I won't include an actual photo - - don't want to turn anyone off their tea! Basically, what I did was square up my thumb by cutting off the end of it. This was not a quilting injury - this was a COOKING injury! (figures!) I tried to prepare supper for the oven on my lunch hour yesterday, and while slicing up some raw beef, I sliced up some raw thumb!
I can't sew.
I got some excitement coming this weekend though! I was talking to a woman who works at the literacy centre where I donated those book marks a couple of weeks ago. She thanked me again for them, and I told her it was nothing - that I'm a quilter, and I enjoyed whipping scraps into something pretty and useful.
A quilter? Well wouldn't you know her mother was a quilter, and she has a dozen boxes of fabric in her basement that she'd love for me to take off her hands! Would I?!?!?!?! I may not be able to sew this weekend, but I'll have a sweet time sorting through boxes of fabric. I'm already day dreaming about what I might find - - wouldn't it be incredible if there were a cache of feedsacks in one of those boxes? Or some vintage blocks and tops? I can't wait to find out!
