and the bottom of my heart! Thank you for all your sweet comments. I would love to respond to each one individually but at the rate I am typing it will take about 6 weeks and hopefully by then the cast will be off. OMG if this cast isn't off in 6 weeks I will have to attack it with my rotary cutter. So have you picked up on my intense dislike of this cast? Subtle I ain't! Monday and Tuesday I had a lot of pain. Wednesday morning I went back to the orthopedic office and begged them to make the hole around my thumb bigger. My thumb was purple! Well it turns out it was purple not from lack of blood flow but because it is bruised - badly! However the larger opening does feel better.
So it was less than 48 hours and I was going stir crazy and there were several errands that needed to be taken care of and my son had a doctor's appointment - so I drove. I will not be doing the expressway.
Thursday I had to try doing something crafty. I was having withdrawal! I did get this block sewn together but it took hours and by the time I finished my wrist was throbbing. I probably over did it!
So I tried knitting -result - I can do it but it is also awkward, slow and painful.
Onto cross stitching - not as bad - and I remembered that I did still own a Q-snap frame which might facilitate the process. This is my attempt...
now this may be the least painful craft. At one time in my ancient past I owned a floor stand that I used for needlepoint. I searched the storage room which is an opening shot for "Hoarders:Buried Alive!" without success, but I did find one online for $35 including shipping- I've already ordered it. I figured it would be helpful and a small price to pay for my continued sanity, what little there is left of it.
In closing, Who knew putting on your underwear requires TWO HANDS??? Oh to be back in the 70's - skinny and braless!
Happy stitching from your whiny friend -
