Check out what I'm wearing these days.  :(  It's a wrist brace to help keep my hand in a neutral position to help my poor overworked wrist to heal.  Last week while getting things ready for the Farmers' Market, I hurt my wrist--just doing regular stuff, I had just done too much.  It hurt so much I immediately stopped working and put ice on it.  Ouch.

Now it is doing better.  It's better enough that it is often easier to use my braced hand than it is to slow down enough and use my left hand.  That means I am using it again.  I have to keep reminding myself that the body needs time to heal.

Research and Experimentation

Today was the first phase of my latest research/experimentation.  I had a booth at the local Farmers' Market! The weather was beautiful-sunny, warm, and dry--perfect for being outside!
My "booth" is a 2'x4' folding table.  I was selling my handwoven towels in two sizes (19"x29" and 10"x15") and felted drier balls.  The drier balls were a hit and sold.  The towels were considered "beautiful" and "lovely", but none sold this week.  I'll be back at the market the second Saturday of June and will run the experiment a second time.
