Another Quick Update

I have internet at home now but won't be up to much for the next week or so as I had my first bookbinding accident yesterday. I was cutting board on my mat cutter yesterday and somehow left thumb got in the way.... I'm left handed....

I've got 4 stitches, a cut nerve, and a lot of choice words- but with my dominant hand out of the action I'm not up to much. Which is a large disappointment because I have a very large order folio order that needs to be worked on, which is what I was doing when I tried to take my thumb off. Maybe in a day or two I can get a teaser shot of the cloth swatches and paper together, I can't believe how perfect of a match I got and how well I think it suits the photographers personality. However that will have to wait until I've got at least a semi functioning second opposable thumb :)

Am so sorry to learn of your accident. I really enjoy reading your blog so felt the need to commiserate! Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Did they at least use the coptic stitch when they patched you up?

Oh dear! Sorry to hear it. Hope you mend quick.

Thanks everyone!
I wish they would have used the coptic stitch, instead I have some uneven black knots....

As far as my thumb goes it's on the mend, I almost am to the point where I don't have to wear a band-aid on in 24/7. However in general I am a slow healer so it will probably be another week before I'm back in good shape.
