An unplanned hiatus

One of the things I love about where I live is that I walk to and from work. That said, one part of the trail I walk along stays in the shade for much of each day and that created a black ice situation this week. For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you already know that I slipped and fractured my wrist this week. The really ironic part was I was thinking as I was approaching this stretch, maybe I should walk in the snow next to the trail to get better traction, and slipped as I was moving toward the snow to get off the paved trail.

One of the plusses of military medicine is that I was treated immediately in an ER that is only open to military members and their dependents, and the next day got a custom splint made for me by the Occupational Health clinic. This means a temporary hiatus from quilting since I can't hold a rotary cutter, and my thumb is locked in place.
