Sharon ..........so we are in the same boat, I have a cataract I am waiting to have removed from my left eye which will leave me with GREAT vision there, the right eye is next as they would be too unbalanced if onoly one was fixed. I can't see squat right now and my typos are getting silly (I usually find them and fix them, but some have been hilarious)
I am finishing a bead embrodered bracelet........it's taking me eons. I bought some size 10 delicas for the main background, edging done in 11/o delicas but around the flower itself that is on the bracelet, I wanted just a bit of green, so I outlined the cab that is in the center with Toho yellow/green 15/o and now I need to build up a row or two of peyote to double secure the cab...................cannot believe it is taking me DAYS to do this as I just can't work "one eyed" for long. My good eye takes over and then gets eyestrain.......just cannot wait for the surgery so I can bead like a maniac again. Donna
I did a Google image search, and I found a book of beaded dress patterns on Etsy.
Hope this helps,
