Going with the Flow

I hurt my thumb. Smoothing out a piece of clay. I've done it thousands of times and this one time my thumb said no. Not wanting surgery I've been terrified with the thought of going to a doctor.  They have a thing with cutting. And is it ever really better when they cut?

 In the meantime while my thumb is healing I have been exploring making dolls out of fabric. Drawing patterns and playing with shapes; what I did right and what's going horribly wrong. But it's all learning and playing. Darts are now my best friend. Who would have thought?

Oh no, the thumb! Unless you've torn a ligament, rest and time is the best healer. Go to the doctor and have it checked out. It might give you peace of mind, and if an operation is suggested, you can always 'wait a while and see' :-) that is what I tend to do.
Your cloth dolls look very interesting!

Thank you! I did go and I found out it was a cyst. He poked and prodded and gave me a cortisone shot and he mentioned surgery and I said NO. Hell to the no, and no.
thank you!!!
