the hand is recovering -- it may be a few more days before I can hold a sewing needle to do bead work or hand stitching, but I discovered yesterday that there were a few things I can do
like stamping the trees onto the card stock for the Christmas cards
I did all 50 cards yesterday afternoon -- yippee!! step one of that project is done
and I can knit!!
so now the body of the dinosaur toy is all finished and I've finished the tummy section up to where the decreasing begins
this is a good thing since this at least is progress on Christmas projects!
and I worked on this some more
I have eight more rows to do that go from the front edge of the sweater over the shoulder and down to the back edge then I'll be doing the last sleeve
rolling along here too
doing what I can.......
