Christmas Crafting on Hold….

girl-broken-arm_~x17410582

On my way into work on Monday morning I slipped in the parking lot and my left elbow broke my fall.  As the day progressed it was hurting more and more so I headed to the emergency room.  After waiting for 7 hours in the ER and being tortured by Xray technicians, I left with a plaster splint on my arm as well as a sling and prescriptions for pain killers.  I’m supposed to see the orthopedic doctor this week so he can determine if the arm is in fact broken and to what extent.  I’ll be calling the doc first thing tomorrow morning to try for a same day appointment and will hopefully have more news after seeing the doctor.

This means that my Mother in Law’s quilt will not be finished nor will a few other projects I was hoping to make as gifts.  I haven’t wrapped any gifts yet nor has the grocery shopping been done for the family meal we are hosting on Friday.

But then again, what are the holidays without a little stress?

On the bright side, while sitting in the ER I got an email from the Fat Quarter Shop letting me know I was one of the Dear Santa Contest winners :)

Accidents never happen at a convenient time! I hope you heal like a young person and not an old one. :)
I love trip around the world quilts and am following the progress of your orange one. I've sewed with a broken foot but it will be harder with an arm.
