Oh so slowly

Sometimes we think time is running so quickly but that is not my problem at the moment because I think it is going so SLOWLY. I have to admit that I miss my tatting tremendously but I at least have to wait 2 weeks or more, :-(
If you look to the right here you'll see why it is completely out of question to even think of trying to tat. With this huge bandage it will take some time to get it working again I am afraid.
A friend of mine have just returned home from Kazakstan and Uzbekistan this week and he went to 7 stores over there before he found this book for me.
I have been told it is called "Macrame and Frivolite" and there are a couple of designs I will try one day, if I am able to figure out the patterns because they are not drawn in the usual manner and I can not read Russian at all. But anyhow I will try and maybe my friend will have to help me even though he does not know anything about tatting.
But it was kind of him to bring it home to me and maybe I can send a booklist with him next time.

Your poor hand! I hope you will be feeling better soon. That was very nice of your friend! The Russian tatting book looks very intriguing. I hope that time will pass more quickly for you and pray that you will heal soon and be tatting in no time at all.

Know just how you feel as I broke
my wrist, then later on my right
little finger. Makes it all the better when you are o.k. again, a
real blessing to be able to tat.

Hope you are feeling better soon! Just don't over do it when you can tat again, we don't want to see you bandaged back up. That book looks very interesting. I can't wait to see what you make from it.

I know how you feel! I had surgery to my right wrist last September (2007) but it has healed brilliantly and I am tatting much more than ever before. It will all come good in the end!

Oh I sure hope you heal quickly. My sister had that surgery before and I know how hard it is not be able to use your hand.

I took a look at your blog and you have the most beautiful work! It's so lovely and romantic looking.

Hugs,
Joanne
