On to Round Two.

Every three years, there's a juried show called 'Threadworks' out of Ontario.  The first time I heard of it, I had missed the deadline - not that it mattered as I had barely learned to thread a needle.  Three years ago, I was a big scaredy cat and didn't even consider entering.  THIS year, with a little coaxing, I worked on a fairly big project for me, and entered it!  There's always a theme and the show entries go through two rounds of jurying before being selected.  ie: 'scary'

Guess what?  I did it.  One day before the deadline I entered the first round of jurying.  Lookie what I just got!!

I bounced around the house exclaiming 'yippee!!! I did it!  woohoo!!! I did it!  Yahoooo!!! Woopeee!!  I did it!'  AI don't know why it's do darned exciting, but it really is a thrill.  Now, I will pack it up and ship it to Ontario for the next round of the jurying process.  I'll find out the results around the beginning of next month.  I will show you photos of the piece then.

Congratulations! This is always a great show, and the best part is that some of the pieces travel around Ontario to select museums and galleries for a couple of years. Hope I'll soon be seeing your work in person.
