I love the naked tree limbs framing the full moon....so peaceful....
I was just beginning to paint my version of sugar cookies in ornaments...wood....when the phone rang and the school nurse asked me to come and pick up Maya Rose. She has been in art class and raised her hand to ask to be excused but apparently the teacher did not see her...she threw up red Faygo pop and stuff all over her perspective project. (I think the whole table was involved.) Humiliated...embarrassed... in pain and with a fever she was down for the count. I was there in 10 minutes and brought her back to the studio where I cleared the futon bed and she immediately fell into a deep sleep. I gave her children's Tylenol but I did not have the grown up medication... I did not now she could take Ibupropen. I drove her home and put her back in bed ...washed her clothes... and then walked to Cherry Valley to meet and walk Sabrina and Hannah home from school. Maya was still asleep so Hannah and I read together one of my favorites James and the Big Peach ...and did her homework identifying geometric shapes... what a Joy. Sabrina did her chores and did her homework on the telephone with her friend .... I hope this meets with her mother's approval ??? I then asked Ken to pick up dinner...chicken and noodles with two vegetables plus he brought dessert and ice cream....great man!!! Everyone arrived together except Ryan...he works later on Thursdays. But we did make sure there was plenty left over for his comfort food dinner. I was going to run a couple errands but decided to make that a tomorrow event...I was worn out. I do hope the little ones all have a better day tomorrow. I will share my photos...process... the girls...everything a Grandmother falls in love with.

I am an artist who makes her marks with a needle and thread. My visual journals give birth to my quilts and are the evidence of my existence. The dialogue between the viewer and the art allows me to integrate my historical, present, future voices, thus communicating with all generations. It is my purpose in the making of my art to guide one to discover a self-actualization of the human spirit--an ongoing conversation between the artist and the viewer. I cherish my freedom to speak through my dyed fabrics, beads, embellishments, and found objects. This visual fiber text has helped me discover a serene appreciation for my own being and often calms my spiritual soul in today's chaotic stream of life.
Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart has been making her works of art for more than 25 years. She has traveled and shown her work in Australia, Mexico, New Zealand, France (Paris), England (London), Italy, and Greece as well as throughout the United States.
