What a Week!

I have had an eventful week!

On Monday, I went into Grand Rapids (1 hour away) for a recheck on my root canal. He packed it with temporary "stuff" (I think that's the technical name for it) and sent me back to my dentist, warning that the tooth should have a crown within 30 days because it has a crack.

Tuesday, I went to the GYN. Enough said about that.

Wednesday, I went to the dentist. First thing he does is take out the temporary stuff and fill it with an amalgam (silver) filling. When he realized he couldn't get the crown on within 30 days, he called a dentist in town (30 minutes away), and got me an appointment for 7:15 the next morning. I'm retired. I don't get up that early! But I did.

So Thursday I went to the specialist. First thing he does is remove the amalgam! Fits me for a temporary crown, sends me home. During dinner, the crown pops out!

Friday I get to go back and get it glued back in.

Five days this week of doctors!!!


Celtic Solstice has graduated!! It is now a flimsy! (Cue the Pomp and Circumstance music, please.)

 Last night I had to make an emergency trip to Joann's to get enough of the neutral for the first border. I had some, but they were way too light.

The green I had in my stash. Boy, the borders make a huge difference in the quilt, don't they?
The first pic was taken during the day, I wonder if that's why the blues stand out more, or if the change is because of the green border. Have to check tomorrow.

yes enough of the dentist huh! I hate getting a crown and then when it pops off and you have to go back it makes it very irritating

It's amazing what borders can do to a quilt!
