The other day while driving down to Columbia, after having the car serviced…I was chewing a piece of gum, driving down I-85 merrily on my way, and CRUNCH!
All of a sudden the gum I had been chewing felt like it had rocks in it. ROCKS are not a good thing – especially when it happens to be your tooth!
Long story short --- because I know this can get long --
Instead of making my bee gift, on the day of the bee gathering…pushing it to the last minute anyway --- I wound up sitting in a dentist chair. I’d lost part of an old filling. That was the “Rocks” part. Ewww.
So much for the best laid plans! I did some shopping and I hope my not-so-homemade gift will still please its receiver!
I thought this paper pieced ornament was especially cute! So I’m linking to it HERE for you.
It finishes as a 4” square, and can be paper pieced in only 2 sections, which is pretty cool in my book! It would make a great mug rug or do several of them for a small wall hanging or table runner...I love those geese in the center! FUN!
I’ll be back at the dentist in the morning getting this filling replaced---maybe I’ll get to sit in the waiting room long enough to get that binding finished as well! I’ve got one side to go – and got one whole side done on it while waiting TODAY!
