Well I tell you what, I feel much better today.
The toe is not so painful. Come to find out, I don't use my left middle toe too much in the studio. Picking up the kids from school and clutching a zillion lunchboxes, tote bags, permission slips, jackets, and still-wet artwork all with a two-ana-half year old on the hip is a different story all together. We managed just fine though.
But my heart is better today too. I spent the morning slowing down, reading comments & well wishes from some very kind women ,and looking through the impressive array of creativity behind the women who sent them. Thank you so so much. In return I am sorry to hear about each and every injury that my comical catastrophe brought to each of your minds, and appreciate your sharing! (mostly cause I feel a little less dumb now)
I think every medical professional I came in contact with shared the "dark mark" under their skin, accompanied by the school age story of how it got there. Its apparently universal.
I also finally got to those fabrics and all are in tidy little stacks. I've shared a few of my favorites
Fun stuff. Back in the full swing soon, lots of painting to do....
