    Wink Sore Pointy Finger Syndrome

    I think I have developed Sore Pointy Finger Syndrome (SPFS). I believe the cause to be the over use of my Pointy Finger to click my mouse as I search the QB. Just wondered if anyone else suffers from this terrible affliction?

    I sprained my pointy finger at a quilt class where you used a surgical cutter to cut shapes out of a background. I couldn't use it to click the mouse for three whole months after that!!

    No pointy finger problems but I do have problems with my right thumb from "turning the pages" on my NOOK.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    You can get valuable physical therapy from sore computer fingers or quilting hands by wrapping them around a small wine glass. Just sayin..... :0)
