MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

The pain, the pain!

If you don't want to listen to me whining, stop reading now.

Some would say it's the bad coming out of me. Some would say I spend too much time stitching (they'd be wrong, because one can never spend too much time stitching). My right 'pointer' finger is once again breaking down and is extremely painful and aggravating. Yesterday and today I resorted to wearing a thimble on it for protection; a logical thing to do one would think. However. Ahem. Thimbles and I do not get along, despite my best efforts to the contrary. They lull me into a false sense of security.

Embedding a largeish-size needle (never one of the little skinny ones that would minimize the damage) right to the bone in my thumb was the result. Nope,I don't actually USE the thimble - I just hold the finger that's wearing it aside, thusly leading to bodily injury on some other digit because my brain (what there is of it) tells me that my finger is protected and reefing on the needle isn't going to be a problem. Whoops. As I said, the pain, the pain.

I'm done whining now. Carry on.

I have the answer. You are doing too much pointing and not enough cooking. Right Jack?

All kidding aside I do feel for you. When we can't stitch for any reason whining is allowed.

You and I are so much alike MA that it is scary--I have the same problems with thimbles.
I think if I had a thimble on every finger I would probably find another way to push the needle through the fabric.
