"Milagro Baby," pin by Gail Gagnon Garcia, handwoven fabric, charms, silver beads. G3 was a Redlands, CA, artist who died about 9 years ago. Miss you, Gail.
When Gail and Paul lived in Abilene, Tx, she was part of our weaving group. We all had such fun together. I have several of her hand woven rugs and a few pieces of her woven jewelry. I treasure them. We kept in touch after they moved to the Redlands, but eventually lost touch. She wrote the most wonderful letters. I still have them. It saddens me to read of her death. She was a brilliant fiber artist.
She was brilliant, and touched so many of us in her too-brief lifetime.
As I mentioned earlier, Paul & I have kept in touch since Gail's death. Sadly, I received a call about a month ago that Paul too has died. He went in his sleep while he was visiting his sister. It really does break my heart to lose these two dear friends.
I am so sorry to hear of Paul's death. So difficult to lose good friends. My thoughts are with you.
I'm so sorry.
