It will be 14 weeks tomorrow since I broke my wrist and I will tell you truthfully it has been a struggle in more ways than you can imagine , you never realize what you have until it is taken away and not having the use of my right hand has not been easy but I knew I had to persevere to get back to normal. I am far from that yet BUT and I emphasize that But I am improving , slowly but surely . I am not a quiter so a week or more ago I seen a post by Dolores about a free crazy quilting class and I inquired and signed up , crazy , maybe, but the way I looked at it if I dont at least try I can never regain my hand coordination so sign up I did. I gathered my supplies first ....
Kathy of Shawl Designs has set up for the participants of this class . Once I posted this Kathy sent the next step by email and last night it took me about one hour to cut the paper templates apart , geez it hurt ...
This morning I had the task of taking those templates and cutting them from fabric , ouch again but with determination and slowly but surely they were all cut using my rotary cutter that has sat idle all these months . Next task was to sew these together , almost painless , yeah!!
Dolores for getting me back on track , I have a long way to go yet but this is in the right direction and their is a smile on my face .
I think the most important lesson I learned from this break is to appreciate what you have , you never know when things can change and it is a long road to recovery both physically and mentally . Also use a step stool not a chair ;-)
Thanks for stopping by and come back soon to see my progress.
