Life happens....

 I did start the quilting, but have only spent time on it a couple or three times.  It is sort of slow going but it is fun.  It is not perfect by any means....not even close but I just enjoy the whole process.  

And the photo below shows my hand...the photo does not do it justice.

What happened you might ask.  Monday I decided to get the power washer out to wash the north side of the house and garage.   The north side of the house does not have much room between it and the fence, and I have hostas planted, plus the AC unit is there.  There  is just enough room and a bit more to pull the power washer through.  I did not start it before I got it situated.  I got the hose connected to it and the water turned on, and tried to pull start it.  I was standing in such an awkward position and about the second time I pulled the starter I somehow managed to jam my left hand into the fence post.  

I kept working but had to be careful with it.  I did not notice my hand swelling, till I turned the power washer off and got everything put away.  i was lucky enough to still be able to use soap to slip my wedding band off.  

I have never had the palm of my hand get is kind of purplish blue.. but fading.  None of my hand ever really got dark black/purple/blue type of bruise, but had had a gray/purplish shade to it.  LOL  It is slowly getting easier to live with.  I have not hurt it bad one single time today.  


I just have to share a pic of Kitty Soft Paws that Lorelei sent me resently.  Isn't she beautiful...and she is just as sweet as she is pretty.

I will leave you with a funny little video...the baby is cute but not all the video is also about the dog...
