Tenosynovitis and Tendonitis blues…….

After an active Saturday in the garden 3 weeks ago, and a heavy week of sewing straight after, I managed to give myself Tenosynovitis in the forearm and wrist and De Quervain’s Tendonitis in the thumb all at the same time! (At least I was thorough!)


The point is, I have been banned from the sewing room by my GP who told me to “take up reading for the next 3 weeks.” My GP has a magic little laser acupuncture device and assured me that my arm, wrist and thumb tendons would respond well to a comprehensive zapping session or two or three, and so they did.

I still have another week left of my ban and I have been good and not   sewn anything (well, not a lot! I did do a wee placemat size quilt top, but that doesn’t really count, right?)


I am glad I got Emery’s bag done and the backpack for one of my daughters to go shopping on the mainland with. I now have an even bigger pile of stuff to be sewn and/or quilted, so I hope I can get it all done in time. Christmas is galloping forward with a vengeance!
