I'm Learning...

I have a friend, really a best friend, that makes hemp jewelry. She made me a necklace while my arm was broken. It was oh so very pretty.

I commented one day that once I got my cast off I'd like to learn how to make then. And so I did.

I made myself an ankle bracelet yesterday. It took me almost 2 hours. Most people probably could have done it in 30 minutes or less.

I don't have much strenghth in my left hand now and my coordination is all messed up. But my physical therapist says that this will be a good exercise for me. It will help with both strength and coordination.

So I'm learning this new skill. And its fun. And I get to have pretty things in the end. Who knows maybe I will open an etsy shop if I get good enough. Anyone think they would be interested in buying a hemp item (necklace, bracelet, anklet, keychain etc)?

wait, what the heck happened to your arm!?

I've been MIA trying to keep my head above water. Think of you often!

And pretty anklet!

So sorry about your arm! That must be so difficult with 3 kids. Hope you're doing better.

Very pretty, btw.
