Finally getting back to my wire, it's been awhile. I'm having fun playing --I have stones all over my bench again. It's been a long haul since eye surgery, but the eyes are finally settling down (knock on wood), cooperating, and allowing me to enjoy working with my wire and stones a bit more. Hooray!! I'm slower than I once was, but who cares!! I GET TO CREATE AGAIN!!! Something I feared might not be possible a year ago.
