Why I hate the Dentist!
I had hoped to get so much sewing/quilting done today. I ended up having to go to the dentist after my crown fell out. Looks like I'll be needing an implant instead. He removed the remaining root that just happened to crack in half. So instead of sewing, I've been sitting on the couch holding ice to my jaw. I have been knitting so decided I would share the picture. It's a scarf called Maedwe from the book, Free-Spirit Shawls by Lisa Shroyer. I love the little ruffle running down the left side. I'm just using some sock yarn I had in my stash. It's a fun knit and easy to do while your mouth throbs!
I had to take this picture with lighting running against the quilt to show you the quilting. I had done some McTavishing when Amy of Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventures featured tutorials on this technique. I decided to use it for the background of my Dresden Plate. I've only done one block so far but I love it! It's not perfect but since the thread matches so well, it's fine! It's a great way to practice and get my quilt done! I was hoping to complete another block today but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. Darn tooth!
I'm also hoping to make more progress on my Tone It Down quilt. I'm working on the sashing. I plan to have pictures soon. Hopefully, my mouth will be better tomorrow.
