OUCH!!

WARNING!! This post contains graphic images of clumsiness, sillness and sheer stupidity. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!


Whilst I was rushing to do this quilt, which is another story in itself, (this quilt was pieced by our local group), and I will leave for later, I managed to get my finger in the way, and the needle from my quilty machine and I became very well acquainted indeed. Hmmm need a manicure!



One might how ask how on earth I managed to do this, but I did. Somethng about trying to multi-task with my man-brain in gear


But talking about man-brain, thank goodness Rowing Man was home and able to put on his Mr Rural GP hat and find some forceps (just what you have lying round in your socks drawer I am sure), and pull the darn thing out -

 
from the bottomside of my finger, the jolly thing went right thru! (cleaned up version)




So I have had a rather sleepless night with finger throbbing, but up and at em, that quilt needs to be finsihed today, and binding done this evening... I hope there is something at least halfway decent on TV tonight,



..and you can see how close to finishing the quilting I was too!! . Guess I won't be doing too much gardening this weekend as planned, need to keep this clean and uninfected...

Slightly difficult to tappety tap these keys with my finger pointed in the air, keeps getting in the way and hitting the wrong keys, going to be  slow day methinks.. Oh well, nothing a morning cuppa can't make right

Have a great Friday everyone...

Hope rowing man GP checked on your Tetanus immunization status.

Very nice that he could pull it out for you without a trip to an Emergency department.

Farm Girl said...

Oh no - hope it's feeling better by now, looks bl*%#y sore. Did the same thing once and was so close to being sick when I looked down and saw what I'd done! Thankfully my hubby was on hand to pull it out too, I don't think I could have done it myself.

Oh' Shiree dear. Wow that had to be horrible. I know all about that throbbing pain and how bad it can be. No sleep with that. Take good care and don't push using that finger to much it will take time to heal. I know from my cat bite.

oooxxx's...Tracy :)

I did just the same things when I was just learning to sew as a kid. You never forget how much pain it causes!! :-) Hang in there and congrats on your shop.
