SAL Update 5.14

Sorry friends for the delay on today’s post! I’ve been recovering from oral surgery this week as I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. Ouch!ย Because of this, I was unable to schedule my SAL Update to post this morning, even though I did get some rest-in-bed-stitching done ๐Ÿ™‚ Today is also Mother’s Day, so my husband and I spent the afternoon with our mom’s. We went on a historical home tour and had lunch. Luckily I survived the tour in my condition.ย I’m doing ok, but I’m not 100% recovered. I still have some soreness in my lower jaw, eating soft foods, and taking my meds. Luckily, Sunday is still here and I’m just getting around to writing my SAL Update.

Here’s where I’m at with Winnie the Pooh and his pals. I completed filling Pooh in and continued working on Eeyore. I’m so excited seeing this from afar. Eeyore’s head is turned toward Pooh and Piglet, so the black stitches are forming his other ear, if you can imagine.

For the month of May, my quilt shop drew the number 6 for our UFO Challenge. #6 on my list is to complete 3 Beeutiful QAL blocks. If you remember, I joined this group working on these embroidery blocks, but had stopped to focus on Winnie the Pooh. So far I’ve completed 1 embroidery block, #8 of the series. I’m currently working on #9 and have yet to start #10.

Finally, I would like to show off my new project bag that my mom sewed up for me. Even though it’s Mother’s Day, mom always has a gift for me. She is so giving, so supportive, and so loving. Thank you again mom for this beautiful bag!

  1. Having your wisdom teeth out is horrible, not just because it hurts a lot, during and after, but because you walk around looking like a chipmunk for days… or was that just me?! I hope you’ll be feeling better very soon. You’ve certainly been pretty busy in the meantime, and the bag is just beautiful โ€“ I love that fabric on the back!

  2. Love your bee blocks! And I had a wonderful Mother’s Day as well. I figured since you started back on your bee blocks you could use another “project” bag to store them as you work on them or any other WOP.

  3. I hope you are feeling better! I’ve been told I need mine out, but I’m avoiding making the appointment! All of a sudden work is very exciting.
    Your Poo Bear is coming along so nicely! Such a lovely picture. And how lovely of your Mum – it’s a lovely bag!

    • Yes, I was doing the same, putting it off. But it had started to bother me on a daily basis. Was constantly biting my gums back by the wisdom teeth. I know once I heal, I’ll feel ultimately better ๐Ÿ˜
      Thanks! I can’t wait to work on Eeyore some more and find a project to fit my bag!

  4. Ohh ouch! I had all 4 of mine taken out when I was a teenager and can totally relate. It will take a while to recover fully but each day will get better ๐Ÿ™‚ all of your projects look wonderful. Love the bag your mom stitched for you. Aren’t mom’s wonderful?

    • Yes, today I was finally able to open my mouth wide enough to see how everything is healing up. The swelling is going down too ๐Ÿ˜Š Yes, mom’s are the best! Thank you!

  5. Some great progress, here, love your new bag and the blocks too! I hope you are on the mend now, and the bruises and swelling are fading! My wisdom teeth were pretty messy, nerves wrapped around the roots, so they were cut out. Not much pain, but the incisions took a while to heal up. Much better, though to be all done,mtn an go through this twice!!

    • Thank you! Swelling has improved but still a little sore. Tomorrow should be better, each day a little more improvement ๐Ÿ˜Š ouch, that does sound painful. My incisions look to be healing well…I hope. Yes, I definitely wanted them all out at once then to go through this twice.
