A SET back

I've been looking forward to starting a new sampler for a while now. It's by Margaret & Margaret called Phebe Allen 1817 reproduction sampler and have this much done so far...

Until I suffered THIS set back - yesterday whilst playing badminton I stumbled and fell onto my wrist and with the pain mounting, DH took me to hospital and to my dismay was told my wrist is broken.

Oh no, I can't stitch, never mind drive or cook or clean (too much) - funny that last one doesn't bother me so much!!!lol!

I'm managing because at least I can still follow all your blogs and I'm thankful it wasn't my ankle so I can still walk but time might just be more tricky to fill without any sewing :-(

And there's always reading which I love. A blessing my Amazon order came yesterday and I've got more Amish fiction to read!




When the swelling goes down I've to have a hard cast put on - just pray that I heal quickly as it means I can get back to being a full time mum again and stitch some!!!

Thanks for your friendly comments - you make my day brighter!

  4. Well the no cooking and cleaning part of the deal is great, but the no stitching or sewing stinks. I guess reading will have to fill your time. Sorry you broke your wrist...sounds really painful! Take care.

  5. Ohhhhh noooooo Christine!!!! I am so sorry. Broken bones hurt. How long will you have to wear a cast? At least you have a good read. I love Beaverly Lewis. I also love playing badminton. We have a set we put up on the backyard and beach over the summer. Hope you feel better soon. -Steph-

  10. Ahh Christine.. I am so sorry about this happening to you... I am sending you a hug.. smile.. I broke my wrist when I was about your age and was right in the midst of craft shows.. Terry made a support for my arm and I had to keep right at it.. I am right handed and it worked fine.. Thank the Lord..
    Praying for you..

  11. Oh Christine...poor you! I hope you will heal quickly, and in the meantime you can be thinking up lots of new designs for when you get that cast off! Someone I know, broke an ankle playing badminton last year...and exercise is meant to be good for you! :0)

  13. Oh my christine..what total bummer..Been there a couple of times and its just such a pain in the Beep to do things..keep it up in the air as much as you can to get the swelling out of it and get that hard cast on so it can heal nicely so you don't have prolems down the road.. While your at it enjoy catching up on your reading and have fun skipping the house work..

    Take Care

    Blessings

  15. Good morning Christine - OUCH...that's just horrible...goodness it's amazing what one CAN'T DO when an arm/hand is out of commission. I pray you heal fast.
    Maybe once the hard cast gets on you will be able to at least guide things with that hand....I'm praying for you.

    Thanks for visiting my blog - always nice to see your name come up.
    Blessings,
    Karen

    So sorry about the stitching part, but as you say, you can blog and read without a trace of guilt:)
    Hope you heal real soon,
    Hugs to you,

  20. Oh no, I hope you heal fast. At least you can read, I remember how after I had my last baby I just wanted to sew or craft, I fulfilled that need by sewing squares together for quilt blocks for a few minutes a day.

  24. Another reason I can add to my list of why exercise isn't good for you. ;o) Seriously - I am very sorry to read of your mishap....I've had surgeries on both wrists, and you don't realize how "handy" your hands are until you can't use them. Praying and hoping you heal quickly.....Hugs ~ Robin

  28. Hi Christine, Sorry to hear about your little accident. Hope it heals fast.
    Playing catch-up reading blogs and now that this craft show is over, hopefully, I can stay caught up!!!! Love all your projects you did get done before the fall. You do such nice work.
    Take care,

  29. Oh no, so sorry to hear that! But like you said, thankfully your new books came in at just the right time. It's so hard to function with something like that and we sure don't realize how much we take it for granted until we are without it, right? Praying for quick healing, my sweet friend~

  30. It seems we have something else in common. I had my cast removed two weeks ago. A finger in my right hand was broken. I had a cast for 6 weeks. It was sooooooooooo frustrating. I was glad I could still read (blogs). I have a few novels from Beverly Lewis. I think I've read this one too. Wanda Brunstetter is another author I like.

    Get better soon!
