And now for a change

Despite a black silicon splint I have managed to make progress.  Reverse stitching has been frustrating though and so I have decided this piece will go to Time Out.  
My physiotherapist tells me that next Tuesday we can celebrate a separation from the splint and then she will give me a stress ball to squeeze and thereby strengthen my hand.   I could have done with stress ball in the last five weeks!  Anyway I will forgo stitching until then and meanwhile spend evenings poring over sorting through some boxes from the stash cupboard.   If I can't stitch easily I can still dream big!   I feel the need for something other than cross stitch so watch this space!

  1. That's great news :) I'm sure without the splint you'll be back with the crafting in now time. Until then, a little dreaming might be just the right thing to do!

  2. Good to hear about your progress on the medical front. Yes, some projects need to be shelved; there is no reason to spend a lot of time reverse stitching. Dream big, and then pick a nice little project that is sure to strengthen your hand rather than strain it.

  4. Wonderful news that the end of splint time is nearing! Stash sifting is a fairly good alternative when one can't stitch - looking forward to seeing/hearing about what you have in mind next.
