Two weeks down, 4 to go until I don't have to wear the sling anymore.  Even after it is off, I won't really be able to use my arm until I have some Physical Therapy.  The good news is, it doesn't hurt as much as it did, but sometimes I just want to rip off the sling because I just feel trapped in it.  Oh well.. I'll admit I am easily frustrated. 
I did manage to get one thing done this week.  Rotary cutting with one hand is not easy or accurate, so I kept it simple.  I made a PHONE PILLOW  for my husband's Kindle Fire after I mysteriously found my ipad stand under it.  This works just right and he can watch netflix on it as he works.

I used some Mark Twain Fabric, and I filled it with rice.  The person that designed the pattern said that she used aquarium rocks, which might work really well, but I don't have bags of those laying around.  I do, however, have a big bag of rice.  Either way, it works fine, and I have my stand back.

I'm a little late to the game, but I understand that the show DOWNTON ABBEY has been popular.  I never heard of it until the second season started.  I watched the first season on Netflix, and the first episode of the second season on the PBS website.  I am going to get it on iTunes. It's really good, I enjoy it.  Now I'm waiting for the show SHERLOCK season two to get to the U.S.  It has started in the UK, so I hope that the wait isn't long.

In the meantime, I'm going to sit here and twiddle my thumbs.  I won't be able to start new projects for a while because I can't hold down the ruler when I want to rotary cut, but I do have a bunch of things that only have to be sewn together. And having an integrated dual feed Pfaff helps, because I only need one hand to guide the fabric under the needle.

We got snow here last night, but it is supposed to be 58 on Monday.  I haven't missed the snow AT ALL. 

I hope that you all are doing well and getting lots of things done.  Take care!\
