A Funny Story and Kings X Quilt

This past week I went to a hand specialist (orthopedist) because I had a bump on my thumb.  It was not hurting me at first, but then when I went to use my scissors, I could not cut a thing.  Well, we can't have that, so I set up an appointment and the doctor told me it was a cyst.  I could either let it go (out of the question if I cannot use a scissor) or have surgery to remove it.  He said that it happens to women my age.  To which I replied, "What do you mean?"  He said, "Well, women between the ages of 45 - 60."  I said, "But I am only 22, don't let my gray hair fool you."  I thought he was going to pass out, he took a step backwards, put a hand on my file (which was on the counter), and was looking for my age.  I finally started to laugh.  He said, "Oh, I thought, oh I thought..."  I am glad he had a sense of humor.

Anyway, on another note, I finished my Kings X quilt top.  Here it is...


  1. Those cysts are nasty. Are they going to do surgery? We can't have you not cutting!!!

    The King's Cross looks great. The narrower inner border is perfect now. Great job!!!

  2. Hi,Talin:-)
    A little funny,but-such it is ,when the doctors look at the hand,not look into the patient's dossieur,not looking at the patient,maybe not looking at their ilness-routine,routine,routine,etc...Where do I know it from??Heh,from Poland ,of course:-)
    Here,in Denmarjk,such a faux pas would be out of the question,as the doctors really treat their patients in an individual way,seriously,whatever the illness is,despite the age and looks.
    And...what's on? Are You going to have the surgery?
    Well,the 'king's Cross' looks really impressive:-)

  3. Hahaha.... though I do feel for the doctor - you must use the same hair colour as me???
    I hope the cyst gets sorted soon... and the Kings X quilt looks amazing.. I love how those colours kindof mix together....

  4. I had a cyst removed from one of my fingers when I was in my twenties the first time -- I've never had any trouble with it since (in any of my twenties decades -- I stopped at 27, um, a while ago). I love the King's Cross -- the colors are wonderful!

  5. The quilt looks amazing. Good job fooling the doctor:)

  6. I would strongly suggest that you follow up with the therapy if you are having it removed. My DIL didn't follow through and her wrist (Where she had the cyst) still hurts.
    I love how you fooled the doctor, I love teasing doctors. The first time I got a shot in my knee I told him if he hurt me I would kick him. He said "That's o.k., I kick back!". You got to love a doctor with a sense of humor!
    Love Di ♥

  7. love the quilt
    hoping cyst removal is quick and easy (or as much as that can be with doctors involved)

  8. Love the rich colors. Doctor's can be so's fun to catch them off guard.

  9. haha!! So sorry you were mistaken for "women of our(my) age". Guess the doc should have checked your birthday from the chart.....maybe a good lesson for him?

    great quilt!
