I haven't had much time to work with my hexagons over the last week but I am still making some progress. Although my fingers have been taking a huge hit from the sewing needle, I'm still chugging along. They're very tender and just plain beat up from guiding it through the fabric. It's scary to think how much worse they could get.
I have employed every piece of finger armor that I own but haven't found the right one to do the job yet. Most of the thimbles hurt the sides of my fingers or simply just fall off. The leather thimble feels uncomfortable and cumbersome. There just has to be something better than the bandaids that I have resorted to using. Finger pain hasn't stopped me before and most likely will not stop me now as I am loving the process way too much.
On another note, my diet is going nowhere fast. At this point in my life, I am lacking the motivation needed to lose weight. It isn't unusual for me to go through periods like this but I usually recover rather quickly. In this case, I haven't. I don't know if public humiliation(posting to my blog)is doing me in or helping me at this point. My pants are becoming tight again so I know that I am moving in the wrong direction. *Sigh*
