I never thought I'd hear myself say this.... but I really must defend my dentist!!! She really wasn't being rude when she said I have incompetent lips- it's a recognised condition.
Basically, my gorgeous pouty lips don't naturally close when I'm in a relaxed state - if I'm really relaxed I look like I'm catching flies i.e. mouth agape in a gormless fashion.... v v attractive ;)
This means I'm a mouth breather....and I really do have to concentrate hard to keep my gob shut and breathe through my nose!! Unfortunately it also has potentially serious consequences for one's gums. Saliva is vitally important in gum health - with your mouth shut your gums are bathed in lovely lovely saliva that serves to dilute the plaque bacteria on and around your teeth.
If you're a wide mouthed snoozer like me, your mouth dries out and the little b**gers have free reign to invade your gums.....you also wake up with a mouth like sandpaper...nice!
Is it any wonder Moogsdad finds me devastatingly attractive?!!! :)
Ho hum.....that's enough of that I feel.
Let's go onto something a little nicer.
As the excitement of potential chicken fostering got me in it's grip the other evening, I decided to make a little teeny tiny needlefelted something to keep the dream alive.
I finished her off today - she previously lacked eyes.
Henrietta (of course!) - a diminutive fowl -
with a rather fluffy beak and a gentle disposition
and cute from all angles :)
Monster told me she needed legs. I chose to ignore him. Because my brain hurt when I tried to work out how to make teeny chicky limbs. She's broody. Legs not required.
I've been stitching something this evening that may become a mini-quilt for Mrs Locket's Magnificent Wall of Quilts.
It seems yesterday may have been a blip and service is returning to normal :)
p.s. in case you're still wondering Monkee Maker - I'm a very competent kisser - I can pucker up with the best of them - the relaxed mouth-wide-open bit doesn't apply to kissing.....well, maybe some kissing...........just don't tell Moogsdad ;-)
