Oh No!

Having just announced the opening of my etsy shop yesterday I took a fall last night at my daughter’s and as I fell the glass in my hand shattered and my hand went down onto the shards of glass as I hit the ground and it got all cut up so bad I bled terribly and spent half  the night in the emergency room with stitches in 3 places, my right hand, and I’m a mess. My daughter spent the night with me and it will be awhile now before I can do anything. Sheesh. Spinning will be way too hard for awhile, as well as making batts and any kind of other fiber artwork so my store is suspended until my hand heals. I’m typing with one finger of my left hand so I’ll stop here. The pain medication is making me woozy. I just can’t believe the timing but I will get going again once I can.  

If you enjoy this blog a donation would be deeply appreciated to help me continue to bring “Maitri’s Heart” to you. Thank you, and many deep blessings to one and all…

  2. That’s how it always happens. Hope you heal quickly!

  3. Hope you recover quickly. I had a MRI of my foot 2 years ago and have a 3″ shard in my heel from 25 years ago when I fell into a plate glass window backwards. Never knew it was there but laughed if archeologists found this and wondered if it was a repair.Do you make all your colors from plant dyes of use commercial colors?

  14. Hi Maitri,
    What happened? Please be careful dear, try to use good shoes. As we age, we have to be careful not to fall many time.

    I always clean my cat shelter and had fell before but never again I promised myself. So I looked for good slippers and shoes and since then I did not fall till today.

    What have caused you to fall? I believe something to do with the shoes, right?

    Please Maitri take good care of yourself, you are too precious to us all and please promise me to only use good shoes or sandals.

    Your are in my prayers and take your time to rest and heal.

    Hugs always,
