While there, I met up with another aunt, my physical therapist/painter/potter aunt, who inquired about my nifty thumb sling that obviously matched my attire. lol So after the dinner, we took that sling off and my aunt gave me some physical therapy exercises to do that should help. The exercises we practiced last night made a difference and so now I'm going to ask my doctor about physical therapy instead of the cortisone shot. I think because my PT aunt is also a crafter, she knows just how badly I want to be able to use my hand at full function.
Despite the fact that I got home really late last night, I just had to try out my hand. I made a fleece scarf last year that I never shared with you because it was a prototype and it wasn't quite what I had in mind. Well, actually it was, but I wasn't so nifty with the rotary cutters and my fringed effort was uneven, so I never showed the scarf. Well yesterday, prior to the dinner, I had decided to turn that fringed scarf into a cowl. And that's what I did when I returned home.
|I'm keeping this cowl for myself. I love topstitching! Plus this one is shorter because I cut off the fringe. It doesn't double loop.|
Then, this morning, I decided to use up the rest of my fleece cuts (from last year) to make two more cowls.
These were the fleece pieces that I didn't use when I made this scarf.
Needless to say that it felt sew (hee hee) good to do any kind of crafting, especially during this time of the year. I dare not crochet/knit before continuing the exercises and finding out if there is a PT in my area who can help me, but sewing, I can do!
