Next Gen

On the personal front, I had my six-month eye checkup this week and I have great news: I'm healed completely and seeing (almost) perfectly. The minor difficulties I've been having with reading and threading needles and doing other close-up work is due to my prescription changing -- also because of the healing process -- so in a week I'll have new glasses that should help.

Onto this week's short video: One thing I love about quilting is how it evolves with each new generation. Here's a short film about one young quiltmaker who has taken a very modern approach to quilting while still preserving the tradition of hand quilting (with music and narration by the artist, for those of you at work):

  1. I'm so glad you've been given the all clear. You must be delighted. I had a quick look at the video at work, but will need to check it out when I get home and can listen to what she has to say. I'm still very new at quilting and most of mine have been machine quilted, but I have a lesson booked in July on hand quilting and I'm looing forward to it even more now.

  2. Having suffered with poor eye sight (and the subsequent surgeries) all my life, I'm truly happy for you. I hope it continues to improve.

  3. Glad to hear the good news. :)

  4. That is great news!
