I am the proud new owner of a crown. A tooth crown. I couldn't believe all the technology that got me through this process this morning. I worked hard and fast to get the bathrooms clean before going to me appointment. It must have been a while since my last one. I was expecting a temporary filling until the crown was made and expected to have to go back in a couple weeks to have the crown cemented in. Nope. I got the whole thing today. Not only that but I watched Hoda and Kathie Lee and then The Price is Right with earphones on (so I didn't have to listen to the drilling etc.). It was a breeze. The worst part was writing the check when I was done.
I finished the "E" in Claire and ironed the letters. In each letter is a small square of skirtex. I am trying to decide whether to back each one with silk dipioni or glue a piece of scalloped felt to the back. The felt way would be way easier. I will lace the linen to the skirtex first.
I finished all the roses on Briar Rose! Yeah! Cathy B. (http://www.needleandthread.blogspot.com) is working on hers too. She is probably doing it the right way. I have to go back and fill in all the roses with various pinks. The countdown is on - 15 days until I leave for retreat.
I did some more buttonholes on Beautiful. It really isn't worth a photo. I hope to finish up the buttonholes today and start on the bottom section which has more vines and alphabets.
I got a call that the kits for the Sue Spargo class I signed up for are in. I asked them to send me mine. I'll show you what it looks like when I get it.
I am almost done with the large "E" on Mute But Not Silent. I'd like to start the top row on the chart.
