Mainly because I can't speak right now. Today was temporary crown day. Have I mentioned before that I love my dentist? It takes quite a bit to get me numbed up, especially with the fibro, and he has the patience of a saint. I never even felt the first shot - he uses a topical first - and as he worked, if I felt anything, he hit me with the shot again.
It was kind of funny - they had to go under the gum, so there was bleeding, and he put a piece of gauze in my mouth and told me to bite down. As soon as my teeth touched the gauze, I stopped biting - he said it was ok, it was just gauze, not his finger - to which I replied I had thought it was my tongue. Didn't really mind if it was his finger, lol. (And yes, I was just kidding.)
So tonight, I'm swollen from all the shots and my tooth hurts. He gave me a good prescription though, so I'm clock-watching 'til the next pill. I can't talk but I can type, so I've been busy reading blogs. And while I was getting my prescription filled, I picked up this....
I haven't bought a quilt magazine in so long, but my friend Wendy Sheppard from Ivory Spring has two quilts in here, and I want to make them both!
Excuse the pics, the magazine is sitting on my lap - I'm still cold from the nitrus and wrapped up in a quilt. Aren't those quilts lovely? You can see MUCH better pics and lots more over on Wendy's blog. She's really an amazing designer, and quilter - the results she gets on her domestic machine must be seen to be believed!
Like I said, I haven't bought a quilt magazine in years, but after what I went through this afternoon I decided I deserved a treat. There are days when I wonder what on earth we need teeth for. I'm sure I could eat chocolate cake without them.
Now I'm going to go watch Everyone Loves Raymond and dream over my quilt magazine...have a good night everyone!
