A lot has happened since my last post. First off, hubby and I went skydiving on Sunday morning. It was awesome and just like I always imagined it would be. We flew to 13,500 feet and somersaulted out of the plane for a 60 second free fall before the parachutes opened. It was exhilerating and not for one second was I ever nervous. However, that is probably because I had an home art show later that day and I was very nervous for that.
Monday I had a long aweful root canal and today I had it crowned so my mouth feels pretty terrible right now. This morning's doc comes in and says, "So how was the root canal?" and I replied in the most cheery voice I could muster, "It was awesome! I wish every day was root canal day!" She laughed!
I was lying there for two hours thinking, "I jumped out of an airplane...I can handle this..." but I wasn't convincing myself very well.
The art show went fantastically and I am ever so pleased. We played classical music, had wine, cheese and chocolate available and hopefully brought a little culture into our friends lives.
I made almost enough money to pay for this dentistry and for that I am thankful.
On to tatting related stuff:
I have a new favorite personal shuttle and surprisingly it is a large one. I have small hands and prefer to use small shuttles but I have a big project to work on and I thought "Why not give it a try?". So I chose this shuttle and to my delight is holds 50 yards of size 20 tatting thread, it also feels quite comfortable in my hands. Yippee for trying new things!
