The Root Canal

I started 2009 by having a root canal, and as I was trying to think about something else, or something positive, while the endodontist was drilling through the inside of my tooth, I thought of this image. It's a happy root canal and the theme for January's Journal Quilt.

  5. Jamie,
    I LOVE this one! The graphics are beautiful! I've had 2 root canals, can't say they were pleasant experiences, but am oh so grateful that I got to keep the teeth!

    Well done!

  10. Jamie, this is a brilliant way to reframe an unpleasant experience, and a great reminder to all of us that we can do the same! Thank you for sharing it.

  11. Jamie, I had my first crown (with no jewels!) and got bifocals within a week of my 45th birthday this fall. I know how you feel!
