This week I have enjoyed working on another April block for the Quilt Square Quilt Along. The cutting for this anvil block took a surprising chunk of time - that's 207 pieces cut out for a 12" block!!
In the first anvil block I sewed, I couldn't get the background or the brown stripe fabric going in the same direction.
One of my favorite Maya Angelou quotes is: "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude."
So I've decided I like it like this!
I am going to try to apply the same strategy to my braces. I got a full set of railroad tracks on my teeth 6 months ago, and it has turned out to be one of the most challenging things I have ever done. I had my braces rewired yesterday and today I can feel my heartbeat in my bottom teeth...oh, how they ache! Well, let's see...how can I change my attitude? I will focus on how much these teeth must be moving for them to hurt the way they are...maybe I will be able to get the braces off earlier with all this pain? I guess that ending this torture earlier might be worth the pain!?! After I brush my teeth (very gently), I am going to sew a few more mini anvil blocks.
