This little piggy

Remember the children's story about the little pigs.  Well, one piggy went to market, one little piggy stayed home, one little piggy ate roast beef . . . . . .

And my next little piggy is BROKEN!  Swollen to at least twice its normal size and the loveliest (not) shade of purple.

I have a terrible habit of kicking off my shoes under my desk and tucking my feet under me when I am in middle of a big project.  I went down the hall to the copier in my sock feet and heard my phone ring.  I ran to catch the phone and BAM - caught my foot on the edge of the desk.   Stupid

Despite that unfortunate incident I got two big projects completed and submitted today. I think having those hanging over my head at work was stifling my creativity at home.   Since that little breakthrough I have picked up the hook again.  Plus the looming deadline of needing a new rug by February 10th was additional incentive.

So the countdown is on.  (And the throbbing continues)


  1. Oh Kim! Ouch! Must take it easy on those little piggies!
    Glad you got the projects done and can now concentrate on that wonderful looking little red bird you're hooking!
    Can't wait to see more!!

  2. Oh dear, sorry about that sore little piggy toe. If you didn't swear when that happened, you're a better person than me. Ouch... I hate that when that happens.

    I'm glad that you got those projects done and out of the way today so now you can concentrate on your charity rug.

    The little birdie looks very cute. Hope to have another peek at your rug soon. Hugs JB

  3. Goodness you are not having any luck with your feet lately! I think you are getting signs that you need to sit still! ;)

    Love the little birdie! (It is a birdie right? I don't trust my eyesight-to-brain function right now LOL!) I can't wait to see what you've come up with.

  4. Ouch! poor little piggie. Oh, I do love the look of that sweet little birdie, your looking mojo has returned! Hugs, Julie.

  5. Ouch..oink...ouch! You need deadlines? How about a teeny tiny heart rug.....for me! For no good reason whatsoever, I love valentines day!

  6. Ouch that is terrible, you got another project finished too? That is awesome and you started your project too. It looks really nice. I sure hope you didn't break your toe.
    Those bread rolls look awesome.

  7. OUCH! I'm cringing just thinking about it.
    Your new mat looks fun!
    Heal quickly!!!
    Hugs :)

  8. Go easy on the pigs, man. I've done that. And it really really hurts.

  9. I'll bet that piggy cried more than ah WEE WEE!! Ouchers.
    You mean I am NOT the only one who sits cross legged and half on her feet?? I live in socks and shoes in closet are oh so dusty. Ya well. Love your projects and I know you will git'r done by Feb 10th. Have a great week ahead!

  10. Ouch! I remember doing exactly the same thing a few years ago. Amazing how much it hurts isn't it? Hard to get an icepack on that piggy.

    Can't wait to see the rest of that mat.

  11. You poor thing! Ouch, indeed! I love the bird springy! I'm still embedded in unfinished Christmas projects...
    Hope you heal up quickly!

  12. Owwwwiiiiieeeeeeeeeeee Kim! I am so sorry about your little piggy, not as sorry as you are I am sure but I am feeling bad for you. I broke my big toe doing a sock sliding move into the fridge! Did they make you tape it to the next piggy? Take care Kim!

  13. ewww, ouch!!! Love the little bird!

  14. I bet you said more than: "WeWeWE" at your home! The rug is very cute too! Glad your creativity is on, but sorry the toe is out!

  15. Ouch those little toes are really full of pain when they get hurt. Be careful. sandie

  16. ouch my toe hurts just reading that. I hope it is better. I am getting caught up on your past post. I will tell you the strength in the women that I call friends are amazing. When we had David's health crisis they rallied around took care of my house and yard. Called and left us to be together.
    I am so blessed because all of these women are having life issues of their own but yet they dropped it and surounded me. while men can be very helpful to friends, women lead with their hearts.
