I have the largest stye under my left eyelid (eye on right in this image). You can see how swollen my eyelid is. I went to the eye doctor's Monday to confirm that it was indeed a stye. I've had it for over a week now and my lid only seems to be getting bigger! I was told to put warm compresses on it for 5 minutes at a time, at least six times/day... and maybe in a week it will be gone! :-(
To add to this fetching look, I have misplaced my regular glasses and can only find this pair that I use when painting. They are really a mess, since I never bother to clean the paint, plaster, foil, sizing, etc. off of the rims. So not only do I have one ugly looking, blurry eye, these paint splattered glasses just add to the whole fetching look.
It really does feel better when I stop and apply a compress for a few minutes. You can see the stencils I am foiling on that border in the background. Btw, it took four coats of Linen White to cover the side borders of copper foil, but who's counting.
Today I was able to get all of the border flowers foiled, but was too obsessed about my eye and forgot to take pics. Next, I will add the Swaroski gems, and hopefully finish all the glazing of the remaining walls. Then... maybe I can have Friday off! I have to work Saturday, so I'm hoping all goes well and I can have an easy day on Friday.
