It started out painfully...

I got a new perminant crown yesterday.

It shouldn't have been a big deal, and I guess it really wasn't; however as the dentist reached in my mouth to pull out the temporary one all I could think of was the scene from Les Miserable's where they steel the poor girls teeth.  It went down hill from there.

Every time he put the perminant one in and took it out electric tingles worked their way into my sinus cavity.  It was like chewing on aluminum foil...by the time I got done my mouth was one big mass of sensitivity. 

I was assured that it looked pretty - but I wasn't sure that it was worth the effort.

I spent the rest of the day doing laudry (so that I wouldn't feel guilty when I go on a quilting retreat at the end of the week) and cleaning out 15 years of accumulation from my middle son's room.  (He didn't really need all of those old clothes and shoes.

I finally ate lunch at 3:00.

THEN THE MAIL CAME!!!!

Funny thing is she made it after seeing my entry that also had drifting Dresdon plates on it.

Goodies received from Beachgirl Sews via Fab Little Random Treasures Swap (FLiRTS) on Flickr. Yes, the pillow is that gorgeous.  The two little pouches are too
FLiRTS Received!
She made the back of the pillow more "boy friendly" - although they are NOT going to get this one. 
FLiRTS Received!
The pouches close up.   The quilting on these is awesome.


AND

I got a check in the mail from one of my customers.  I agreed to do a bunch of work for her with the understanding that she would pay me when she could.  The check was $114 more than she owed me.  I guess she is paying me in advance now.  (I did check with her about that and it is her intention.  Can't wait to see the wonderful quilts she brings to me.)

The day wasn't so bad after all.

You have my sympathy about the dental work -- I always dread it. Glad you got goodies in the mail -- they are fabulous!

I have irrational dental phobia... the last time I had to undergo major dental work my dentist prescribed valium. It really helped but you need someone to drive you! Glad your AMAZING mail booty brightened your day!!

Love the off-centred Dresden plate! My WM is having crowns done at the moment, ninety minutes in the dentist's chair two week ago, same again tomorrow! I have recently had root canal therapy so I completely understand and commiserate with you!
