as usual i'm being last-minute-annie...tonight i'm giving a talk to a group of quilters. i was asked over a year ago to do it, and i was pretty flattered so i said of course i would. and now it's tonight and i'm getting my work ready to show them, and i'm pretty nervous to say the least. so...my stuff is piled into semi-chronological order, my talk is entitled 'my quilt art journey' and it couldn't be more apt. since the invitation, my life has changed unbelievably...i've discovered blogs and etsy, my work has gone from being fabric based to more focused on paper collage. i've exhibited my work in a gallery in america, and i've been invited to take part in another in september. i've done illustrative packaging work for a large food company and i've just finished a book cover (more about that later this week) for an american publishing company. isn't it strange how opportunities have come knocking when you least expect it?
ps...a great, great big thank you to everyone who commented about my 'thin or thick' dilemma...although the general opinion was actually not the answer i wanted!
