You may remember that back in December I had a steroid injection into my thumb to try to repair my tendon. I had to continue to wear a brace for a week afterwards and I was getting really bored. I wasn't able to knit or stitch and really couldn't use my left hand much at all.
I started out slowly, doing a little cross stitching. Then I started using it a little more each day. I still haven't tried knitting, though I plan to soon, maybe this week. So far, there is only one position that causes pain, so I avoid that one. I did wake up the other night in pain. I must have twisted my hand somehow, so I've gone back to the brace at night. It prevents me from making a fist in my sleep.
I know I'll need surgery eventually. The doctor said the injection could last for six months or so. At that time I'll probably go ahead and have it fixed, but till then it's usable. Yeah!
Here are the two little pieces I stitched last week. They're called 'Giggles In The Snow' and were designed by Mirabilia. Marjie, I thought of your kids while I was stitching them.
