It's been weeks since I've turned on my machine. The little sewing I've done has only been on the cross stitch pattern above.
I want to do more, but my hands won't let me. They started going numb in my sleep back in February. Night splints have helped, but the numbness and pain are too much to handle. I've been to the orthopedist and the neurologist, and it's confirmed: I have severe carpel tunnel in my right hand, moderate in my left. That means surgery. Soon. Like before Christmas. That also means no sewing for a while. : (
But I'm just looking forward to starting the new year with good hands (well at least 1 good hand as I can't do both surgeries at the same time). So the above may not look like a lot of work, but trust me, I consider it a major accomplishment.
