Happy Dancing!!!

On Friday, I received a notice from Karey Patterson Bresenhan - Curator, Journal Quilt Project; Director, International Quilt Festival–Houston and Chicago informing me that my February 2006 Journal Quilt has been selected for publication in her upcoming book entitled "Journal Quilt." Since this journal is one that has not yet been exhibited at the Houston Quilt Festival (but will be next November), I am not allowed to post a photo of it. Suffice it to say it's not my normal style and is somewhat unusual. I am thrilled to have one of my little quilts one of the 300 selected from a field of well over one thousand entries. Two hundred and forty some artists works will be featured in the book with a hope-for publication date of November 2006 - in time for the Houston Quilt Festival.

On Thursday, I met with the Art Director of the Monmouth County Library and subsequently signed a contract to have a one-woman fiber-art show there in March of 2007.

Happy dancing indeed!

Congratulations Pat! I'm going to have to get my paws on Karey's book when it is published.

Congratulations, Pat. Brilliant news!

Wish it was the Monmouth which is about 15 miles from here...
