A bit Heath Robinson but

it works.

I grabbed the car keys out of the key cupboard in a rush and somehow managed to hook my finger into one of the hooks as I dragged out the keys. For a finger this is deep . I felt the end of the hook scrape the bone. Big ouch! about a third of the pad at the top of my finger flapped loose. Lots of blood and swearing. Found the steari strips and one of those new fangled band aids which seal a wound. Then DH thought it should be immobilised. So a lollipop stick sawn in half, and I have a splint of sorts with an ordinary bandaid holding it in place. I suppose I won't get any stitching done this week....
It, like the burn didn't hurt too much but it does now. It's throbbing for England....


  1. Oh my goodness.......I hope it heals quickly and painfree.
    YEP, let it rest for a few days!

  2. I can feel your pain.
    I hope it heals quickly and that the pain subsides.

  3. YOUCH! That sounds painful and entirely like something I would do. I hope it feels better soon.

  4. Gosh that sounds very painful...hope you have had a tetanus shot recently...and hope it heals ok. (((hugs)))

  5. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacck!!!!!

    ::runs screaming from keyboard::

    i'm sorry! i hope you're on the mend.

    Michele sent me your way.

  6. OOps! That sounds extremely painful.

    Hope it heals quickly.

  7. Ouch! I hope the pain subsides soon. What will you do with all your stitching time?

  8. Hope you heal quickly Sally! Just a word of caution, are you in date for tetanus? and if the plaster is all the way round your finger, check to make sure it's not getting too tight, and that your finger tip still has full sensation and no pins & needles.

    Nice dressing though, very neat!

  9. Ouch, and a few swear words for the cause...... I am wishing you quick healing as well, you poor thing, no stitching, get out your design book.... Hugs, Ronda K Beyer

  10. Why do things always happen to the dominant hand? I am assuming you are right handed and this injury will hinder your marvelous stitchery. Speedy recovery. Allow yourself time to rest.
