Sometimes You Need a Little Help From Your Friends (and Strangers)

I am going to take a break, of sorts, from non-posting about art/creative type things to posting about a different type of oxygen or much needed thing.

It's about friends. And the things they need.

My good friend, Jill Berry, needs your support.
Now, right now.

Go to her blog (via the post above) and read her story.
She can tell you much better than I can relate it to you.

She is in a perfect storm of medical emergencies.

Say a prayer, light a candle or however you ask for help that is beyond and above you, then please do that.

Now, back to the regularly scheduled break.

Fiberart For A Cause Fundraiser

Virginia Spiegel is at it again!

Special thanks to Jeanelle McCall for designing the beautiful logos!

I am honored to be an invited artist for "The 100" to be held on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 (that's tomorrow!).
The goal for this fiber fundraiser for the American Cancer Society is to raise $10,000 in one day. What a noble undertaking!


I'm sure you will want to be one of the very exclusive 100 patrons who will be randomly assigned artwork from an extraordinary line-up of international fiber artists.

Fiberart For A Cause has already raised $240,000 through the generosity of fiber artists and patrons.

I have lost so many family members and close friends to cancer.
It is a devastating disease and the only chance we have to destroy it is through research.

This is a fantastic way to procure beautiful artwork for your home AND donate money to a worthy cause!

I'll be contributing one of my textured, stitched and rusted small works.
All framed and ready to grace your walls.

Layers of natural dyed fibers with teeny tiny stitches.
I used all kinds of different fabrics/fibers.

Machine free motion stitching motif on top of the
hand stitching on top of the rust and natural dyed fibers.

The fiber art is framed in a shadow box to avoid
smooshing the textural effects.

The frames is deep enough that you can sit it on a shelf
rather than hanging it on the wall.
Won't you join the fight against cancer and grab a piece of artwork at the same time?
