… for such a little cut.
I was sewing this morning and accidentally snipped off a chunk of my fingertip with my nice, sharp sewing scissors.
I ran to the bathroom and held my finger under the cold running water whilst trying to open the pack of plasters from the cabinet with my other hand. A tricky manoeuvre to say the least.
I managed to unwrap two of them and wound them tightly around the cut, which I think has now stopped bleeding.
Luckily the fabric I was working on is red, so any blood stains won't show.
It is throbbing like blazes now. No more sewing for a day or so.
Where was Lord Peregrine when this terrible tragedy occurred? No doubt out hunting with the hounds again.ReplyDelete
He was sitting at the kitchen table doing the Saturday Telegraph crossword. Said he didn't hear me calling for help 🙄Delete
He needs an ear trumpet.Delete
Ouch. There's nothing worse than pain. Hope it heals soon.ReplyDelete
Thanks northsider. I am such a baby when it comes to blood, especially my own!Delete
It pains while reading itself . I wish you come out of the pain soon . Much loveReplyDelete
Look after it.ReplyDelete
I shall remove the plasters tomorrow and take a peek, but I am very squeamish about blood and wounds.Delete
Oh I can imagine that throbbing pain. Putting those plasters on as tight as possible was the best thing to stop the bleeding. Very acrobatic though with one hand .ReplyDelete
Hope it heals quickly
It was tricky doing it one-handed.Delete
This post is in need of a snowflake warning. I am still cringing.ReplyDelete
Not as much as I did when I saw what I had just done with the scissors. I am such a wimp.Delete
Don't let it get infected. Lots of disinfectant.Delete
What can I say? I hope it heals quickly.ReplyDelete
Thanks Graham. I shall be more careful in future.Delete
We all say that, JayCee, but we never are - unfortunately.Delete
That's true. I am surprised I have any fingertips left. Over the years I have sliced through one thumbtip with the lid of a corned beef tin, and a fingertip with a knife when chopping food.Delete
The worst part is hat you can't sew for a bit, I hate it when that happens but at least your scissors are sharp, mine wouldn't cut butter I need some new one's.ReplyDelete
Be careful with them!Delete
I hate it when that happens. Sometimes I accidentally prick my finger with a needle. And it blimmin hurts for days.ReplyDelete
I just don't like blood!Delete
Extremities always bleed a lot! Well done on putting on a plaster with one hand; I think a medal is in order!ReplyDelete
Especially as I was trying not to look!Delete
