Ouchies and boredom

Recovering from surgery is incredibly boring. I asked my nurse if she could move my I.V. from my inner arm to my hand so I can "entertain myself with thread." as my husband put it. She was kind enough to do it. Now I can tat to pass the time. I do have a few patterns on my smartphone so I'm going to see what I can create. I'm hoping they'll allow me to go home today. For the time being, I'll tat distraction free for a few hours.


  1. This is sort of out of the blue! Hope you get to go home soon! I'm not quite comprehending where the IV got switched to. That photo shows it in your hand and I can't imagine how you would tat with it there! Can't believe you did that flower!

    I certainly wish you a speedy recovery!

  2. I'm also recovering from surgery and wow the amount of tatting I've done keeps on riseing.Enjoy the recovery time sit with cup of tea, chocolate, lots of thread and your shuttles. Hope all go's well for you.

  3. I hope you soon recover, those things in your hand are painful and a nuisance, hope you can tat in peace.
    take care
