Nothing to show for myself

I got braces yesterday.  OUCH.  53yo teeth do not want to be moved.  There was no stitching.  Some of my favorites:

Milanese done with green velvet and Neon Rays plus

Cindy Howland stars done in Flair

Four way stitch done with stranded silk, Kreinik, and Neon Rays

Wheat stitch in floss for the basket

Congratulations to Rafa Nadal for winning the US Open
This is a Kathy Schenkel that I stitched for my favorite tennis player.


  1. Ouch is right, you are a brave one! How long will they be on? Love your favs!

    1. Six to nine months. I should be rail thin by then. Chewing hurts! Thanks for thinking of me.

  2. What a nuisance! Sorry for the pain. I speak from experience that each day will get a little better (until they're tightened again!). I'm sure you'll be glad when it's all done.
