I can't believe I'm sharing this

 I can't believe I'm sharing this.  Last week I had some teeth pulled and bone grafted.  I cannot have any temporary teeth until the graft is safe, another 1-2 weeks. I HAVE TO GO AROUND IN PUBLIC LIKE THIS FOR 3 WEEKS!!!!  I try not to smile at people and  I talk with my lips covering my teeth, but can only maintain that for about 4 1/2 minutes. So I get a lot of funny looks and spend a lot of time explaining my dental woes. It is painful to eat so I dropped another couple of pounds (not a bad thing). This time next year I should have a mouthful of beautiful teeth.

 In the meantime I am finishing a lot of quilts.  This cute bear is my souvenir from Alaska. Great fun to make and awesome to look at.

This is the Christmas quilt I finished last year but didn't get back from the quilter until January, so I didn't bind it until yesterday.

This is one of the quilts I sold to pay for my Ipad.
This is another one I sold to pay for my Ipad.
By the way.  I LOVE MY IPAD!
Also, I won another ribbon with my "In the beginning" quilt. I've entered it in 3 shows and came home with 3 ribbons. Nice....

.So I need to hide in my basement and finish a bunch of quilts.  I have 12 waiting to be quilted.


  1. Your quilts are beautiful and your teeth story is funny!

  2. I totally love that you shared a picture! That must feel so weird!

    Your quilts are stunning!!! You are amazing.

  3. Well, your hair is really cute, at least.

  4. I feel your pain! I have the world's most horrible teeth and I am a dentist's most desired patient. I have an appointment this week with a new dentist and I am dreading it more than I can express. Hang in there, my toothless Mother in law. You can do it! Maybe you can make up a cool story like someone was trying to mug you, but you used your Kung Fu and fought like a champion sending the offender to the ER!

    P.S. I LOVE your quilts! I cannot believe one person could have so much talent! It makes me sick! JK. I love ya!
