Made a List

Yes, I made a list on paper. The list in the head was not working. I checked off quite a few things — photography for the Line Dancing quilts which I sent to Terry for the CD. I wrote my artist statements for the 2 pieces and sent them to Georgia who is making the labels. I selected two pieces for possible inclusion in the Columbia Fiberarts Guild show at the Contemporary Craft Museum and did the paper work. I also worked on SDA conference registration, of course!!

I am happy to say that Noshi Ribbons was purchased at the last minute today and is going to a new home in Santa Cruz, California. The new owner wants a bamboo rod so I tinted a piece of bamboo with turquoise paint. Fiberart for a Cause has now raised over 17o, 000 for the American Cancer Society. I will alert you when the Collage Mania sale starts.

I did it. Got my hair cut and didn’t get the color. Here I am. Can you see the gray?


I am enjoying the short cut. Makes me feel like spring is here and I can shed the weight of winter.  Next month, I am getting new glasses. Now, if I could just lose the 20 pounds that is plaguing me, life would be great. My headache was not gone, but was much better today.

    The hair looks great, and so does the (sold!) piece with the coordinating bamboo rod.

    gerrie, I am sure you have heard that one day an army of gray haired women is going to take over the world?! at least that is what it says on my fridge!

    yesterday, my father who has dementia told me I am getting some gray hair! at this point, there is more gray than any other shade.

    Gerrie! Glad you’re feeling better! And I’m glad your piece has a new home — it’s lovely. And I like the hair!

    You look marvelous! (said with Billy Crystal voice in my head) I didn’t notice the gray until I went hunting for it. I saw your beautiful eyes. Have a fantastic weekend. Cheers.

    The hair cut is cute. It will be awhile before you are totally gray, but I will be interested in seeing how it looks. You may find you need a whole new wardrobe to go with the new hair color!

    I like the hair! It looks great. When you get new glasses you could pick something super colorful as a trade-off for the hair color.

    Paper work always takes longer than expected. Good job plodding through it.

    The hair looks good! I tried that for a while and then gave up and went back to the color. Congrats on the sale of Noshi Ribbons. It’s a great piece.

    I like the cut 🙂 I had a hair stylist not too long ago who pointed out that my increasing grey would make my overall look “ash blonde” — veddy, veddy classy. You could be an ash blonde too!
