If it ain't one thing, it's another. Last week, I fell and hyper-extended my right elbow, causing a rather nasty sprain - which is the term for ligament damage. Whoever coined the term "only a sprain" should be taken out and shot.
Anyway, no torchy torchy for me for a few days.
On the upside, after a decade of spinning mandrels with my left hand, it was about 24 hours before it occurred to me that it was my dominant hand that was impaired - and that was only when I realized that my hand writing was suddenly waaaay worse!
So - beadmaking - good for improving non-dominant hand dexterity! Cuz ya just never know!
