Needing a break ...

Yup, I guess I have Dupuytrens in my right hand ring finger.
It has been a problem for years and always called it a trigger finger.
Injections always gave me relief for many months, but now I have this knot in the 
middle of my palm and do not remember having that before. 
My social life involves visiting the Dr's. offices regularly.  what FUN!
Will have to  lay off the punch needle for while...
I just listed my last and hopefully really NOT my last design on Etsy...
He is so cute with that big fuzzy tail...
Loving how the acorn turned out with some small Maple leaves too.
This picture show the tail after I clipped the longer loops.

In this photo, Mr.Grey is still in the hoop, needing more background to be added. 
Added his glass eye giving him some life. 
Long loops have not been clipped.
See the difference?
That's the fun part, creating dimension and texture varying those loop lengths.

Now I need a break, sit back, watch the Yankees play and hope to relax.

A brief update for those of you who know...
Our Sandy, born with Williams Syndrome.
 just turned 55 in August and has always lived with us.
 As they get older they have anxiety and problems with depression. .
This last May,  I was no longer able to help and keep her safe.
The past six months has been the most difficult time of my entire life.
 Dr. Chris McDougle, a Professor at Harvard, sent to us from WS Association.
Christopher McDougle, MD, is the Director of the Lurie Center for Autism, a multidisciplinary program that treats children, adolescents and adults with autism spectrum and other neurodevelopmental disorders.  In addition to persons with autism spectrum disorder, Dr. McDougle specializes in the diagnosis and pharmacological treatment of those with Williams syndrome, Down syndrome, Fragile X syndrome, and Angelman syndrome, among others, especially adults.
This Doctor's God sent guidance is making the difference. 
I Thank the Lord daily for sending Doctor McDougle to us.

Our Prayers have kept me strong.
I continue to "Trust in Jesus".

Thank you for the visit.
Peace and Blessings for ALL,
