A few days ago, whilst I was happily slicing veggies in the kitchen getting ready to make soup, I slipped and sliced the tip off my right thumb clean off.  We couldn't stop the bleeding so a trip to the emergency room was in order.  The doctor couldn't stop the bleeding with just pressure, so he had to cauterize the end with silver nitrate.  As I am right handed, this means I can't hold a pen properly, or a pair or scissors, heck I am struggling with a tooth brush!

So, I will be taking a break from crafting to give it time to heal, but as soon as I can hold a pen again I'll be back.  I'm trying to look at the bright side, this will give me more time to check in on your blogs!


  1. I hope it's real better soon morgan.
    And you can hold your pen.

    greetings karin
