Creating challange for my healing Thumb & fingers this week..
I sold 5 Rag Garlands, 1 regular set of Rag Balls & 8 dozen which is 96 handmade Rag Ball ornaments Monday night on Ebay...... so I had to put my right hand to the test this week. As you can see my Thumb is nearly healed and it looks and works perfectly.
I'm happy to say the surgery was a total success. Yee Haa! Yes Still slower then a 7 yr itch but I managed to create 200 Rag Balls since Monday night. Decided to get as many created as my hand allow me.
I spent all day today tieing 100 with twine so they can be hung on the tree.
I met the challange and they can ship Monday.
These are Primitive Rag Ball Ornaments. Created from strips of old rags & twine.
the real challange was holding them as I wrapped them into a ball with my first finger and my thumb.... it was a huge challange for me.
Something I haven't been able to do for almost a year. Even tho it still hurts a little because my muscles aren't totally healed I did it without pain killers. So Happy!!!!
Only dropped a few & had to stop to rest my thumb & fingers every half hour or so.
The Next challange was to tie each one with twine for hanging on a tree. I started tieing them with twine this morning around noon and Finally finished them around 11 tonight...
My Thumb, fingers and hand aren't happy with me at all but I'm sure happy with them for working properly..
Honestly there were few times today I wasn't sure and was ready to give up..
I finished all of my Rag Garlands too..now all that's left is to pack all my sales for the week and get them shipped out Monday..
It was Beautiful here in good ole Ohio today so I decided to do my laundry and hang it out on the line...One last time before winter hits us...it was great..... when my hands got tired or really hurting I'd work on the laundry.
It was a good week indeed!!
have a great weekend every one!
