Oops!!!

I was hoping to do my blocks (needle-turn) this week... but then I sliced my thumb open!!!

I did this a few days ago, but believe me it was deep! I needed to swap out my bandaid three times the day I cut it ... and it was only at lunch time that I did it!! (Every time I bent my thumb ever so slightly it re-split and bled further!!

Although it has stopped bleeding, it is still quite tender, so unfortunately I don't think I'll be getting much done until I get home next week.

.... Sorry Chooky!!! ....

Hate to be my mother but should you have got that stitched at the doctor's?
I can't translate what Wilma wrote, but the words al miedico and pronto stand out, so I think she may have said the same thing.
