Why is it all about Balance, you ask? Hmmm, we'll figure that out at the end of the post.
Yesterday morning I had a dental cleaning appointment. Now, anytime I have to go near the dental office, my heartrate usually goes up a few notches depending on what it is I'm having done. Being as it was a dental cleaning I told myself to calm down. The only thing was my previous hygenist, a very good one (as in gentle), moved out of the city last year and I was now going to have somebody brand new. Can you guess the rest of the story?
I won't go into details but suffice to say I need to look for someone with a much gentler touch. I was pretty stressed out from that, and also the fact they said I will need a crown sometime soon which will cost around $1200! I left there shell-shocked from the pain suffered and the looming costs to come!
When I got home, the stash fairy had left me something via the post.
The stash fairy's name is Becky! She is so sweet. One day she emailed me and said "Hey you! I've just ordered 2 charts from your wishlist and they are on their way to you!" I was in shock, pleasant shock but still in shock! I asked her why. She said "just because!" Well, what can you do? I thanked her graciously and did a happy dance! Thank you, Becky! Not only for me, but as you all know she is very generous stitcher!
The stash took away a bit of the sting from the dental visit!
Here's an update on my SAL with Jane.
We hadn't planned on it but she worked on the left side, and I started with the right. So while I have the little man done, she has stitched the woman along with the flowers on the left. If you read her blog post, you can see that she mentioned that the designer of this piece, Brenda, posted about this SAL on her blog.
Brenda, if you are reading this, I just want to thank you for mentioning our SAL. I can't leave a comment on your blog just because of the comment setting (comments below post). It's the bane of my blogging existence!
Jane and I are just zipping along merrily on this SAL.
I haven't mentioned much about the Winter Olympics even though it's being held here.I'm not that up-to-date with sports to really talk about the events though there were lots of great moments. However, there are two things I want to say:
1. Loved the ice skating/dancing finals last night. The young Canadian couple won gold and was a dream to watch. It was amazing!
2. Check out this video on these amazing rock sculptures someone did on the beach here. It's a 5 minute video but it's amazing how this man manages to balance rocks one upon the other. The last bit will amaze you, I promise!
I guess that was the bit about "balance".
Thanks to KarenV last time for pointing out that ABC Stitch Therapy had the latest Nashville releases on their site. I did go and have a look and found more goodies! It never ends...which is, honestly, a good thing!
Thank you for visiting. I may report to those groaning over my spring weather report that it's overcast today with rain in the forecast. And the price to pay for the sudden spring weather is the start of hay fever! ach-oooo!
