WIP update a year later

It's been over a year since I've worked on this BBDs piece. Since I permanently displaced my stitching glasses, I picked up this piece to work on. It's 28ct over two. I can manage stitching with my reading glasses and some Daylight helpers.
Two years ago I had laser surgery to correct my nearsightedness. Since then I haven't been able to stitch for long periods of time because my eyes get tired. So, waiting on a replacement pair of stitcher specs, I'm working on this piece. I hope to get my replacements soon because I have some exchange pieces to stitch.

Here's the threads and fabric I have ready to work with when I'm able. The fabric is Potato Lugana and the thread is Threadworx Cherry.

I finally got my computer back from the shop, minus the virus. I've had it since 2002. It still works for me, so I nurse it along. Needless to say, I make sure the virus protection is really working.
Have a good evening.

Very pretty so far! I'm just wondering if you found the Threadworx locally? I can relate with the eyes. Since working on the 18 ct.canvas with my new project, I don't have to use my magnifier, only my specs! That's really nice for a change.

gotta hate eye issues and stitching. I finally have a pair of glasses that I can stitch with and don't have to keep changing glasses. Sure does help.

Love your wip .. just pretty colors :)

Hope your specs come in soon! I am lost without my glasses!

Ah... I love the Loose Feathers designs... It's looking gorgeous!

Yikes! I've sworn I'd get laser surgery to correct my near-sightedness the moment enough money became free to do so, but after reading about your experiences, I think I'll ... just spend all that money on stash instead!

You've made nice progress and it's a very pretty WIP.

I've often thought about laser surgery but I really worry about the "side" effects...I'm glad to know about your results!

The colors are so delicate - so pretty!
