Yep, I went to see a doctor because none of my home remedies worked on my thumb. He just did a couple of test and said: "Ma'am you have De Quervain's tenosynovitis" (What an awful name, try to pronounce it with my Polish tongue!) and he said that I'll be all good in a couple of weeks. For now I'm killing the pain with super strength Ibuprofen, I'm wearing a brace and can't stitch with that thing on.
But nothing will stop me from shopping! I always wanted to stitch the Moon Goddess so finally I bought it. I absolutely adore this design
and one of my stitching buddies introduced me to the Dukan Diet. Let me tell you, it's awesome! A little like the Atkins diet - has pure protein days in first phase (he calls it attack phase) that lasts anywhere from 2 to 10 days and the second phase contains proteins plus vegetables. My buddy lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks, I've lost 5 pounds in 3 days. But I love chocolate and chocolate is not on the list of allowable foods. I'm craving for chocolate.... so I bought a chart Chocolate, Chocolate and More Chocolate! I hope it will cure my cravings when I start to stitching it!
I was checking Julie's work and came across lovely design that she was working on (must have for me) "Shore Patrol"
It didn't took me long to find it! Now it is on the way to me and hopefully Canada Post will get back to work so I can receive my mail!
So long friends,
