The renovations have begun

I went to the dentist this morning to start my dental renovations. We made pretty good progress. Not quite as radical as I had thought, but that is good, because I was getting antsy at the end of the visit. I now have a full set of teeth for the first time in 11 years, even if some are plastic for now. I am not sore, it just feels wierd to have teeth where I didn't have teeth before.

I was pretty agitated yesterday and last night and today over my teeth. I tried to stitch, and I have to frog what I did. I finished my ornament. I am pretty pleased with it. The beading is maybe not my best, but the stitching is superb. Now to just finish it. I started that Prairie Grove Peddler freebie everyone has been posting, and that is what I have to frog. I will probably finish it as a pinkeep. My LNS showed it in a tuck pillow, but they sold out of those. I think a pinkeep would work well for it and it's a pretty easy thing to make. I'm just trying to get in some stitching time now, since the hurricane season is in full swing now--3 named storms in one week--and I have a sneaky suspicion work is going to take off and we'll be working extra.

Hey Rachel! Glad to be back reading your blog! =) VERY nice to hear that you're getting your dental procedures done! I know you're going to feel so much better when everything is 'over and done with' and you can scratch one more thing off your list of 'major things to do'. =) Keep us updated on your progress!! I'll say prayers for you that your mouth stays pain FREE through all this!

That's great! Are you done now? I bet they look really nice :o)

What freebie are you talking about? The 1776 one?

Not quite yet. I have a couple more visits. We do veneers and another crown prep on the 7th--drop-off day for the fair, as luck would have it. Then another visit to cement it all in.

Yep, that's the one. I have a couple extra copies if anyone wants one. Yes, they're legal.

Congrats on you new teeth; I'm so glad they aren't sore!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
