Viola, the cutting will take a while to build back into doing!  Don’t do too much at one time!  
if you need a bunch of cutting done, I could help do that so you could do other parts.....just let me know!

Yesterday and today was the first time I was out in my sewing room

Doesn't sound like you are ready yet for 6 hour days in your sewing room.  Get back into it gradually.  You will get them done.

Dee, I left a voice message for you.  Give me a call back if you'd like to chat about living full time in an RV for a while.

Viola I feel your pain!  When I cut for too long, my right wrist aches from squeezing the cutter, and my left hand aches from pressing down on the ruler.  So far, I haven't let it stop me, but that time may be coming.  I hate it!

Have you ever posted a picture of the purses you make?  I'd love to see them.  I can't imagine making so many!

Sue, what you are describing are repetitive stress injuries.  As  you wrote "the time may be coming" ...

I'm thinking that the time may be coming for you to investigate the purchase of one of these: https://www.accuquilt.com/go-big-electric-fabric-cutter-starter-set.html

I'm recommending the expensive electric model because I don't want you to hurt your wrist hand cranking the other models. I bought the one I am endorsing in this posting and it is a life-saver for sure.  Yes, it is pricey, yes, buying the "dies" to cut all the various shapes is pricey, but oh, my goodness gracious, you can cut fabric like magic!!!!!!  thumbsupok_handclap
