No Tatting for a While

Last Wednesday I had surgery on my left hand and wrist to take care of a carpal tunnel problem, a bone growth in my thumb and a cyst in my ring finger. Ick. All wrapped up for three days, it doesn't look too bad. Unwrapped, it's sorta ugly. The purple writing on my hand belongs to the doctor. He made notes so he'd know what to do when I was not awake to tell him. I had a red pen and wrote "yes" next to his notes. :) I guess it saves on errors!
Good thing I'm so right handed!
I'll be trying to get some things blocked and starched while it heals, so I can post pictures of those things. I also did a lot of work on my decorated jeans purse in anticipation of surgery. I only have a part of one quarter done, but it's really close to how I want it. I need to make some more butterflies and flowers. I'll be thinking of things I can post, anyway.

My best wishes to you in healing. I was attacked by a dog not long ago which led to a nasty hand injury that I have healed up from only recently. I do sympathize!

Ouch is right! I'm so sorry, but hope this will put an end to any problems so you will be able to tat away! Best wishes.
