Today at noon I'm having shoulder surgery on my right arm.  Won't know till he gets in there if the rotator cuff needs building up or not.  If it does, this will be a long recuperation.

Yesterday I tried to eat an egg with my left hand and the first bite rolled off the fort and landed on the table.  I tried brushing my teeth with my left hand, it was cumbersome but worked ok.  Got a few other things I have to deal with that I can't talk about on here but I bet I learn fast how to cope with those.

I'm wondering why all people weren't born to be ambidextrous?  I'm going to be wearing a sling for two weeks and can't even take it off at night.  This thing is huge, not sure how that's going to work.

Anyway, last week my good friend Lupe Meter http://gesmpccorner.blogspot.com/  came over and showed me how to weave these little purses with yarn and cord.  I have at least 1000 rolls of yarn and cord.
This is my purse.  I just grabbed what was available.  It needs a liner and straps.  Thought I would get that done before surgery but it didn't happen so that's on my list to do when my shoulder is better  Thank you Lupe, that was really fun.

Then I bought this paint.  They call it the "Magic Paint" because it does funny things when it starts to dry so I had to try it.

The top picture was my first try.  Those are metal bezels with the paint in them and Magic Glos on top.

The bottom picture is polymer clay pendant/bezels that I made and filled with paint and they also have Magic Glos on them.  I have 7 more I'm to finish before I leave for surgery and I have to pack my clothes to take and put the laundry away and here I am at my blog again.  DUH

I think I'm nervous and I know I won't be able to use my right hand to type for 2 weeks at least.

These are on my list to finish into pendants when I can use my arm again.  I started scanning old pictures and I have to finish that when I get my arm back.  Now I just need someone to come over and do my hair and put makeup on me, change the cat litter twice a week, mop the tile, vacuum the carpets, wash the sheets and iron the clothes, etc.  Ok, just put some makeup on me and fix my hair.
Who cares if I'm wrinkly..........I'm talking about my clothes.

I am praying that your surgery is successful and for complete healing, friend!! I had a blast showing you how to make these wonderful woven bags. When you feel better we will get back to creating some more! Loving those new pendants! I guess I will have to buy me some magic paints and see what I come up with because they are stunning! Awesome work as usual, Bonnie! Hugs!
