I must preface this update with the request to "please do not laugh at this terrible work". My arm is out of plaster and the bones have healed but all the tendons and other soft tissue are in a bad way. I am having to learn some skills from scratch all over again.
A few more stitches in the cross stitch.
Then, some knitting. It takes me over an hour to do 10 rows. I am finally getting the tension a bit better but it looks as though I am going to be able to knit again, eventually.
Shame I can't say the same for crochet.
I finds this difficult because my hand is so swollen but the worst is typing, pure agony.
Still it could be worse and with practice and lots of physio I should get there.
