Fiber Art For a Cause Preview

I have been remiss in my blogging lately--stress with work and other things--but I have been wanting to get back into the routine again. What better way than to show the pieces that I have been working on with a friend of mine, that we donated to the very worthy cause--Fiber Art for a Cause--which benefits the American Cancer Society. I lost my mother in law in 2006 to breast cancer, so this cause is near and dear to my heart.

Over 150 artists have donated 350+ collages to be "auctioned" off beginning May 5th. On May 5th, the suggested donation is a minimum of $80, and then on the 6th and 7th, it goes down to $40--but I wouldn't wait! Your favorite might be snatched up by then. Here is a link to a preview of all of the collages--Lynne and my collages are on page 36.

And here also are the four that we submitted.

Ebb and Flow

For some reason, this phrase popped into my head for how things have been going lately. I think that I have been "ebbing". Busy with rush jobs with my longarm business, preparing our taxes, plus being sick--again--has kind of zapped my creative energy. I have been working on a set of collages for the Fiber Art for a Cause auction with a friend of mine--those were kept under wraps until we were done--I will unveil those shortly, but have to get the pics off my camera. I have also been working on some gift cards which have been kind of fun, and a way for me to get some painting and sewing done without having to think too much since my brain has been so fried! Again, I need to download some pics, but will do that soon.

So, no new pics tonight--just checking in to say I'm still alive! I feel a flow coming on....whew!
