Parchment and Peel offs

Whilst my hand is still troublesome I can't do what I call really serious parchment work - i.e. lots of embosssing . But I can do parchment work assisted by grids and PCA templates and Groovi plates and in this case peel offs and a PCA A4 Bold Grid.
This was done at my last lesson. The other ladies were doing much more complicated projects so I did this one which entailed less stress and strain on my hand although the snipping out took much longer than usual to do..

The peel off was provided by my Tutor.  I copied what she had done with it but I did a different border - one by Wendy Walters. I haven't decided the sentiment yet.
What I thought to be Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (which can be sorted out)  looks more likely to be Arthritis (probably long term). I won't know for some time as believe it or not my appt to see the Consultant is not until 2nd March.
I'll see you again on Sunday with our next CD Sunday Challenge.
Take care.


  1. Looks beautiful Carol, I like the combination of peel offs and parchement work,
    Carol have you tried compression gloves, they are fingerless but have helped my hand in the cold weather, keep the hand warm, I have carpel tunnel and the Fibromalygia make my hands painful when they get cold.
    Keep warm in this cold weather.

  2. Thanks Margaret. I have one of the hand splints but as it isn't my wrist it doesn't help I am afraid. I have tried. I use a lot of Deep Heat and a hot water bottle. xx
