Finished Piece and Art Acquisitions

I think I am on the mend, but it has not been pleasant. I started antibiotics last night and feel better today, but not fantastic, yet. So, I am spending my time watching junk tv and occasionally getting caught up on the computer.

I have uploaded new photos to the Virtual Iraq War Protest. Just click on the Endless/End This War graphic in the sidebar. I just realized that the e-mail I gave for sending the photo jpegs was incorrect. It is gerrie(at)gericondesigns(dot)com.

I was able to finish Passage so that it could be in the Columbia Stitchery Guild Show:


Here it is:



I did the machine quilting in a stupor, but I think it is ok . It has to be!

Last week-end, Mr C and I made some acquisitions at the Artists Among Us show at the Cathedral. I bought this water color, Mossy Rock, at the silent auction – got a great deal! I still need to get it framed.


We bought this beautiful photo of the Cumbria region of England. It was hard to photograph because of the glass reflecting. It received a ribbon for viewers favorite from the artists and volunteers.

I am going back to vegging. It is that late afternoon, I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck, time of day. Where is the Aleve?

    Gerrie, I hope that you feel better. I think the quilting is unique and fits the top very well. It’s very fluid and relaxing.

    “Passages” is wonderful….wish I could do so well when I’m not in a stupor!! The colors are just phenomenal! Also love your art acquisitions from your church’s art show. What a great way to support local artists!
    GET WELL!!!
    Warm hugs,

    I hope you kick the evil bug soon. Sending healing thoughts your way.
    I love the new piece, and I like the idea of using the hand stitching to develop one kind of texture and the machine stitching for another, within the same piece. I almost always love the quality of hand stitching with beautiful thread that you can SEE. The sense of depth, color, and shapes are working nicely too.
    Good art acquisitions too, love the effect of “Mossy Rock”, looks almost like paper collage. Jen

    Don’t hate me, Gerrie, but you’ve been tagged. See my blog for details:

    The contrast between the machine stitching and the hand stitching turned out very well, stupor or no stupor 😉 Mossy rock is beautiful too. It’ll be smashing when framed!

    Passage is beautiful. Is it silk? It just glows. I really like the Mossy Rock, it really asks you to look at it for a long time. I hope the antibiotics kick in soon and your back to feeling well. I had that crud a couple of weeks ago and it really knocks the energy right out of you. Cheers
