I've been awake since just after 3am. Sigh. A mixture of sleeping so late yesterday, excitement for today and a little pain are all causes for my early rising today. The first two are self explanatory, but the pain? I burned my hand yesterday. I was rushing to get back to my sewing and grabbed a hot casserole without the oven mitt! I didn't do much sewing after that. There were some tears and some swear words. I managed to get the dinner back into the oven before spending the next hour with my hand under the cold tap. Hunney finished dinner when he got home and I spent the entire evening holding a cotton handkerchief stuffed with ice cubes. It seems to have done the trick, except for one stripe the entire length of my left thumb all the heat and fire has pretty much gone now. It could have been a whole lot worse. What was I hurrying to get back to? A whole bunch of these.
I have a dozen blue butterflies in progress. They are made entirely from my scraps box. I want to sash them with yellow, but I have virtually no yellow scraps, and very little yellow in my stash either, so that's something to look out for in Birmingham today.
** I thought I should edit to say, this is not a butterfly I have sewn, it's a clip are image I have on my computer, my butterflies are very scrappy and incomplete, I'll post pictures of them when I finish them.
LOL You all thought I had sewn that? I wish!**
Hunney and I have a bag ready to go with us today. Yes, he's coming with me, he knows there is no way I would go alone. Perhaps if I knew I was going to meet someone friendly there, but not to spend the whole day with no promise of a friendly face. I'm really not very confident in strange places and he knew he just had to come with me.
I think my thumb might let me play with the sewing machine for a while, so I'm off to finish my butterflies.
1) A scraps box.
2) My sweet Hunney.
3) The cold tap and ice cubes.
