We had company

     We had company tonight.  David and Vin came over.  He was gonna leave the poor dog in the truck for a few minutes so I put YD in the bedroom and had him bring Vin in.  He sniffed everything, and slobbered everywhere.  Typical Vin, lol.  Of course, YD freaked out when she got back out here and smelled him.  He wanted to give me some advice on where to hang stuff, and how to hang it.  I have to go up to the hardware store and get a masonry bit for my drill.  (If the extension cord is long enough, that is.)  No big deal.
     I got out and deadheaded the Petunias (a big job) and cut my finger.  I had to keep digging in deep to get the stems to break, and I literally cut a quarter inch deep cut on my finger.  DUH!!!  It didn't seem to hurt that bad though...  Anyways, mom's gonna make me a thimble out of denim to put over it.  Cause I use that finger for stitching!!!
     I took piccys of my house tonight.  It's messy of course (when is my house not messy and cluttered, lol), but you'll get the idea.  My living room is crammed.  It has three bookcases (two small and a large), my couch, coffee table, overstuffed chair, table lamp, cat tree, TV on stand, and two "side tables" made out of tray tables.  Dad bought them for me, so I won't get rid of them.  Oh, and my desk, can't forget that!!  Anyways, you can see the pics here.  I'm not done with the bedroom yet, so I haven't taken pics in there yet.  Will do so when it's finished!!  And now I'm off to get my bath and go to bed.  Y'all hagn!!

Hi Julie! Thanks for your comment earlier - I have A Breath of Snow and Ashes, just have to find the time to read it! I love her books, but when I start, I don't want to put them down. Makes it hard to do any stitching and I'm in a slump as it is! ;)
I hope your finger is better, no fun!

Well, I asked my mom to make a sort of denim thimble (she's a seamstress), and she did. But I can't use it cause it sticks out to far, so when it's on my hand, I use another finger, which works just as well, lol. I told her today, "It worked, just not in the manner I was intending it to work," lol. Thanks Beatrice. It is incredibly comfy, and usually comes with a cat, lol. Thanks Prim. I have quite a bit of furniture, so I don't have a lot of empty space, but I do all right. I know, Astrid. They swallow you whole until you're finished, and then you keep thinking what's next. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be ABOSAA. I loved that book, a lot. Sorry to hear you're in a slump. A new project always helps me with that!

Oh no!!!! Stitchy fingers need to be protected!! :) Hope it heals up quickly.

Nice place. :)

Yeah, I see that, now. If I didn't have such a high tolerance for pain, I would have looked at it long before the cut got so bad. Duh!!! As it was, it took me over an hour to finally realize that it hurt and look at it. Next time, I'll take the scissors out with me!

Oh you poor thing... nothing worse than cutting your stitching finger! Funny how you don't feel the pain til you see what you've done!

mdgtjulie said...
