There hasn't been much sewing since my right hand ballooned up earlier this week. Not only was it ugly, like bull-frog ugly.
|No offensive meant towards bull-frogs. I'm sure |
there is another bull-frog out there that finds
this one quite attractive.
It also hurt to move my fingers. It kind of freaked me out and lead to a panicked call to a physiotherapist. So, long story short... I've been advised to take a break from sewing until things settle and wear this thing again.
I think my next sewing project should be designing a more attractive cage to keep my thumb straight that doesn't have velcro. Velcro ruins my clothes. Yeah, I know I can just cover it with a cut sock but it is warming up and it is, well, ugly.
Talking about the good, bad and ugly, I picked up a new book at the library.
I admire this man's wit, to me he is a wise person who highlights how fashion is more than material things in our closet. It is about history, politics, innovation, culture, subcultures, fitting in, protesting and expressing ourselves. I know this book will keep me entertained and occupied while I take a break from the sewing room because I've always enjoyed Gunn's blunt, witty, and astute observations.
