Bowling pin kitty...

I've had a toothache since Thursday night...TOTAL bummer since my dentist normally is closed on Friday and it was a holiday weekend due to Labor Day.  Needless to say, I did not feel like sewing all weekend (or smiling, cooking, talking, etc.).  Thank goodness for Ibuprofen and something slightly stronger that Steve did not need following his last dental procedure. 

I did manage to turn in this 15 inch block on Friday morning.  Ola, Mary J. and I designed this for our LQS - it will be the shop's block for the upcoming "holiday hop" (they had to have a block for Halloween).  Drawing the cat was easy...just start with a bowling pin and add ears, whiskers, and a tail, hee-hee-hee.  If customers want to "cute it up," they can add a face.  We decided to leave it neutral, in case people don't celebrate Halloween.  Halloween is HUGE around this house.  It is my daughter and husband's favorite holiday.

I have a dental appointment this morning...then maybe I will feel like mucking around with the boxer shorts.  I have to admit that a lot of weird, twisted ideas were floating through my thick head after taking Steve's happy pills for the toothache pain...I was having visions of boxers...

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  2. Now that's an adorable block.
    Go get that tooth taken care of. I swear, anytime I have ever had a dental problem it happens on a Friday or when I am on vacation.

  6. Tooth pain is the worst of them all. Like labor pains (I would guess) in your mouth. I hope the appointment goes well. Love the block!

  7. What a cute block!

    So sorry about your toothache. I've been nursing one myself, but I hate going to the dentist so I'll suffer for just a wee bit longer :(

    Take care of yourself,
    Sue

  11. The spider dangling down by the Halloween cat is very whimsical. I so like fall quilt designs.

  12. I feel for you! Toothaches have no regard for weekends and holidays. A dentist could make a fortune being available on "off" hours. Hope it's all better!
