Keeping busy and a new shop

crocheted flower bookmark


I again, have to apologize for my absence...but I have found a way to keep busy, which is doing another thing that I love: crocheting! With these cold Winter days, and no need to go out, and as we know, one can only clean so much (!)...it was time to find something I could do, that would not only occupy me, but work as a kind of physical therapy on my hands. 

With the onset of having tendonitis in both rotor cuffs, I have also developed calcium deposits in the palm my right hand, on the bones, which creates a lot of stiffness and makes my fingers lock up. (Left hand...same thing, but I am right-handed.) I needed some 'thing' to do that would keep my fingers from staying stiff...so I went back to what I really enjoy doing during the Winter.

I have made doilies, bookmarks, baskets/bowls, pot holders, scarves for my grandchildren, and the list goes on. It was through a sweet friend, that I opened an Etsy shop to sell many of my creations. I named the shop: Serendipitousmakings. (What else!  LOL)

Here are some of the things I've made in the last month or so...
