A quick sketch.....

I know, silly me!  It was a reflex action and I learned that my stay sharp knife was indeed....sharp. 
This happened on Monday and, with it being in an awkward spot, the wound is still sore and tender.
Ah well......it could have been worse and my lesson IS learned.

Love, light and peace

I do things like that all the time. You'd think I'd learn my lesson, but no, I don't seem to. It is such a reflex to try and catch something you drop. Just the other day I didn't catch something that I dropped, instead I accidently stabbed myself with my very sharp-pointy-nosed scissors. My finger was sore for days. Luckily, it was no worse than it was. We both need to be more careful, I guess! And if you learned your lesson, that's great. Apparently, i still have some learning to do!

Hugs,
Tamerie

Ouch!! Hope this was your non-dominant hand? I guess it says alot about how good your reflexes are, darn it!! Hope you heal up real soon!

MaryO said...

Ooh, Ow! I know that hurt. You'll soon learn to jump out of the way when you drop a knife!

Oooooooouuuuuuch! *healing thoughts for you*

Bettyann said...

oww ouch...yes the knife always wins...did that a month ago..small apple, big, pointy knife...take care..now is the fun to keep your hand dry lol

Rita said...

OMG!! *shudder* I am so leery of knives or anything sharp. Too many accidents over my lifetime--hehe! That sure does look like it is in a difficult spot to heal. I'm glad you didn't need stitches. Oh--be so careful with those artistic, loving hands of yours. Sending healing energy your way. :):)

Janet said...

I hate getting cuts of any kind....me and knives, just not a good thing. I hope your hand heals quickly. Be super careful next time.

Oh Serena , hope your cut heals soon! Kisses, kisses...:)

Julie said...

Oh boy, Serena! I hate these kinds of things...glad you are all basically still intact! No missing fingers! Yikes. Hang tight!!!

Hope the cut is better today. Great sketch.

I hope your injury is healing quickly Serena.

BumbleVee said...

ooh, ouch... make me go all twingly thinking about it...but, know exactly how that happens. Kind of like dropping the pickle jar and sticking out your foot to stop it before it hits the floor.....ohhhh... man.... that hurts..... and if you're lucky... you don't actually break your foot....

Serena Lewis said...

Thanks for all the sympathy.....it sure did hurt.

Vee, I have put my foot out to stop a heavy jar falling too and, yes, definitely a big OUCH on that score too.

Eden, it was my dominant hand unfortunately and was tender for a few days considering my hands are always in and out of water....harder to dry out and heal. Today (Sat. 3rd Apr) was the first day it felt much better.

That looks really painful, but a Stay Sharp knife obviously can't keep you from drawing!

Miss Robyn said...

hope the wound has healed by now xoxo

Meredith said...

Yikes, Serena! It even hurts to look at. I did something to my hand in almost exactly this position a few years ago, something quite dumb involving a butterknife, some frozen wax, and glass, and it is a sensitive spot on the hand, I know from experience. :( Hope it's getting better every day!
