Busy Is A Good Thing...Right?

Today is my Sister-in-laws 21st, and although we done the party thing on the weekend, we are having a Birthday dinner at our house for her....and I have busted my finger! I was hit last night with a 3kg medicine ball at Bootcamp which came hurtling at me from across the room. My poor finger is black and blue and I can hardly bend it - but I am tough!
These next few weeks are going to be crazy for me...so many orders and jobs to do as well as getting the market stall together etc. My cupboards are overflowing with fabric and notions for seasonal products (not as pretty as the one above though), and I seem to not have enough time in the day to cram it all in.

...I am happy though!
Nearly all of my new stockings have sold, I have loads of orders for more and all of my other Christmas goodies are walking out the shop (most aren't even getting to the shop). This is great and your support has been unbelievable.
I don't know how I will go sewing with a deformed and blue finger though..should be interesting!

  1. Ouch - poor thing.
    Hope the birthday dinner goes well.

  2. Take care Ness and I hope you can manage everything ....xv

  3. I don't think I have ever had a good experience with a medicine ball! Hope your finger heals quickly and you find a few more hours in your day.

  5. Busy is good....as long as there is a light at the end of the tunnel!! :)

  6. Busy is good! Hope your finger feels better soon.

  7. Just found your blog and I love it. Take care of your finger, I have stoved my with a basketball, but a medicine ball is so much bigger! OUCHIE! Mend quickly and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  8. Ouch! Sending you healing cyber wishes!

  9. Oh dear, Ness. Lets hope that it doesn't hold you back. So pleased that your products are flying out of the door. XXXX

  10. Another good reason why exercise is bad for you! 'Be active, take the stairs.' oh yeah sure! You & I are a couple of battle scarred warriors at the moment Ness, could Mic take over the sewing?

  11. See, now that is exactly why I don't exercise! I suggest bed rest. Make the husband sew.

    And, busy is wonderful thing -- good for mind and body. Well, except, perhaps, for fingers! When busy doesn't work out -- I suggest bed rest.

    I'm so glad to hear that your shop is a smashing success!

  12. Hi Ness,

    Just a quick "call in" today. I'm really happy that things are working out for you with your ideas for your business and if I'm ever in your area I will visit your stall for sure. Enjoy the rest of your day and I hope your finger feels better soon!

  13. Dear Ness, I always figure having too much to do is better than not having enough. I do hope your finger is better soon. Lee :)
