but I am not holding my breath :p Might be tempting fate but the 2 of us seem determined to break a leg or our necks. As long as I don't do what I did yesterday I'm fine with a broken arm because honestly I really doubt it would hurt any more :p I whacked my hand, right where my 6th finger was. The cupboard door came falling with force right onto my finger. Now I get some people might be thinking "oh how could that hurt?". That area usually hurts, probably have something to do with extra nerves. But it hurt more because there is a small lump of something (drs have no idea what it is without cutting me open to find out. its not noticeable unless you press on my hand), sitting right where the nerves are and it moves all the time. So it probably wouldn't have hurt as much if that little stupid lump wasn't there, but because it was, it was like having a rock between the door and my hand. Pretty swollen up :/ So enough complaining....
I did have every intention of drawing today but it just seemed to be one of those days where my hand just doesn't want to cooperate with the pencils so after a few hours of trying to draw something, anything, I gave up and got out the sewing machine. Figured it was about time I finished my pencil wrap (which if I make another one I would do a few things differently and I do plan on making more of them).
The 2 strips of elastic that I put close together work well for holding the small pencils. The elastic is tight enough right now that even smaller pencils should stay put for the moment until the elastic loosens up (if it does). I didn't leave the elastic long enough so the wrap is going to be about 2-3 inches shorter then I wanted but that is all right :) So hopefully this will get done tomorrow.
And Mr.F is trying to grow pumpkins again this year. It shouldn't get to triffid size like the squash did, but time will tell :p
And some Sweet Peas in the back. They grew huge in their little pots. Love all the different colours. There are some really nice lilac coloured ones not in this picture, I have to remember to take a picture of them when its not 8 at night :p
*edit*hmm spoke too soon. Hit my head on the corner of the fridge getting my meds. Putting bubble wrap on all the corners in the flat is sounding like a better idea everyday :p
