Not sure why, but my left hand, especially around my thumb is extremely painful all the time. Makes no difference if I am using my hand or just sitting quietly watching TV without moving it. I went to see the doctor yesterday and he didn't seem to be all that concerned about it - ordered an x-ray and a blood test and told me to use Voltaren cream - but the fact is I can't use that hand much, and that is not a good thing for me.
I type all day at work, and I have been altering my typing so I don't have to use that thumb, same thing with knitting. I am holding my work completely different, so now I am more prone to dropping stitches.. perhaps it is a good thing I tend to knit a bit on the tight side.
I have my work table cleared off, with the intention of making some of my fairies for sale. But while I am on that subject, I found the cutest grandpa Faerie at the thrift store on the weekend. As usual I was there to drop off a load of stuff, and ended up buying more. I found an incredible stash of sewing notions that I will be able to use on my doll clothes and other projects...
Some porcelain heads and hands that I will turn in to Christmas ornaments:
And this wonderful large Faerie, who know is sitting in the sun room, watching over my indoor garden:
