I don't know where the time went! I've been so busy since my tablet died on me. As many of you know I started weaving chainmaille. Well, I started selling it at local Farmer's Markets too. Last summer we did three markets per week... By the end of September it was all I could do to walk. Thankfully I was able to recover October - May with only a handful of craft shows during that time. This year we cut it back to one market per week, until we were talked into going to two a week. August is almost over, now to just get through September with two per week, and then in October we scale back to one/ week.
But anyway, I got my AFO!!!! I've been trying to get some kind, any kind really, of bracing for my feet and ankles. Well I finally got a doctor to agree that I needed something for my right foot and ankle. So in January I got my fantastic AFO. I LOVE this thing. It is one of the first things on in the morning and the last thing off at night.
We did a craft show this spring, we sold enough to pay for the set-up fees and all that until we ran over my phone with the Jeep... Let's just say that the Jeep won, but the new phone was only $50. A new screen would have been $30, so we went with a new phone.
Weaving chainmaille has improved the pain in my hands so much that I don't even wear my ring splints anymore! It's a very fine line though between weaving enough to help and weaving too much and making my hands hurt again.
I've got some weaving to do now. :D I'll try not to let it go so long before I update again.
