Ta Daaa !

Well .... it was more like pfffffft ... than ta daaaa this morning
but I made it in time !
Though my hands were shaking doing the last stitches
and the thread got entangled time and again
and I had no time to do the name on the back in stitches
so I just wrote it in pen

"show me your teeth"

Lots of teeth, not only in the horse's mouth, but also on top and bottom
many different tiny scraps and many stitches for all the patients
drops of blood
a bit of sunshine
( for another six months without the dentist
ánd for a healthy pair of teeth )

For the backing I had two pieces of red fabric
I opted for the blood-red with white dots,
 the opposite of the white strip with the red dots on the front,
for the obvious reason ...

and this morning :

snowflakes were falling !!!

( thát's why it had to be the red with the white dots backing )

( Willem said he liked it, that it was special ...
... that's what hé was as a dentist ! )
