monday monday...

...can't help that day.
today: a sick day. already.
what happened? 
last night i smashed my own finger,
(my precious finger, the one with the tendon hurt 
then healed a while back)
in the ups box. HARD. 
yep. it's nasty, but the tendon is intact. 
the cut/bruise
is right at the nail and tendon attachment.
 i need a distraction,
so here's some gold
 habu linen
 that i spun up
a while back-not today
 into a lovely thread
 slippery and strong
and ready to weave.
hopefully the finger will actually heal as quickly
as the swelling went out of it.
constant ice and ointment
are helping.

Oh Velma

What will you do without being able to use your hands? Heal quickly.
Lovely gold spun.

aimee said...

Sophie Munns said...

So painful Velma!
I'm feeling it as i read. Love the gold thread and the beautiful timber floors I might add. Lousy reason to be off work but nice to be home!

Velma Bolyard said...

thanks, sophie, i also acquired a cut on my index finger today! so that right hand needs a little t.l.c.

I found some of your lovely red blood on my kitchen floor after you left last night. Hope your finger feels better soon.
Love, Claudia

Nancy said...

Oh - ouch! Hope you heal very quickly. I've pulled a sick day too (asthma and more).
I love the gold on simple, yet profound.

Cait Throop said...
