*Grawlix: n. A string of typographical symbols, especially “@#$%&!”, used (especially in comic strips) to represent a swear word.
Friends, I was on a roll. I was tooting along nicely, getting blocks made, designs and fabrics sorted out for forthcoming projects and stitches set in my embroidery. Then I decided to stop and take a break to make some fruit loaf.
I managed to pour boiling water all over my right hand, with the result that I’m wearing a bunch of red, blistered sausages at the end of my arm. It was quite unusually painful, and since many of the blisters are across my knuckles, bending the fingers is not a load of laughs… Luckily I had tomorrow’s SAL post drafted and ready to go, but it’s put paid to the pleasurable afternoon of paper piecing I had in mind – Esther, I’m sorry, but there may be a short delay getting your blocks out 😦
It’s not just the difficulty bending my fingers, but also that I don’t want to smear the antiseptic soothing goop on my fingers all over the fabric. Ah well, at least I can use the keyboard…
Normal service will hopefully resume shortly.
