White House Briefing

Now, do you really think I would have taken a photo of my mammogram? No one wants to see my boobs (excepting the dude) and no one--not even the dude--wants to see them squished flat in a giant machine. I managed to finagle the prescription from a doctor across the hall from the imaging center, so that worked out. And eventually I stopped feeling antsy from just having walked out at work--my boss was out so I didn't have anyone particularly to tell I was leaving. And why tell, if I can get a free few hours off work? Once home, I picked up the RR and stitched up that damn white house. (You'd have thought I'd have had hours in the waiting room, but I arrived at 2:30 went and got my scrip, checked in at imaging at 2:45, and was on my way home at 3:10. I know!)

At 11:00 last night, I finished! I need to add my name and off this goes back to Edgar, a complete and completely lovely LHN round robin.


A close-up of my white (actually 712) stitching to prove that everyone has trouble stitching white. (Even with railroading and a laying tool...sigh.) Hey! Good thing I took this close-up because I just noticed the door jamb needs some work!

Thank you for setting me free from my "white stitches" complex, I was starting to think it was only me! Looks perfect to me.

Looks wonderful! I hate stitching with white thread too.

I'm glad that you were able to wrange a prescription for your mammogram. And no, I didn't expect pics of your squished boobs, just the machine. LOL. Great job on Edgar's RR. He is going to be so tickled when he gets it back!

Well done - houses are some of my least favourite things to stitch, because they're so, um, boring! But I'm sure Edgar will appreciate all the effort you've gone to to make it look so beautiful.

Congratulations on getting Edgar's RR completed. I love it! Sure glad to hear I'm not the only one that hates stitching with white!

Glad to hear you made it through your mammogram .. I need to schedule mine this week. They are not fun, but short and necessary.

I, um, took a photo at my mammogram. But not of the actual mammogram itself. I have problems, I know.

Congrats! I love what you stitched for the RR.
