BiCoastal Best Wishes

I really don't recall how I first became acquainted with Lisa Congdon (this is truly like "which came first the chicken or the egg?" since I can't remember if I started reading Lisa's blog first or her Mother Gerrie's!), but I know that I've had her/my wonderful Mod Bird for at least two years, maybe three? Here she is:

So, today Lisa and her business partner Rena are opening Rare Device, their new shop/gallery in San Francisco! WooHoo!!! I am so thrilled and excited for Lisa, as I know this has been a long time in the making! I can't wait until our next trip to SF, so that we can go take a peak, but until then I'll have to be content with its website. And Gerrie, I wish you were pouring me a little glass of wine right about now!

For my most recent birthday, Lisa's Mom, Gerrie, made me an incredible Fiber Art cruciform in my favorite colors: chartreuse and red. Accompanying that was this lovely card:

also made by Lisa!

So, if you're in the SF area, stop by Rare Device and check it out!

Congrats and BIG hugs to Lisa on her dream come true and a new chapter in her young life!!

So you're the one who got the cruciform Gerrie showed on her blog. She does such a wonderful job with the silk and the rainbow colors on cross pieces like this. Lucky you!
