Curtis Wright's Bugs


Curtis Wright is the name of the Fly Fishing store in Weaverville, North Carolina. They have a great supply of "bugs" that seem to be appropriate on my little Alzheimer Priority Quilts, hence the name of this quilt.

The newest Alzheimer quilts



William Wordsworth's poem "Splendor in the Grass" was the inspiration for these quilts. When our loved one has Alzheimers we watch as the person fades away leaving only an outer shell. This is much like the verse that reads "What though the radiance which was once so bright be now forever taken from my sight. Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower, we will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind."

Mail Call



Susan Reno's silk postcard arrived and I mailed her a copper and velvet postcard in exchange.
I explained Sue's Cyber Fyber project in yesterday's blog.

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

CYBER FYBER is an exhibition of international fiber art scheduled for January 8th through 20th, 2009 at Gallery 80808/Vista Studios, 808 Lady Street in downtown Columbia, South Carolina, USA. The brainchild of Susan Lenz, this exhibit will focus on the supportive, global community of fiber artists with whom Susan regularly shares new techniques, contemporary approaches to textiles, and finished work by Internet websites and blogs. The exhibition will include three primary areas: Fiber ATCs (Artist Trading Cards); fiber postcards; and the work of several invited artists. The exhibition will also include FIBER DAY and ATC trading day. From the beginning, Susan Lenz is documenting CYBER FYBER on a blog/journal.
If you are a fiber artist who has an active website or blog, go visit Cyber Fyber and celebrate Susan’s vision by participating.
