    I have been down and out for the last 9 days because I cut the top of my index finger off while working in the kitchen. Although it is still in a splint I managed to cut some pieces and sew them up into a block and sew a few strips up to be ready to cut. But I have to take my time and get a little creative on how to do things but it sure beats drinking Long Island Teas and watching SpongeBob!

    This is a UFO I had from last year that I started on and ran out of fabric and of course the shop that I normally go to burned to the ground and I have been unable to find the color until last month.

    But trying to treadle with a bum finger sucks!!

    If I had to watch Sponge Bob for 9 days, I'd be tempted to cut off my ears!!

    Heal quickly. :)

    Ouch! It's kinda hard to quilt without using your index finger. Glad you're able to tho.

    Remember, when you get some done, we want to see pics!

    Hope the finger feels better.

    I'm sorry to hear about your finger...and your lqs. I'm sorta in the same boat with you right now. I've just today gotten a cast put on my right hand and cannot hold a rotary cutter or scissors and I wanted to get started on a pinwheel/squares black/white/red quilt for my son. Unfortunately I have no one to help me out with cutting. If I had that I might be able to try some sewing...but in the mean time I am stuck watching whatever comes up on the tv. :( I just hope that 6 weeks goes fast for me :( Good luck with your finger

    sorry about your finger...my brother had several chopped off in a flywheel accident (he's a mechanic). He had to have microsurgery to keep a couple in place, although they don't work so well. He lost one completely - all on his left hand, and since he's a righty, that's probably better.

    Keep sewing, and don't let it get you down. Post pix of the quilt!!
