2 finishes for the week

Thank you for your nice comments last week!  I appreciate them.

Another not-so-easy week. On top of everything else that's been going on, I have a back tooth with a big silver filling that has been slowly crumbling since I was pregnant. I didn't go to the dentist (too busy) and it bit me in the booty on Tuesday. I bit into a cookie and the tooth shattered.  So I had it extracted on Thursday. The tooth was in really bad shape, but my oral surgeon is excellent and it was not bad. Although I do wonder why they are so quick to hand out hydrocodone to people. I don't like taking pills, and I especially don't like those heavy narcotics. If they'd asked, I would have just asked for Motrin 800mg, but they never do . . . Just a wierd thing.

I got a couple small finishes this week. This is a SNN kit from March 2007. He's pretty cute and it was a quick stitch. The directions did not clarify how to use the Frosty Rays thread, which I hate with a passion because it's just NOT NEAT, so I stuck to doing half crosses:
They gave enough thread to do full crosses, I see that now that it's finished, but I prefer it this way. It's small for them--4.5" X 4.5". I am trying to figure out if I want to finish it as a cube, which would be easier-ish, or if I want to make it into an ornament. This is not an easy decision.
 
 
I also finished this little guy this week. He was actually a UFO from the fall and I just decided to finish him. He's a Sanman and pretty cute.  I know I have a tuck somewhere in the house that he goes into, but I have no idea where it is:
 

 
Someone Small told me he was "Cea-suh", and I do see the resemblance. Although I think, in her mind, dogs fall into two categories: "dee-dees", which are dogs in general and "Cae-suh", brown and white dogs. My brother's little JRT mix got called "Cae-suh" for that reason. Chancey is just "dee-dee" and my daughter shushed her the first time she met her. LOL (Chancey was barking at Left-brain, Chancey and Left-brain don't see eye-to-eye).   Chancey just kind of looked at her, but, when she got put out of the room, Katie kept pointing to the door and saying "Dee-dee, dee-dee," in the saddest voice ever. Chancey really does like her, she was just not used to someone so small telling her what to do.
 
Spring seems to have finally sprung. Maybe. I say that, knowing full well we had a surprise snowstore yesterday. They had called for snow showers, and it "showered" so hard there was accumulation. Today it's all melting. I don't think we'll be on water restriction this summer. The grass is like a sponge and it will take weeks to dry out.  But it's supposed to be 66 this week! Yay!

That puppy is soooooo CUTE!! Congrats on both your finishes.

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
