My Final Reveal: To The Left
I woke up this morning and my right elbow was numb. It's not like I did anything to put a lot of stress on the ol' carpal tunnel yesterday (no sewing at all). I guess it was just catching up from the weekend. Nonetheless, I'm left with a bunch of costume stuff that I have to do at home. I don't think I have any projects I can haul into the day job any more. So I had to figure out what I could get done today using my left hand.
I spent two and a half hours painting half a panel. It took much longer than it would with my right hand and it was a bit sloppy, but the design and use of the panel makes it forgivable. I'm really looking forward to getting this costume done. I had a flash of inspiration for the next one last night.
