And, that's not good.
I need my machine time to keep me happy.
Monday, the dentist's office called and they'd had a cancellation and could move my appointment to start my crowns up by a week...a week less to worry about it. I jumped on that. And, only had a few minutes to worry about it, which was nice. No time to work myself into a tizzy.
It's amazing how long anesthetic lasts when you're relaxed and not stressed out in the dentist's chair. Our new dentist is very confident and I like him. I was able to completely relax and just go with the experience. And, I've only had a small amount of pain. Nothing I couldn't handle.
And, things are already getting better, and we're only at the temporary part.
I have been drawing. I've drawn more fillers for the Broken Star quilt. I haven't drawn what I want yet. But, I have gone off white as the background color. Maybe off-white? And, I'm not all that sure I want the pieced blocks as the fillers. But, for now, I keep going back to that. Not ready to give up on the idea. And, I'll keep going smaller...somehow, none of these is in scale to the rest of the quilt.
And, I keep quilting straight lines. Just in case you're not sure, quilting straight lines is pretty boring. So, I have to break it into small bursts of quilting and then walk away for a while.
But, I'm nearly around for the first time. And, now I get to do it all again, a quarter inch away. yay for my exciting life.
Yesterday, a deplorable posted a hate filled comment on my blog. I can only assume that he saw "man" in the title because his subject was the "vile American woman". And, what he had to say was a big pile of horse poop. I responded with a biting response that he was never going to read, and then decided not to bother all of you with either one. But, I did turn off the ability to post anonymously, because deplorables don't give their names, and I can take advantage of that to block them. But, I think I'm going to change it now to monitor the comments before they post. That might be a better solution because I don't plan to give other people a platform on my blog. I've never done that before, so we will see how it works.
Everybody have a great Thursday! My job has changed a little. I used to work for two people. Now, I'll only be working for one of them. And, hopefully that will free up some time for me to work on new challenges. I'm being recognized for the unique skills I bring to the job and asked to grow those skills on larger projects. It's nice to be recognized.
My Dad used to tell me that good work is always rewarded with...
As true today as it was in 1972 when I was 10 and had to rake the back yard, too.
Read this the other day on someone's desk. Cracked me up. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is probably not your thing.
