about the artist

I am Woman, Hear Me Roar

I am so exhausted with the multitasking. I would love to spend a week with nothing I have to do! I have been juggling the SDA conference registration, working on the 12 X 12 challenge piece and preparing and teaching a workshop and still doing the shopping, cooking and laundry for the two of us.

I must say that teaching the workshop was really a lot of fun. As usual, I over planned things. But, I wanted them to have options. There were 9 or 10 people at the class. The classroom was not ideal for spreading out and working, but the classrooms were being used for another all day program. Everyone seemed to have a great time. I think Angelina fibers were the big hit of the day!!


Here are some photos of work. They really loved the fiber postcards most of all.




This is my youngest student – 16 years old. She was great at dealing with all the mature students and teacher,



My friend, Diane, made this lovely valentine with bits of lime green. I love it.



I came home and put my feet up for an hour, had some lunch and headed to the studio to finish the chair piece for the 12 X 12 reveal tomorrow. I have been working on it all week and had a breakthrough yesterday. I had it done except for fusing and stitching. I am very pleased with the end result. Be sure to check in tomorrow for the reveal.

I have to get cleaned up. Mr C is taking me out to dinner. Next on my plate is a major clean up of the studio and reorganizing and setting into the newly painted office. I also plan to finish my piece for Virginia Speigel’s Fiber Art for a Cause Reverse Auction. I think she has been ready to give up on me, but she knew that I have a very busy schedule. She has gone to Texas to be an artist in residence so I will have the piece ready for her when she returns.

  3. Geri, You definitely must be in full recovery from the Northwest cold everyone in our family is coughing through. But it’s warmer here than in the Big Apple to which we return end of week.

    In the process now of relocating in Portland, so will be back in touch before long. Will visit in the interim to admire your fiberart.
