The Morning After

April 18, 2011

The 1st Annual Jasper ArtFest is over and I survived.  My voice did not.   Saturday was cold and so very windy.  While the sun was out, it was bearable, when the clouds covered the sky, it was not.  Sunday was warm and pretty, no complaints there.  Was I successful?  Since I have no comparison, I don’t know, but it was an unique experience and I am thrilled at the number of people who studied the thread pieces and questioned me on how I did that and the one woman who said it was so “contemporary”!  Perhaps, maybe definitely, my confidence level for showing my work has moved up a notch!!!

AND, my booth won second place!  I will take all the ribbons offered!  Here are pictures before the yellow ribbon on the cold very windy day.

Much thanks to  you all who came to see my work and even more to those who bought it!  You’re the best!

Here is one of my latest fiber pieces-
