To Progress or Not To Progress

On Friday, I thought it was Monday. Today I feel like it's Sunday. I don't know what's going on other than that I've been very busy. I've delivered the first 3 Hawaiian shirts I've been working on. I made 4 new zipper pouches for this past week's markets and now have two left that I can list in my shop.

I made this new little messenger bag last week and added it to the shop last night. I've been thinking about a small messenger for a while. I'll adjust the measurements slightly before I make it again. It was fun to finally use some of this great fabric. Yes, it will be a pattern at some point.

My hands are still feeling pretty bad, but I'm trying to take lots of breaks to prevent as much pain as possible. I can barely crochet at all now so new monkeys will be few and far between for a while. This makes me really sad...really. But my wrists start to hurt as soon as I pick up the hook. I think that's my body telling me something so I've decided to listen as much as possible. Not being a person who can sit still, this is proving very difficult.

Man, I totally understand not being able to sit still. What is going on with your wrists? Have you tried wearing gloves made for wrist problems?

Hang in there try not to be sad it will get better:)

Oh honey---so sorry about your wrists :o( I hope they get better quickly, there are monkeys to be borned! You are right to listen to your body, I only hope that you can find something that will assist in the healing.

You are a busy little bee--all your pouches are just darling and love your messenger bags!
