Well, i just opened my mail to find a very nice surprise...I have won an award.
Just last week, I posted about the Fiber Celebrated Exhibit in Durango, CO. I was so disappointed i was not able to attend. I had hoped to fly out to Colorado Springs and drive down to the opening with my mom, who lives out there. But it was not to be. I so wish i could have been there! My woven figure, "Naturally Endowed," which was shown on their postcard (at right,) was awarded the Functional 3-d Fiber Award! I am so pleased and proud.
Special Thanks to Elaine Bakkenson, who coordinated the exhibit, and made sure all the promotional materials and awards were distributed even though i was not there to recieve them in person!
The Fiber Celebrated Exhibit on line information also features my other piece that is in the exhibit, "Uprooted."
#throwbackthursday to this past February at the @johnccampbellfolkschool with @joannkellycatsos. In a little over a week I will be back there to teach a class myself. To say I am excite and nervous would be an understatement. . . . #basket #basketry #basketweaving #basketweavingworkshop #johnccampbellfolkschool #jccfs #johnccampbell #northcarolina #brasstown #brasstownnc #happyplace #tbt #blog
