Gift of Sunshine


I created and gave this flag to a friend and neighbor who is very ill... to send a little sunshine his way.  I love using sun images, personally finding them healing and energizing to work with.  What better way to share something?  Saying beyond words,  "I am thinking of you."  
Many years ago, when moving across the street to a new apartment, Mike kindly gave me a staghorn fern that he couldn't house in the new place.  Over the years it has done really well in my yard, in fact, doubled in size growing through the lattice to the backside.  The wonder of nature!  He would appreciate that.








For the past 18 years I have taught an adaptive yoga class for the local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to a wonderful enthusiastic group.  This summer, when the NMSS could no longer fund the class, its future was uncertain.  Happily the management at the facility, where we have held classes for a number of years, generously decided to donate the space to us, allowing students to continue to benefit from yoga in the familiar welcoming environment.  Thank you Angel City Body Kinetics! 




These flags, inspired by the flag for my neighbor, are in celebration of the sun shining brightly on our class again.

  1. What a lovely and thoughtful gift. May your friend be well soon.
    I just stopped by your blog while surfing the net a bit. I really like your textile work, the fissure piece is striking, and "contentment 2011" stands out with its thread painting. Very lovely.
