I can’t believe that it is already Saturday again. I didn’t get much done this week on the crafting front, which is unfortunate considering this blog is about crafting. On Thursday, my orthodontist decided to exact some medieval form of torture on me. I went in to the office with a mouth full of braces and beautifully straight teeth (yea!!), but I left with six, count them, six rubber bands stretched from the top of my mouth to the bottom. He is trying to move some teeth over. Let me just tell you, I have been in quite a foul mood since Thursday at 2:30 and haven’t felt like doing much of anything. This could be a good thing, since it makes it very difficult to eat anything. I have to take them all off to eat and then put in new bands when I’m done. This is not fun, considering the new bands have no give and are tight. Therefore, it’s like being on a forced diet. No snacking. I’ve drunk a lot of coffee and tea. I did leave the orthodontist with some good news, however. His goal is to have these infernal torture devices (along with all the other attachments they have on the back of my teeth [I won’t even go there]) off in two months time. Two months!!! I can handle that (I think). I’ve had them on since May of 2008 so I think I can deal with two more months.
I did get a bit more done on “Winter in my Garden” The window sills are complete as well as the top part of her stool. I was clearly out of it on Thursday night, though, because while I was cross-stitching I lost my needle “somewhere”. I have no idea where it went. My husband and I spend a good 20 minutes scouring the bed and the floor around the bed for it, to no avail. Oops. I’m sure Michael will find it eventually. He usually picks them up in his feet (sorry sweetie). Hopefully, I’ll get some crafting done today. I do need to get some work done outside, dog clean up and raking. It’s supposed to get into the low 50’s today, so I’m hoping it won’t be too cold while I’m out there. Have a wonderful weekend, friends. Hugs,
