclaimer: this is my "funny concentrating" face, which Lucas said was "awkward," and he asked me to smile nicely for the picture, but when have I ever been about smiling nicely?)
And I forgot to mention that I just finished the first bag of Alabama Chanin beads - 2,040 beads to be exact - thank ya very much!
