A Dog of A Week



I know I am late with a post and I do apologize (Frances!) LOL, but it has been one of the worst weeks ever.  Daisy kindly agreed to re-create my mood in a picture.  I promised myself I would never blog when things are going badly because whining isn’t particularly pretty, but indulge me.  😉

I wasn’t feeling well and then my middle finger became numb and lost all feeling after the marathon task of trimming the trapunto work on my quilt.  It feels as though I have my finger bandaged and I hate that feeling.  A strange phantom sensation which drives me even more nuts. Try typing on a keyboard without feeling your finger and some interesting text appears that is unrecognizable as English.  It is futile.

There is some other stuff most recently that I won’t dignify here, and you have my bad week wrapped up with a bow.  So my bad week is your good fortune and I will give you all a free pattern in honor of my unfortunate week.  All I ask is that copyright be respected as this is for your personal use and enjoyment.

I do hope your week is going well and I am off to try and tackle the final trimming of the trapunto work with a finger that is completely useless.

  1. Thank You for the pattern it is realllllllllllllllllly pretty . Sorry you had such an aweful time this week . I hope your finger recovers soon. Sometimes it just helps to gripe when you have had it , so we are always here to listen ! I was wondering if you had gotten swallowed up in your project ! Was it the siccors that did you in ?

  2. You are welcome Boop! The problem is the design is really intricate so there are these teeny tiny places to cut away and the postion of the scissors (small Dovo Lace scissors) press on a nerve and over a period of time, the finger goes numb. This would happen with any scissors due to the finger/scissor position and intricacy of the cut work. The feeling will come back..eventually. LOL

  3. Thank you so much for the beautiful pattern. Sorry about your bad week and your numb finger. Daisy is a real cutie! I have a soft spot in my heart for pugs.

  4. Your applique rose pattern is exquisite – as is all your work! Please take care of that hand though – you have such a gift with needlework. No doubt that is your body’s way of telling you to step back and take time to enjoy that beautiful rose.
    Thank you for sharing.

  5. Hope things are better for you! It must be very frustrating having no feeling! Thank you so much for the beautiful pattern and all your wonderful blogs!
