After kind of a tough winter, I have a few pieces of good news. One of my small quilts is under consideration for a book about embellished quilts, and my four piece (quadtich?) piece was accepted into the Sacred Threads exhibit. Especially rewarding is having a piece accepted for the She Made Her Mark exhibit at the Quilter’s Hall of Fame in Marion, Indiana.
On the QuiltArt list recently there was a bit of uproar about whether we should post our good news. There was even some comment about the people who do so being amateurish hobbyists, and needy beginners. I stayed out of the argument, but couldn’t help thinking that there are lots of folks out there with not enough to do. Then I went back to work.
Personally, I have more than enough to do. I am working like mad on the Bernina Fashion show ensemble, and hoping to beat the deadline by at least a month so I can get to work on my two upcoming solo shows. I need to get some new work out for them, as well, and am rapidly running out of time.
In other news, Van is going to build me a design wall. Most of my studio space is windows and bookshelves, so he is constructing a PVC pipe frame that I can mount foamcore on. I’ll cover the foamcore with felt, so fabric will stick to it, and the whole thing can be broken down to move. I’ve been without a design wall for almost five years, and it will be nice to have one again.
Back to the beading table!
