I am the worst secret keeper. My husband keeps the Christmas presents at his office because I find them, unwrap them and then wrap them back up and look semi-surprised. But I have sat on top of this one for a week.
I really went into this with no expectations. I entered a proposal for Artprize 2012 this fall. And last week while I was at the Barn for my class I was notified that I had obtained a spot for one of my pieces at Cathedral Square-a really nice venue for this event. I was so EXCITED that I did the little happy dance around the hotel room. Thank goodness Betsy didn't record it on a video camera. And I didn't sleep a wink that night. But I didn't want to tell you until I signed the little contract and actually spoke with the venue curator.
It's a go. It's real. I am in and so excited. And a little nervous because I have yet to make it and it's going to be 6x6. Goal: Composition done by July 15th so the machine quilting can be done is a stress free manner. Haha. I will share my progress along the way this summer.
The first year I went to Artprize I said to myself, "Someday, I want to be there. " :):):):):)
