Working through the Sepia Button stash


I enjoy carding my button designs.... random stock...
As I found a larger goose... I thought Christmas of course...
maybe have 3 ...then I search in the box for a piece of holly...
Now what ???/ A house etc....
I almost have the table set & the pudding made by the time I have finished.... 

I am nursing a sore something.... hip/ back/ old age
49 years ago I developed this arthritis after a car accident...
&
I had many many days like this in my earlier years & I was hairdressing ...& dancing the nights away
They were sometimes hard days...

It was 10 years before I got the diagnosis & luckily the specialist lifted one leg into the air & said 
I think you have ankylosing sponyidilitis ( probably cannot spell it either !!! )  
We'll do this & that & the genetic test....which was 1978 & they had that knowledge base then...
but even after the accident the surgeon knew the accident brought on an arthritis waiting in the wings..
Amazing stuff genetics....sometimes it answers nothing but knowing, but other times it guides us into different lifestyles.....because we know.

I know I need to keep fitter than I do & shed some weight...
Times like this it brings it way way too close for comfort...
So I need to keep mobile & to keep rested on & off...
More buttons to card now....
