I am in such a withdrawl (abstinenser in Danish, lol), I so desperately want to tat something, no matter what it is just anything, roflol. Stitches got out Monday but it is not yet good enough to try and grab a shuttle and make rings and chains. Oh, it is soooo hard to be so patient, usually I am able to be patient but not this time, I think I have run out of patience by now, lol. Anyone know where I can buy some more of that???
It is a comfort to know that there are so many out there thinking of me, so a big thank you to all those who have posted a comment here on my blog, at least I am able to write her. But anything fiddly like zippers and buttons are hard to handle, and don't even think of shoelaces.

I can not write here without posting a picture. Sometime back I showed my inherited bone shuttles, the picture above is my wooden shuttles and they all have a story. The "ICT 2005" shuttle was one we had made when we celebrated the first year of online chatting (International Chat Tatters). The "Neil Keats" shuttle is the one I won at the Whittlesea Show in 2006 for my variegated and white square doily (early posting on the blog).
The 2 shuttles to the right are from my visit to Australia in 2006, the Kangaroo one I bought at the NSW Guild meeting in Sydney that Ginny and I attended and the one in the lower right corner is one that Jenni and Maureen had made to celebrate the 4 of us meeting each other in Brisbane.
I do try to tat with all of them once in a while and they are such nice memories to have from some very special occasions.
Now I will go back to lurkdom, and even if I can not tat yet I do vist blogs and drool over the stuff you do and dream of what I am going to do in a week or two - perhaps.

Hang in there. I am so sorry you are having to go through this. I know it would be very hard on me if I couldn't tat. At least you have lots of pretty pictures to look at on blogs and time to plan your next projects. The shuttles are lovely.

You have my complete understanding as a couple of years ago I broke my left wrist, and it really was harder than I would have ever believed. The time will pass and
you will be more in love with your art than ever. I used the time to go through books and newsletters again. It's amazing how you forget
things you have in books. I also
made a list of what I was going to do when it was over, and when it was, went in a totally different direction! Here's wishing you a speedy recovery.
