I ended up at the clinic this morning with a thumb swollen red and twice its size. I thought maybe it was arthritis but apparently it's infected, possibly resulting from a crack in the dry skin near the nail. I got an antibiotic and instructions to watch it. No change yet for better or worse after 3 doses.
Since I was kind of lazy for the rest of the day, I thought I'd show you 2 recent purchases. One came by mail from the UK.
It's a company started by Linda and Laura Kemshall. They are a collection of 10 inch squares printed from the artists photographs. I love their work and just couldn't resist.
I don't have a project in mind for them yet.
The next item I purchased while away last weekend--a rather pretty ball of yarn. It is sport weight and I will use it to make socks, I think.
