Sewing break

Well... I'm taking an unplanned break from sewing for a little while due to the infamous "freak 4th of July church pancake breakfast gate accident" in which I smashed and broke the tip of my finger. (And my husband and I both missed out on the pancakes.)

Went to the ER and got stitches and drugs but the hand surgeon needs to see me to get me properly fixed  up--that's scheduled for this Wednesday, so say a little prayer for me if you're so inclined.

The good news is the broken finger it's on my right hand and I'm left handed, I can't imagine how frustrating it would be to lose function in your dominant hand.

My church friends have been really kind and helpful and my husband and kids are helping with things like dishes, cooking, laundry, and washing my hair. I might try to do a little hand sewing, well see how that goes.

Oh vicki, this stinks! :-(
If you were ever looking for justification to buy a tablet or e-reader, I'd say youve got a great one!
Hope all goes well with the surgeon!
Signed- candy, the enabler! :-)

How sad :( Hope it gets better soon!!! :)

Sorry to hear about your injury - ouch!

See, it isn't always bad to be left-handed although us leftys do use our right hands quite a bit.

Hope your finger heals quickly without much pain.
