Right? What HAS been going on? Not too much, sewing wise. I’ve actually been grounded from sewing and pretty much everything, including lifting ANYTHING, hand sewing, gardening, watering, you name it, I’ve probably been grounded from it.
I have tendonitis in my right hand, also called something like intersection syndrome(?). This is where the tendons intersect. I also have arthritis in the thumb joint. I really need joint replacement surgery but can’t have it until the tendonitis is healed. So . . . I rest. . . and go to physical therapy. Very frustrating to say the least, especially while wearing THIS!
I was able to complete the last few bindings for projects I needed to finish this summer so that is a good thing.
But obviously, I can still type – YAY! So I’m writing this, working on winter retreat plans, planning the beginning quilt classes that I’ll be teaching in the fall at the Elk Grove and Bloomingdale park districts and getting ready for my 2nd Annual Quilt Show in the Garden!
I’ve been collecting the quilts this week and am really happy with the RSVP’s coming in. It should be a fun day with friends, lunch and beautiful quilts. I am keeping my fingers crossed for good weather.
For now, I’ll do my hand and wrist exercises, keep up with the heating pad and look forward to the quilt show next week!
