Yesterday morning I felt pain in my right wrist when I did a few simple tasks.  It might have been from helping my husband install the window unit air conditioner in the dining room.  Perhaps hand piecing hexagons has caught up with me.

My husband had the pictured brace from when he needed to immobilize his wrist after straining it lifting the garage door repeatedly for a period of time.  He has one for the left arm incase I need it.  I’m hoping it is just a temporary problem from lifting the air conditioner.

I have been piecing intensely now for nearly a year with no problems, so I am really hoping that hand sewing is not the culprit.  I’m wearing the brace to bed and during long stretches of the day.  When I am not actively doing anything I am taking it off.  Hopefully, this will not last too long.
