Rusty Grove (detail)
My Rusty Grove was won in Virginia Spiegel's FiberArts For A Cause Reverse Auction this morning. I think I was a little bit in shock when told that it was taken at the Gold Donor level ($1,800) by an Anonymous Friend of FFAC. (As noted in an earlier post, 100% of the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.) I'm absolutely thrilled to have been able to contribute to the ASC's receipt of that sum, when there's no way I could have afforded that kind of cash myself. ART to the rescue! Thank you, Dear Anonymous Friend of FiberArts for a Cause, and thank you, Virginia and all her Helper Angels (you know who you are) who have made the over-$165,000 contributions (so far) possible.


  1. Congratulations Linda!... wow, I can only imagine how you must have felt when you found out!
    And for a cause so close to your own heart.
    I am proud to 'know' you.... you are a support to a lot of people... and an inspiration!
    Your work deserves this recognition.

  2. Linda, I am so proud of you....and so fortunate to have such a talented, giving person for one of my dearest friends. Way to go!

  3. Yay! This really shouldn't surprise you, Linda; it's beautiful! :D Priced just where it should be and for a great cause!

  4. Woo-Hooo Linda!!!
    Hurray for FFAC, ACS and especially for you! Oh, and what a LUCKY LUCKY Anonymous Friend of FFAC! They have purchased one very fine piece of art for their Fiber Art Gallery!!!

    Such cool news!
    Thanks for sharing with all your friends (both nearby and in blogland)!

  5. Congrats Linda! It is a beautiful piece! Thanks for sharing it with FFAC and it's new owner. :)


Talk to me, Y'all!
