Painful FNWF

Well, last night was my first Friday Night with Friends.  Early in the night I went walking into our bedroom without turning on the light, and stubbed my toe badly on a chair which isnt usually there.  It is so painful but…

If I wasnt signed to do FNWF I think I would have been in a sad and sorry crumpled heap of misery. Crying face But I couldnt do that, so I gritted my teeth,Don't tell anyone smile suffered the pain Sad smile , and carried on like a trooper.  Confused smileHere is the end result of my painful night.

All the pieces cut, and the applique pieces in place.  Now to stitch them down. 

In spite of my “terrible” injury, it was a very productive night.  I had forgotten how long it takes to prepare applique with such little pieces.

And thank you Cheryl for organising our very wonderful FNWF.  It is such fun.

My toe is badly bruised, swollen and a bit painful to walk around, but not as bad as it was last night.

I wonder if Harry will share?  No I dont think so.

Susan said...

Love the applique piece - I think you should have your own ice cream considering your injury - a bit of pampering goes a long way!

Hey Roomie, from very recent experience I have found out that you shouldn't ignore a very painful, swollen toe after you have knocked it - GO AND GET IT CHECKED OUT!!! was that loud enough for you? Go on, do it
lots of hugs
Miche'le
p.s. I do love your productive nights work though xx

Joy said...

Ouch!!! You poorthing!! Miche'le is right though, it might be wise to get it checked out. Love your stitching, what a trooper you are to keep sewing despite the pain ;o).
Big hugs

Jeanette said...

Hope your toe is better Marilyn. The hanging is cute. Hugs,xx.

Cheryll said...

Oh you poor thing!!! Still, you did very well playing with us all at FNWF I think. Under extreme conditions you managed a great block. :)

Love your applique! hope your toes is feeling better.

Michelle Ridgway said...

Ouch!!! Poor toe! I am glad you could still get your stitching done. Lovely applique. Yes the fun part is definitely not the preparations.
Hugs x

Allie said...

Oh you poor thing - be careful, I broke a couple of toes doing that. My son is sitting with his foot up right now, he fell on the ice a few days ago and his whole foot is a huge swollen bruise. I can't believe you got so much done with your foot hurting so badly. I LOVE that little quilt. Love love love. And love the cute little pic of Harry too! Yum, I wouldn't share either!

Anthea said...

oh no Marilyn, I hope it feels better really soon, sore toes are the pits!
You've made a great start to the Market Day Wallet, I have fabrics ready to start mine... at some point... !

You poor thing, but you did produce a wonderful project, take care of the toe..

Elyte said...

I like Birdhouse designs but I don't think that I have seen this one. It is going to be worth all the effort. Wishing your toe a quick recovery.

OUCH!.......that's gotta hurt, your stitching is really beautiful though.......I love the way Harry's eyeing you warily over the top of his cornet.

Quilt Kitty said...

Oh that is soooo painful. Good on you for keeping on with the applique preparation. It was well worth it, it is very cute. I imagine Harry did not share, not enough to do that - sorry! Tracee xx

Charlie and Wendy said...

I sincerely hope you're feeling better today. That is really a painful injury. Nevertheless you manage to make a wonderful project. I wonder what you could do if you weren't in pain.
Hugs,
Teresa

Val said...

Nothing hurts like a stubbed toe. You certainly managed to do some great sewing though. The appliqué looks fabulous.

Josie said...

I think you should get a special bravery medal for sewing with a stubbed toe. For doing a great job too. Love the little landscape. It's going on my 'to do' list ;o)

Anita said...

Hi Marilyn,
Oh you poor thing, I hope your toe is alright. It really does hurt big time when you stub your toe!! Just as well there was FNwF's on, it would've made you feel lots better. Nope....I don't think Harry is going to share! lol.
Cheers, Anita.

Helen said...

Hi Marilyn. Do you think you've broken your toe? I broke my little toe once and it hurt for months! On a brighter note, your applique is gorgeous. Well done!

Wendy B said...
