PPF Retina yikes

Hi Everyone!

Well what a week. I had an eye doctor apt. on July 24th. He is a new ophthalmologist to me, my regular doctor retired, or quit he was pretty young. Anyway, the exam goes well, got new prescription for glasses and that was that. EXCEPT on August 2 I woke up with a floater in a complete circle and seeing sparks. The doc gets me in on Tuesday and this ring floater is called a weiss floater and is pulling on my retina, thus seeing sparks. He said the retina is fine right now and to rest my eye. Uhhhh and how is that done? I have sun glasses on as I write. It helps a lot. Staying off the PC as much as possible, and wearing a patch. In a few weeks if it is not better or if it is worse I need to phone him for surgery. Ohhhh hell NO. I would rather go to the dentist that the eye doctor. So that is life for me right now. I did get some art done before the doctor.
However, before I show you that. I want to tell all of my international friends about a new beading site that is open in the Netherlands. She carries my Nicole's BeadBacking too so for all of you closer to the Netherlands than the US you can now order from Yvonne at

So here are the drawings I did this week

I am not finished with her hair but it will have to wait until my eye gets better.  

 And this one

Linking with Paint Party Friday,
