Compo!


Who do I talk to about compo around here? I've been sewing in a frenzy all morning, and so far I've managed to burn myself with the iron, cut my hand with a rotary cutter and stick myself with pins! Sewing is a very dangerous sport.......

Oh dear, as part of the curly pops for sewing cheersquad I feel partly resposible. I will have to take out and insurance policy for compo immediately. I think a nice cup of tea may heal any ailments.

Shit I heard the workers compo officer is a bitch and the company has a bad rep for rarely paying out!

At least you didn't get distracted and stitch your finger with the Singer... Like I did once. That was an episode I find hard to admit to!

Have you filled out your Workplace Incident Form and submitted it to your supervisor?

Hoppo Bumpo said...

Sounds like you need to speak to the O.H.& S. committee. I hope the first aid officer was on hand to tend to the injuries!!

Wear your battle scars with pride Cam. I love a craft related injury.

Oh dear - better take a crafting break before you end up in hospital ;) Better go catch up on some of your old posts, been a while since I've looked at any blogs!

Nicola said...

Yip I think you need a break, go and have a cup of tea and a choccie biscuit.

I did manage once to burn my knee with the iron.

Jenny said...

Yes but look at the results-looking good-wounds and all!

Leni and Rose said...

Oh, that iron! I burn myself every time...it's rather annoying actually!

I'm only going back to sewing if a home economics crisis requires a lot of pairs of happy pants to be crafted quickly...

Amazing how much injury results in a room full of soft goods...

Belinda said...

Sorry to hear you are in the wars! Sewing is a most dangerous sport but oh so satisfying! Lovely work!

Stacey said...

Sewing is a bit of an extreme sport for me too. I injure myself every time.
Good thing knitting is much less risky - although a I do have a callous on my thumb caused by over doing it.
I love the orchid - just beautiful

I'm just cracking up at all the comments you've received on this one. Classic! Hope the burns and cuts heal nicely.

Fantastic fabric in this pic - just totally in love with the spotty binding. What are these creations? Are they going in the new shop?
