The grant I received from CERF, just before facing a serious medical operation, gave me two months of recovery time without worrying about anything except getting better. And I did! As artist/craftspeople we live on the edge all the time. Most of the time this is just fine but sometimes we need that edge to be softened. Thank you CERF for softening mine!
