I'm a very novice quilter, but the more I see, the more I love them. However, I like the kind you can cuddle up in ... lap quilts and bed quilts. Don't think I'll ever aspire to doing Quilt show quilts, but would like to make some for family and friends. Like my pottery, I tend to prefer things "functional".
On another note, I went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned this week. I really don't like going to the dentist... for any reason. Don't know why... guess it's a phobia... and apparently a common one. But my heart beats almost out of my chest the minute I walk into the office and all through the procedure. We talked about it as I have to go back next week for a small cavity (and I haven't had a cavity in probably 20 years). She says it's very small and won't take but a minute to fix, but wants to fix it before it becomes a problem. I agreed to do it. She wants me to take a low dose Valium or Ativan before coming in... so I won't be so stressed. I've never taken anything like that, but agreed to give it a try. Do any of you have this problem?
Cats (inside and outside) are doing fine. We have lots of baby raccoons visiting lately in the yard. One is fascinated by the cat toy (the circle ring that has a ball inside). Unfortunately he gets so caught up with playing with it that he doesn't see when his mother and siblings leave... then looks around like "oh no, where'd everybody go?" We took this video with my iPhone.
If you watch it for a bit, you will see a little black kitten come out and wonder why the raccoon has taken over his toy...
Have a great week!
