About Me

Pray for our world


As of 1/7/19 I've been cleared from therapy. In 8 weeks I have my end of care appointment where the ortho Dr determines my level of disability (0=perfect, 100=amputation). He thinks I'll be somewhere around 5-10.

On 9/13/18, I shot a staple in my hand at work (T-50, 3/8" long). My co-worker took me to the ER where it was removed. I had 2 follow up appointments. At the second, the Dr recommended me to an orthopedic specialist. The Ortho Dr recommended surgery because part of my index finger was still numb (2 weeks later). I had surgery Tuesday, 10/2. Of course, it was the worse case scenario: I damaged my nerve; it was repaired. So, I'm one handed for 6-8 weeks. So, moral of the story: no time/craft intensive swaps.

I just finished the small project and LOVE it. Thank you for such an interesting and challenging MYSTERY FABRIC swap. I would join another one like it.

njstauter on Sep 7, 2016:

Got the fabric scrap and it will be an extreme challenge as both the color and theme on the fabric are not things I normally work with. Hah Thanks and I will get to thinking
