Sacred Threads Exhibit

I have posted about "Venus Rising:Out of Addiction" in January for a local gallery exhibit. When I made it for the local show I also was planning to enter it in the Sacred Threads Exhibit in the Washington D.C. area which is June 22-July 4, 2011. My quilt was accepted into the exhibit and I just mailed it to Virginia!! I discovered this exhibit in 2007 and said I would enter in 2009 and then spazzed out and missed the deadline so I was alert for 2011. I knew I wanted to have a quilt representing addiction because addiction has affected several close family and friends. The reason for the exhibit is to have spiritiual ideas in quiltmaking. There are six categories-spirituality, joy, inspiration, peace/brotherhood, grief and healing. I chose to put my quilt in the healing category. I will not be going to the exhibit since I do not live near DC and I have a job etc. but they are creating a CD and many of the quilts will be on their website in the future. It is an interesting concept and I will consider doing this again in 2013. The website is for further information.

Blessings on Easter Weekend

This is my quilt named "Venus Rising: Out of Addiction" which I made late last fall for the 4 women exhibit at my local library. I also knew of a national quilt exhibit which in every other year called Sacred Threads Quilts (2011). The theme of this quilt exhibit is spirituality and has subcategories such as peace, joy, healing etc. I received notice by e-mail yesterday that my piece has been selected to be part of the exhibit which will be this summer in the Washington DC area. The website has all the details. Eventually the quilts will be on their website as well.

Then a few weeks ago I received an e-mail from Marina and Dale at a quilt blog They viewed my quilt blog (YEAH) and loved my Homonym/Mad as a March Hare art quilt and asked permission to use it in their quilt inspiration blog. I said yes and it is on their blog today. They were so kind to pick my quilt and it say such nice words about my quilts etc. So I am very blessed to have these two forms of abundance come my way this weekend. Happy Easter!!
