History of Cactus and Ouchies

But the ouchies has nothing to do with the cactus

First the cactus is virtual so it's pretty safe. :) I have been asked if I could do a fractured image cactus because it seem that they are very IN right now (writing that I had a flashback to the amazing series on Netflix "A series of Unfortunate Events" season 2, if you saw it, you know why)

The ouchies come from having surgery to remove a wisdom teeth that was giving me trouble.

I tried some designing and some sewing but between pain, hot flash, cold sweat and dizziness it was just better for me to just lay down.

So on my plate this week, I have a Cactus to design and pineapple to finish.

I hope your weekend was better than mine.

One bright note was this happy mail from "Friday's off Fabric Shop"

Some amazing low volume. I love newsprints fabrics and this blueprint make my technical designer heart sing :)


  1. I can bet that your fractured cactus is going to be amazing! I had four wisdom teeth taken out a year and a half ago, thankfully I didn't have any complications. I hope you feel better soon and can get back to normal. One good makes brushing your teeth so much easier!!

  2. You cactus is very real looking! I can almost picture the pokes! I hope you're feeling better! Take good care!

    1. Thank you. Hopefully I will be able to reproduce it on fabrics

  3. So sorry to hear about your tooth! I hope you're feeling better soon. Certainly that fabric should help. I love text fabric too, and these are wonderful! That cactus pattern is really cool. I see a series of cactus plants for a quilt! Thanks for linking to Wednesday Wait Loss.

  4. I'm so sorry for the pain! Getting wisdom teeth taken out is no fun! I hope you are healing quickly!
