..It’s been four years ago since I deeply cut my hand with a chisel/knife for the last time (when I used to work in the church work shop).. And I have no idea what happened yesterday, but, probably, life wants me to stop carving and thinking about carving for a while..

I’ll miss your beautiful work. The number one thing is for you to get well! Look forward to your craving, when you heal. Your talent for craving is ” Head of the class!”

Sorry to hear about your accident Tatiana, this will give you a little break and some design time! Happens to all of us, I got 11 stitches in the same thumb last week. ;-(

Maybe it’s a sign that you need to get one of those steel mesh cloves. Since you’re so young you’ll heal fast.

I too will miss seeing your beautiful work. It is my hope that you recover quickly. Perhaps you can use the time for creating new designs? Take care -

Get well soon!

The steel mesh glove sounds like a good idea, also.

Hi Tatiana,
Oh, so sorry to hear you got wounded.. maybe a Kevlar globe or finger cover will protect you.

Heal fast and start pumping out those beautiful carvings soon.

cheers, Jim

Take a brake and heal up then you’ll come back with new vigor me thinks.

Well maybe its time to load your back pack and chill out for a while exploring Samata Bend National park.
Hitch hiking will be a bit difficult one way though!!

Get well soon !

I’m sorry about your accident,Tatiana. However, knowing something about your beautiful carving and how much you must put into it, I don’t think that you will waste any time. You can be very productive on spending some time on thinking and meditating about your carving. You can also work on your wonderful patterns. Your thumb will heal and your love of what you do will wait on the healing. May you always be happy in your work. Relax some each day as you heal.
