Friday Night with Friends June.

Since i missed out sewing last weekend along with Chookyblue, due to a migraine, for her Chookshed birthday i planned a sewing retreat for myself this weekend &  luckily it coincided with FNwF. Great, i thought, planning all sorts of things in my head until i remembered Friday was the 6 week orthodontist check up. Darn there goes part of the day. Oh well thinking i'll still go ahead with things. Famous last words. :)

So i planned slow cooker meals & even cakes/slices. Started to make pea & ham soup for last nights dinner.
My soup turned out fabulous but i guess you are wondering did i sew. Well when i was cutting up the vegetables to put into the soup i did this.
Sorry not a good photo. I sliced open the side of my finger just under the fingernail. Being right handed & the cut being where it is i couldn't hold a pencil or needle. I was planning to prep this months boms in the morning before the appointment. Didn't happen as blood was pouring out & the cut painful. Moving on wondered if i could manage to make muffins &  but put that aside until later as i had a small visitor arrive. We ended up watching this
After the appointment i thought i'd make those muffins but darn it i aggravated the finger & yes there was blood again. :( but the muffins were made.
So to finish my sorry tale of woe i'll show you what i did make last night
51 coffins. I did have to hold the glue pen a little different than usual but at least i could get something done. Now to see if i can get any sewing done today. It's cold & overcast again. Maybe i'll just curl up under a blankie & read or maybe cut more coffins & watch Netflix. :)

Thankyou once again to our lovely hostess Cheryll for being our hostess again last night. Pop over to Cheryll's blog to find the links to who joined in last night & what projects they worked on.

Happy Stitching,

How awful Jeanette! Those little cuts can be so sore & can bleed so much! I hope it soon improves so you can pick up your needle again!
