My friend Karoda commented on my last post about Amazing Grace 2 that she thought I could lop off a part of the right side and it would look so much better. (At least that is how I interpreted her comment!). I replied to her privately that the little quilt was done, finished, put to bed, and I was not about to entertain thoughts of unsewing the facing, cutting it down, and resewing it! Welll......................................:
This is how she looks now:
I couldn't stop thinking about what Karoda said, and I also kept thinking about how this is supposed to be a learning process, so I ripped out the right side facing , cut off a couple of inches, and resewed it. NOW, I am realizing that in a perfect world, I would cut off part of the bottom and reface it as well. HOWEVER, that said, time is of the essence, and I have to deliver the little wall hanging tomorrow! So, thanks to everyone for your patience in reading these Amazing Grace posts, for offering so many wonderful and helpful comments, and being so very kind!!!
I've been SCLONCKED!!
C is always using the term 'scloncked' and so the other day (after being married for how many years??) I asked him where it came from as I'd never heard anyone else say that (have you????). He said that his mother used to say it. OK, if either of my sisters-in-law, Carol or Molly, are reading this, I hope that you will comment if you ever heard Margaret say 'scloncked'.
Anyway, I really feel as though I have been scloncked!!
I will make a very long story short: I have SHINGLES!!!
Yep: SCLONCKED!!!! I started feeling a bit odd on Tuesday afternoon, and by Wednesday morning, I just knew that I had Shingles. I made an appointment with my internist immediately and he said he didn't think it was Shingles and he wanted me to have some dental x-rays taken as he thought I might have an abcessed tooth. Well, my mouth was so sore that the thought of putting those cardboard x-ray thingies in there was almost too much for me to bare/bear. This morning 'matters' with the Shingles were worse than yesterday, so I called the Dr back and said you must see me today, as I need the Shingles drugs. He told me I must see the dentist first! Well, ok, I guess I'll play: no x-rays, no drugs! The dentist was very gentle in my very sore mouth............but he agreed that I definitely had Shingles. So, back I went to the Dr........voila: Shingle Drugs! The darned things appear to be emanating from my left ear, and the pain is excruciating at times, but I know in my heart of hearts that all of this will be history by tomorrow!! :-)
