A start

This favourite bookmark was the one I decided to do as the first tatting after the break. It is done now and isn't perfect but it is a start. Hopefully I will be able to do a couple of things for Christmas now even though I can only tat a couple of rings and chains at a time.
It is not easy for me to tat yet, I have a problem with bending my wrist and also 1-2 fingers. It's taken a lot longer than expected this time and it is not only a question of age but not sure what else it is caused by. It is a pain when you can not use your hand properly after 8 weeks and it also hurts. It is so annoying but I do hope to be able to tat something bigger again one day.

Take it slow and easy. 8 weeks seems like along time, but it's not really when your body is healing.

This is a very beautiful bookmark. Can I ask where you found this pattern?

So sorry to hear that it is still a struggle to tat. Your bookmark turned out beautifully regardless of the difficulty. You can't tell by looking at this pretty little bookmark that your hand/wrist is healing from surgery!

Oh, Susanne! I have broken my wrist and also have the eight week "splint and no working" order!
Doesn't it seem a long long time?
Well done for getting back on form.
