Good morning fellow bloggers ;)

I am now able to make capital letters (pretty hard work for these severely arthritic fingers) and feel a little better about posting anything. 
This surgery has truly amplified what has become my particular mantra for 5 1/2 decades 'stop complaining, it could be worse' ... and I am truly thankful that I will be only a one arm bandit for 6 weeks !!! Dressing one's self is easiest when I just wear a nightie ... all day ! Wearing a bra is not an option if you have no one (or just won't allow) else's assistance ... I have always been very independent and really hate to ask for help when I can perfectly manage ... somehow. I am able to use my other hand minimally if the sling allows ... so spreading butter on my toast is now an accomplishment. Personal hygiene .... what can I say that wouldn't be gross ? ... nothing, so I will let your imagination play here ... I just thank god that my wounded wing isn't the dominate one.  So many, teeny, tiny things that I take for granted every minute of my day, are now driving me crazy ! 
But ... I have lots of time to catch up on my soaps and browsing the internet !
In my email this morning was the latest interview by The World of Threads

The World of Threads Festival is a very well-known and far-reaching, yearly celebration of fibre art out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I have been reading their interviews, of participating artists, for several years now (secretly hoping that one day I would be good enough to enter and be accepted in one of their shows ). 
Today's interview is of American artist James Arendt http://worldofthreadsfestival.com/artist_interviews/127-jim-arendt-14.html ... wow ! I am a new fan of this artist and his fibre of choice !  Fascinating work and a great interview ! 

"I will not make any boring art" ...  John Baldessari

Happy Thanksgiving  to all who celebrate this weekend !
