Extreme sports?

I think I might have a stress fracture in my thumb.  Could be I slept on it funny and twisted it backwards, or maybe it is from too much crocheting.  I was never one to do things in moderation.  I blew my shoulder out quilting last summer and now this?  I guess I should do a little of this and a little of that instead of overloading on just one hobby.

I know just what you are going through, I used to knit, knit, knit for up to 12 hours a day, but I have learnt to do things differently now. I still make things for about 12 hours a day, sometimes more, but now I have many projects on the go, sewing, knitting, crochet etc, it has helped. I think it is because i am not using the same muscles repetitively. Get better soon.

Ouch! I don't do a lot of hand sewing because of arthritis in my thumb. Ice helps it a little. Hope it feels better soon.
