It was a little crazy last week. It started out normal with the Monday singing group. We have started on Christmas song practice, and I thought these would be easy, no surprise songs. Well I was wrong. There is a song called "Twas the Night After Christmas" I have never heard before, and the other surprise was "Pablo The Raindeer".
I got the quilting done on both quilts for my daughters. This was a pattern by Carol Swift @Just Let Me Quilt called "Who's Looking At You" and can be purchased here.
This week I also finished hand sewing the binding on my brother's king-sized quilt. Too hard to get a picture here. I plan to take it guild meeting on the 16th for show and tell, and they will take a picture there.
Tuesday was spent getting ready for workday at my house with about 6 guild ladies on Wednesday. I had a big mess to pick up with all the Halloween fabrics all over my work area. Tuesday my tooth that I had a crown put on a couple of months ago started hurting again, so much so I couldn't chew at all.
Wednesday the ladies came over for several hours and we cut batting and binding to match the the tops and backings and bagged them up for pin basting day. While everyone was there, I developed a terrible migraine on top of the tooth pain. That afternoon I was able to get a dental appointment and found out I had an abscess and needed a root canal on that same tooth. My office didn't have an endodontist available till 11/16 and so they asked if I would mind going to another office. They gave me an antibiotic and some ibuprofen. There was 1-1/2 hour wait at the pharmacy and I barely got my prescription before they closed down.
Thursday morning I was called and said another office downtown would be able to take care of my tooth. Apparently the tooth I just had a crown put on, the nerve is dead, but the root canal was done. I still have a bump in my mouth where the abscess is, but I am able to chew again, without much pain.
The rest of Thursday and Friday I didn't feel like doing much, and didn't, mostly rested.
Saturday was granddaughter Klara's 9th BD. They came over briefly in the afternoon to get her gifts. Klara loves Stranger Things, and I cut out an SVG image from Stranger Things in vinyl with my Cricut, and ironed it on a sweatshirt.
While I haven't been doing much this week, I have been reading up a storm, mainly this series by Carol Dean Jones, Cozy Quilt Series. They are a quick read and I think I have read 4-5 this week. I have Kindle Unlimited and they are free to me.
My daughter has been encouraging me to watch this series on Netflix called The Haunting Of Hill House, I have the last couple of days in keeping watching a creepy series for Halloween. It is creepy for sure.
Around my neighborhood, they have some very clever decorations, which we stopped and got some pictures of this afternoon.
This week for Slow Sunday Stitching I will be working on two projects. The first is Granddaughter Kyleigh's poncho. I had about 5 inches knit and I found out I had dropped a stitch somewhere. I have ripped this thing out 3 times, I am finally starting over and am going to try it again. It is supposed to be a Christmas gift but warned her it might be delayed.
I'll be linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching. Head on over and check out what everyone has been up to.
Thanks for stopping by!
