I am sitting here typing with one hand. First day I have managed to even get out of bed and have a shower with a plastic bag wrapped around my arm and hand. We arrived home from our trip to Australia last Sunday morning, and I was advised I could have the operation on my thumb joint, the following Thursday morning. Thinking it might be a long wait if I turned them down, I said yes thats great.
Only problem was my sister was arriving from down country the same day, for a week of shopping therapy. Unfortunately she doesn't sew, so its days of clothing shopping. The operation went well, but the recovery was abit rough to say the least. The pain relieving medication only succeeded in making me very nauseous. Anyway all seems to be O.K. now and I just have to be patient.
Hopefully by Thursday 31st I'll be more lively, as I am booked into a class with Gail Garber from USA. Its a 2 day class called "Flying Colours", but at this stage I might only be taking paper and pencil etc and not my machine, as I have a half plaster cast on my arm and thumb up to my elbow. Fortunately its my left hand.
I had a great day as usual in Brisbane with my dear friend Julie who once again gave me a lovely gift of 2 pincushions, and a little purse and took me patchwork shopping. Being with the family for 9 days it was hard to do this, so my time with Julie was lovely.
I am 3 weeks behind with my Civil War Blocks, so as soon as I can cut out and get the machine going, I'll have to get on with them.
Sorry no pics today, as I'm on the laptop and its too hard!:-))
Bye for now
