getting to the root of the matter.
Several years ago, I decided to take a quilting class. I loved every minute of it.
Above is only one of two quilt tops I've ever made. This is my favorite of the entire two.
It does, of course, need to be finished. I pulled it out of my closet last week and fell in love all over again with the French Country feel of the fabrics. The colors are incredibly amazing. Please overlook the errant threads and the fact that I didn't press this quilt prior to taking photos. I figured you'd forgive me for the wrinkles. On the quilt, not my face. Someday, I'll finish this lovely quilt!
In other news, my sewing room is still half cleaned. Half put-back-together. My plan for today, cleaning the destruction I created last week, was thwarted by an aching tooth. My tooth has been hurting for awhile and just this past Saturday morning, I finally called the dentist to make an appointment. In my vast dental experience, I self-diagnosed a probable cavity, or loose filling.
Ha. I was wrong on both counts. My appointment was this morning and upon several x-rays and examination, the ever-charming and competent Dr. Martinez told me the pain I had been experiencing in my molar was due to a problem with my wisdom tooth and that it would, in fact, need to be extracted. In his usual jovial fashion, he assured me that he could pull the wisdom tooth, which had a crazy twisted root, right there in his office and that I wouldn't need to go to a specialist. "No problem...what's the worst that could happen?" he asked. At which point I burst out laughing (I know, that really wasn't very reassuring), he laughed, the nurse laughed and then we all got down to business. Within 2.38 minutes, the root popped and the tooth was soundly nestled within the dentist tongs.
A little gauze, my instruction sheet and pain prescription (I have not take any!) and I was on my way. I've done some laundry and ironing, but am now ready to go nestle into the couch and read on my Kindle. Love my Kindle.
Hence, the whole reason I'm a lazy girl today. Not even an interesting blog post.
Check back for a giveaway sometime this week. Think "gift card."
Something that's fun and you can get yourself a little something...from me to you.
Now if you'll excuse me, Jane Eyre is calling...
It's time to rest my gums.
