Giveaway Frenzy!

I am SO bad! I should be getting the house cleaned up and some laundry done, but what have I been up to? Hanging out on the computer entering one giveaway after another. If you didn't know about it, head over to Sew Mama Sew and check out the fabulous giveaways (but hurry they end this weekend!)

I did manage to sew my panache coins together for the stacked coins, non-traditional baby quilt. I ordered some Kona Cotton in Ochre to do the sashing. I just hope the color is what I think it is. I seriously need a color card (hmmmm - thinking about mentioning it to the pugs as a suggestion for their oh so nice mommy for Christmas *grin*).

Tomorrow, is a trip to the eye doctor for a check up and I'm sure some new glasses. My eyesight is very, very bad (can't see near or far). I've worn glasses since kindergarten and in recent years have had trouble with the nosepads hurting my nose because my lenses were very heavy. Two years ago the doctor suggested Swissflex 2.5 Eyephorics by Italee. I'm telling you they are the best glasses ever! They weigh 2.5 grams and with high index plastic lenses that are nice and thin (and expensive) they are the most comfortable things ever - I forget that I have them on. You can customize them with a variety of colors - these have light blue for the nose and purple for the temples. I even got the clip on sunglasses, after all, I live in the Sunshine State and can't live down here without them. I think I'm going to go with an icy mint green for the nose and navy for the temples this time and a different shape lens too.


  1. I love your coins, I think that is my favorite pattern ever! Listen, housework will still be there tomorrow but the give-away might be over - I think you have your priorities straight!

    Glasses- ugh. I've worn them since I was seven and now need bifocals. I ordered my glasses [2 pair] online this last time and I LOVE them! Got the frameless bifocals for less than $25, and regular far vision for about $12. Lightweight, memory titanium. Never thought they could get it right but at those prices why not try, right? I'll be going back to shop there! I got the clip-on sunglasses too, not that I need them around here....grey, grey, grey. And um, SNOW coming. Soak up some sun for me, please?

  2. Thank you for sharing your insights. I actually lost my prescription clear glasses, while working at a recent charity fundraiser. As they have not turned up I made an appointment to get a new prescription, which I went into for today. So now I can order new glasses.

    I love the look of these glasses and appreciate your recommendation. I'll definitely place an order. Thank you!
