FNSI - Cut Glass Dish

Tonight I happily attacked the cut glass dish for my Spinster quilt (AKA Farmer's Wife Quilt).  I've been dreading doing this block, with its many little HSTs and I decided that FNSI would be the perfect night to do it.

Cut Glass Dish
The story for cut glass dish is as old as time itself and involves life threatening injuries* and repeated mocking of the person with the life threatening injuries.  Last spring, my dear friend Catherine threw out her garbage only to slice her wrist open on some broken glass hidden away in the bag.  (Sure, Catherine, good story).  She needed stitches and a bandage and the constant pestering that comes from friends who want to make sure that the cut was actually accidental and not a desperate cry for help. But don't take my word for it, go to Catherine's blog, on my honor, and read her version of events.  The posting is very funny and filled with drama and calzones.  Just, be warned.  If you are remotely squeamish about stitches, stop scrolling down when Catherine tells you to stop scrolling down.  But, why would you, because these are Catherine's stitches and very important.  I also encourage you to explore the blog a bit, which is actually not just Catherine's blog but is written by her and her lovely sisters (Hi, Christine!).  I think you'll agree the sisters would approve of the little animals I put in Catherine's block.

*The injuries were probably not actually life threatening, but maybe they were........
