humbled


This came in the mail the other day:

 



Its my contributor's copy.

That means I'm in there. And it feels surreal somehow.

When I made the decision to take my art to the next level and try to establish a career, my expectations were not very fancy. I thought I would write a few articles and sell a couple of thermofax screens and see where things would go from there.

Here's where it landed me:



On page 68 in a book full of artists that I have long admired and respected. Other artists include Melody Johnson, Sarah Ann Smith, Francis Holliday Alford, Belinda Spiwak, Melanie Testa, Jane Dunnewold, Jane Davila, Judy Coates Perez and many many more. Its a special collection of articles from the past ten years of Quilting Arts magazine.

You can get your very own copy here. Its a wonderful resource, I already have a couple of articles marked with post-it notes to sit down and spend more time with as soon as I'm able.

I can't express how fortunate I feel to have had such a full and wonderful year. And to have gotten to know all of you so much better - its truly an honor.

Thanks!!! :)
