Milagros - Jack Alone

At the invitation of Kathy Briggs who is a member of Fiber Artists Coalition I was asked if I would like to be a guest artist for a traveling exhibit the group Fiber Artists Coalition is doing with the title "Milagros".  This exhibit debuts at the University of Michigan Hospital for their 2011-2012 exhibit calendar.  I was flattered and thrilled to contribute.  

The definition of Milagros is 'little miracles which offer comfort, hope, peace, strength and/or courage to the viewer'.  To me the Jack-in-the-Pulpit is a little miracle the way it pops up in the middle of May in the cool woods.  They are only seen by the lucky few who are looking for them, like me.  

The Fiber Artists Coalition is a group of fiber artists from the midwest United States who are all members of the Studio Art Quilters Association (SAQA).

Beautiful mom! I saw some Jack in the Pulpits when we were camping last weekend and had lots of good thoughts! You, Plamann house, playing in the woods, hang out in the park, putting twigs in the creek and following them.... :)
