Funky sneak peak

Funky.
Not my usual style.
Not my usual colors.
Not my usual linen count.
But so much fun!

I'll be stitching on 28 count linen with *gasp* 2 strands of thread!  This was one of those charts that immediately scream !cute! to me, so I guess its worth going out of my comfort zone.  Still plenty of time to sign up for my blogoversary giveaway here.

I still haven't made up my mind what the vintage option will be, but I have some ideas.  Probably a good thing since stitching is at a snail's pace right now.


My knives are super sharp and I was an idiot.  I know proper knife handling techniques, I just chose to ignore them on Monday and paid the consequences.  I didn't even feel the cut the knife is so sharp, but its a good one.  About and inch long and almost down to the bone, right on the second knuckle.

Ok, I didn't need to hear the details of your accident with the knife. Yikes! I'm really shuddering now. You poor thing! As for the funky -- what fun! Love those buttons!

The colors of the fibers and fabrics are pretty hard to resist!!! Hope you have lots of fun stitching this one. Here's hoping that you heal quick!

Ugh! Yuck! Take care please.

Ooh.. that looks so painful. I'm such a klutz in the kitchen that I can really sympathize. My fingers have the scars to prove it, but nothing like yours. Hope it heals nicely and doesn't affect your stitching!

Sounds like a 'proper' cut...ouch! I hope it heals quickly for you. LOVE the colours, especially the fabric.

ouch..
I usually handle killer looking knives without problems too.. while cutting an enormous block of chocolate (in the dark.. - don't say anything) a couple of years ago I somehow figured out I didn't need the point of my left thumb.. I actually found the little piece on the knife.. (worst thing was no stitching, as I kept on leaving merbrominish pink marks on everything.. I switched to LEGO brick for a while.. :D)
I hope yours won't affect you that much! :D
take care!
