previously on The grey tail: I worked on my very first JABC felt pincushion. BaBa approved.

WARNING. kind of gross pictures coming up.
one morning, during the last month of summer, I found BaBa playing with a pack of piadine. when the game got a little too harsh, I decided to take them away from him. bad idea, being him originally from Emilia Romagna, were piadine are traditional.
I moved too soon, he was so lost in this he didn’t realize what I was doing, .. and my finger got stuck between the piadine and his fang.
at first I felt a strong, sharp pain, then a stream of blood came out. I used an ice pack and Betadine to disinfect the wound. BaBa was so surprised when he felt the finger, he jumped away and came to see what had happened when I had my finger under cold water.
anyways, it didn’t hurt at all. it just looked awful and in real need for antibiotics. I had it checked by a couple of pharmacists and a doctor, they all agreed I wouldn’t loose it. 😉
after a few pills and some greasy ointment I had to apply twice a day it came back to its usual state, pregnancy over. sorry devil. 😀
the same day my dad was stung by an insect while riding his bike, urgent care doctors prescribed a few drops and cream. lucky day, uh? – of course it was a monday. it’s always mondays.
of course I had to take a break from stitching. a real bummer. but it’s all in the past, as our days at Granny’s. check out what we’ve been up to. 🙂
and finally, some stitching. Mary Wigham will take forever to see her end, that’s for sure.
I chose to stitch this on 40ct. Lentil linen and cotton threads all handmade by Nina (Apricot, Asbury, Brown Rust, Peach Sorbet, Prune, Malawi, Spring Grass, Pearl, Old Jeans, White Sheep, Clay, Butter Squash, Teal, Onyx, Moss, Hibiscus, Nougat, Old Lace, Clementine, Cigar, Caribbean, Champagne). here you see Brown Rust and Teal.
