Todays Musings Twice The Pain


Todays Thoughts Working With Disabilities
Today i sat thinking to myself about just how long it took me to make the Sock Monkey in the above picture....HOURS!!! My hands are arthritic and they are taking me so much longer to make than they used to , because of the tedious sewing involved and gripping and pulling at the needle in small steps and stages, so much so that it hurts.Some would say stop what you are doing but it gives me so much joy once a monkey is complete i just cant! I also guess its a form of therapy for the hands as well as the mind lol ! I have so much respect and admiration for anyone that tries to continue through everyday tasks and hobbies it takes twice as long to do/make things and i never really realised the pain they must endeavour until now! Just my thoughts for today :) x
