You see I have been doing hand therapy for about 8 weeks. My fingers are moving, but still lots of stiffness, and some swelling keeps me from making a very good fist. But the area that my Therapist and Doctor are concerned about is my wrist. I have very limited movement and still have pain. I am not able to move my wrist to a palm up position. So the therapist and Doctor want to put me in a device that would move my wrist. It sounds like a torture chamber. What discouraged me the most was that my Therapist would be happy if I can get 60% movement back, but the Doctor does not think I will regain that much.
So I share all this with you because Wednesday when I got back home, I took up my Rotary cutter and tried once again to see if I could make a cut in fabric. And this was the result.
It is slow and uncomfortable, and I can't do it for very long, BUT I did cut fabric!!!!! I felt like I had climbed Mount Everest!
And last night I sewed these strips together.
It's a slow start, but at least I am working towards quilting again :-)
