I have been an even worse blogger now that we are back in the UK than I was in France. This time I have a good ( or bad, depending on how you look at it ) reason. I haven't been able to type for a few days. Actually, I haven't been able to do very much at all. You see, I was quite inspired by Petite Michelle Louise's Grey Dey Thursdeys. It got me thinking about all the beautiful shades of grey/gray which I hadn't really paid that much attention to in the past and I just had to dye some French linen and vintage French laces in shades of grey/gray to have more of that elegant colour :-). I was chuffed to bits with the results. So much so that I decided to put a few grey/gray kits together for my Etsy shop, and I had so much fun finding all kinds of embellishments. And then it came to cutting the linen. Lovely 100 year old linen. Out came the cutting mat, the rotary cutter and the large quilting ruler. And thats when it happened, just a split second of inattention, and instead of slicing through layers of French linen, I rotary cut through the side of my index finger instead and took a slice off. Nuff said,eh? It is only just now that I can bear to put the bandaged finger to the keyboard keys.
I am going to save the pics of the lovely grey/gray stuff until next week for Michelle's Grey Dey Thursdeys linky party, but I couldn't have a post without any pics at all, could I? So here is just one little teaser -
Oh well, just one more then, lol -
Off to have a cup of tea and rest that poor abused finger of mine again.
