Finished the R

I'm back to report I finished the R block last night. Love the way it turned out. Now just 3 more blocks left till I can start the GORGEOUS summer bell pull. This one took me 8 days. Not too bad. A lot of color changes like a typical stoney creek. So worth it though when finished.

Unfortunately I got bad news at the dentist. I knew I had one tooth that would be coming out. It's the reason I finally broke down and called. I also knew I had more problems then I wanted to admit. I found out I have a really bad gum disease called periodontal disease. It's more of a priority to treat than even my infected tooth. So as I was worried it's going to be a very expensive long procedure. 4 hours long! My impressions of this dentist place is very good though. They are going to be using IV sedation and I've read a lot about that. It seems the way to go. Yes expensive but I won't feel the pain during the procedure which is a must for me. We went today and got it all scheduled so I will be going in March 9th. Which should mean I'll be all healed up by the time for our trip at the end of April so that's good. Now to just relax and get through it. Thanks so much for all the thoughts/prayers and I will definitely appreciate them coming up March 9th again.

  3. So sorry to hear about your dental problems but it's amazing what modern medicine can do for our sanity in such situations. Perhaps if you are a good girl you should treat yourself to a new chart/kit as a reward?!
    Love the R, by the way! :)

  8. The R is beautiful and there's a lot of work in there.
    Fortunately I get my dental treatment for free, but IV sedation would cost about £250 if I didn't. That's why I go for my checkups, prevention being cheaper than cure!

  9. BTW you might be OK afterwards, but I tend to ramble on and repeat myself as I come out of the sedation! It's very funny apparently. Because I'm so small it affects me for longer. Hubby is fine within ten minutes of the procedure, I'm off my head for hours!

  10. I love how the R looks. And yes, it is a typical Stoney Creek designs. But it's exactly for all the colour changes and the many little motifs that I love Stoney Creek.
    I will be thinking of you on March 9th, and I'm sure you will get through the procedure without any problems. Keeping my fingers crossed for you, Katie.
