I finished my dental practicum this week and I'm happy to report all went well. The girls in the office were very patient with me and let me do just about everything. I think they're going to miss me because I was doing all the work....teehee. I'll see them again in 6 months because this office is my regular dentist. I've been visiting them for over 18 years. And BTW, I did have my regular cleaning done while I was working....LOL
I finally got into some sewing today, it sure feels good to get back to cutting and sewing. I don't have much progress to show, so since a few asked about the quilt on my new black quilt rack, I'll show the whole thing today. It's not new and I showed this when I first started blogging but I don't think it was quilted at the time.
Swapping can be so much fun, Karen and I have done a couple of swaps and I really enjoy each one. She has such a wonderful way of packaging, I just love the red gingham tissue paper, I wish I knew where to get some.
All this came in that wonderful wrapped package, I feel so lucky Karen included 2 of her stitched pillows, they are so cute and her stitching is fantastic, I'll keep these on display all year. The braided runner (which you can't see all of) it so prefect, Karen knows my colours well and it looks awesome on my front hallway table. She included a CD from Kathy Schmitz which is full of clipart, labels, redwork pillow and needlepunch, I'd highly recommend this one. The pattern is for 2 doll quilts and it comes with pink and brown fabric to make both. Thank you my dear friend Karen, I'm going to have so much fun playing with everything.
This year I bought a hardy fuschia plant called Santa Claus, this one doesn't like direct sunlight which is prefect for the backyard and our weather. I love the red and white, it's doing really well and full of so many blooms.
