Disaster in the Craft Room !!!!!
Good Morning All, This is the result of me crafting yesterday lunchtime......a trip to A&E.
I was doing a really stupid thing (as we all do) I was using Tim Holtz lovely sharp scissors to poke a hole through some fabric - having the scissors closed would have made the hole too big - so rather stupidly I opened the scissors so that I just had one blade going through - which it did rather easily and straight into my finger at a lovely angle. It was very deep and I couldn't stop the bleeding.
Luckily, my husband was home, so he took me to A&E where I waited nearly 2 hours to be seen. When they took the bandage (that we had put on) off, it was still bleeding. They had a little trouble trying to stem the blood. Didn't have stitches though just tape to keep skin together.
Not painful, but I keep getting shooting pains when I stretch my hand without thinking.
On a positive note: I cant do the washing-up or peel the potatoes for a while - so hubby and son have taken over those duties. Hubby even came shopping with me this morning.
Will try and play the injured victim for the rest of the bank holiday weekend.
Will try and craft one handed for now.
I guess it wont be the last stupid thing I ever do but hopefully I've learnt my lesson with scissors !!!!
If you're crafting today - be careful. xx
