Hi Everyone,

My elbow surgery went well, and I am beginning to mend. I am sleeping a lot and feeling nauseous now and then. It's just part of the deal with strong pain meds. The only needlework I'm able to manage so far is some very slow knitting on my knit-aroud loom. I am having serious tatting withdrawal. I've only shuttle-tatted do far, but I have a set of needles and directions. Do you think it would be possible to maneuver the thread enough by holding one hand steady and working with the other? I am completely unable to use the shuttle for now :(

Hmm depends on which hand. your needle holding hand might be able to stay steady. Can't hurt to try....(well, in your case it might!)

:-) Wishing you a speedy recovery!

I'd suggest watching a good comedy or two and hold the shuttle in your hand while watching. The comedy (or whatever genre you prefer) might keep you distracted enough from the tatting craving and the shuttle in your hand can be comforting, like a worry stone. Wishing you a speedy recovery!
