Well it was going to happen sooner or later. My first serious macrame injury. Last week I worked on a macrame wreath to hang on the front door. On Saturday morning, I was trimming the fringe when... SNIP! I cut a nice triangle in my left index finger. I did not need to look at it to know I probably needed stitches. So Lefty and the kid dropped me off at Five Star Urgent Care and went to the bookstore. There was no wait, and I was seen right away. The nurses who tended to me and stitched me up were all so kind. The LPN who stitched me up asked if I would go back to knotting when I got home. Probably, I said.
I didn't. The numbing agent was wearing off and my finger was throbbing. My wreath would have to wait... until Sunday.
So on Sunday, I finished the wreath, adding a few floral elements for a beautiful finish.
A few weeks ago I found on Pinterest a rope trivet made with larks head knots around an embroidery hoop. I had some clothesline I wanted to use up, and I always have a few embroidery hoops around. So last night while watching Fear the Walking Dead I whipped up a couple of trivets.
who am I?
modern punch is me, Becky, mom of a kid and a dingo, wife for 20 years. I grew up on the Florida coast watching rockets launch from my backyard. Now I live in the beautiful Finger Lakes amongst the wonderful weirdos and waterfalls.
