I have been put on no stitching by the Dr. 2 weeks now, no stitching driving me crazy! They think I had something under the nail which grew some scar tissue. They cauterized it, still hurting. Will have it checked again next week. I did have to sneek a dish towel in for a bridal shower. I will cut some patterns this weekend. But so hard to have cut patterns and not stitch. The old saying sticks out like a sore thumb is so true.
