FNSI – Update

A quick update on my first FNSI!

Well, my first Sew-In was a success.  All the stitching on the Home For Christmas piece is done. I already had the first applique pieces pinned, and would have ironed them on when disaster struck. If you are squeamish, skip the rest of this paragraph. As I was taking the iron off the shelf, it slid, and in my attempt to catch it managed to rip the nail on my left index finger off. I suppose it goes without saying that there was a lot of blood… Just as it goes without saying that it hurt like a mofo…  No surprise of course, that I used Language. A lot of Language. It still hurts and throbs like damnation, but it doesn’t matter – it will be healed before I know it. It will. Won’t it? (Please say ‘yes’.)

Shaky (therefore blurry) one-handed photo, with pins still where they were before The Incident.

Till next time,

Miss Thimble

  4. Oh no! That sounds terrible – I hope it heals quickly and that it’s not hurting.

    Great accomplishment for FNSI!

  5. Ow! You poor thing. Sorry you didn’t’ get to do your stitching. I hope your poor wee finger heals very quickly.
