It only took a second for me to do this to the new spectacles. Skewhiff the frames, remove the paint from the left hand edge (that's embedded just under my eye) and thoroughly scratch the fancy and expensive German lenses.
I took a tumble last night while on my daily walk. Despite falling elegantly, I destroyed my new glasses, broke a tooth and badly grazed my face, both knees and both hands. Today has been spent at the doctors and at X-ray and no stitching, or walking for that matter, for a while. It's even hard to talk and see through the swelling. My fifth metacarpal on the right hand didn't stand up to the fall too well. So more reading than stitching methinks.
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
