Oh Well

Now I see what you mean.. sorry to leave you hanging.. I don't know what happened. I wrote stuff here, but it didn't show up. Anyway.. was just posting to say that I did not get my skeleton quilt into the Houston show. I didn't figure it would get in. There are other shows. I talked to Caryl Bryer Fallert, who spoke to our guild tonight. She said that she has been rejected more than accepted into shows.. I think she was probably lying but it was nice for her to say it. She spoke about her design process. And after seeing it, I have a long way to go before anything of mine would ever be even within waving distance of her league. I'm glad the art quilt world has her. I sat with her for lunch yesterday, and after talking to her, I don't know how she can stand to travel all of the time, and make her art her means of living. I couldn't do it. She did say that she enjoys the process, and after she is done with a piece, it is just stuff. She hangs on to a few special pieces, but the rest she sells. She is going to have a beautiful studio in Paduach. I can't wait to see it. Well, I hope that this shows up!!

Well, crap! I know there are other shows but I wanted to see your piece in Houston. I'm sorry & I feel bad for you & I may be crying in my soup too with the Hoffman Challenge but as we both know, "Nothing ventured, nothing gained". I am sure that you learned a lot working on your Day of the Dead quilt.

I'm blown away your Day of the Dead quilt didn't get accepted. It's an amazing piece and merits an even higher place.
