Well, the eyes did take me as long as I thought they would. All day Wednesday in fact. Well, part of that was due to the fact that I had to take out about 90% of the left eye, I hate it when I make a stupid counting mistake. Here it is all fixed and done:
Yay, no more of the black filament, which doesn't look as cool as the silver, but oh well, I am not undoing it again.
So I started to work on the top curls, but I guess my body decided it hadn't been sick for a while and Thursday was the perfect day. So, I didn't get much stitching done, and I think I slept for about 3/4 of the day. So now it's Friday, I'm still feeling a little weak from my illness, but it doesn't take too much energy to stitch, right? At least this picture isn't as crooked.

I'm going to have to take a break until Monday on Anthera. My grandfather is going to be in town so I'll be spending a bit of time at my parents' place visiting, and I can't very well work on my mother's gift while she's in the same room.
