THE MUSICAL TATTER

Where There's A Will . . . .


Well, I have accomplished something! Here is a picture of my first one-handed tatted flower. I did cheat a little--I used my teeth to hold the thread tight. Oh, yes, you can see my fashionable cast, too. My artistic daughter is in the process of designing my one-of-a-kind cast. She is not done yet. When she is, I will definitely post a picture.

Actually, there will be two casts. I found out Thursday that I will have surgery this next week to add a metal plate in my wrist. I smashed all the bones much like Humpty Dumpty--so my doctor says. I told him that I was supposed to go on vacation in a week. He then said, "Do you want to be able to use your arm again, or do you want to go on vacation?" I guess you know my response.

Ahh! Another member of the metal plate in the wrist club! Mine's the left wrist, and yours is the right. Maybe if we got together we could commiserate regarding our injuries!

Good job on the tatting! I wasn't able to do that much for quite a while. Of course, I'm a big baby when it comes to pain. I hope your surgery goes well. I'll be thinking about you!

Ah, I guess you want to use your arm! So, you learned how to tat with the arm thing going on. I probably would've done the same thing, LOL!

You are quite a determined lady! Just don't over do it. I'd have to see you not be able to tat at all. Sorry you have to have surgery. Hope it goes well and your recovery is short.
