Good News All Around

Several years ago, I was honored to be a featured artist on The Textile Blog by John Hopper. I was a fairly new fiber artist and it gave me a measure of confidence about my work. He profiled several artists over the years. Click Here to read the original post. John has recently started publishing online magazines featuring fiber and textile art, titled Inspirational. In the most recent issue, he asked those artists to send him photos of recent work and to write something about our current artistic life. I am happy to once again appear in a publication of his. Above is the cover of my section. Click Here for a link to the online magazine.


The other good news is that I got a call this morning to reschedule my knee replacement surgery. It will two weeks from today onĀ  May 24th. Whew!! So, I continue to prepare for the surgery, the pain, the physical therapy and the recovery. Thank you to every one who reached out to me. I really appreciate your good wishes.

  1. I wish you all the best for knee replacement. I had one a few years back, great job, I can even kneel but not for too long.
    best wishes from Northern Ireland

    So glad you have a date. Your recovery will probably be faster since you are using the CPAP. I’ve known you are an inspiration since the moment I found your blog. Congratulations are well deserved.
