I have done very little stitching. When the injury was numb, fresh after the surgery, I managed to do a little work--I did have to pop the project into the q-snaps, but otherwise no problems stitching those two lengths of floss. Since the numbing medicine wore off (3 a.m. Saturday), I have had to stitch with my left hand. This has slowed me considerably. Everything has been moving slower. As with any injury or handicap, you (eventually) find ways to adapt, but you have to settle for working longer or harder for it. Typing, for instance. I have trouble with "ik," and can't hit u, i, or o with accuracy so I've been much slower of late. Still beats handwriting, which is just ridiculous...and people keep asking me to sign things.
I saw the doctor today and he
Thanks again for all your good wishes. Although my recovery will take a few months, I'll try not to abandon the blog. Keep writing because my stitching thrills will be coming vicariously for a while.
