With a little help from my kids,
they squirted the paint for me and washed my brushes after.

I feel like i have turned a corner with my recovery, all from painting some silly dots.  never knew i could do so much with one thumb! 
Thank you ALL for your support and positive comments. i have been sliding into some really mopey places, and you have lifted me up. it is easy to feel pretty useless without my hands, and you have reminded me, repeatedly, that i will heal.  sorry that i have not responded to each and everyone of you.  every part of this healing adventure is just so exhausting.  but, i wanted you to know that i appreciate your comments, and they are helping.

Now that's keeping your art close! This is all still pretty new to you... hang in there and you'll discover more you can do despite the limitations. I'm impressed that you can even post to your blog. Rooting for your recovery.

You will be surprised what you will do with one thumb! Try something every day and it will all get easier. Stay positive and best of luck!!!

I love the look of your cast! What a great idea since it will help you smile when you look at your hand. Here's to a speedy recovery!

True artist at work -- must do something even when incapacitated. I decorated my cast, too! I was surprised at how sad I was when they cut it off. Not sad to see the cast disappear, but sad that I didn't feel I had finished it yet.

Hang in there! When I'm well I'll swing by. I know how much visitors can mean. Need a haircut? ;-))

I love the cheerful way you have decorated your cast! I am really impressed considering your limitations! But I hope you won't have to wear it long.

That cheerful decoration will bring a smile each day! Hope your hands are back to normal speedily.

Thinking of you and sending all the positive energy I can muster! Feel the love! Just go with the flow. I can only imagine the "thumb" series of quilts coming out of this. Hey, could you use a back rub??

Pam Burnett said...

Just heard about your accident. So sorry what you're going through! I'll be praying for a quick recovery.

I think the decor on your cast has special healing qualities. Wonderful! If you have to wear a cast, you might as well rock it.
