Oops! I Slipped!
I found some of my mini gourds that needed cutting... As you know, I switch directions quite easily. I decided to sit down and cut a few.
The ones with the curved edges have to be cut by hand with an Exacto knife....Very carefully.
I was not paying close enough attention and zipped into the side of my left thumb. At least it was the one that I use the least. I can even type without it!
Anyway, I decided that the fates wanted me to keep going on the roof of the Tudor Wall House. So after bandages and disinfectant, I changed course once again.
I started on the biggest part first and by the time I got to the end, the beginning was nice and dark.
Just look at the difference! The stain isn't dry yet and it is already looking good.
I turned the roof upside down so that the stain could get up under the overlapping shingles. I don't want any shiny spots beneath the edges.
This is just seconds after I finished the painting on the stain. It works very fast.
I am just sitting here watching stain dry now. I will show you the final results tomorrow.
For today, I think that I will behave myself for the rest of the day and do what is expected. No more gourds....
Maybe I will just follow Tessie's sage advice and "Tend to my knitting". I don't need thumbs for that. At least not the left one.
See you tomorrow.
