Feeling Sorry for Myself

I guess I'm just feeling sorry for myself right now. I had root canal work done this morning. When I got home I didn't feel too bad and decided to make up this week's Friday Block Party block. I must have been totally drugged when I put the colours together.
Now that I look at the finished block the colours are clashing so badly that I am beginning to feel sick. Combined with the clashes of pain in my jaw, I think I need to take a nap. Oh..... this block is called 'Sickle Variation'. I think I'll call mine 'Sickly Variation'. It is an 8inch block.

Oscar has been lounging in his cat bed all afternoon as I was sewing the block together. Here he is licking his tail. What kind of silly behaviour is this?

Perfectly normal behaviour......for a cat.
So is your behaviour. Normal for somebody who had just a root canal done.
And since I don't know one block from another, I think it looks rather nice considering the cicumstances under which it took root. Did I say root? Nasty word.
But look how one square looks like the shadow of the opposite one.
I think this clever considering------well, now you may fill the space.
And you might feel sickly and I don't blame you,but the block does not.

Oh poor Hetty. Having a root canal is never fun. I hope you will be feeling better real soon. Maybe you should go and lounge in a human bed, it seems like Oscar is very relaxed and happy.
As for your quilt block, well I think it looks fine to me. Maybe after a good nights sleep you will look at it through different eyes.
Take care Hetty,

Actually, I like the block. It might be out of your "norm" ....your comfort zone, really is striking...good contrasts....very attractive! You'll like it when you are feeling better, I"m sure.

I like the block too...
Glad you got a root canal, soon you will be your ole chipper self again.

Oscar's doing the cute kitty thing.

Hopefully you will be feeling better in a day or so and I hope the dentist gave you some good drugs to help with the pain. Just think it's now over with the exception of some healing. Take care Hetty.

I hope you feel better soon. I like your block - I used the same exact green fabric on my doll quilt.
