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.
Tatting while listening to audio books is what I call relaxation. I get home from work, get dinner out of the way, then park myself in my favorite chair. I pick up my lap desk covered with shuttles, patterns, strings and beads, stick the earbuds in and say, "Checking out!" Nobody bothers me then -- until it's time to go ride the stationary bike, that is.
