Today On Saturday

Last night I participated in my first Friday Night
Sew in, I learned about it from Jacque.
I went to this website and got the link.
Handmade by Heidi.
When I signed up early in the day, I had my evening
all planned I was going to hook and I was going to finish
up my counted cross stitch I had been working on. Which
I did but I did not realize how hard it was going to be.
My first project was my hooked cat.

I started hooking the edges just because I am like that in
my mind. I work best inside of parameters. If I can break
something down into the shape of a square I can get so much
done. That is how I think. That is why my garden is always
in squares I work best that way.
The next thing I worked on is a freebie design from, Betty,
at Primitive Betty's.

I finished that last night too. I have been just wanting
to work on red and white since Valentines Day is just
around the corner.

Anyway back to the story. I went to put gas in my car
and at the gas pumps I noticed that around the pump there
was what I thought was water on the ground. All of the pumps
were taken so I went to the one with all of the water. I was very
careful when I got out of my car, (I thought) not to step in the puddles.
I pumped my gas and and carefully stepped my way back to the door
of my car. I drive a big car and I have to use the running board to get
in so as I went to get in my car, I stepped on the running board and
it was slick as ice and my feet flew out from under me and if I had not
grabbed onto the steering wheel and the door, I would have been
flat on my back in the island of the gas station. It wrenched both of
my arms it felt like out of the sockets. I very carefully got into the car,
and even climbing in slowly my feet still slipped. Then my car smelled of
gas on the way home.

For dinner last night I was fixing Kung Pao Chicken. So I sharpened my knives
real sharp so I could cut my chicken. You can see where this is going right?
So I cut up the chicken and then promptly forgot I had put the very sharp
knives in the hot dish water. So I went to reach into my hot dishwater to get
a dishrag when my finger found the knife. I cut it pretty good. So my first thought
was darn, am I going to be able to sew for Friday night sew in?
After a while It stopped bleeding and I was able to finish that little freebie.

I expected to not be able to move this morning but I can so it is a good
I hope you have a good Saturday too. One of my grandsons came up while I was
hooking my cat rug and said, that the cat was his cat and could he have that
carpet for his bedroom. So I said, yes, so now I have to get it finished so he
can put it in his room.

I better get hooking,


  1. It sounds like you better be careful today. You really could have hurt yourself at the gas station. Hope your finger isn't cut too bad. Put some polysporin on it.
    And stay safe for the rest of the weekend. You can't hurt yourself hooking!

  2. Wow, that sucks! I'm glad you were holding on to the car and the fall wasn't worse than it could have been.

  3. Gee, you'll have a crippled back and a crippled finger, and you won't be able to do anything! That's cute that they already have dibs on your rug. :-)

  4. I'm glad you weren't injured any worse.I hope today is much better.

  5. Geepers! No wonder you felt like a squirrel yesterday! Yikes! Maybe you got all your injuries over with for a while - all in one day! Glad you weren't seriously hurt either time!

    And I think it's great that your grandson is waiting for his kitty cat rug. :)

  6. oh kim! you need to slow down, little lady. i'm so glad
    you're not to sore. it made my shoulders ache to even
    read of it.

    and your poor fingers!

  7. What in the heck???? What is going on with you, girlfriend! Hope you are staying out of trouble today. Just sit and relax and do nothing and it will all be okay. {grin} Lovely projects!!!

  8. Oh Kim--ouch, ouch, ouch. I am glad you are ok-you could have really hurt yourself and I figured you would be sore today for sure. I cute my finger with a sharp knife on Thursday. I sliced through a lemon an kept on slicing with that slight delay between the cut and my realizing I was sawing into my finger. UGH!!! Thankfully, it’s healing pretty well too. Love the things you’re working on--so cute.

  9. Wow, sounds like you had one of those days where it pays to stay in bed! I'm glad you weren't hurt badly. The cat is wonderful and I will love seeing the finished picture. I can't do XS because it drives me crazy, but I love the way it looks and your piece is great!

  10. Oh no! It's all uphill from here right!! I'm glad you joined us for the FNSI!!
