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 :(

Here I Am!

No, friends, I haven't disappeared. It's just been a crazy, busy time. As you can see below, I have been tatting. Here are my holiday card additions, all ready to be mailed. Today is the last day of finals, grades are due on Tuesday, and I'll be having surgery on my elbow next Thursday, so the craziness continues. I miss all of you!
