In June, my happy feet took me to Columbus, OH for the NQA Show, and a day trip to Athens to see the Quilt National 2011 Show to see up close and personal work of so many of the names I have heard of and admired.
Fused glass jewelry, has led me to be a vendor at several shows this year and we (my husband and I) have had such a good time and met so many wonderful people who have offered inspiration and lots of advice for us as we start off on this adventure of seeing where the collision of fused glass and quilting is going to go.
These feet actually jumped for joy a couple times this year (3 times to be exact. The first was on the 31st of January while hanging a show for the Ann Arbor Fiber Arts Guild http://www.aafg.org/ in the Power Center, George Clooney who was filming in Ann Arbor walked in to the lobby while a half dozen 60'something year old women were sweating like athletes. the second time was on the 2 of February when I got a phone call telling me that one of my wall quilts sold; no, Georgel Clooney didn't buy it to take back to Hollywood, but it was a very significat piece. the third yippee came with the e- mail that a piece that I called Quoth the Raven was accepted to hang in the Sacred Threads 2011 show http://www.sacredthreadsquilts.org/ .
tallyho, I hope all of your bobbins are full!
