Oh it was all going so well. I was catching up with the shenanigans in Ambridge and making great progress with the little Liberty blouse I’m making for Button.
Then on Thursday evening it was a sunny, if blustery evening, so I headed off to the park after school with the kids and the dog with the plan of blowing the cobwebs off us all.
Carter has recently returned from a 3 week training bootcamp which means he has much better manners. But he wasn’t socialised with other dogs as a pup and, to be honest, still gets ridiculously giddy around them. He’s like a teenage boy backstage at a Victoria’s Secret runway show….hasn’t the first idea how to behave!
So when a small puppy decided he simply had to play with Carter….well, Carter wanted to play too. Unfortunately in his messing he wrapped my hand in the lead and pulled.
My fingers felt broken, but thankfully weren’t. But all sewing and knitting was on hold for a few days. The bruising is down now and I’m back in action!
I’ve just the wee buttonholes and buttons to sew. I’m planning to do them tomorrow. Because not only do I want to get this little top ready and move onto the next project…I want to find out what happens with Roy and his dispute with Elizabeth! And any Archers fans amongst you will know exactly how far behind I am.
I’ll be back soon with the finished article!
