  • Best wishes Jan for your operation

    Our forum friend Jan - croc cutter extraordinaire, intarsia specialist, retired nurse, aviator, fast car driver, flautist, lover of her husband John's jazz music, my travel guide to Italy, the creator and driving force behind Facebook's Intarsia Nut's group and generally adorable little old lady (to her friends, that is!) - is off to have one of her eyes blasted with laser surgery today.

    Best wishes Jan. Looking forward to hearing about your recovery and just how much hell you gave the medical professionals who treated you.

    I'm not sure why the saying 'Out of sight, out of mind' just surfaced from my grey matter whilst penning this post but rest assured that despite you being temporarily out of sight you will be in the mind of your forum buddies.

    Ciao amica e buona fortuna!

          Well, I'm off to the surgical center. A few months ago I noticed that the vision had gotten very blurry in one eye so I got it checked. Sure enough, a cataract had grown rapidly and was causing the problem. Today is the day the cataract will be removed and replaced with a corrective lens. Truth is, I'm excited about it and very happy the blurring will be gone. The rest of the truth is, it's not easy being on "the other side of the bed" after all the years of being the nurse instead of the patient.

          Thanks for the good wishes. I'm sure all will be well.

          to Jim: Grazie mille, amico.

                  Jan the best of luck on your surgery, you will be amazed at the positive results. Three years ago I had both eyes done and my vision was restored to 20/20. My glasses lense was as thick as the bottom of the old type coke bottles. I do not use any type of glasses anymore and the doctor says my vision will never change. I am indeed a happy 80 year old.

                      Thanks all. I'm back home, feeling fine except for the uncomfortable sensation of having a scratched eyeball. Thanks for all the concern and good thoughts. I can't wait for the blurry vision from too many eye drops and pupil dilatation to subside.

And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...

                                I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

                                I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

                                But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

                                +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

                                It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
