My trigger thumb surgery went well. It was really debilitating to have your dominant hand bandaged up so you can’t use it and also can’t get it wet for 8 days after surgery …sigh… those were the l o n g e s t 8 days EVER!!
But I got the stitches out finally and am healing nicely and can use my hand again. It’s still swollen and can’t do allot of firm grasping with it and no cutting with scissors… so still not sewing.
But I have been keeping busy, though! Do you have lots of quilting magazine subscriptions like me? What do you do with all the quilting magazines you collect? I have about 8 magazine subscriptions which adds up to stacks of magazines laying around taking up valuable fabric storage space, right?
So, I go through all my magazines about every 6 months and rip out quilt and project patterns I want to make one day.
I slide them into clear plastic sleeves, then file them in three ring binder notebooks divided into categories like
easy, medium/hard, appliqué, scrap, paper pieced, modern, pre-cuts, decor, wearables, etc…
So, although I can’t cut and sew yet, Yogi and I have done a bit of cleaning out and reorganizing in the sewing room…
well, at least I have!!
(Zzzzzzzz says Yogi!!)
