Yup, still dying here...

It has been over a week since this tooth stuff started, and yes, I am still in pain.  Thank goodness for Vicodin.  It was my only saving grace since Thursday.  I went back into the dentist first thing Saturday morning, and he removed the temporary filling and the packing.  It seemed to  help for a bit (he left it open), but by noon, I was back in severe pain.  Obviously, there is way more going on here than we know.  I am going back today to find some answer, as I can not keep losing all of this time so close to the Fall season starting.  I was basically passed out from Friday until yesterday afternoon.  I have NEVER been in so much pain.  Thank you all so much for your well wishes.  They mean a lot. 

Quite a few of you are home sewers, and have contacted me regarding how to make certain styles.  Well, I have an answer for you, go check out  Started by a stay at home mom, this site is amazing, and is a phenomenal resource.  You will find ebooks that you can purchase and download instantly.  Anything from bucket hats, peasant dresses, ruffled pants, apron dresses, aprons, even to woman's wear.  Many of these ebooks are from your favorite boutique ebay designers, who have been designing and sewing for years.  Be sure to check out the I Made This gallery too!

I will leave you with another beautiful photo from Gina.  I think this may just be my favorite dress of the Fall line.

  1. I love, love, love the barn in the background of that picture. I am always on the lookout for good places for pics and I can never pass up a good weathered barn;) I hope that they find out what is wrong soon so you can feel better. I can't imagine what you are going through. I am the biggest wuss. Get well soon!

  2. that is an amazing picture! and that is my fave dress I have seen so far! I can't wait to see the rest, this is torture waiting!

    I hope you can figure out what is going on with your tooth and get it fixed up soon.

  3. I am so sorry that you're having to endure such pain! I'd be getting on that ol' dentist of yours and tell him to "GET ON IT!" and find out what is the problem.

    YCMT is a wonderful resource. I have purchased a couple of the patterns there and haven't had any problems reading/following them.
