Our Beautiful World..."What Light...."

     This week, the blog "Our Beautiful World" has chosen the theme "What Light Through Yonder Window Breaks?" from Romeo and Juliet.  For me, my first instinct when seeing the theme, was pictures taken through windows! So here are a few of mine. While traveling with my husband, I became quite adept at taking pictures through moving car windows!  Thanks to digital cameras, I would entertain myself while we traveled many miles by clicking away...being able to immediately delete those too fuzzy to keep!

My "100"...Cardinal in the Snow

     The 100 Fiber Artists for the Cure ended last week.  A very successful donation!  The "auction" started at 10:00AM on Wednesday, February 4; Virginia Spiegel, the fiber artist who coordinated the Fundraiser had donors  go to her website and donate $100.00 per fiber art work from 100 Artists', of which I was one.  In 2 1/2 hours she had all 100 works of art taken!!
    Within the day, I had an email address for the person who had randomly be selected to get my art.  My person is Cathy Ortelle who lives North of San Francisco and is herself a fiber artist!  So after contacting her and getting her mailing address, I sent my little cardinal (with whom I had really gotten attached!) off to a new home!
     I made a label for the art and put a sleeve on it so Cathy wouldn't have to mess with doing that.

"Cardinal in the Snow" 

This is picture of my label. I wanted to be sure and have the legend of the Cardinal on it! I love Cardinals and have decided to finish up the wall hanging I started before this one...beading and all!  I hope Cathy likes my little guy as much as I do!!
