Probably because she called me a trooper. ;-p
Also probably because she was soooo gentle with me when cleaning off all that blood... and while telling me that I won't be sewing or quilting for a week or two. I think she knew that would be the more painful part!
Oh... ya wanna know what stupid thing I did?
Managed to cut off the side/end of my finger (including a chunk out of the side of the nail bed) with my rotary cutter while cutting a piece of batting for the purple quilt that I am making for a friend to take to chemo treatments.
Ding-dang-dumb thing to do.
Just really glad I reacted so quickly and did not get blood on the fabric.
...may there be mercy and a fast healing so quilting can be resumed!
