Any progress...

is good progress!

I am slowly getting strength back into my hand, 

Although it will be like this for another two weeks at least!

even if I only have two fingers and a thumb.

I've hand stitched, very slowly, two more 

"Clambake" shapes....


managed some machine sewing of this Summer 

blouse....


and I'm improvising Month #9 of Delilah....

appliqueing the circle rather than piecing it!


And if it all gets too much, 


I have these to keep me busy!

Happy days!

  2. Little progress is better than nothing at all. Hang in there. I know it is frustrating, but you will be back soon.

  4. I'm glad to see your hand out of that last bandage, because I see it gives you more mobility. I, too, found machine sewing easier when I was convalescing as it helps you sew along. I'm glad to see you found a way to make it work for you.

    I'm sending along best wishes for a good recovery, but I wish I could be there to make a meal or something, to help you along. Hugs to you, Susan!

  5. I'm glad your hand is mending. Injuries/surgeries can certainly make us appreciate a healthy body. So glad you can still create things. May the next two weeks go quickly!

  6. I just came to the realization with your injury and having only two fingers and a thumb on your working hand, you still sew way better than me anyway. Sad but true and also funny. Heal and feel well!

  7. I hope your hand is soon better. Amazing that you are managing to sew. I love your clamshell bake piece :)

  8. I like the mixture of pieced and solid clams. I wish I had more time for reading but I don't think a messed up hand is the way to go. Keep up the healing.

  10. I'm sure this healing thing has become a long and tedious process. I am so sorry for you! But I do see that your hand/fingers are looking a little better. I can only imagine how difficult it must be to work around the limitations created by your non-operating fingers. Perhaps sewing machine use is a little easier than handwork though. Cute blouse! And isn't it nice to have something new to wear for summer? Hope your book-reading is proving enjoyable, albeit slow. Do continue to take it easy.

  11. Glad to see you are healing(even if it is slowly). I love the idea of appliquéing the circles. Hope your hand continues healing.

  12. Hi There. I am finally catching up. So good to see you are making progress and can get some stitching done. Love the way the clams are baking and great to see book plans as a back up!! Take care.

  13. Glad things are healing, and you can make a little progress with some sewing. I love your 'clam ake' shaptes and that pile of books looks very inviting... I must order the Michael R. one.

  14. Clam shells are meant to be slow stitched. Glad you are slowly getting use back in your hand. an interesting pile of books to keep you out of trouble too.

  15. Hello, Suz. I've happened onto your blog while doing some lunch-time surfing. I love the fabrics in the projects you've been working on in your past several posts. Your poor hand! I don't know what happened, but I can sure imagine how frustrating it would be to lose the use of my dominant hand for so long. I hope these two fingers heal quickly for you.
