Backside of Purse and "Healing"

I was able to tat two more items for the backside of my little purse. This is a small purse and just my style. I loaded it up with my personal items and gave it a test run and guess what? It's my new favorite purse!
I just LOVE it!
In the beginning I thought this one would be a give away, but nope, I'm going to be selfish and keep it all to myself and I couldn't be more delighted.
The tatting on this purse is in size 80 thread. The gorgeous brown thread belonged to my great grandmother and was given to me recently by a great aunt along with one of her shuttles. So it makes this purse extra special.
I attached the tatting to the purse by carefully sewing it with invisible thread. Talk about a pain in the tush, but well worth it in the end.

This morning is the first day since the dog attack that I actually feel some improvement in the healing of my hand. Today marks one week since the incidence and I think it is safe to show you a picture of the hand taken this morning.

I didn't sleep well last night because it was itching all night long. Does that mean it's healing? Anyway, I have a little hope today that I will be able to get back to my projects soon. Not being able to do pottery for a week has left me a bit depressed. Our Flight doctor is coming over today to take a look at it which is a relief. My other injuries such as road rash and bruising are actually bothering me more now.

I am so glad that you are better. I would hate to see what the hand looked like a week ago! I can't imagine what I would do if I couldn't tat for a week or more. How long before you will be able to do your pottery?

Adorable purse! I tried to make a purse with old jeans myself once and when I tried to sew the strap on I forgot to change the settings on my sewing machine and shattered the needle. Oh well, live and learn. Oh and eek that looks painful ):
