Life as a Verb: “Whirr”

whirr , definition of whirr , meaning of whirr - 1  ( verb ) whir, whirr, whirring, birr sound of something in rapid motion "whir of a bird's wings"; "the whir of the propellers" 2  ( verb ) whizz, whiz, whirr, whir, birr, purr make a soft swishing sound "the motor whirred"; "the car engine purred" 3  ( verb ) churr, whirr make a vibrant sound, as of some birds


I am “whirring.” Soft, swishing sounds abound. After two years of not updating my website, I finally have a site that I can manage myself. If you have a few minutes, please check it and let me know if you have any problems loading or viewing the pages on your monitor. Next I’ll learn how to upload images, edit text and manage the site myself.

Work progresses on “The Fluttering Pages of My Life”, so here is a quick update detail of my design wall with more contrast being added to the pebbly, textural surfaces. The rippling aluminum rods for hanging these will work beautifully to make the pieces gently undulate.

  7. Hi Carole, we'll see what people say about it when they see it at my exhibition. I'll be happy when I get the work hung and can slow down the pace a bit.

    I am now retired, Steve and I are living on a friends working ranch while our sea side house is being built. The third story will be my studio. Small lot so had to go up and up (elevator) to be installed at a later date! LOL Sewing and creating daily and nightly. I have been selling my work on a regular basis. Have been asked to do a show in September in an uptown gallery no less. My color sense (or lack of such), wild fish, crab and turtles and other creations seem to amuse the folk who summer and winter on the Texas coast. Your encourgement at the Quilting Adventures class has played a huge role in my putting my art up and out of the house!
