Bad day at the office

Mosaic ball 1

I’ve had to come in from my workshop because I’ve just had an accident.  There I was sitting listening to the radio and cutting the next batch of petals for my mosaic lantern ball when I smacked my hand against the sharp edge of a killer flower.   There followed what looked like a scene from Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Luckily my Handsome Trusted Assistant (HTA) was there on hand (excuse the pun) with a bottle of superglue and stemmed the flow of blood.   My finger is quite sore and as I don’t want to bend it for the time being I’ve come indoors.  I’m not very good at wasting time so I’m a bit annoyed that I can’t get on with what I wanted to do today.

In contrast HTA is having a great day and is nearing completion on making his first overdrive guitar pedal. He has finished all the electronic gubbings inside and is now putting the finishing touches to the artwork.   He was last seen with an acrylic spray can in his hand and full face mask, making noises Darth Vadar would be proud of.


I love the fact that the led lights up in the shark’s eye!  More pictures to follow when it’s all assembled.

Anyway, tomorrow is another day and all being well I’ll be back at my worktop snipping away at another daisy or something.

EDIT.  As I’m typing this my HTA has just come in to tell me that he has just been stung by something in the garden and it has left a pulsating sting in his arm (which he thinks is quite cool)!   Is it Friday the 13th by any chance and nobody has told me?!?
