Tight Lipped Tuesday #32

Last week I had a long awaited appointment with the dental hygienist.

Due to using a device that sprays lots of water around the hygienist and her assistant had to get togged up in an outfit similar to this but black instead of green……….

……….and a head covering which looked like an oversized biker’s helmet.

There was also a huge extractor machine by the window which had to be switched on for ten minutes  after I’d left the room before the next patient could come in.  Apparently, at the start of the restrictions, it had to be left on for an hour.

I felt like E.T. but I didn’t phone home because there were no hygienists in France so I really needed that appointment.

Tight Lipped Tuesday #29

Another in my intermittent series of posts with very few words which, as you know, is rare for me and my first ‘tight lipped’ one since arriving back in England.

 

I bought my very  large self healing cutting mat when I first started patchwork classes around 20 years ago.

It served me very well until this happened.

No longer a flat surface on which to cut fabric, it had to go.

The culprit

white and teal steam clothes iron plugged on ironing board

Aided and abetted by me.

I can now attest that steam blocking knitting on top of a cutting mat – even when you have a thick felt pad in between – does not end well.

In case you had ever thought it would.

Every cloud has a silver lining however and I now have a shiny new mat in a much more cheerful green with inches on one side….

and a lovely shade of blue with centimetres on the other.

Still, I won’t be doing that again.
