Well that's what my back tooth now looks like....not olive green you understand but it certainly looks stuffed with something ( a dressing cover ) the colour of these words!
Yes, the day has improved greatly and I am now un- numb again. It could have been worse - I survived and behaved reasonably well and only levitated once (beside trembling a lot.) Kind dentist man put a temp pollifiller in the second broken tooth and said it was even more in need of saving than # 1 tooth. That will be $370 please.
Right; on to something pleasant now.
2 of today's photos show the inside and outside of my latest Hexagon creation. A needle case. Using a 5" hexagon I made it by the same method as before( in the quilts ), and sewed the 2 together along just one side to form the spine. Then I cut out 2 side by side felt hexagons with a joining strip between them. I machine stitched the felt to the covers and attached a dome for closure and I have a wee gift for someone. Do you see that wicker basket - its almost as old as me. I got it one Christmas when I was a wee girl and still have it. I keep all my old sewing bits and pieces like hooks and domes and old bias tape and things I rarely use any more in it.
Lastly something else in the garden that looks bright and the bees love. It is a small Rata bush...it's related to the New Zealand Pohutukawa( Christmas tree ) same family in fact.
