Florence from Melly & Me

Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts, I feeling pretty good today - must be all the chocolate I have eaten today.
I managed to get Florence finished yesterday...totally frustrated...I can't wear my glasses so I worked under a magnifying lamp. Just love her shorts they're so cool. 
We're off to spend the afternoon with the in-laws so enjoy your Easter everyone and make it wonderful.

Hit by a bus

Well, that's what it feels like! I have a small sunspot removed from under my eye and another removed from from my forehead.

 2 hours after surgery...not feeling to bad

Look like death in this photo
8 hours later, my eye is starting to swell and showing signs of bruising

Next morning I feel I have been hit by a bus, couldn't open my eye...bugger I was hoping to get a bit of stitching in over Easter. The plastic surgeon reckons I will feel even worse on Sunday, next week I'll find out the results of tests. 

All this because of a sunspot the size of a seasame seed.
