So, it's been longer than I intended...

and I honestly haven't done much since the weekend.

It's been kind of sucko.  Since Halloween, I've been to the dentist 3 times, had a filling repaired, had the height altered, then been told I just had to wait.

Um, yeah.  So the week of the filling at the wrong height triggered a crapload of TMJ/muscular issues.  I just got to the chiro 2 weeks later.  I will be icing for a while.  I went to a new dentist on Thurs, as I thought it was ridiculous that the first dentist never checked an Xray and hadn't gotten the height right on two fillings in a row.  (This time is was so far off, even the assistant commented on it.)

Can I just say that I HATE going to the dentist in Atlanta?  I love love love the office I went to growing up, so much so that I book my cleanings for when I'm visiting my parents.  I trusted him enough to repair a significant filling issue the week of my wedding....and I had forgotten I'd gotten a filling less than 24 hours after it had happened.  *ponders trying to import him*
I'm rather anxious about teeth and eyeballs...so this is making my anxiety issues flare.  So. not. helping.

So, I haven't gotten much sewing done since Sat.  Almost none in fact.  To be fair, I got a crapload of sewing done on Sat when I had a lovely day with Al from AThousandNeedles.

Update:  Saw new dentist on Thurs.  LOVED him.   Filling was *still* not at the right height, but he doesn't think I need a root canal.  I may have a sinus infection.
I have sewn bits of my Penny Sampler, but I still have to redo a block, do the diamond strip, and the two Dala horses.
Right now, my priorities are the Space quilt for a baby coming in a week or so, the Heal quilt, and the two postage stamp quilts.  If I can get those cleared off the deck, I'll have a lot of space cleared for other things....like finishing my Penny Sampler and some Christmas presents that need to be posted.
I *finally* have an Octo pillow case of my very own!  Lots of pictures, hopefully of finishes, coming soon.

  1. Ohmigosh, finding the right dentist is SO HARD. I finally found one I like, and he better never retire, is all I'm sayin'. UGH. I am so sorry for all the trouble your previous one caused, but glad you found a new one you love!!
    I want more info about that travel case re-do! And that St. Louis 16 patch is looking great!

  2. Oh my gosh!? Dentist problems are the worst! I am with you on consistent dentists though. I moved from my childhood state and now three years later and three dentists, I finally found one...now hoping he doesn't retire soon! Hope you get fixed up quick because I want to see more sewing :)
