Isn't the human body amazing...

It's a miracle! That puffed up, swollen and painful excuse for a thumb is almost better. I still don't have 100% of my normal movement and dexterity, but I have enough to do some basic tasks that I had TOTALLY taken for granted - ie. sewing!

So, to celebrate - I've sewn up the sunset dyed bear from my rainbow dying with Kool Aid (see posts below). I'm still not quite up to cutting out yet (too much pressure on the joint), but thankfully I'd cut this particular bear out before the rose-thorn incident!

Later on tonight I might even have a go at jointing and stuffing too! Everybody take a moment to give your healthy, functioning hands a great big kiss! They deserve it! ;)


  1. Glad to hear your thumb is improving. Sounded so painful. Your rainbow dyed mohair looks dreamy. Can't wait to see it transformed into a teddy.
    Take care of your sore thumb.. And steer clear of rose thorns!♥

  2. I am so happy for you that your thumb is getting better. Your bears are adorable. Looking at them makes me smile. Gita
