OK it may not have started off on the right foot or should it be the hand? See a couple of weeks ago I was out shopping on a very windy day and the van door slammed into my left hand and bruised me badly. While the swelling was apparent the pain was minimal but with reduced swelling the pain increased so I got it checked out. Basically I've a chip floating around inside of the left wrist knuckle and movement is painful - so it's in a cast with the hopes of it reattaching itself without surgery. My first permanent one so far and with the nuisance it is - it better be the last one!!!
Anyways I did get my needlecases ready for the show and managed to sell a fair number and a table runner but not my large twin red/white/black quilt nor my coffee sleeves. Neither did I win any prizes for my two wall hangings but it was AWESOME to hear the positive comments from the public while walking around myself. I just checked my critique and both earned 84 points and most of the comments were positive and a couple of suggestions that might have garnered me more points. I'm happy with them.
