Holy cannoli this is an active thread!  I was on vaca over the weekend and found nearly 10 pages of missed chatter!  I've tried to briefly skim everything I missed, but my brain starts skipping rather than skimming after the 5th page.  Anyway, I have some challenges made that I can't post yet as they are for swaps, but rest assured Team Monster that I am still crafting away!

Ludi, I can't wait to see your stumpwork & needlefelting!  I think you are my most recent craftster crush!  Wink

Thank you, La Chapa!  I don't think I will be doing needle-felting, I want initially to try wet felting and see if I can create a scene with the two colors of wool I hope to obtain.  If it doesn't work or is too crude, I might get a felting needle and try that.  Smiley  Or I might wet felt the basic shapes and then embroider over them.  I'm not sure and this will all be an experiment.  I sorted the wool yesterday and hope to start washing it tomorrow.

Thanks for the well wishes, and yes Ms. Bunny: I think I may have some tricks up my sleeve...or splint! HA!

Imagine my comfort when I entered into Google "de Quervain's will I knit again" and towards the top was a topic thread from our beloved Craftster!

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144299.0#axzz2XLVT0yhd

I've found I can still hold a paint brush and run things through a sewing machine! Scissors are a bit tricky...maybe just using the rotary cutter?
Silver Lining:
If anything this is really going to let me think outside the box!!!

I've been staying up to date with the threads and trying to sneak some crafting in here and there the past couple weeks as I finish up my thesis, but...today was my final presentation!  I'm officially graduated and now I get to spend the rest of the summer crafting away.  I'm still hoping to have my research project finished by Friday, but that might be pushing it just a little...perhaps by Sunday.  Grin
