Planning Ahead

I promise I'm not going to whine in this post. Due to my left hand being out of commission for the season, my crafting projects have fallen behind schedule. I can't finish the knitted gifts so my friends will get a little note telling them to please wait. I had started a Christmas cross stitch and was making fast progress on it. I was determined to finish it, so I did. I had all but the reindeer done, so each evening I've worked on it, one handed. It's slow and awkward but last night I finished it.
I'm looking forward to the time when my hand is fixed and I'm back in business, so I've done a little shopping to keep my spirits up. This is a collar kit. All the black plastic things are fasteners for adjustable collars.
Here's the first ribbon webbing I've ordered. It should make cute springtime collars for a couple girls.
I found this ribbon, but it's too delicate for collars. I'll use it as trim on some sewing projects.
I plan to be ready to sew in time for the hockey playoffs, so I found Bruins ribbon for collars.
Then I found a great sale on some bruin fabric for the dogs. The black is flannel for jackets and the yellow is cotton for bandanas.
Next week I see the doc and I'm really hoping he can do something to fix this mess and let me get back to the doing the things I enjoy.

Wow you're a very talented person. We were wondering whether lasering your hand and arm would help. My dad gets his elbows done because he injured them carrying heavy stuff and he's way better now. Here's a link to an old post when my other vet and chiropractor lasers me https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=3340418788516155910#editor/target=post;postID=9107888360870648860;onPublishedMenu=posts;onClosedMenu=posts;postNum=77;src=postname

Not being able to stitch or knit or crochet is torture. Hope you are well very very soon.

I am trying to even figure out how to cross stitch with one hand... Love the collar ideas! You are so very talented. Paws crossed that you're soon two-handed again.
