Lizzie Kate Month - Week 3

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all of the nice comments and well wishes.  I did go see the orthopedic surgeon last Tuesday.  I have
De Quervain's Tendinosis
De Quervain's tendinosis occurs when the tendons around the base of the thumb are irritated or constricted. The word "tendinosis" refers to a swelling of the tendons. Swelling of the tendons, and the tendon sheath, can cause pain and tenderness along the thumb side of the wrist. This is particularly noticeable when forming a fist, grasping or gripping something, or when turning the wrist.
Anatomy
Two of the main tendons to the thumb pass through a tunnel (or series of pulleys) located on the thumb side of the wrist. Tendons are rope-like structures that attach muscle to bone. Tendons are covered by a slippery thin soft-tissue layer, called synovium. This layer allows the tendons to slide easily through a fibrous tunnel called a sheath.
Any swelling of the tendons and/or thickening of the sheath, results in increased friction and pain with certain thumb and wrist movements.


I'm having minor surgery done tomorrow and won't be able to stitch or crochet for 2 - 3 weeks.  In fact I haven't stitched in the last week I have been doing jigsaw puzzles.  I strongly urge all of you to see a doctor if you have any pain in your wrist or thumb.  This has been going on for about 8 weeks and it is very very painful.  You can go HERE to learn more about it and see what he is going to do.  (Easier than me trying to explain it.)

I did work on a different piece for the third week.

Lizzie Kate Month - Week 2

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all of the nice comments.

I have made a little progress the last week on my projects.  Not so much the last 2 days so not sure if I will have anything to show next week.  Its getting harder to stitch with my stupid hand.  I see the orthopedic doctor next Tuesday.  Next month is my birthday.  I have a couple ideas in mind.  Work on a different Clouds Factory piece each day and/or start a new piece each day.  Just depends on what the doctor does.

Hi Blogger Friends.  As you can tell by the title - Lizzie Kate sorta won.  It was a tie so I broke it.

First I thought I would show you what I worked on in July.

Mad Hatter - I had to stop for a while.  I had major burn out on all of that dark blue.
