Now that you have read all this you are probably wondering why I have looked up the meaning for hands.  For me the word means in general the plural of hand which equals hand made or made by hand.  Well as of late I have had some issues with doing the hand made it has been coming on for about 1 1/2 to 2 years.  But when the season started to go cold the last little bit it went crazy so I went to the doctor and my concerns have been confirmed Osteoarthritis.  Not sure what this means will happen in the future and I am working on strengthening my muscles  and such in the hopes of staying this back a little but we will see how that goes.  I know lots of people have this but that doesn't make it any easier mentally or physically for me.  I was told this was an old woman's disease that woman don't usually get it till after 55.  Well I am not even 40 and I have it. There are very specific reasons for this in my life to many to go into in detail in short past sports injuries, Von Willenbrands Disease and some modern medicine induced medical reasons that have happened in the last year that I prefer not to go into detail on.  All of which contributed to this. I plan on doing handwork  till I return to my maker I hope I get the chance too.


  1. I understand about your hands, even if I do not have the same condition.

    I have known ever since I picked up my first needle at age 12 that my hands would not always have the strength I need to do the work I want to do.

    Much love being sent your way.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope that you will be able to hold it off, as you hope. I have often thought about things like osteoarthritis and how hard it would be to lose the ability to use my hands as I wish. I'm so sorry that you have to walk this path. Thinking of you...
