A Sewing Christmas nightmare...

'Twas two weeks before Christmas in Cardygirl's house, 
Cardy was sewing,  she daren't leave the house.
She needed to hang the stockings, but no chimney there...
please, please don't let St Nick soon be ANYWHERE near there!
Sound familiar?????
All was going well after work this morning, washing done, house fairly tidy...time to finish those presents!
I was going SO WELL...I was really impressed by myself actually...I could handle any pressure the festive season wanted to throw at me...far too smug I say in hindsight.
Things looked like this...very happy creating...just a peek...then this happened...
a rotary cutter injury...ow...ow...ow! Nice slice off the old fingernail...ow! Not good!
And naturally not a bandaid in the house!
So what did I do? May as well do the groceries while I am out buying bandaids...then cook a cake for a lunch I am going to tomorrow...may as well blog about my poor coordination.
Lesson of the day...when you are rushing, remember to move your fingers!
 Might get back to those pressies tomorrow?

We all live in fear of a roatry cutter accident - not because of the pain, but how long before we can sew again. Hope it feels better soon.

Ohhh, not nice. They can get bitey those rotary cutters. Doesn't sound like it's slowing you down though. Hope it heals quickly & isn't one of those wounds that hurts all the time. Tracee xx
