Following on from taking a tumble in the bathroom I managed to give myself a couple of very nasty burns with the squasher, otherwise known as an Elna press. First I touched the top of my hand against the plate when rearranging material and then turned around and pressed my elbow up against it. Despite running them for hours under cold water I still got some nice big blisters to show everyone. Unfortunately I've mananged to knock my elbow against everything and now instead of a nice neat blister I've got a huge supparating grossness. No fun at all.
To cheer me up MIL begged and pleaded with me to drive her to Sturminster Newton so she could have a wander round Hansons Fabric. Obviously I would have rather carried on sorting the huge pile of paperwork that hubby needs for his taxes but I was selfless and agreed to take her. I was actually very restrained and only bought things for immediate projects. A metre of fabric printed with very nice looking cabbages which will combine with a ton of fruit and veg themed squares to make something for my Dad and 3 quarters of black on white for a cute dog pattern that my friend bought for me in America. I don't 'DO' patterns or cute but it is very sweet. My boys are queueing up wanting it so I'm sure it will find a good home.
