as a rotary cutter (if you are a quilter). In late June I was opening a can of soup with this type of ring top lid and it just "snapped". I had to go to the ER immediately and returned home with 4 stitches. After about 6 weeks it all seemed to be healing just fine - on the outside. But the color was off, parts of my finger were still numb and parts hurt to touch. I was referred to a hand surgeon and am now awaiting surgery to repair a severed nerve. Apparently the nerve endings are attaching to scar tissue and if I touch it at all, or try to use it, it is like sticking my finger in a light socket. So, next week I will have surgery to insert a conduit like object into my fingers into which the nerve endings will be threaded....to get them away from everything else they are looking for and/or attaching to.
So, I have no new quilts to show right now - but, stay tuned!!!
